Man Box- DIY

Two years down, and I knew I wanted to get my boyfriend a special gift. Now, everyone knows how hard guys are to shop for, especially my boyfriend. Phil is very humble, and never asks for one thing or even drops hints of what he wants. Imagine the stress I go through for every holiday, birthday and in this case anniversary. He is also starting a new business as well so I wanted to do something for good luck/ success, so I made him a success basket. My boyfriend has similar taste as me, so here and there we still like to splurge on the finer things in life. In the past, I have bought him a Gucci backpack and Gucci sneakers, so this time I decided to get him a Gucci money clip. The money clip to me was nice but also symbolizes success…new money clip, new money. That’s how I like to think of it with my positive mind set. Not to mention he doesn’t use a wallet so he is forever losing his money and license everywhere he goes(note: the money clip was on the expensive side so feel free to get one that fits your budget).

Gucci Money clip, was around $200.00 free delivery, and free gift wrapping. (sticker still on the metal piece)

Next item on the list was cigars. For some reason, I always see guys smoking cigars as a congratulations, whether its for a baby (most common), birthday, new job, or engagement. He doesn’t smoke often at all but they are a nice treat once for him once in a while.

Hard to see in bag but 1st cigar is a coffee flavored one! The other one is a Monte Cristo New York City addition! Both cigars totaled cost me $22.00

I also put in his basket a cologne from Zara. It’s such a good smelling cologne and I feel like new business adventure, new scent right?? Well that’s how I like to think at least.

this cologne is amazing and can't beat the price just 20 bucks!! Smells just as good as YSL L'Homme.

The last thing added in his basket was a picture frame with a pic of him and our dog Toro. He loves Toro as if it were his actual baby, so I knew he would appreciate the picture for display.

The first picture of Phil and his "son" Toro. I also got this frame on super sale for just $4.00 dollars from american greetings.

And lastly of course the card, which is always for me the most important!! The box I used to put it all in happened to be Gucci but it was an old box from my perfume I bought during Christmas. I am a hoarder so I always save the fancy boxes, and bags, plus you never know when you can use them. Guys love to be spoiled sometimes too although they might not admit it. My boyfriend does so much for me all the time, these are one of the many ways I can say thank you in a special way.

This basket can be used for any guy and any occasion. Tell me what occasion you will make this for and who. Tag me in your pics I love to see new creative gifts.
