NEW DAD GIFT IDEA
Being a new mom is not the only thing that is completely draining and exhausting. Being a new dad (especially if you are a good one) is equally difficult in its own right. I wanted this gift basket to be fun, but most importantly I wanted to show him how much I appreciate his commitment to our little family. He may not have carried the baby, but he did extra to help me the whole time I was. That is no easy feat, I can assure you.
Another thing I love about this gift is that it can work for an expectant father gift, or for a seasoned dad – this gift basket is perfect for Father’s Day or just whenever you want to show appreciation to the best ‘pop’ ever!
WORLD’S BEST POP GIFT BASKET
I decided to go with the “pop” theme because I had never seen it done before, and coincidentally Bryce loves a lot of things that have “pop” in them! Here is a list of what’s in my gift basket, since you can’t see it all in the main picture:
- Otter Pops (I put these at the bottom of my basket, they made a great base and made the basket look huge!)
- Corn Pops
- Pop Tarts
- Soda pop
- Popped chips
- Blow Pops
- Pop Rocks
- Baby Bottle Pop
- Ring Pop
Other ideas not shown here:
- Tootsie Pops
- Push Pop
- Poppyseed Muffins or Muffin Mix
For the basket I just pulled out the biggest Easter basket we had, but if you don’t have one on hand you can usually find great baskets at thrift stores for around $1! Then I layered my goods in the basket, trying to display as many different items as I could.
The whole basket only cost me about $25 to put together. I also like how I was able to do a pretty good mix of sweet and salty, so it wasn’t just a whole bunch of the same thing. Show your man some love, growing a family is hard work for everyone!
