It’s funny, but it seems like the guys in our lives can be the hardest people to shop for. Fortunately, gift baskets for men are the perfect solution!
We’ve come a long way from the classic fruit gift basket. Due to their booming popularity, a gourmet gift basket has become more diverse and creative.
This is why it’s much easier to find manly gift baskets than ever before. Baskets chock full of goodies that appeal to the most masculine tastes run the gamut, from gifts curated for the avid outdoorsman to craft beers, meats, and cheeses.
We’ve included some gift baskets for men in some of our other gift guides (like gifts for Father’s Day, for instance), but we were curious to see just how much there is to choose from out there. So we went hunting.
Cool Manly Gift Baskets for Manly Men
1. King’s Hamper
Whether he’s the king of your castle or king of the office, this fancy-pants gift basket was originally crafted for those titled members of the gentry to bring along while traveling to their country estates.
The gift basket idea includes king’s blend coffee, lucifer biscuits (made with ginger and chilis for a bit of a bite!), ginger and whiskey marmalade, and lots more.
2. Jerky Gift Box
Four varieties of meaty goodness in various forms make this the perfect gift for the carnivore in your life. This gift box features beef sausage sticks, pepperoni sticks, beef sausage smoked strips, sweet and spicy beer mustard for dipping, and maple bacon jerky for dessert.
Mmmmm… maple bacon jerky. Yes, please!
3. Cookie BouTray
For he’s a jolly good fellow! We think this cookie arrangement would make a great retirement gift or gift of congratulations for the man who loves his cookies.
This gift has earned the moniker “boutray” because it’s a combination of specialty cookies arranged like a bouquet and more cookies arranged artfully around them. The result is a unique and delicious gift for the guy with a sweet tooth.
The stemmed cookies include a personal message of well-wishes, and you can choose between sixteen varieties of cookies to include on the tray. This cookie boutray comes in small, medium, and large sizes.
4. Beer, Meat, and Cheese Bucket
This gift bucket contains twelve assorted beers from around the world and a huge variety of bar snacks delivered to his door just in time for the big game or weekly poker night. Everything is packed neatly inside a steel bucket he can fill with ice to chill those beers.
He’ll receive smoked gouda, garlic sausage, popcorn, and many other snacks, in addition to the international beer options.
5. Bodacious BBQ Grilling Gift Set
Your grillmaster can always use more flavor options to experiment with, and this grilling gift set delivers. It features dry rubs and dry glazes crafted for pork, beef, poultry, fish, or tofu. You’ll find specialty mixes such as the brown sugar, ancho, chipotle, and allspice combination found in the Kansas City classic rub.
The set also includes the Chicago steak and chop, Athenian herb dry glaze, and more.
Every unique small-batch rub is created by Urban Accents based in Chicago, IL.
6. Chippin, Dippin, and Margarita Sippin’ Basket
While your guy is outside grilling some dinner, why not turn it into a little fiesta? This gift basket was meant for backyard vacations!
It includes all the fixin’s for guacamole: fresh limes, avocados, and guacamole mix as well as tortilla chips, two kinds of cheese for making queso dip, Baja lime margarita wine, and more.
For dessert, Mexican chocolate cha-chas will surprise his taste buds with the perfect balance of sweetness and heat.

With a range of heat from mellow to bowls of hell, he’ll have no problem finding the perfect hot sauce for every occasion. If he challenges you to a challenge involving the “deadly” PuckerButt Ignition Point, you’ll be in our thoughts and prayers.

An ideal gift for an outdoorsy kind of guy! This gift box contains useful gear for camping, hiking, or hunting in the great outdoors, plus a couple of things for the homestead when he’s off the trail.
