A Creative Valentines Day Gift for Boyfriend or Husband

Valentines Day Gift for Guys a Bouquet of Beer

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 will love.  This Valentines day gift for guys is creative enough to actually surprise him.   Thankfully my Hubs loves my baking, which is my usual gift, but this year I came out with a unique way to actually surprise him.

The easiest way to find something for Hubs is to think of something new and creative.  This year thanks to the Craft Beering Blog I discovered craft beers and he loves them.  I started with some craft beer with fun masculine names like Rig Pig and Hammer Head.  Nothing too romantic of foo-foo,  as that makes him uncomfortable.  Does your man like romantic gestures, or do you need to be extra thoughtful when surprising him?

The Valentine Printable

As neither the beer or beer bucket is Valentine’s day themed I wanted to add some sort of Valentine’s day card.

Here is the free 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.  I added a masculine bow in burlap 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 go along with it.

To make the second basket I took this outdoor ice bucket that I refinished with a horse motif.

To wrap the beer simply 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.  Of course, I chose blue his favorite colour and the banner is included to make the picture prettier.

Which Valentines idea do you think the men in your life prefer, the more masculine wood six-pack, or the much larger man flowers basket?

  1. Love your man flowers! I always struggle with Valentine’s Day gifts for my hubby because I can’t afford a sports car. This will work nicely. Thanks!

      That’s wonderful to hear Colleen. I hope he laughs at the printable card.

  2. Men are so hard to buy for so this is perfect! What man doesn’t like beer, I’ve yet to meet one.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

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

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      I figured that most men like beer, so it’s a simple gift to spoil hubs with.

  3. What a cute idea. You are so right about buying for someone over 50 if we want we get it and makes gift giving so hard.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Exactly and we only need so much stuff.

  4. What a clever idea! Men are so difficult to buy for for valentines, my hubby usually ends up with chocolates which I help him eat!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      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.

  5. 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. LeannaForsythe says:

      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.

  6. Leanna, this is seriously amazing! I sent your post to both my Sisters for them to give their husbands as they love craft beer & the printable is so cool!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      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.

  7. My hubby would love these beery man flowers Leanna. It’s right up his alley since he’s a real craft beer connoisseur. Has your hubby tried brewing his own yet?

  8. 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. LeannaForsythe says:

      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. LeannaForsythe says:

      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.
