A fun basket filled with gifts for Dad

Can't decide what to get Dad for Father's Day this Sunday? Instead of one gift, surprise him with a basket of man-inspired goodies, also known as a broquet!

Gift basket for Father's Day

We've filled our bro-tastic tin with things we know every man loves, like beer, grilling utensils, a manly cookbook and homemade sauces and marinades. But the basket is totally customizable, so customize it with what your favorite man, dad or bro loves!

Supplies

For the basket:

  • Medium size basket
  • Floral foam
  • Burlap
  • Grilling accessories and cutting board
  • Baseballs (or other sports toys)
  • Pint glass
  • Small beer tin
  • Beer
  • Dad's favorite candies
  • Small wooden block
  • "Dad" stickers
  • Bakers twine
  • Drill

For the sauce: 

  • Sterilized Mason jars
  • Plain sticker labels
  • Sharpie
  • Homemade sauce recipe (we love these boozy ones!)

Arrange the items in the basket. We put the cutting board in the back and started layering the larger items around it, like the beer tin and beers, and the pint glass and barbecue sauce.
