The exciting conclusion of our Gift Guide spotlights and corresponding discounts–Employee Recommended Gifts–is a selection of items we’d recommend this holiday season, for the person you’re not quite sure about, but know they’d like a Classic Accessories gift under the tree. These are the tried and true products that didn’t quite make it into other sections, or we felt were general enough to be both a nice way to round out a Classic collection or as a great Classic starter gift.
Spotlight: Ravenna Grill Cover
The top spot on this section of the gift guide went to the Medium Ravenna Grill Cover. Amanda has this to say about her Ravenna Grill Cover:
“We’ve had our Ravenna Grill Cover for three years now. It’s been through every season Washington has to offer with record highs, lows and rainfall! My husband is a year-round griller and we make sure to keep our Weber ready at a moment’s notice with our cover. Super easy to put on, and the neutral grey looks great in our backyard setting. Great gift to give any time of year, but especially great for the Holidays. “

During out employee survey, Ravenna was called out specifically in reference to the brand of grill cover that people were hoping to purchase by 1/2 of those who wanted to give patio covers this year.

Day 3 features Gifts for the Lawn or Grill Master in your life.
Show them you notice the hours they’ve put into the lawn. Let them know you’ve seen the love they’ve given their tools in the garage. Show them your appreciation for that last grand BBQ. Give your Lawn or Grill Master a cover so they can keep their favorite tools and grills in top shape for the long haul.
Spotlight: Grill Cover
Grill covers raise the convenience factor in grilling, helping a favorite grill be ready to use even at times when the weather is less than agreeable. Dorik, our resident Grill Master, appreciates this aspect of grill covers stating:
“I like to cook outdoors year round, even in bad weather. The cover makes it easy. I usually keep one buckle attachment on for the stormy days and I can unclip it and [know] the grill is basically ready to fire up. It makes it easy to start cooking at any time.”
Grill Covers were ranked 4th by our employees as gifts they’d like to receive, and 1st as something they’d like to give to someone else (see poll results here). Most who mentioned the grill cover as a gift were wanting to give it to someone who had recently invested in a new grill (and were loving it). It’s hard to top a grill as a gift, but you can complement it with a cover.
Each day 12/4-12/8 we’ll be offering a special discount on the the featured portion of our Holiday Gift Guide.
Today, we’re looking at Gifts for the Outdoorsman.

Classic has equipment, covers, and accessories that will make their lifelong experience with their gear in the outdoors more enjoyable.
Spotlight: Pontoon Boats
Pontoon boats are a great way to help get a friend out on the water and get to the fish they’re seeking. Matt, an employee here, enjoys Classic Accessories pontoon boats because, “they’re fun to be on the water with,” noting that the pontoon boats provide him with a great deal of maneuverability. “They’re easy to use and the flexibility is endless.”
Notably, pontoon boats were ranked 3rd by our employees as gifts they’d like to receive, and 6th as something they’d like to give to someone else (see poll results here). The Colorado XT and Colorado XTS were mentioned by name during the poll as being the most desirable pontoon boats.

When it comes to the biggest dinner of the year, we all find ourselves in “this camp, or that camp” with very little wiggle room. Thanksgiving has always been a wonderful time for family and friends filled with an abundance of delicious food and meaningful memories made together. We had a little fun with how things are done in our co-workers’ homes this holiday: What camp are you in?
From all of us at Classic Accessories, we wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Pumpkin carving and quick tips with Classic Accessories:
How to use Tracing Paper to Transfer A Design to a Pumpkin:
Create your design on one side of the tracing paper.
Flip the paper over and carefully trace the design on the opposite (reversed) side with a #2 pencil.
Place the reverse side (from step 2) against the pumpkin where you would like your design to go.
Trace your original design with a pencil or do a soft rubbing being sure to apply pressure to all lines on the design.
Preserving the pumpkin:
For those of you who don’t want to spray bleach onto your pumpkin, we’ve heard that these concoctions can work as well:
Lemon Juice and Water 1:1 ratio or Tea tree oil and Grape seed extracts
Alternative Carving Method:
Not a fan of solid lines and shapes?
Use a drill to create a pattern of holes in the pumpkin skin.
Adding dimension to the pumpkin carving:
You can create a second layer of dimension by only partially carving into the pumpkin flesh in some places and going all of the way through in others.
For fun colors when you don’t have a special candle or light, place a battery-powered tea light or lantern into the pumpkin and place a layer of tissue paper against the interior of the carved area of the pumpkin.
Instead of cutting out the stem, cut the entry hole into the pumpkin from the underside. Instead of putting a flame into the pumpkin, you have a plate to set the candle on—and only have to worry about placing the carved pumpkin around the flame.
Spend more time outdoors with your favorite pumpkin designs. Happy Halloween!
