Luckily for me, there is a solution. Deciding what to buy a man for his birthday, a work anniversary, or for the holidays is now as easy as a few clicks of the mouse.

The Beginning of The BroBasket

Back in 2013, a story planted the seed for TheBroBasket.

From TheBroBasket website:

My fiance (now husband) sent me a bouquet of flowers and I leapt with glee! That evening as I thanked him for the gesture I asked "Well why don't I send you some flowers at work to repay the favor?". He laughed and respectfully declined but retorted with, "I don't want flowers, but you can send me a bucket of beer instead!" After searching the internet and quickly realizing I couldn't send him a bucket of beer, I realized what a cool concept that would be!

On their website, you can learn more about the history of The BroBasket.

Personalized Craft Beer Gift Baskets

When I searched through The BroBasket's selection, I instantly knew who I wanted to celebrate by gifting The BroBasket: My father.

There are dozens of premade baskets to choose from, but I knew that in order to cater specifically to my dad's interests, I wanted a personalized gift basket. Fortunately for me, The BroBasket gives you the option to customize baskets.

Customizing his basket was so easy. The BroBasket website makes the product simple by organizing the available products into categories. Want beer? Choose that first. Want to add some spirits? Add that next. Then, move on to non-alcoholic drinks, then snacks, then accessories, and so on. Once you've filled your basket, you can then head to check out.

Choosing a Gift for Dad

My dad is a man who deserves to be celebrated. He's a difficult man to shop for because he never asks for anything. He is selfless, devoted, hard-working, and a down-to-earth man with a heart of gold. He has done so much for me throughout my twenty-eight years and there is no way that I could ever thank him enough, but The BroBasket is a great start.

The basket arrived well-packaged in box surrounded by foam to protect from damage. The basket itself was wrapped in plastic to prevent the items inside from shifting around. The person who put this basket together organized it beautifully and securely.

Here's The BroBasket I created, personalized for my dad:

  • Denver Broncos reuseable metal bucket
  • 4 Denver Broncos cups (included w/ the bucket)
  • 6 Budweiser beers
  • 2 oz Jack Links Original Beef Jerky
  • Godiva Chocolate Covered Cashews
  • The BroBasket Beer Koozies
  • Cigar

All of The BroBasket's containers are reusable. I chose the Denver Broncos pail because my is a diehard Denver Broncos. For years, I've watched him root for his team relentlessly. I watched him jump up and down screaming when they won the Super Bowl in 1998 and again in 1999. I saw him near tears when they lost the Super Bowl in 2013 with Tim Tebow. I saw him light up when Peyton Manning became their starting QB and I watched him nearly fall over from excitement when he took them to the Super Bowl in 2016, where they won their third Super Bowl championship ring.

I knew that it had to be the Broncos bucket.

All NFL buckets come with four plastic cups, as well as the bucket itself.

Inside, I decided to fill it with Budweiser, because that's my dad's beer of choice. This is one thing that my dad and I do not agree on—but to each their own, I say!

Growing up, his favorite nuts were cashews. Naturally, when I saw the Godiva Chocolate Covered Cashews, I knew they were going into The BroBasket.

When my dad is enjoying an ice cold beer, he's never with a beer koozie, so I figured I'd add The BroBasket beer koozie so he could alternate his collection.

To me, no gift basket is complete without beef jerky.

To top it off, I decided to add a cigar, so my dad can enjoy his beer the classy way. ;)

I did unwrap the basket, just so that I could lay everything out in the open so that it's easier to see all of the goodies inside. I intend to rewrap with cellophane before handing it over to my dad. The way the basket is organized makes it very easy to do so.

I am very pleased with this gift basket and I anticipate the moment that I hand it over to my dad to be enjoyed in all of it's glory.

Head on over the The BroBasket for all of your craft beer, wine, and spirit gift basket needs!
