The Perfect Father's Day Gift Basket

May 8, 2008
Having trouble finding a gift for the most important man in your life? Instead of buying him another tie, you may want to check into a Father's Day gift basket for your father or the father of your children. By designing your own gift basket, you can give an inexpensive gift that has a personal touch.

To make a father feel like a prince, you could design an elaborate basket with spa and grooming items in it. You can buy complete grooming kits relatively cheap at any department store. You could also include a back or foot massager in your basket to help a father relax after a long day at work. You might also treat him with a gift certificate to a full day at the local spa where he can be pampered and spoiled. A thick, fuzzy robe and a pair of comfortable slippers would be a nice finishing touch on your Father's Day Basket.

Another idea for a father-oriented gift basket is one that includes supplies for his afternoons over the barbecue grill. You could buy tongs, spatulas, a barbecue sauce brush, and all the other utensils that the barbecue master in your life might need. You could also include salt, pepper, seasoned salt, and any number of other spices so he has easy access to them in the backyard or on the patio. Perhaps you would want to include a few small bottles of various barbecue sauce to give him the opportunity to experiment and find his favorite. A nice barbecue apron would nicely round out your barbecue gift basket.

For the golfer in your life, a golf-themed Father's Day gift basket may be ideal. You can purchase golf balls as well as golf tees along with a nice pair of gloves that are especially designed to allow him to get a better grip on his golf club as he swings. If you know of a golf course that your father has always wanted to play on, you could check into buying him a gift certificate for a few free rounds of golf on his dream course. A new golf hat and towel would also be a nice addition to your golfing gift basket.

One of the easiest gift baskets to design for Father's Day is one that is based on a sports team. Finding items with the team's logo on them should be relatively easy, especially for basketball, baseball, and football. You might want to purchase tickets to include in your gift basket so that your dad can go to see his favorite team play in person, although this can be an expensive endeavor. You can also include clothing items such as a team T-shirt, hat, sweatshirt, and jacket. There are numerous other sports-themed items available that you may want to add such as a team key ring, coffee mug, or even a stuffed mascot. You should also remember to include the must-have item for all avid sports fans- a big foam finger. No couch athlete can cheer his favorite team without one.

These are just a few of the many gift baskets that you can design for Father's Day. No matter what theme that you decide upon, your father will get much more enjoyment out of a Father's Day gift basket than he would out of a tie.
