Try These Ideas for a Great Men's Gift Basket

May 25, 2008
Are you looking for a gift for one of the men in your life? Want to wish Dad a happy Father's Day? Is it time to congratulate a friend on a promotion? Mr. Right's birthday coming up next week? Whatever the occasion, a gift basket is a wonderful way to give men just what they need, or something they would really appreciate.

There's a lot of choice when it comes to gift baskets for men. A mini chuck wagon can be overflowing with his beloved beef jerky. A miniature James Bond Aston Martin may open up to reveal the aftershave he's wanted to try. An ordinary basket can hold a selection of that specialty beer that just came out.

A golf basket chock full of golf balls and miniature clubs is another great choice. Or a replica antique truck containing a selection of his favorite snacks. Select an assortment of chocolates that no man can refuse. Opt for the bucket full of sports pennants and a baseball that sits beside his favorite chips to munch while watching the game.

Looking for something for the outdoor type? A man's gift basket may be full of pine cones and fish hooks. Or, it can hold a miniature pair of skis that decorate a basket full of fine hot chocolate to be enjoyed at the end of a run. Pick out a basket full of fine coffee and you've got a present he may have to fight off his friends to enjoy.

A gourmet would love a wine and cheese basket. How about Syrah with Gouda or Brie? Port with Muenster? Cheddar and Gewrztraminer? He'll be thrilled with your elegant, tasty gift basket.

Try to fit your gift basket to the theme of the occasion you're helping this man celebrate. If you're giving him the gift to congratulate him on moving ahead in his career, a pen set with a diary full of motivational sayings would be suitable. If someone has won a prize for creating a ship in a bottle, he'd love a basket with tiny ships and a bottle of excellent wine in it, while the star of the local bowling alley would prefer small bowling balls with his bottle.

Looking for a way to tell a man how what a lovely person he is even though he's not celebrating anything in particular? There's a great barbecue gift basket that comes with a protective apron, great barbecue tools and all sorts of delicious sauces. Try to get a basket with a message that tells everyone that this man is the 'World's Greatest Husband' (or brother / father / whatever the relationship). You could also add a personalized message of your own.

Whether you're searching for a personal gift or a business occasion, you're sure to find something for your guy that fits the circumstances. Maybe it's to celebrate a birthday, a big win on the golf course, or that once in a lifetime business success. No matter what the reason, there's a gift basket for men that will help him celebrate in style.
