1. Comfort his feet. Barbecuing over a grill for long hours can leave dad tired and his feet exhausted. Fix that problem with an anti-fatigue mat from WellnessMats. They have decorative options for your kitchen, but their Maxum Mats (from $129.95, are designed to handle a bit more abuse. They're easy to clean in case dad makes a mess.

2. Scrub-a-dub-dub.  We read a shocking statistic last week: Your grill may be dirtier than your toilet seat. In a word: Yuck! Encourage dad to wipe away germs and grime before he gets down to the grilling with Sur La Table's Grill Brush Steam Cleaner ($17.99,

3. What temp do you have? Sure, you can poke and prod your piece of pork, but are you really at 145 degrees? Without a thermometer, it's hard to know for sure. Help dad make sure all your food is done to the right temperature with a wireless thermometer like the Thermapen from ThermoWorks ($96, It reads in 3 seconds and has a battery life of  1,500 hours. Plus, it's available in 14 colors, so you can get one in his team's colors.
