We packaged up a leather Heritage nail and tool bag in a vintage tin picnic basket for Dad, complete with all of the grilling goodies he needs for summer: Schmidt Bros. Lockwood BBQ tongs, spatula and fork {these are so well made}, more Stuart & Co. sauces and rubs, Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. small batch tonic, and some Market dish towels {<— we used these as napkins, too!}.
