First of all, I’m here to make a confession. I might have a slight problem. I LOVE putting together fun gift baskets. I can’t help it. I can’t buy someone just one gift – I have to put together an entire basket of items and it’s 100% better if it has a fun theme.
With Father’s Day right around the corner, we’re celebrating all the new dads out there with a new dad gift basket. We’re always so focused on mom that we often forget about dad. We all know mom is the superstar when it comes to having a baby but we can’t forget about dad. Let the new dad know he is loved and important with this fun New Dad Gift Basket.
Not only is this gift basket full of new dad essentials, but I’ve filled it with my favorite must-have baby item – the VTech VM981 Expandable HD Video Baby Monitor with 1 Wi-Fi Camera and 5” Touch Screen from Amazon. I was the one who said video monitors were unnecessary until we got one for Easton. Now, we’re obsessed! It’s the best thing ever and it’s our favorite gift to give to all our friends having babies.
I don’t know about you but most of the new dads I know worry way more than the moms – my hubby being one of them. My husband still can’t listen to my son cry and is constantly checking on him while he sleeps and he is almost two years old. Thanks goodness we have the VTech VM981. The easy-to-install VTech VM981 Expandable Video Monitor gives mom and dad peace of mind with a high-definition color touch screen and remote access via the new MyVTech Baby app for Apple iOS and Android. And, additional monitors can be added to keep an eye on multiple children in different rooms.
There are so many awesome features with the new VTech VM981 Wi-Fi HD Video Monitor and Camera. Not only can you watch what’s happening in real-time on the touchscreen and with the app, but the night vision allows you to check on your little one while the room is completely dark – and we all know that baby’s room needs to be as dark as possible:) The VM981 offers the convenience and portability you’ve been looking for using your home’s Wi-Fi connection to capture baby’s movements and sounds.
Now, lets put this fabulous gift basket together. And, guess what my friends? This New Dad Gift Basket couldn’t be easier to put together. Grab a basket or bin and fill it with items every new dad will need.
Start by adding diapers and wipes. We all know that every new dad needs diapers and wipes – LOTS of diapers and wipes.
Place the super awesome VTech VM981 in the basket.
Then, add a few books about baby and dad. Daddy definitely needs a few fun books to read with baby.
I also made these cute Super Dad and Super Baby cups. How stinkin’ cute are these? Every super dad needs his own travel mug and every super baby needs a fun sippy cup. Plus. it’s super cute for baby and dad to have matching cups.
I’ve created two FREE SVG cut files for you to download so you can make your own matching cups. I used my fabulous Cricut for this project and now I can’t wait to make more for every new dad we know.
Add some hand sanitizer and you have the perfect gift basket for dad. I just can’t get over how cute those Super Dad and Super Baby cups turned out.
