How To Create The Perfect Gift Basket For The Man In Your Life

For the most part, men are pretty easy to shop for. However, there are those men who will cause you to pull your hair out because you just can’t figure out what to get them. You know the type of man I am talking about. The one who already seems to have everything.

If you’ve got one of these guys at home, you know just how difficult it can be to find the perfect gift for them. When a guy already has all the socks, shirts, ties, hats, cologne and jewellery he can handle, what else can you get him that would bring him joy? The saying goes, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach – so ideas like for Australian Men and for guys in New Zealand are great places to start.

Ever consider a gift basket? Gift baskets are by far one of the best gifts for men. I’m sure you are sitting there with a silly smirk on your face saying ìyeah right, there is no way I am getting a gift basket for the man in my lifeî. Now before you close out this article and completely dismiss the idea, let me explain.

The great thing about gift baskets is there are absolutely no rules. You can put it together however you see fit. And while most would consider a gift basket a feminine gift, men these days don’t think that way. We now live in a very socially progressive world. As long as you tailor the gift basket to his taste, there is a good chance the man in your life would love to receive such a gift.

To make the perfect gift basket you must first find the right basket. Keep in mind this is for a man and not your 80-year-old grandma. This basket needs to have a very bold look. Opt for a square basket versus around one as it has more of a masculine feel.

If you can’t find a square basket, a box or large bowl will do just fine. Try going against the grain and picking out a non-traditional base. In other words, avoid anything that can be perceived as too girly. This is the quickest way to turn your man off.

Once you have the base you can move on to the fun part. Now its time to load it up with all the things you know the man in your life would love. Since you already have knowledge about this individual, finding things to put in the basket should be relatively easy. If you need to, sit down a make a list of all the things the gift recipient enjoys. This could be food, sports teams, clothing brands, activities, and anything that you can think of that interests him.

Try to zero in on the one thing you know he loves the most. Use that as the theme for the gift basket. For example, if you know he loves a particular professional football team, consider using the team colours to decorate the basket. If you want, you could even make the entire focus of the basket that particular team.

If he is a true sports fan, he will absolutely love something that represents his favourite team. If you opt to go this route, get online and visit the team’s store. You can find everything from socks, to jackets, to jerseys, to headbands. If you can afford it, consider getting him tickets to a game. This is sure to bring a smile to his face.

No matter how you choose to decorate the gift basket when done right the man in your life is sure to love it. Just remember to make it about him and not about you. For creative ideas Google ìgift basket ideas for menî.
