While searching for great Mother’s Day gifts, I found some ideas products that make wonderful bundling gifts. Would your recipient love to rip open the gift and find accessories tucked around the main event.

They’ll really love it bundled it with the Mr. BBQ 12″ Non-stick Grilling Skillet. It keeps whatever they’re cooking in one place and out of the coals. Includes removable handle.
The Mesh Nonstick 3-in-1 Grill Pan also makes a fantastic partner gift. A deep grill basket, skillet and covered basket all in one for excellence on the grill.

Or, the Mr. BBQ Marinade & Serving Caddy works as a great
buddy gift with either or both of the gift ideas above. Makes marinading easy. Includes marinade and grill trays. After grilling, they’ll rinse and use the grill tray to bring in the bounty.
The Chelsea Flatware might be the perfect gift. How often do we keep old and/or mismatched utensils? Gifting four of the 5-piece settings will cover them for the more intimate dinner parties. At this great price, you might double that for an excellent shared gift.
