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.
