So, you want to give a man in your life the bast gift basket you possibly can, but you do not have the budget to do that much? Never fear. I have six great ways that you can do a budget friendly gift basket that will make him smile. I am going to give you some ideas of what you can put into a gift basket based on six different themes that men are usually into.
Theme 1: Sports
If your man is into sports, make him a sports gift basket. Get a large football shaped chip bowl and some decorative grass. Inside Leave a jersey from his favorite team, a coffee cup with the teams design, a football, and maybe a DVD of that teams best games. Most of the items on this list will be in the $5.00-$10.00 range. The jersey may be a little more expensive depending on the team.
Theme 2: Bathroom items
For this gift basket, get any type of basket for the items to go in and decorative grass. Inside the basket you will place only items that he would use in the bathroom. Some items that could be included are razors, shaving cream, shower gel, shampoo, and conditioner. If he listens to music while he is in the bathroom, get him a CD. Another way you could decorate the inside of the gift basket is to line the bottom with a towel and washcloth in his favorite color.
Theme 3: Motorcycles
For this theme, in the basket place a gremlin bell, if he does not already have one. Also, you can get a watch with motorcycle face, riding glasses for daytime, and another pair for at night. If they collect motorcycles you can also add one or two motorcycle figurines. I usually give my old man a new pair of each set of riding glasses every Christmas.
Theme 4: Office
If your man is into a career in the executive world, make him a picture of the family for him to put on the desk. Along with this some other items to include with his Christmas gift basket would be nice pens, a day planner, a desk calendar, a wall calendar, maybe a nice small clock as well.
Theme 5: His favorite movie
If your man is into say the movie Scarface, get him a bunch of small items or shirts with the Scarface, Tony Montana, theme to them. Get him a copy of the movie if he does not already have it. I know for the movie Scarface, you can get a wallet, shirts, and even lamps with the logo on it.
Theme 6: Food
Pack a basket full of all of his favorite snacks. You can put chips, candy, popcorn, summer sausage, and crackers in it. I would suggest with this one making it closer to the time of it being open if you add cheeses or something perishable to the contents of the gift basket.
These are just a few possible themes to get the gift basket ideas pumping. I hope that I was able to help you in deciding to make the perfect gift basket for the special man that deserves a special Christmas treat this year.
