Father’s Day DIY Gift Basket

This post was sponsored by Keurig®, but as always all thoughts and opinions are genuinely my own.

With Father’s Day right around the corner I’m sure you’ve come to the conclusion that shopping for men can be difficult! If you’re like me, you’ve perused endless gift guides, scrolled through Amazon, and even stalked your Dad’s Facebook. But let’s face it – not every guy likes to grill and golf! So this year I’ve decided to put together a personalized DIY gift basket that is thoughtful and budget friendly. Keep scrolling to find out my top three tips on how to make the perfect basket!

1. Choose a Theme

To make shopping easy, choose an underlying theme for your basket.  From fishing to beer brewing, it should align with your Dad’s interests so that it feels specially created for him! This year, I decided to go with a coffee theme since I’ll also be gifting him the new Keurig® K-Elite™ Coffee Maker! (Fingers crossed that he’s not reading this!)

2. Pick a Color Scheme

When putting together gift baskets (no matter the occasion), pick a color scheme to keep everything feeling cohesive. I centered my Dad’s basket around this Happy Father’s Day mug and added a pop of green and brown with the Green Mountain Coffee Roasters® K-Cup® pods and The Original Donut Shop® K-Cup® pods!

3. Lose the Packaging

Not only can packaging disrupt your color scheme but it also makes everything look way too busy. For a curated feel, REPACKAGE! Say goodbye to the plastic vanilla syrup bottle and replace it with a glass oil dispenser instead! Get rid of the coffee bean tin and put those chocolate covered morsels into a reusable mason jar. 

4. Bonus Basket Tip

Always choose the basket first! This way, you have an idea of the size and types of items that will fit inside it. I’ve made the mistake of buying all the products initially and then struggled with finding a basket that would fit everything. Eventually I had to return some things. Save yourself an extra trip to the store by picking out the gift basket before anything else!
