Gamer Gift Basket

Give Your Spouse the Gift of Play!

Is your honey one of those super-hard-to-shop-for men? You know… the ones who don’t want much, or who only want expensive gadgets that are way out of your price range? So many of our spouses love to play video games in their spare time and with that in mind, we’ve come up with the perfect gift idea; one that gamers on any level will be sure to appreciate, and won’t cost you an arm and a leg. I love to give my husband unique, creative, and thoughtful gifts, but he doesn’t always appreciate them as much as simple, practical gifts – but this box of goodies is the perfect balance because it’s really the best of both worlds – creative and practical!

Joanna from JAB Creative really helped us take this idea to the next level! She is seriously a dream to work with and can create anything you have in mind, so take a quick second and hop on over to let her know you think so, too! I’m so impressed that she helped us create printables for this gift basket that are adorable – but not too cute for your guy to like!

 Gamer Gift Basket for Hubby

Seriously, how much would your sweetie LOVE to receive all these goodies?! The best part is the this Gamer Gift could not be any easier to put together! Just attach the “Baby, You’ve Got Game” sign to the front and start adding little gaming essentials. I just piled everything into a wooden crate so it would be a little more “manly” for my man.

Gamer Love Notes

We even included a few bonus gifts that you can add to your basket (or crate!) that you don’t even have to shop for. Just print out these gamer-themed request cards and love notes on some card stock, add them in, and then your honey can use them while he’s gaming to request a kiss, or your company!

Gamer Snacks

Pick your hubby’s favorite snacks {these are totally a favorite for us!} and attach one of the clever tags inspired by video game lingo!

Gamer Gift Basket Snacks and Tags

Finish up your Gamer Gift by adding a new game, extra batteries for his controller, and a gift card into the crate so he can snag a few add-ons!

Creating this gift basket would be the perfect gift for almost any occasion – everything from your anniversary, to his birthday, or even Christmas! Plus, if you want an easy way to make your man smile for Father’s Day, just leave out the love notes and use the “Dad, You’ve Got Game” sign for the front. Let your kiddos pick out a few snacks for their dad and you are all set!

Getting the perfect gift for the man in your life just got a WHOLE lot easier!

I find a way to be highly creative and highly organized all at the same time. I love discovering a new favorite book, sitting on my back porch in the mornings, mountain views, and random science facts! I married my high school sweetheart after dating for nearly a decade and I love meeting people who know how to make me laugh, like my husband who can crack me up by just looking at me.

  1. This was a perfect gift for my boyfriend this Christmas as he is an awkward one to buy for. I sort of made the box in to a classic playstation, though my handy work on the box needs a little work; I’m really grateful for this inspiration from you guys and the printables.

  2. You guys saved my Christmas, haha! I had no idea what to give for my hubby, because he’s just like the type described at the beginning of the post. But he loves games, like A LOT. I didn´t want to buy just one video-game or gift-card, but putting lots of stuff in a crate like this seems awesome! And the cards are just perfect! I’m sure he’ll love it!

    1. Awww Juliana! You totally made my day – I’m so glad you think it’s as great as we do! I think there are lots of husbands that fit that bill 😉 I hope your hubby just loves his gifts!! We’d love to hear how it goes.

  3. Hi Megan, so great ideas! I will do it for my boyfriend, but I didn’t understand what kind of gift I should to put in other cards, like: “I love your bits”, “I’ll do it after this level”, etc. Only understood what I saw on the basket’s photo, could you help me, telling me for e-mail? Thank you!

    1. Hey Sarah! Those cards are like a bit of a bonus, just for extra love notes to sneak into the basket or even to hide around the house as little reminders of your love. I didn’t originally intend for them to go with gifts but you might be able to come up with a few clever ideas! Some of the extra cards are for fun ‘coupons’ that your spouse can use… like “I’ll do it after this level” is a great excuse for him to keep playing instead of helping out with chores! Hope that helps!
