Not sure what to get your man for Valentine’s Day or an anniversary? How about a beer bouquet? It’s simple to make, and he’s sure to love it.
Whine alert – men have it SO much easier than women when it comes to gift-buying! Amiright? Especially when it comes to an occasion for a smaller gift, like Valentine’s Day or anniversaries. All the guys have to do is stop by the florist (or Trader Joe’s!) for a bouquet of flowers and a card…but there is no “standard” romantic gift for men! (Unless I’ve been missing something all these years??)
Our 8th wedding anniversary was this summer, and we don’t typically do big anniversary gifts for each other. I wanted to get my husband more than a card, but didn’t have any good small gift ideas either. So I decided to get him a 6 pack of craft beer…but dress it up a little bit 😉
A beer bouquet!
It was pretty simple to put together – I used my Silhouette to cut out paper roses and leaves from red and green card stock. If you don’t have a cutting machine, though, you can find plenty of rolled paper flower templates on Pinterest to print and cut out by hand.
I rolled the paper rose around the top of the beer bottle, using a few pieces of double-sided tape to attach it. Then I added some leaves to the side of the bottles and a green circle to the lid.
Of course, I couldn’t put this beautiful beer bouquet back into a plain old 6 pack holder…so I used some wrapping paper to cover it up and make it look a little bit nicer 😉
Ta-da! A bouquet for men! My husband was surprised and impressed. And another positive, when he put the beer in the fridge he didn’t have to worry about guests grabbing his special “rose” beers by mistake.
Maybe this will become an anniversary tradition! This DIY Beer Bouquet would make a great gift for Valentine’s Day, too, don’t you think?
