2. You’re My Kind Of Brew Valentine’s Day Gift Basket

If the one you admire likes their beer, then this Valentine’s Day basket is perfect. While it has a more masculine edge (there is a bucket, afterall), it does make a fun gift without being overly romantic. 

However, the card paper hearts really bring this together – as does the cheeky monkey! Fill it with real ice cubes too, so the beer can be cracked open right away. 

3. For The Single Bestie Valentine’s Day Gift Basket

There is nothing that will cheer the bestie in your life more than a hot guy holding a baby animal book. 

This cheeky Valentine’s (or should we say Galentine’s) basket is filled with fun things to give to your BFF. Add some chocolate and a cute card – make them Valentine’s Day themed – and you’re good to go.

Don’t forget to place it all in a basket too – they can always repurpose it.

4. Fun And Cheesy Valentine’s Day Gift Basket

For example, Milk Duds. Written on a sticker is: ‘Your love is no dud!!’

It is fun yet thoughtful, and doesn’t cost a lot of money to put together either. Even the basket has heart shapes cut out from candy and chocolate wrappers stuck on it. 

Add in a photo with a corny frame for that extra cheesiness.

5. Sport Loving Valentine’s Day Gift Basket

This Valentine’s Day gift basket is perfect for the guy or girl in your life who loves sport. It is a fun basket to put together too, as you can make the colors fit with their favorite team.

11. Handmade Gifts Valentine’s Day Gift Basket
