Giving him one gift is great, provided the said gift is second-to-none. Two gifts? Better than one, we'd say. A basket full of gifts? Now we’re getting somewhere. It'll make your shopping easier, and the occasion—be it a birthday, holiday, anyday—more fun for him since there’s got to be one or two things in there he’ll like and use, no matter how picky he is.
But, truth be told, if you're a stickler for the "basket" part of a gift basket, you won't lay bare much that screams cool from your limited search. When you do choose to expand your mind beyond a basket to a box or set of goodies, let the fun begin. Here, we've uncovered 19 best gift baskets for men—or gift boxes and gift sets—that'll click with guys who's got a stomach for everything, got luxury tastes, or got a thing for cool gear and gadgets.
