What’s a tailgate without some grilling? Consider these items for the grill master of your tailgate party.

Gift your party’s chef a licensed apron to give them their own version of a home jersey. You can match their grilling apron with spatulas, tongs and forks donning their team’s crest and name.

And don’t forget the grill itself. Licensed grill brushes and grill covers can help the fan on your list keep their barbecue spick and span.

Another good stocking stuffer for any sports fan is small apparel accessories. Knit caps and gloves can be great for cold-weather tailgates. In addition, once the season is over, your fan can stay warm through the winter months.

Don’t just stop at seasonal gear. Team-specific socks can be the perfect accessory to take their outfit to champion status.
