5 Perfect Fathers Day Gift Basket Ideas
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Gift baskets aren't only for Mother's Day. No gift basket is too girly for the first special man in your life - all it takes is tweaking the concept of gift basket ideas to their personality and design and voila! The perfect gift.

Here are 5 of the most popular you can mix and match to suit your dad's unique taste:

1) Sports Gift Baskets

Is daddy the sporty one? Not only are there pre-packaged, commercially ready father's day gift baskets already made with him in mind, you can also make one of your own. Sports gift baskets don't usually come at all in "baskets", but in sports themed boxes or balls filled with sports-related goodies. If you plan to make one choose items which are related to his specific sport.

2) Gourmet Gift Baskets

Men enjoy good food as much as women do, so how about putting together a basket full of dad's fave delicacies? The most popular ones off the shelf are cheese and wine gift baskets, as well as a luxury chocolate selection paired with a good old bottle of liquor. Gathering items of your own need not be expensive, but make it special - something that he will surely like and doesn't get to eat every day - it's a special occasion, after all.

3) Movie Gift Baskets

If your dad is a movie buff, why not whip up a special movie night gift basket just for him? Netflix gift cards are sure to do the trick for a night out if you think it's better if he chooses, or surprise him with movie passes to a film you know he will decide upon himself.

An equally great alternative to this is an indoor movie gift basket: a few DVDs, a big bucket of popcorn, a snuggly pillow for him to sit or lean on, and his favorite to-go beverage for a perfect night in!

4) Games Night Gift Baskets

A games night Father's Day gift basket can be used as a perfect excuse to schedule quality time with your dad. Piece together a game-filled basket of a classic board game such as mini chess, a brand new pack of cards, a few bottles of beer and beer match snacks and spend a fun-filled evening playing games!

5) Favorite Hobby Gift Baskets

This idea is about assembling a basket for a more specific hobby of his. You might need to spend a few more moments thinking about non-generic things that he really loves.

For instance, if he is into fishing then you could assemble a gift basket of goods for a great fishing weekend, including a few fishing accessories, bait, a camera, and his favorite drink.

Or if he is the outdoor traveling type, how about a special selection of little-somethings from around the globe? Compiling a photo album of a specific place he likes visiting added with specialty food or souvenirs from that area could be something he would really appreciate.

Now that you see the many possibilities, gift baskets for Father's Day could actually be a really cool gift for your dad if you put one according to his exact likes. If you fill them with stuff your dad loves, I bet he wouldn't dare call them girly at all!
