With the holiday shopping season around the corner, I have to admit - I'm getting stressed out! Time seems to move extra fast at this time of year. Don't get me wrong, I love this time of year – with its sense of nostalgia, warm moments with family and friends, and the cheery sounds that sweep through the neighborhood air. Yet finding a thoughtful gift is something that tends to linger.

Finding a unique gift idea is always a challenge for me during the holidays and for birthdays. This is especially true when shopping for gifts for the guys in my life. Most tend to have everything that they need and often don't get excited about many things which makes it tough. Do you feel the same? So when The BroBasket asked me to check out one of their special gifts, I was thrilled to check out what they could offer that would help solve my gifting needs.

When the BroBasket package arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to see the gift message that was printed on the outside. It acted as a nice teaser that made me want to see what was inside.

Upon opening the box, the contents were well-protected with packing materials. The basket came wrapped together in clear plastic that made it not only easy to pull out, but also looked nice when placed on the table. The presentation of the gift was festive and neat, which made me happy to dive in and discover what was all included. This BroBasket included:

  • 2 – Popcornopolis Gourmet Flavored Popcorn
  • 2 – Bags of Snyder’s Pretzels
  • 1 – BroBasket Rocks Glass
  • 1 – BroBasket Reusable Tin
  • 1 – Can of Coke (12oz)
  • 1 – Bottle of Johnnie Walker Red label (50ml)

BroBasket Gift Basket for Guys Contents


I'm not an avid whisky drinker but do enjoy trying new beverages. What struck a chord was the fact that the gift basket not only contained a variety of sampler bottles but also snacks and a glass to help complete the experience. Furthermore, I wasn't sure why a can of Coke was included but was later informed via The BroBasket website that it was there to act as a mixer or chaser particularly for newbies like me. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this BroBasket gift set. 


The BroBasket Gift Set for Men


After opening my basket, I visited TheBroBasket.com, to see what other gift baskets were available. What's great is that they have quite a wide range of gift baskets to account for all sorts of tastes. They have pre-made options from alcoholic* to non-alcoholic beverages to customizable baskets that you can create. It's apparent that they've taken a lot of time to address different types of guys as well as various gifting needs from birthdays to corporate gifts.

So I'm relieved to now have The BroBasket as a unique gift idea for my upcoming holiday gift shopping. Paired with our classic Bar Code tee, one of these gift baskets could make for the next perfect gift. This will definitely melt away some of my stress this season and hopefully some of yours as well!
