Build Your Beer Basket
- Line the basket with 2 or 3 sheets of red gift tissue paper, leaving 6 to 12 inches over hanging the basket, all the way around
- Cover the bottom of the basket with a layer of the red "grass" or straw to cusion the contents you will be adding
- Write a "sweet something" message on a gift card for each item you will be adding. Attach a piece of ribbon, (long enough to be able to tie around the necks of the beer bottles), to each gift card. You can do this with tape, staples, or through a hole-punch in the cards
- Attach a card to each item
- Arrange your micro-brew selections in the basket, as the backdrop, as shown in the first photo above
- Add the beer mug(s) in the center, in front of the beer. Put a little red grass between them and the beer for a cushion.
- If you are including a boxed or wrapped "optional item", place it in front of the beer mugs, if one item, on each side of the mugs if two items, and in front and sides if three items. (ps. if you do the boxed panties gift, it should be behind the mugs so he does not open it first!)
- Fill the remaining space between the beer mug(s) and the sides of the basket with the beer snacks. * each of these gets a ribboned "sweet message" gift tags too.
- Pack red grass around and between all the items to complete filling the basket, and to keep the items from jostling around.
- When you basket is done, and arranged as you think best, the final touch is your Valentines Day card for him. tuck it somewhere in the center of the basket so it sticks out to be opened first.

Notes for This Valentines Gifts for Him Beer Basket
- If your guy just likes beer, and does not care about micro-brews - forget the variety and just fill the basket with 12 bottles of his favorite brand.
- Only chill two or three bottles of the beer for him to try on this occasion. Save the rest to be chilled and tried on following days. (hot - cold - hot -cold is bad for beers)
- DO NOT wrap the finished basket in gift cellophane - not classy - that stuff is for kid's Easter baskets
