Are you struggling to find the perfect gift idea for an awesome guy in your life?
I don’t know about you, but shopping for men is actually really hard. They don’t tell you what they want and usually, they’re pretty easy-going. Which is awesome for most of the year, but when it’s time to give them a gift, it makes it a challenge.

Whether he is a sports fan, loves to fish, barbecue, drink beer, loves the outdoors or whatever his hobbies may be, it’s easy to turn it into a gift basket for his birthday, Father’s Day or an anniversary.
DIY Sports Gift Basket
Most guys love sports, so whether it’s football, golf, basketball, tennis or running, it’s easy to take his favorite sport and turn it into a sports gift basket.
What I love about this particular basket idea, is you can take an inexpensive dollar store container and change the sport based on how you decorate the container with red Duct tape.
you can add sports tickets if you want to splurge, replacement golf balls and tees, special Nike socks, a gift card, his favorite beer he likes to drink when he’s playing his favorite sport, themed ornaments, a funny sports shirt or cool hat.

DIY BBQ Gift Basket
What is it about men and their grills? Some men definitely love to cook, but many men seem to shun the indoor cooking and prefer the grill master task outdoors over a flame. Either way, don’t you love it when they cook??
We purchased specialty salts and the meat claws for my husband this past year, he LOVES them! They both make the perfect inexpensive gift for dad’s who love to grill and you’re looking for something unique.

Unless he doesn’t drink it all, most males would appreciate an alcohol-themed gift basket. Assuming the gift giver is an adult of course.
Whether it be filled with his favorite six-pack and snacks, specialty beers from around the world or local brews, wines from a certain year or destination, or maybe all of the ingredients to make his special drink, you have lots of options. This is an easy gift basket to make casual or sophisticated.

DIY Gardening Gift Basket
If dad loves to garden, grow vegetables, or take care of his yard, this adorable DIY gardening gift basket idea would be perfect!
Even if he already has some of these supplies, hoses, spray nozzles and gloves get worn, and duplicates of nice tools are great to have. Or sometimes, it’s nicer to give higher quality upgrades as a gift they wouldn’t otherwise buy for themselves.
