“All About You” Basket


The PERFECT “All About You” Basket

…and we have ALL the printables for you! In fact – we have TWO versions you can try out!!


I know there’s a list a MILE LONG of all the amazing things you love about your husband! He’s got so many wonderful little traits that maybe only YOU know and appreciate! The way he patiently plays Ping Pong with you, even though he could totally whoop you, the way he takes care of himself and works-out to stay healthy, or even just the fact that he lights up your life and knocks your socks off!

Well, I wanted to make sure I showed my husband that besides the big things like loving his family and going to work every day to provide for us, I also really appreciate the small things! That’s why I teamed up with the UBER-talented Courtney of All Things Bright and Beautiful, and we created this fabulous “All About You Basket!”


Don’t you just LOVE the clean, modern design of the printables?! So perfect for a manly-gift, right?!


And let me tell you, it was SO fun running around the store picking out fun gifts that represented all the little things I love about my man! My heart was so full after!


I know peanut butter and chocolate is his FAVorite combination {who wouldn’t agree with that?!}, so I grabbed this:


And I wanted him to know how much I appreciate his patience in listening to me when I freak out about the littlest things, I mean… {I don’t do that… ;-)} So I got him this level:


And I also wanted him to know that he just plain knocks my socks off, from the moment I met him, so I got him a cute pack of socks:


And when I had everything picked out that I wanted to give him, I put it inside a SUPER manly {but still cute! haha} tool pouch! 
It really IS the little things that mean the most, and when my hubby saw all the small things that I notice and love about him {and that I took the time to SHOW him} his heart melted. It was the perfect gift! And with Father’s Day coming up, it would be an AWESOME time to give it a try! You can even find most of this stuff at your nearest dollar store, too! And the best part off all of this, the AWESOME designs from the amazing Courtney are FREE!
BUT HOLD ON….. if you want to COMPLETELY do a basket from scratch, check out the basket below… 

Diva Lisa created a list of 101 reasons why she loved her husband. She didn’t do this all in one sitting, but took time to really come up with some meaningful reasons.

She then headed to the store with a list of her reasons, and purchased some fun items that coordinated with the reasons on her list, just like I did above. She popped the list into her basket along with her fun items and attached tags to each of the items. Imagine his surprise when not only did he get a basket of goodies but he ALSO received a list of reasons why he was loved!! This could be the perfect gift for Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day, an Anniversary, OR a Birthday!

    I needed this post today! My man had a hard day at work and next week is going to be pretty rough. They have 3 people on vacation (they are never supposed to have more than 2 on vacation), so it’s going to be a terrible week. He’s going to need this to keep himself going! This has my wheels turning!

  3. Elyssa says:

    Our 4 year anniversary is coming up this month, and my husband just recently lost his job. I’ve been looking for some way to give him a meaningful but unexpensive gift and I do believe this is it!!! Thank you SO MUCH for this idea!!!

  4. Kari Kari says:

    I took things from my 101 Reasons why I love you:
    You have the best smile, so I bought toothpaste.
    You have the best sense of humor, so I bought Get Smart.
    I love to play games with you, so I bought love dice.

    Anything can be put into something at the store or the dollar store.

    Do you have any ideas for a boss maybe?

    If so would love to know how to fix one.

  21. Frances says:

    I found this website viz pinterest and when I found this idea I was ecstatic! My boyfriend has been away in Afghanistan for 7 months and will be returning very soon. While he was gone I was making a “reasons why I love you” list and after seeing this I’ll be able to make a nice welcome home basket in combination to the list. I had been pondering what to do with the list for months! Can’t wait to see his reaction to it!

  22. Amanda Villalobos says:

    Love this! I think I might do it them for my kids as well!

  23. Christa says:

    Love this idea. I found this through Pinterest and used it to create a gift basket for my mom’s birthday! Thanks for the inspiration. I will be blogging about it Friday Sept 14th if you’d like to check it out.

  24. Summer says:

    Thanks so much for this great idea!!! I am having my 5th baby any day now and my husband and I are celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary next Monday. I have been wanting to do something for my hubby for our anniversary, but couldn’t think of what to do so far in advance. This is great! I can get it ready now and give it to him on our anniversary….even if I’m in the hospital! Thanks so much for the idea!

  25. Kara says:

    I did this just last week for my husband on our date night. I did not write a huge list like that, I went to the store looking for things that he likes, like simple stuff that makes him smile, and came up with little reasons i love him to reference the item i got. Like I got a stained glass lightbulb, and told him how he has shown me the colors of the world with his love, some star wars stuff because i love my nerd, and we are a young couple (both in our early 20s) so I got him a Pikachu toy, and told him how no matter what i choose him. (though it said i choose you on the gift) He loved the reasons why i love him more than what i got him lol it was a great start to a awesome date night. Thank you guys!!!!
