Now that you have the container sorted, it’s time to pick a theme for your gift basket. Consider your boyfriend’s hobbies and interests. Does he love sports, music, or books? Maybe he has a passion for grilling or fishing. Whatever his interests may be, choose a theme that will excite and surprise him.

Personalize the Gift Basket
Take the customization of your gift basket to the next level by including a personalized gift. Engrave his name on a tumbler or coffee mug, or create a custom bobble head doll that looks like him. You can also add a monogrammed wallet or a set of whiskey stones with his initials engraved on them. The possibilities are endless!
Gift Baskets for Boyfriends
Is your man a superhero fan or a hopeless romantic? Tailor your gift basket to his specific personality. Fill it with comic books, romantic notes, or even a bottle of champagne. Show him how much you love him with a curated collection of items that speak to his interests and passions.
Show Your Love with an “I Love You” Gift Basket
If you want to create a truly swoon-worthy gift basket, think romantic and passionate. Include a bottle of champagne or wine, a massage oil/lotion, and handwritten coupons for special services. Don’t forget to add aphrodisiacs like dark chocolate or strawberries to set the mood. Personalize it by including items that remind him of your relationship, such as a DVD of the first movie you watched together.
Tactical Gift Baskets
For the manly man in your life, consider creating a tactical gift basket. Think about his hobbies like hunting, fishing, or outdoor adventures. Use a toolbox or a fishing tackle box as the container for your gift basket and fill it with rugged gear and gadgets. Include night vision goggles, LED flashlights, and wool socks. Don’t forget to add books on espionage or the autobiography of his favorite soldier or war hero.
Engage His Senses
Create a gift basket that engages all five senses. Include a puzzle box for touch, a romantic note scented with your perfume for smell, his favorite coffee or chocolate for taste, romantic photos or a coffee table book for sight, and a new pair of earbuds or concert tickets for hearing. This themed gift basket allows you to create a truly immersive and personal experience.
Beef Jerky Gift Baskets
If your man loves beef jerky, why not surprise him with a beef jerky gift basket? Fill it to the brim with different varieties of jerky, including some exotic flavors like alligator or bison. Mix in some fruits, cheese, or beer that pairs well with jerky. You can also include some camping or hunting-themed trinkets to complete the experience.
Homemade Gift Baskets
Nothing says “I love you” like something homemade. Get creative and make a gift basket filled with delicious homemade cookies in various shapes and sizes. Another idea is to create a photo gift basket by printing out your favorite memories together and placing them in cute frames. You can also put together a dinner basket with all the ingredients for a romantic homemade meal.
Men’s Spa Gift Baskets
Pamper your man with a spa gift basket. Fill it with organic soap, a plush robe, hair products, and lotions with manly scents. You can also include grooming essentials like a new razor and aftershave. Don’t forget to add a gift certificate for a massage or a salon visit to truly spoil him.
Alcohol Gift Baskets
If your boyfriend enjoys a good drink, consider creating an alcohol gift basket. Use an ice bucket or a traditional basket/box as the container and fill it with his favorite beverage. Add accessories like whiskey stones, specialty glassware, or a cocktail shaker set. You can also include snacks like pretzels or chocolates to complement the drinks.
