Are you looking for a good gift idea for the man in your life? Are you
never quite sure what to get him? Does he have t-shirts and ties you
have gotten him hidden in the back of your closet? Even if your man is
hard to buy for, there are great ideas out there. If you cannot think of
a good gift for your man or are tired of giving him the same old thing,
consider a gift basket. Most men have some type of hobby. It might be
hunting, fishing, golf, or grilling out. No matter what your man likes
to do, chances are you can find a gift basket that will make him happy!
You can purchase gift baskets online, but if you do not have enough time
for it to be shipped, you can check your local stores. There may be
stores that specifically make gift baskets listed in the phone book. If
not, you might contact a local florist as many of them also make gift
baskets for special occasions. If you cannot find a local shop and you
do not have time to order online, do not panic. Making your own basket
is easy enough. You can purchase a basket at any crafts store, use a
blanket, apron, or paper to line it and stuff it full of goodies for your
Here are a few gift basket ideas:
Grilling Gift Basket - Most men love to grill out. If this describes
your man, a grilling basket is a great gift idea. You can fill it with
many things but you may want to start with a cute apron. You can go
with one that is a cute pattern, like fish, chili peppers, or camouflage.
On the other hand, you may be able to find an apron with a cute saying
like “Kiss the Chef” or one a little more risqué like “Barbecue Naked -
Show Off Your Buns.” On top of that, you can place grilling utensils
such as a fork, spatula, brush or tongs. You can also throw in your
favorite bottle of barbecue sauce and a nice bottle of wine to enjoy when
the grilling is done.
Gone Fishing Gift Basket - If your man likes to fish, he will love a
customized Gone Fishing gift basket. Not only will he enjoy the items in
the basket, but also know that in giving him this, you are also giving
him a day of fishing! You can line this basket with paper and pile in
all his fishing favorites. One nice item to add would be a portable
fishing scale/tape measure so he can see exactly how big his catch is.
You can also load the basket with scented bait, a trout blaster hook,
lures, a bait dip net, a pair of Titanium Pliers – the possibilities are
endless. You might even throw in the new reel he has had his eye on!
You can also fill his basket with snacks for your angler like toasted
sesame seed crackers, beef jerky, salted peanuts, and Oreo cookies. If
you can find some cute fabric with fish on it, use that to make a bow on
top of the basket.
NASCAR Gift Basket - NASCAR fans love almost anything NASCAR gift
related. You can fill your man’s basket with his favorite driver’s toy
replica cars or a coffee cup with his favorite driver’s number and
colors. You can add to the basket a hat, t-shirt, bumper stickers,
coasters, magnets, or a key chain. Does your man like to play darts?
There are even NASCAR darts! If you really want to give him something
extra special, order tickets to his favorite NASCAR race ahead of time
and hide those in his basket.
Hunting Gift Basket - If your man likes to hunt, many things can be used
to fill a gift basket. Look for picture frames of ducks, deer – whatever
he likes to hunt. You may be able to find a clay pigeon letter holder, a
bullet box he can keep on his desk to store paper clips, or a DVD on how
to be a more successful hunter. You can peruse your local hunting goods
store to get plenty of good ideas.
No matter what you man likes, he will love a basket filled with goodies
of his favorite hobby or sport. He will also love knowing that you took
the time to get him something you knew he would really enjoy!
