Father's Day Gift Guide 2017

The BroBasket

The BroBasket

I received The BroBasket in exchange for an honest review. The opinions contained within this post are mine and may vary from the opinions of others.


About The BroBasket-

The BroBasket started out with this true story, way back in 2013, starring a fellow classmate in our CSUCI MBA program… it went something like this;

My fiance (now husband) sent me a bouquet of flowers and I leapt with glee!  That evening as I thanked him for the gesture I asked “Well why don’t I send you some flowers at work to repay the favor?”.  He laughed and respectfully declined but retorted with, “I don’t want flowers, but you can send me a bucket of beer instead!”  After searching the internet and quickly realizing I couldn’t send him a bucket of beer, I realized what a cool concept that would be!     

The Seed Was Planted

And there it was, the seed had been planted for what would eventually become TheBroBasket.com. Our Entrepreneurship class overwhelmingly choose it as the business we would start in our classroom.  As a whole, the class worked on the various aspect of the business plan; some wrote lengthy marketing ideas, others ran tons of theoretical sales numbers and financial figures, while others came up with a logo and even some prototypes.  At the end of the class the four Vice Presidents stood in front of a panel of real life venture capitalists in hopes of getting the idea funded and turning it into an actual business!  After all, as our Professor Doug Lane once said “Anyone can have an idea, but getting an MBA is about turning that idea into a business”.

Today we ship our BroBasket’s all over the country, with 1000’s upon 1000’s of happy customers served.  Even the male centric nature of our brand has not deterred some 1/3 of our gift recipients from being female (women love us too!).  It’s not that we just make some of the coolest gifts for guys out there (because we do), but that our customers love that they can send their friends and family their favorite alcohol in a custom gift basket on their special day, because what makes a better gift for any occasion other than booze?!

What We Thought-

Father’s Day is coming, as a matter of fact it is 8 days away. I never know what to get my husband especially since our almost 4 year old was born on, you guessed it Father’s Day. I can never top that gift and told him right after our son was born that he would never get another Father’s Day gift from me again because that was enough for a lifetime HA!

When I found The BroBasket I broke the rule. I love reviewing products as y’all know and Father’s Day is a time that I can spoil my husband a little and say that it is from both of our boys (this is his first Father’s Day as a Dad of 2). This is such a unique concept and honestly I love it!

Back in the day when we were young, wild and free (before we had kids and responsibilities) my husband loved a good Crown Royal and Coke (or Mountain Dew; if you haven’t tried it please do!!) We have known each other for years and I recall him always enjoying this drink. When I saw that it was available by The BroBasket I knew that I wanted to incorporate it into his gift. I was also allowed to add in popcorn and playing cards.

For a little less than $100 I was able to get a nice sized bottle of Crown Royal, 4 bags of popcorn (regular, kettle, cheese and caramel), a deck of playing cards, 2 cans of Coca Cola, some candy treats and a great glass to serve his drink in that has The BroBasket logo on it.

I love that this gift comes wrapped really neatly so everything was together and not scattered all over the shipping box. I can tell that a lot of time and love was put into the basket and the wooden crate style box will be used to hold our odds and ends for years to come because it is made from great materials.

If you are looking for a great gift for your husband, dad or a special guy in your life check out The BroBasket

They also offer non-alcohol gifts for those who prefer other gifting options.
