DIY New Baby Gift for the New Dad

A new addition to the family brings major changes to the family dynamic. Often with the birth and delivery of a new baby, a lot of attention is directed toward the mother.

This New Dad Gift Idea is the perfect way to celebrate this moment with him and boost his confidence for his new role as a daddy!

Together we enjoy traveling the world, and, of course, going on creative dates! I am a former theatre teacher who now stays at home with a spunky little boy. I love dancing, hosting parties, photography, organizing & chocolate!

    1. Hello Kate! Our printable pack comes as is, but you could always contact the designer if you want some wording adjusted! Courtney designed this one and her site is:
      Also, if it helps I am planning to give this to my husband for Father’s Day and everything still applies. I am only leaving out some of the candy tags that say “you will be”. There are plenty of candy tags to choose from and I just omitted those. I hope that helps!

  1. I’ve never printed on to an iron on transfer before. How does this work? can I just get the paper and print from my normal printer? Where do I buy the sheets from? I’m assuming Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, or any Fabric Store?

    I love this! its so cute! thank you for all your great ideas! My husband always asks where I get these surprise ideas from! 🙂

    1. Welcome to the world of iron-on transfers! They are so simple and fun! You can purchase the papers at any of those stores you mentioned or Amazon is a great source too! You print right from your home printer. My biggest tip is to follow the directions on the specific package you purchase. Some iron-ons require you to print the mirrored image and others you print just the normal image. We provide both types in this pack! Enjoy!

  2. I’m expecting a new little one in September and I can’t wait to give this to my hubby!! Great job, Sarina!!
