Women like bouquets of roses or lilies, but a man…. well, he might like a bouquet of a different sort! Create a unique “Man Bouquet” this Valentine’s Day, filled with treats, and gifts customized especially for your spouse!
• Medium round basket or large opaque vase
• Small dowel rods or kabob sticks
• Colored shredded paper (the kind you put in a gift bag)
• Various small candy bars and treats, gift card, etc.
• Clear tape or heavy duty glue dots
Even though this gift is called a “Man Bouquet,” it can also be easily tweaked for a wife, too. Add all sorts of small gifts and treats that will be sure to put a smile on your husband or wife’s face like their favorite candy bar, or a gift card to their favorite restaurant. First, take a medium sized round basket or large opaque vase (you don’t want to be able to see through it), and place a large piece of styrofoam inside.
Next, take your small gifts and treats, and tape each one to its own dowel rod or kabob stick. I used kabob sticks and they work really well since they are thin and have a sharp point on the end. Some candy bars are heavier than others, so you may have to wrap the tape completely around the candy bar to get it to stay on the stick.
Last, arrange the items in the basket, sliding the dowel rods or kabob sticks into the Styrofoam. Cover the Styrofoam with the colored shredded paper, and you’ve got a Man Bouquet! Add a sweet note for the occasion if you’d like. Give your man his own “Man Bouquet” this Valentine’s Day, next time he needs a cheering up, or just because!
