You probably have at least one semi-carnivore in your family or close circle of friends. These zealous meat-eaters often berate your love of salads and yogurt, insisting that they need “real food”, which for them means one thing: steak! But you love them for who they are. Their presence brings joy to your life. So what should you buy them for them on gift-giving occasions? Here are your top 5 gift ideas for the steak lover in your life.
#1: A Funny Steak-lover T-Shirt
Nothing makes a statement like a funny t-shirt. If you search Amazon and other major retail sites, you should be able to find a t-shirt or suitable article of clothing that captures the steak-loving sentiment of your loved one and will provide a topic for laughter, proud pictures, and fun memories for years to come. You should be mindful of the person’s dress size and color preferences.
#2: A Cast Iron Skillet
For steak lovers who possess exceptional skills in the kitchen, a cast iron skillet might be the ideal gift. Real steak-lovers who fancy themselves as part-time chefs, can never have too many of these versatile cooking tools. It would be a good idea to do a little investigating before making your purchase to ensure you don’t buy the same iron skillet they already own.
#3: A Cast Iron Cleaner
Anybody who has experienced the frustration, or worse, utter agony of trying to wash a cast iron skillet with a regular dish sponge, can attest to how well a cast iron cleaner/scrubber would make a great gift for a steak-lover. If you’re concerned this might come across as cheap, then give it as an add-on. But don’t underestimate its practical value. Given how tedious the clean-up process can be, you’ll probably be thanked more for the cast iron scrubber than any other steak-themed gift.
#4: A Special Steak-Themed Dinner Plate
Buying a steak–themed dinner plate can also be a funny but very pragmatic gift for a steak lover. However, you must ensure that the plate you choose is meant for eating and not pure decoration. This is entirely acceptable and your gift will be a cherished kitchen or living room ornament. If on the other hand, you want to give a plate that will be used for eating steaks, then you must verify that it is microwaveable and dishwasher safe.
#5: A Steak Knife
Rounding out the top 5 gifts for a steak-lover is the most dangerous option, a steak knife. Although it’s practical, affordable, and will be gratefully received, a steak knife should only be considered if you’re absolutely confident in the person’s mental state and competence in the kitchen. You don’t want to burden your conscience with even the possibility of carrying guilt for any unforeseen trips to the Emergency Room, or worse, because of carelessness or emotional instability. So you should think really long and hard about this one.
Well, there you have it: Your top 5 gift options for the steak-lover in your life. Have fun. Choose wisely.Steak-Lover
