Gift basket idea for him. #StarbucksCaffeLatte, #MyStarbucksatHome adI love to give my friends and family members gift baskets. I find it is an opportunity to show the ones I love how I feel about them and that I really know them. Sometimes, however, putting together a unique gift basket can be difficult, especially if the basket is for a man. That is why I am sharing this office-friendly gift basket for men along with some unique gift basket container ideas. Plus, I am excited to tell you about the newest Starbucks® product that you can make at home.

Gift basket idea for him. #StarbucksCaffeLatte, #MyStarbucksatHome adMaking a fun, unique, and personalized gift basket starts with choosing the right container for all the gifts. The container should go along with the theme of the basket. For example, for an office themed basket, consider a letter tray or metal basket like the one I used in the picture above. A gift basket for a handy-man could be placed in a work bucket or toolbox. You could even fill a new pair of boots with fun gifts as well.

This office-friendly gift basket for him was built using a metal basket purchased in the office supply section of a big box storeand filled it with shredded newspaper. Depending on the man you are making the basket for, you could shred the business section, editorials, funnies, or the sports pages. If your container is deep, be sure to place something sturdy in the bottom of the basket since the newspaper will collapse quite a bit when you add your items. I placed half of an egg carton in the bottom of this basket.

My husband’s workplace has a Keurig® brewer and coffee is a morning must-have in the office. The centerpiece of the basket is the Starbucks® Caffe Latte K-Cup® pods but I also added a few office products and fun items. This basket contains some high quality pens, a golden spoon, biscotti, fun post-it notes, a colorful mug, and three varieties of Starbucks® Caffe Latte K-Cup® pods (Caramel, Mocha, and Vanilla).Gift basket idea for him. #StarbucksCaffeLatte, #MyStarbucksatHome adIn case you haven’t heard, you can now make Starbucks® Caffe Latte right at home (or at the office) using your Keurig® brewer. My husband’s co-workers were jealous when they saw him use the simple two-step process to easily brew a creamy masterpiece. Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® Pods are made from milk, have no artificial flavors, and come in three Starbucks® signature flavors (Caramel, Mocha, and Vanilla) and two fun Starbucks® seasonal flavors (Pumpkin Spice and Peppermint Mocha, available for a limited time).

Gift basket idea for him. #StarbucksCaffeLatte, #MyStarbucksatHome adThe Starbucks® Caffe Latte K-Cup® pods come with flavor packets. To brew up your own Starbucks® Caffe Latte, pour a flavor packet into your mug and place it on the drip tray of your Keurig® brewer. Then, using the eight ounce setting, brew the K-Cup® pod into your mug and stir. It is so easy and the result is so delicious! You can buy Starbucks® Caffe Latte K-Cup® pods at your local grocery store.Gift basket idea for him. #StarbucksCaffeLatte, #MyStarbucksatHome adWith fall weather setting in, I thought a gift basket featuring great coffee would be just perfect and I was right. Our supply of these K-Cup® pods is dwindling and I need to buy some more for home and for the office. Coffee lovers, which flavor will you try first?Gift basket idea for him. #StarbucksCaffeLatte, #MyStarbucksatHome adNo matter what your gift basket theme, remember to keep it personal, make it creative, and if you include Starbucks® Caffe Latte K-Cup® pods, be sure to buy some extras just for you.

  1. Oh my goodness, that is an awesome gift basket for men! I have a brother-in-law who would love to take that to the office! -client

  2. I’m a guy, so I have an inside scoop on this kind of thing.

    The basket? H*ll, yeah. That is perfect for so many things, just by itself. And filling it with food or drinks? So yes. There really is something to the old adage “The shortest route to a man’s heart is his stomach.”

  3. What a thoughtful gift basket!! I love how you used the newspaper for the filler. Very eco friendly.

  4. When you are talking Starbuck’s, you are speaking my language. I love their spiced lattes and pumpkin flavored coffees this time of the year. You are making me want to head to Starbuck’s right now.

  5. I never know what to get my boyfriend. This is a great idea. He loves coffee!

  6. Elizabeth Lampman says

    I love to make gift baskets for friends. This is a great idea for a guy. I will have to use the shredded newspaper trick for my next one.

  7. This is a great idea for my Brother In Law. He is a coffee fanatic. With Christmas coming up I have been looking for a gift for him.

  8. Lisa Bristol says

    Gift baskets are always a fun gift to give. I love to go out and pick all the things for them. I will have to save this page for my Christmas baskets.

  9. That’s a wonderful gift basket. I usually make gift baskets for gifts. They’re a lot cheaper and very fun to make.

  10. I am always stumped when it comes to gifting the men in my life and this post has changed everything I ever thought about gift baskets–namely I now believe they totally work for guys! And this one would be perfect for my husband! Thanks for sharing

  11. This is such a great gift basket for guys! It’s hard to find great gifts for guys and this one is perfect! My husband would love the coffee!

  12. What a great idea. I am always stumped by how to create a gift “basket” for a guy that does not look feminine. Coffee will work for my hubby too.

  13. What a creative gift basket idea! I’m sure any man (or woman) would love to get this coffee! 🙂

  14. This is such a great idea. A simple gift made so much better with presentation.

  15. This is an awesome gift basket. Going with a theme for the basket is brilliant. I love coffee.

  16. Putting a gift basket together for man can be difficult. Using something that is relevant to him as a basket is perfect.
