I think these party tubs are so much fun!

I especially like the "Ocean Drive" hue.
Not only would these be great storage vessels for ice-cold beverages at your first outdoor BBQ of 2012, but I also think they'd make cute toy bins for your child's nursery, no?
Or, an adorable gift box...say, for a BBQ-themed gift!
(Mother's Day and Father's Day will be here before you know it.)
You could fill it with his (or her) favorite beer,
along with fun new grilling utensils and picnic supplies.
Voila! Instant, fun, & practical gift.
