We were recently invited to a couples baby shower. My husband had the great idea to bring something for the dad. He said, “Why don’t the guys ever get anything?!” Good point, honey.
Turns out, the new dad in this story had recently introduced us to a certain type of Gin. So, it made for an easy gift idea. We packaged together a little basket, bottle of Gin, tonic and a set of earplugs.
Now, I will say this couple is super cool and we knew they would think it was a funny/useful gift. This may not be the gift for just any “dad – to – be” out there. ((Do we really want this guy to drink an entire bottle of Gin, put in earplugs and ignore his kid? No… so don’t read too much into it)) Maybe you could take out the alcohol and replace it with snacks or “energy” drinks of some sort? Either way, it’s the thought that counts… and the new-dad will appreciate the extra love!
