Bucket of Beer – Valentine’s Day Man Flowers

Bucket of Beer for Valentine’s Day

Men can be so hard to buy for, and 50 year old men are simply impossible to buy for, much less surprise with something they want.  Frankly, if he wanted it, he’d have it already.   A special card would be thanks, hon, but you didn’t have to.  Thankfully he loves my baking, but this year I came out with a way to surprise him.

The easiest way to find something for him is to think of something new.  This year thanks to the Craft Beering Blog I discovered craft beers and he loves it.  I started with some craft beer with fun masculine names like Rig Pig and Hammer Head.

The Valentine Printable

Neither of the beer bucket choices is pink or heart shaped   (he won’t care) so I wanted some sort of Valentine card.

Here is the printable’s link if you would like to print one.    To add it to the bucket I rolled it into a scroll and tied it with a simple burlap tie.

The Smaller Bucket

Hubs got this little six-pack carrier for Christmas, but it would also be perfect for Valentine’s day.  It has a masculine bow and of course the scroll and a six pack of craft beer from a local brewery.

The Larger Bucket

I actually bought him two 12 packs of craft beer for his Valentine’s gift and some Guinness beer cheese and other snacks.

To make the second basket I took this picnic basket that I refinished with a horse.

To wrap the beer simplely place a single beer in the center of a sheet of tissue paper and pull it up,  Place in the bucket and repeat.

Once the bucket is full, I fluffed the tops of the paper to resemble flowers with the beer caps as centers.

Which one would the men in your life prefer, the more masculine wood six-pack, or the much larger man flowers basket?    Let me know if this idea is relevant to your Valentines gifting.

    1. Thank you Debra. Like I said he is so impossible to buy anything for. The only thing he really goes wild about is racehorses and I am not buying him one of those on my budget lol.

  1. Leanna – this is pretty darn close to genius! My DH loves his Corona, so a 6-pack is a standard part of his gifts for Anniversary, Valentine’s Day and birthday! But all dressed up like this makes it so much more fun!! I am partial to the picnic bucket (love the horse!) with the additional little treats tucked! I am inspired!!

    1. Stick in the printable please, and let me know if it makes him laugh. I am sure my hubs will groan, but it will be fun to see his reaction lol.

    1. Thank you very much Michelle. I hope your brother in laws like it. I know that men get spoiled year around, but Valentines isn’t just for women.

  2. OMG! You are so creative. I always struggle with Valentine’s Day gifting and you’ve just invented the perfect one for men. What man doesn’t like beer, seriously:)? I love the name you came up with – #manflowers is perfect! Pinned! And thumbs up! Some pretty cool brews, too. Your boy will be happy, I can tell!

    1. Hi Milena: He really enjoys craft beer now thanks to YOU, and I hope he gets a smile with the manly man beer labels lol. Glad you like the man flower idea.

    1. Most years its super low key here. I bake something. But I do that for him regularly so I think this is a nice change.

    1. Exactly Linda, that is what I was thinking. The craft beer industry is really growing in Alberta so I splurged and bought him some.
