GIFT IDEA FOR NEW DADS
I wish I had remembered to take pictures of this with all the contents. You will just have to use your imagination on this... luckily I was able to find a photo from the shower!
I wanted to make something fun, yet useful, to give at the baby shower for my son and daughter-in-law -- so I put together a manly diaper changing kit.
The first thing I did was buy a tool box. This is a plastic tool box from the Home Depot. I used a Cricut machine to make the letters on self stick vinyl... I put Papa, because I wasn't sure what he was going to be called. My husband is Pop or Poppy. My dad is Dad. My cousin calls her father Daddy. I guess we never know until we actually have kids and the kids start talking.
I filled this thing up with all kinds of paraphernalia.
First, I put in the necessities:
a couple diapers
a small pack of wipes
Boudreaux's Butt Paste
sample size baby powder
And then I had fun with it! I added novelty (yet useful) items as well:
New shop towel (for a changing pad)
small can Lysol
a face mask (one of those disposable dust masks)
a sample size (i.e. as in off the airplane) bottle of Whiskey
I thought this made a fun gift... great so the new Dad didn't feel left out at the shower.
