Care Package/ Gender Announcement Ideas...

Posted by on Nov. 12, 2009 at 8:47 PM

I (hopefully) will find out what the gender of this baby is in 2 1/2 weeks and I am trying to think of ways to let DH know. I was going to send him a care package with "It's a Boy/Girl" banners, balloons, bubble gum cigars, and any other little favors I can find. I would like to put some more in there though. He is not a book person and I do not want to send anything "mushy". We are more goofy vs sentimental. Does anyone have any other ideas for things to put in there? TIA!!

Go to the party store and get a big box and fill it with balloons with the announcements of it's a boy/girl. I would stay away from the latex, they don't last as long. The foil ones last forever!

Make sure that they are anchored to the box and let your hubby know which end to open up. So when he does open it the balloons will pop out. Then get a frame card (the cards you can insert pictures into and put a picture of the ultrasound picture. Then maybe some "it's a boy/girl" cigars or bubblegum cigars.

I love the balloon idea.  I would probably get a onesie that said.  Daddy's little girl or daddies little line backer and put it on a doll.  Ok in reality I so could not keep that secret and I would probably tell him the first time he called me.

I love the colored camofolge outfits. Maybe include a correct onzie. 

How about some things-- like paper cups, plates, and napkins and maybe a cake mix or some cookies.. With the ribbons, ballons, and cigars he could almost have a party to celebrate it with his buddies...
