NEW DAD GIFT IDEA
Being a new mom is not the only thing that is completely draining and exhausting. Being a new dad can be equally difficult in its own right! When we had our first baby, I wanted to make my husband a new dad gift. I wanted his 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 a lot of extra things to help me the whole time I was. That is no easy feat, I can assure you!
This ‘World’s Greatest Pop’ gift can work for an expectant father gift, or for a seasoned dad – it’s 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 my man loves a lot of things that have “pop” in them! I was able to do a pretty good mix of sweet and salty snacks.
Cost: This whole gift cost around $25.

How to Assemble a Gift Basket:
Use a large basket. I found this Easter basket at Target in March (timing is everything!) but you can usually find baskets year-round at thrift stores!
Add tissue paper, tea towels or basket liners in the bottom of the basket.
Layer your goods in the basket, trying to display as many different items as you can.
Use balled up tissue paper under smaller items to add height.
Print the ‘World’s Greatest Pop’ tag and tie it or tape it to the front of the gift basket.
I hope you love this gift basket idea. Growing a family is hard work for everyone, and Dads deserve appreciation too!
