Root Beer Sample Pack–The Gift for the Guy that’s Hard to Buy For

Of all the people in my life Kent (my husband) is the hardest person to buy for. He doesn't get excited easily and doesn’t have a love for materialistic things like I do. Yes I’ll go ahead and say it….I love THINGS!

Cute things, sparkly things, colorful things. I’m easy to buy for but Kent is soooo not!

This year I had the perfect gift in mind!!!!!

Kent loves root beer almost as much as he loves our little Chihuahua Abby. As some of you long time followers know Abby is his princess! I searched high and low hunting down all kinds of bottled root beer. If you decide to do this let me save you a little time. Central Market and Whole Foods had the best selection of bottled root beer that you can buy per bottle.  I had no idea there were so many different brands of root beer.

This hardest part of this project was hunting down the root beer. After that I just threw everything together and walla! The container is just a wine bottle holder I picked up for free at Central Market.

Oh and on a side note……..I got carded when I bought the root!!!! She was confused as to why I was confused and I was confused but we got it all worked out…..hehehehe. Made me chuckle a little. Yes I chuckle!

I also picked up a glass mug and a pint of his favorite vanilla ice cream so he could make root beer floats which are also very close to his heart.

 

This gift was a success!
