Giving him the saw for your February anniversary sounds like a good compromise. And, as fast as time is passing, February will be here before you know it.

I agree with Barbara. There is always Valentines Day or Fathers Day.

I saw the pictures of the grill and the saw. You could get him the grill for Christmas and save the saw for another holiday present.

I'd go with what he WANTS rather than what he needs. Does he prefer to use the saw to build, or does he prefer to use the grill? You said he has "wanted" a miter saw, and then said he "needs" a grill. I'm guessing he wants the saw!

Which will he use more? How often does he grill? How often does he use his saw?

I would go with whichever he will get more use out of.

Not sure on the sales. Ridgid doesn't go on sale often at all.
As for what he wants, that would be both. He wants so badly to build that outdoor kitchen, he can't stand it. I think I'm going to go with the grill, as he can still grill, even if it's cold. He won't use the saw until it warms up anyway.
Thanks for everyones imput, I really appreciate it!!

You're asking a bunch of foodies on a coking site whether they prefer a grill or a saw as a gift?

I think you're "looking for" a certain answer!

But then he would get lots of use out of his saw, making more!
