A Peek Inside the Man Basket!


Ok, I didn’t think I’d top last year’s “man basket”, but this one has to be my favorite yet!  Unfortunately with all of my hype about getting creative with the basket, when I went out looking on Thursday, I couldn’t really find anything that I was looking for, so I ended up pulling out the wine basket gift we got at our engagement party and reusing it as the Easter basket this year!  Take a look at some of the things I  put inside!


Most men love beer.  Mine is particularly a fan of IPA’s and trying new types and breweries.  Flying Dog is a Maryland Brewery, actually from my hometown of Frederick and we like a lot of their beers, so I figured I’d give this one a try.  The bottle is cool (which is obviously important) and I haven’t remembered seeing it before, so I figured my fiance would like it.  It is over 8% alcohol, however, so it may be lethal.


These glasses!  Ok, one of them is for me, but I thought they were the cutest things ever and that we could drink from them on our wedding night since we’ll be watching the O’s game.  I got them on etsy from Krafty Mama Boutique and could not be happier with them.  They are great quality and I was shocked by how quickly the girl painted them and shipped them to me.  She also was a great communicator and even emailed me to double check that we got the right glasses that I’d had in mind.  I highly recommend anyone looking for personalized glasses to use this vendor.  


Of course with O’s glasses, I had to get an O’s tee.  This one was at Old Navy and is super soft.


Found this funny towel at the Ellicott City Spring Fair we went to on Saturday.  It is from a store called Vintage Bliss Boutique (cutest store ever btw).  He’s been using one of my fuzzy bath towels that he stole for the bar to wipe up spills, so I thought this would be more suiting.


Threw in some protein bars because we’re trying to get in shape for the wedding festivities, and a few candy eggs, because it is an Easter basket after all.  


He totally loved it and I loved making it!  What do you put in your man’s basket??
