Man Bouquet for Valentine's Day

Here is an idea for men on Valentines Day...
(I actually used this idea when my brother was in the hospital)

I took a 6pk cardboard beer bottle holder (I think I had used bud light removed the beer because they wouldn't allow it in the hospital)
I then added packaged jerky to it
His favorite candy (ie: bottle pops etc)
Individual servings of Lipton tea bags..
His favorite comic book(s) and/or magazine
He loved it..I also added a couple of get well balloons to it as well..
I think this would be a great idea for the man in your life since most men I know don't care much about chocolates or flowers really.
Here are a few other ideas you could use as well...
Fishing lures
Flashlight
Sunflower Seeds etc...
Easy to make and inexpensive.

I do something very similar for my DH for Valentine's Day almost every year.

I take a plain metal bucket and fill it 1/2 to 3/4 of the way with newspaper. Then, on top of that, I arrange his favorite snacks (small packages of cashews, small bags of his favorite chips, a jar of salsa, some beef jerky, etc.), a couple of bottles of his favorite drinks (Starbucks Frappaccino and some Mt. Dew), a few instant lottery tickets, maybe a CD or DVD or some other small gift that I think he'd like.

Once it's all arranged, I pull a cellophane bag (or wrap if I don't have a bag) up over the top of the bucket, pull it together and tie a nice bow to finish it off.

My Dh LOVES it! I'd sent him flowers before, candy before, the usual, typical stuff...and gotten very little response from him. The one time I sent him flowers a female co-worker of his had to call and tell me that they'd arrived and that they were beautiful...he didn't even bother to bring them home with him.

Then, the first year I sent him the bucket of goodies...he flipped. He called me so excited that he couldn't hardly stand himself and all his male co-workers were jealous that they're girlfriends and wives hadn't sent them a "goodie bucket".

The next year, he dropped all kinds of hints as V-Day approached...and he still does several years later.

How about calling it ...

Macho Man Bouquet
Daddy-O Bouquet
Dude There's No Flowers In This Bouquet


Okay, let's wonder off the bouquet theme - how about ...

Chill Ya Buddy
Hipster Thingamajigs

And my personal favourite
Supermurgitroidbasket




I gave a man flowers once. I asked my mom if it was okay to give a man flowers and she said, "yes, if he likes flowers". So I knocked on the door of the nice old man who used to walk his dog when I walked mine and he taught me all kinds of things about nature at the polywog pond. I wanted to thank him. His wife answered the door.
I said, "these flowers are for your husband. He's a very nice man and he answers alllll of my questions about bugs and stuff." She accepted the flowers on his behalf. He wasn't at home.
I left and wondered why she had such a strange expression on his face. When I got home, my mother asked me where I had been and I told her.
She said, " I had a call from Scotty (the dog's) owner and she wasn't mad, but she wanted me to have a little talk with you about the flowers." I shook my head and said, "I hope she isn't jealous. I don't have a crush on him, I just wanted to say thanks." My mom said, "no, dear, she's not jealous. She wanted me to tell you not to pick flowers from other people's gardens to give to them."

Yep, that's what I did.

My mom added, "and it would have been a nicer gift if you had removed the soil, roots and insects before presenting your bouquet."

Glad she called. It didn't occur to me that picking out the flowers from her beautiful garden was wrong, not to mention my lack of pruning knowledge.
