I found a simple, plastic, flower pot at the dollar store and put in craft/floral foam inside. I purchased 5 mini bottles of liquor (some of his faves) and some of his favorite candy bars and hot glued them to wooden skewers. The skewers poke right into the foam so they stand up perfectly. Then I picked up a few gift card, taped those to skewers as well and then finished it off with some gift bag filler to cover the foam. Voila!
It seemed like my husband enjoyed his gift...so much so that he thought it was professionally done (like I had just went out and bought it like that)! That's a great compliment.
So next time you don't know what to give someone (especially those hard to shop for men) think outside the box and see what you can throw together.
Love and creative gifts,
