New Dad Toolkit - Perfect Baby Shower Gift for New Dad.

It has been years since I put one of these new dad toolkits together. It is the perfect co-ed baby shower gift for the new dad with a sense of humor. Dad shouldn't be left out of all the fun.

Both my sis and I are planning co-ed baby showers for dear old friends, so I tracked down all my old graphic files to put a couple more of these together.

You can get most everything you need at Target. You could also try the dollar store. The biggest expense is the The Baby Owner's Manual: Operating Instructions, Trouble-Shooting Tips, and Advice on First-Year Maintenanceby Louis Borgenicht, md and Joe Borgenicht, dad. But IMHO, the book pulls the whole shower gift together. Not to mention, it's a great reference for new parents. Beautifully designed and written.

The shopping list.

  • 15 oz bedtime bath - johnsons

  • soft cloth baby wipes - target

  • 2oz hand sanitizer - target

  • baby owners manual
    louis borgenicht, md
    joe borgenicht, dad

  • safety goggles

  • masks - 3m

  • ear plugs

  • plastic tool box - stanely

  • optional - diapers, onesies, finger stuffed toys

The new dad toolkit labels are here.

Print the first page on a heavier stock, cut, hole punch and attach with a string.

Print the second page on an adhesive label sheet or regular paper and mount with super77 or preferred glue.

The labels are not fancy. Just simply designed to make dad laugh.

Very cute! I think a toolbelt would be a great addition too. I have that book stashed away for when friends of ours get pregnant.
