How to Pick a Funny Baby Shower Present for Dads
When looking for a funny gift for a new dad, there are a few different things you want to consider. First, be sure to consider dad’s personality.
Pick a gift that he’s likely to see the humor in. Different people can have very different senses of humor, and you don’t want to pick something that will offend the dad-to-be.
Another thing you should think of is the rest of the guests who will be at the baby shower. You may need to tone down your gift or save it for a more private time depending on who will be there. For example, if the mom-to-be’s grandmother will also be in attendance, it may be embarrassing to her or the new dad if you give a gift with a sexual reference.
Thinking about the father’s profession can also help you in selecting a funny gift.
There are many t-shirts, bodysuits, mugs, pacifiers, and more for either dad, baby, or both with puns related to different professions. Dad may get a kick out of something that references his job.
Another thing to think about is dad’s likes. If he is a big movie or sports, fan, you may be able to find a funny gift related to something he loves.
Once you’ve selected the perfect gift for the new dad, the next thing you can think about is how you want to wrap it. Sure, you could just cover the box with some wrapping paper or place it in a gift bag, but why not make the way you present your gift be as unique as the gift itself?
Both your gift and your gift wrapping are sure to be the topic of conversation at the baby shower!
Being a new dad isn’t easy. Your friend or family member is going to need more humor and advice to help get them through the first year and beyond.
Hopefully we’ve helped you select the right gift that perfectly captures the sense of humor of the new dad you’re shopping for.
