I'm putting together a present for my brother, who works long and irregular hours and therefore doesn't have much time to cook or shop. I was going to get him a stovetop grill pan (was thinking about the Calaphon One, if anyone has an opinion -- nonstick to reduce cleaning time), and also wanted to include an assortment of rubs or marinade spices. I've recently become a huge fan of homemade marinades, but am wondering whether anyone sells good spice combos that you could then just combine with oil/soy or other liquid and be ready to go? I don't want to buy pre-made marinade in bottles, b/c I assume then he'll only use each one once before it goes bad. Alternatively, recs on not-too-spicy rubs would also be appreciated, since I know nothing about those.
