Guys rarely admit it, but they love getting gift baskets, too! It’s not the basket that pumps up a dude’s blood pressure numbers, it’s what’s inside. Pull his heartstrings. Cater to his whims. Provide him with stuff he’ll love and use, and you’ll score points. Things to put in a gift basket for a guy? We’ve got you covered!
1. Play in the Big Leagues
Does your dude get the itch to pitch when spring arrives? Baseball season is excuse enough to ponder gift baskets for guys that always hit a grand slam. Take our clever Baseball Fan Gift Pack, for example. Peanuts? Yup. Popcorn? Of course. Cracker Jacks, too. And enough chocolate to soothe his spirit if his team gets off to a bad start!
2. Don’t shoot the messenger
Gift baskets for men all decked out in camo? Yes, please. The treasures in our Camo Man Care Package are hidden in plain sight. You may want to include a warning when you hand over this assortment of goodies: Don’t open those chips, peanuts, or sausage while hiding in a blind or the noise could compromise your objective, Dude.
3. Rev your engine
We feel your pain. Sometimes, it seems he loves his cycle more than you. But you’re not bitter because you know the way to his heart and handlebars: motorcycle-related items like a bank, bandanna and enough food to fit a properly-sized saddle bag. The Motorcycle Man Gift Basket for guys is so trendy, you’ll accelerate your gift-giving rep big time.
4. Score goals wearing PJs
Ordering gift baskets for men requires very little effort. He watches the game. Drinks a brew. And if half-time entertainment is a turn off for you, use your device to order our Football Time Gift Pail so it arrives in time for next week’s game. Not only will you feed your guy’s inner punter with goodies like TGI Friday’s cheddar bacon chips and Jack Links, but there are toys in there, too. Who doesn’t want a football penalty foul flag? Just sayin’.
5. Can't give him a mulligan? How about a basket?
Ah, golf. Blood pressure spikes guaranteed—both for those sand trap “visits” and greens shots that give guys cred at the 19th (watering) hole. Can a duffer own too many balls and tees? Not in our opinion, which is why our Birdies Gift Basket for Golfers flies off shelves faster than long drives. If your man doesn’t drink coffee, no worries. Turn the mug on its side, hand him a putter and make his day.

6. A sign of the times: The personalized pen
Once upon a time, gentlemen wouldn’t think of leaving home without a fountain pen, and the trend is happily returning. Our Personalized Vintage Black Leather Wrapped Pen looks like a pricey fountain pen but it is neither. It does, however, feature a sleek black leather and silver case design. Personalization is free up to 15 characters. And we don’t make judgments about your inscription requests.

7. Go Fish!
Some of the best things for put in a gift basket for a guy is fishing gear. Putting out a line and anticipating a catch that’s worthy of bragging rights requiring no exaggeration is the epitome of recreation for men who love to fish. This sport knows no season, so whether it’s open water, stream or ice fishing, our two sizes of wicker Fisherman’s Gift Baskets belong atop your gift-buying list. Included are food, a mug, gummy worms, a picture frame, and a guide that makes a great read while waiting for line tugs.
8. The vice that comes with prestige
Macanudo. Romeo y Julieta. Montecristo. Dare we leave Choiba off the list? These cigar brands are the crème de la crème and deserve to be stored in a proper environment. Our Personalized Cherry Wood Cigar Humidor does more than safeguard a guy’s treasures. When his pals check out the personalization you’ve been thoughtful enough to add—well, all we can say is that envy is never a good trait to display among friends!

9. Being bossed around?
You’re not alone. In fact, if you seek an appropriate gift for a boss, you know it can be a delicate dance in this day and age of appropriate and inappropriate rules. We’ve got you covered. There’s no misinterpreting this medley of Morning Wake Up Coffee and Tea Gift products that includes cookies, biscotti, and chocolate truffles. The coffee is Starbucks. The tea? Tazo. Your boss may wonder how much he’s paying you when he gets this basket!

10. Do you need glasses?
No eye doctor necessary if you want to win friends, influence people and become the gift-giver your mom trained you to be. Our classic Monogram Pint Glass Sets look best if they're bearing the monogram of someone you want to impress. Know a guy who takes pride in his home bar? Give this gift next time an occasion arises and there's a solid chance a permanent stool at his pub will be perpetually reserved for you.
Room precludes us from writing about other “just for guys” gift baskets, but heck, if we told you about every one of them, you’d blame us for subjecting you to basket overload. That’s no way to treat a shopper looking for unique, customized gifts men actually want to receive. Our ideas are boundless. Yours may be, too.
Maybe we should collaborate and put an end to the “guy gifts as usual” movement. Whether you’ve got a far-fetched gift basket idea, or you want to write us a fan letter, knock yourself out (use one of our personalized pens to do the job). We’ve also been known to borrow clever ideas for things to put in a gift basket for a guy, so don't be shy. We would love to hear from you, with or without your photos!
