I’m always on the look out for great Gift Basket Ideas and have come up with a few especially for men.

I’m using Home & Garden Party products, but you can easily adapt them to your line or what you have on hand.

For The Wannabe Chef:

Fill our Bean Pot with Carr’s crackers, smoke flavoring, packets of chili seasoning & hot sauce. Wrap with cello and a plaid (or coordinating) bow with a masculine tag. He can make great chili with very little work!

For The Shower:

Take a citrus or clean-smelling set of shower gel & lotion, a small wooden handled scrub brush and a rolled wash cloth or two, put in a wire basket from the dollar store and wrap in cello… I suggest our Orange Blossom, Coconut Lime or Spearmint Eucalyptus scents.

Coffee Hound:

Fill a wire basket with shred, add packets of gourmet coffee/cocoa and our “Life is Good” latte cup. Maybe add a mug warmer and wrap in a coordinating napkin.

Time For Our Date:

We have some beautiful clocks with dark stain. Wrap one, like our Hideaway Box Clock, in a delicate silk or chiffon scarf with a note inside saying, “Meet me at __________ (place).” Set the time on the clock to the time of your rendezvous!
