Gift Boxes for Men

What foods and snacks do you put in gift boxes for men? Here’s how to create a gift he’ll cherish.

Give him what he wants

“Fill it with stuff I can open and eat, and don’t add flowers.”

That’s what men will probably say if you ask them what to put in their gifts. They want the easy eats and drinks that taste good and last for a while (at least the afternoon or evening).

You’ll find plenty of snacks and beverages in that category. That’s true no matter what the occasion.

If you make gift boxes on occasion, your go-to for items will be a local retailer or specialty store. A professional gift box designer sets their sights on wholesale suppliers. Why? Because the professional buys in quantity to sell that gift box to lots of customers. Such a gift will arrive at a private home, where the man works, or at another location where a celebration is planned.

The gift box shown here includes lots of wines and spirited beverages, all types of items men have no trouble enjoying. Biscotti and chocolate can be seen in this gift, and there are other foods hidden in the back.

If you’re looking for additional snack items, you can add:

  • Chips
  • Popcorn
  • Pretzels
  • Jerky
  • Salami
  • Cheese
  • Crackers

A set of sturdy plates, cups, and napkins is also a welcome addition.

Styling gift boxes for men

Men enjoy the whole presentation aspect of receiving a gift, but they’re not overly fussy about it. What they care about most is the why and what – why am I receiving this gift, and what’s in it? From there, their eyes glaze over the contents and decide what they’ll taste first.

Like women, men especially like seeing something in their comfort zone, something they’ve enjoyed in the past. Alongside that, it’s fun to see an item another friend has recommended or a snack they’ve always wanted to try. This is why it’s important to know what men enjoy eating and drinking. When you know the person and can add what they like, you’ve created a winning gift.

Keep these ideas in mind as you make gift boxes for men. You’ll make a strong impression and great memories with every design.
