Whatever your dad is enthusiastic about, there is always a gift for him. Take a look below.

A Beer Gift Basket Idea

I am sure he would like a beer gift basket for when he is watching his favorite sport. This gift basket could be a bucket filled 3/4 of the way up with shredded newspaper from the sports section or with ice, if you're giving it to him within the next few hours.

Fill the bucket with a small selection of bottles of beer, a beer mug with some words engraved on it, such as "To the best dad in the world". Savory snacks, nuts, popcorn or chips and in between all of these goodies, two tickets to a game.

Wrap the beer bucket in cellophane and tie with a bow.

A Barbecue Gift Basket Idea

Is your dad a master chief when he stands in front of his Barbecue and starts cooking?  This gift basket could be a small to medium sized cool box filled with some of these ideas: Barbecue sauces, herbs, spices, salsa, grilling skewers, marinades for rubs,  a recipe book, a funny apron or one or two utensils and some beer to put into the cool box to keep dad cool while he cooks the burgers and hot dogs on a Saturday night.

A Toiletry Gift Basket Idea

Men enjoy pampering themselves, but they will always deny it. The basket to use could be a dark brown or a neutral colored basket. Fill the basket with scrunched up paper and cover with tissue paper.

The gifts could be some shampoos, conditioners, shower gels, shaving kit, after shave, body lotions, etc. This basket could be used for his toiletry items afterwards.

Wrap the basket with clear cellophane or shrink wrap it and tie a masculine colored bow.

A Car Wash Gift Basket Idea

Does your dad worship his car??? Does he spend too much time cleaning and polishing his pride and joy? The perfect gift for him would have to be a car wash gift basket. 

The ideal container for this would be a plastic bucket. Fill the bucket 3/4 full of scrunched up newspaper or Styrofoam chips and cover with shredded paper. 

Place your gifts on the top, these could be: car polish, car wax, glass cleaner, and cloths for polishing the car, air fresheners for inside, an emergency travel kit and tickets to a car show.

After all, they are all boys with new toys! Unique fathers day gifts.

A Fishing Gift Basket Idea

This basket can be a small picnic basket.  These baskets are ideal because they have a lid, great for all their fish and tackle things. Fill the basket with a filler and place your gifts on top, these gifts could be:

A disposable camera, a picture frame (for the fish that always get away),  fish bait, fishing magazine, a cap to keep the sun off his head (because he's thin on top!), a thermos flask, a fishing mug, and a fishing cutlery set. Depending on what kind of fishing he does: ice fishing, fly fishing, fresh water fishing or salt water fishing. 

Also include some snacks like granola bars, chocolate, cookies, crackers and cheese, pate spreads, pickles, whatever he likes to snack on. No need to wrap with basket in cellophane, just tie a big ribbon around the basket.

Whatever his interests are, there's a unique fathers day gift for every dad. Don't forget your Father's Day card or gift tag to go with your personalized Father's Day baskets.

A Father's Day Flower

Father's Day baskets with gifts inside made for dad are not the only gift baskets you can give, they can also be filled with flowers. This might not be the fathers day gift you might think of giving to the best dad in the world. Men will not tell you they like to receive flowers too, but they do, as long as the floral gift basket does not look feminine. 

Strong bold shapes and colors are ideal flowers for men. These flowers are not only for fathers day, they can be made into a floral basket for any special occasion.

Here are some examples of flowers to choose for your Father's Day baskets.

Sunflowers bring a ray of sun shine to any arrangement. Add three or five sunflowers depending on the size of the flowers and add some Gypsophila for a simple but dazzling arrangement.
