18 Homemade Father’s Day Gift Baskets
When a holiday is near, we try to find ideas to please our loved ones and show them our appreciation; and Father’s Day is certainly one of these holidays.
Giving gifts and handmade cards are very common, but some people prefer introducing Father’s Day gift baskets, to ensure a variety of things that men usually love. So, whether you are a kid, a wife, a girl friend, you will find here all what you need to please your loved man and provide him a warm holiday.
There are many things that you can include in Father’s Day gift baskets, and personalize them as well, according to what your dad/man loves. You can use luxury baskets, metal buckets, paper baskets/buckets, glass jars and handmade fabric bags.
I personally recommend choosing what your father would love most, and what suits the type of gifts you include. For example, metal/plastic buckets are suitable for the simplest gifts, like tools sets, snacks and candy. Paper baskets are too suitable for light snacks, and kids can make and paint them as Father’s Day crafts.

Wine and gourmet Father’s Day gift baskets are the most elegant and expensive among all. You may order them online or buy them from a nearby store. But what to do if your budget is small? Simply buy them yourself. Choose simple snacks and beer cans from the market, write a warm note and pack all in hand-painted bucket.
If your father loves fishing or camping, this can be your best option, especially if you can buy him fishing net or whatever he needs in his trip.
There are also nice and neat ideas for Father’s Day gift baskets, like grooming, shower and body care products, or car care package. Many people prefer these gifts on any other, because they are really useful and practical.
Sport buckets, barbecue essentials, coffee baskets, cocoa drinks, snacks, crispy nuts and dried fruits make great gifts for fathers and boy friends.
What to keep in mind when you prepare Father’s Day gift baskets?
1- Your budget.
You should think of all the stuff that your father/man loves, collect these ideas and then choose from them according to your budget.
2- The time schedule.
It is important that you give yourself enough time before the holiday, to be able to find the items or order them online, in case they are not in local stores.
3- The stuff you need.
Like the basket, bucket or jar you will be using. The carton paper, glue and colors, if you will craft it with your kids. The decorations you will add/wrap around the basket.
4- The size of the container.
you certainly can’t buy, prepare or recycle a container/basket before buying the gifts and knowing exactly the size you will need for packaging. And if you are using a jar or something that you already had at home, then think well of the gift sizes (step No.1).
