Hubby’s Birthday Gift

This past week was my husband Brandon’s 29th birthday.  We had a party at out home (theme – Make 29 Great Again) filled with yummy appetizers, a keg of beer (hubby’s request), outdoor games, & good friends/family.  The party itself wasn’t my focus of worry as much as what on earth to get him.


After a lot of Pinteresting (see my boards here) & a little bit of creativity, I came up with the “man version” of a gift basket, complete with little items that remind me of him.  I started out with 10 items, but ended up with 14…fitting in perfect with his birth date of April 14th.  Lastly, I wrapped each item in various paper, made tags showing which each gift represented, staggered all of them in a metal drink pale that we already had in the garage, & topped it off with a rustic banner made from cut out card stock & rope!

It turned out really adorable (I mean…manly), costed a total of under $150, & truly gave B that sentimental punch he needed on his birthday.
