We all have that one person on our list. If you ask them what they want for Christmas, they humbly respond, “I don’t need anything, I’m just glad to spend time with you.” As lovely a sentiment that is, they are still getting a gift and this does not help us find something they’ll love. If they are tailgating pros, they probably do already have everything. However, there is still something that you can stack under the tree that they may not have yet. Here’s our guide to the coolest and most unusual gadgets perfect for the tailgating pros that have everything
Tailgating Gadgets Under $25
Six Pack Suspenders, $19.99
When we think of suspenders, we definitely think of Urkel. However, these Six Pack Suspenders are really cool. They hold an entire six-pack, leaving your hands free. You can walk around the stadium handing out beers to your friends. You can wear them while grilling. That way you don’t have to run back and forth from the cooler. The best part is the can holders are koozies. You won’t have to worry about your beers getting cold while you wear them!
If your tailgating pro loves hotdogs, the Slotdog is a must! It cuts a grid onto your dog. Making it perfectly crispy and juicy. The grid also helps any toppings stay on the dog. So you can load up your dogs with chili, cheese, sauerkraut, and whatever else you love to pile on. It’s easy to use and dishwasher friendly.
Food Fan Fly Trap, $19.99
Nothing is worse than when your tailgate gets overrun with flies. Flies zappers can get noisy and a lot of types of fly traps are pretty gross. Enter the Food Fan Fly Trap. Designed to be set next to your tailgating spread, the Food Fan Fly Trap takes care of flies by circulating the air. This deters flies from landing on your food. The Food Fan Fly Trap also keeps dust and other debris off your food.

Speaking of fans, consider gifting this Portable Neck Fan to the tailgating pros in your life. It’s essentially a wearable air conditioner.

The first is the complete Spin Chill which comes with a spinning device. The second is a bit that fits on any standard drill. Either device ensures no more warm beers!
Tailgating Gadgets Under $50
Lava Buns Heated Seat Cushion, $29.99
Stadium seats are not the most comfortable. That’s why many tailgating pros always bring a cushion with them to games. Rather than simply bringing a pad, they can bring a Lava Buns Heated Seat Cushion. This is great for winter games to keep you warm in the stadium. It helps toast your buns, which will keep your whole body warm.
Mobile Charging Telescopic Stool, $36.99
We love multifunctional devices as tailgating pros. The more functions an item has, the more we can do at our tailgate with less hassle. The Mobile Charging Telescopic Stool is a great multifunctional gadget to have at a tailgate. It both doubles as a charging station and as an extra seat for anyone joining your tailgate. Your phones will stay charged for the game and you’ll always have an extra place to sit when needed!
LED Grilling Tool Set, $40.00
Tailgating is usually a daytime activity, but in the winter the sun goes down early. So grilling can be a bit tricky in the dark. Even though the grill flames and streetlight provide some light, it can still be hard to tell when your steak is at the level of doneness you and your guests love. Enter the LED Grilling Tool Set. With built-in LED lights, you’ll be able to see your grilled items easily no matter how dark it is outside.
Lunatec Hydration Spray Bottle, $40.00
Staying hydrated at the games is important. We’re out in the sun all day and drinking. The Lunatec Hydration Spray Bottle has a dual function. It is a water bottle to keep you hydrated but also has a built-in spray. The sprayer can be used to keep you cool under the hot sun. However, it can also be used to clean up spills or to wash your hands. It’s the perfect accessory for tailgating.
