Grilled Father's Day mealPicking out the perfect Father's Day gift is both an art and a science. The gift needs elements of both form and function, should be from the heart without necessarily being sappy, and needs to speak to his personality while also helping him be the best man he can be (no pressure or anything).

So when another specialty-themed tie or "Kiss the Cook" apron just won't do, where do you turn? With a few shopping days to go, we've got 8 ideas for the charcoal-loving, burger-flipping grillmaster in your life:

#1 Cuisinart Stuffed Burger Press$7.19

Does your dad love to post pictures of his charbroiled creations on Instagram? This burger press not only helps him take his burger game to the next level with delicious fillings, but it will give him perfectly uniform patties that are picture-perfect every time. (And it'll be fun to watch him try to make the burgers "Say Cheese!")

#2 Outset Oyster Grill Pan$30.06

He may not be able to shoot them raw, but if your ol' man loves the smoky taste of oysters fresh off the grill, then this non-stick, cast iron oyster pan is the way to go. Perfect for even-cooking and a delightful presentation, he'll be able to serve up these delicious appetizers in batches of 12. (Just don't forget the garlic-herb butter, too!)

#3 BBQ Dragon Fan$49.95

Which sounds cooler: a charcoal chimney or a BBQ Dragon? Both get your charcoal grill started safely without the use of lighter fluid, but the BBQ Dragon does so quickly, easily, hands-free, and it just sounds 10X cooler! And not only does it work on grills and smokers, it's also great for fireplaces and campfires, too! 

#4 Gaswatch Bluetooth Propane-Level Indicator$44.75

No matter how vigilant he is, your grillmaster father is bound to run out of propane at an inopportune moment at some point in his life (it's okay, it happens to the best of us). To help him minimize the risk of this dinner time disaster, this Bluetooth-enabled propane-level indicator will allow him to check propane levels from his smartphone and will even alert him with his supply is getting low!

#5 Grill Beast Pulled-Pork Shredder Meat Clawz$12.47

Whether his favorite is pulled pork, chicken, or brisket, shredding a tenderloin—no matter how tender—can be a bit of a pain without the right tools. These heat-resistant "claws" will allow him to tear, shred, and carve anything straight off the grill or out of the smoker with ease! And he'll get to pretend to be a bear which is a priceless gift in its own right.

#6 Stainless Steel Hot Dog Roller$14.99

Even with access to the best grilling technology right in their own backyards, some people just prefer classic roller dogs. Give pops the best of both worlds with this motorized hot dog griller! Let this bad boy do all the work for dear ol' dad and get perfect dogs every time! Plus, this automated "assistant" will allow him focus to the steaks and other fine foods that need a little more TLC.

#7 Chefs Kitchen 7-Piece Outdoor BBQ Apron and Utensil Set$20.49

When we said your dad doesn't need another apron, we meant he doesn't need another boring apron. Not only does this sweet accessory keep stains at bay, but it also keeps salt, pepper, tongs, an oven mitt, a spatula, and a fork within reach at all times. Now your dad won't have to spend half the barbecue wondering where he set something down!

#8 Monogrammed Steak Brand & Carving Board$69.95

If you're looking for a gift with a bit more of a personal touch, let your family's patriarch sear his initials into every fine steak, burger, pork chop, and chicken breast that comes off the grill with a hand-forged iron brand of his monogram. Now every dish can truly be his signature dish! This one even comes with a matching carving board!
