New Dad Survival Kit

You've all heard about Push Presents right?  A little something something that the father buys the mother to mark the occasion of her giving birth to their child.  But what about the dad?  You know - the guy who has really stepped it up over the past 9 months.  He's run to the store without hesitation to get you tums for your heartburn.  He's grilled the pharmacist about what cold and flu meds were ok for you to take because you couldn't sleep at night.  He's spent countless hours in the nursery with you painting, decorating, assembling cribs, hanging (and then rehanging because you changed your mind 100 times) picture frames and shelves.  That guy - who has been your rock, your support, your lifeline over the past several months - he deserves a little something as well. 
Enter the New Dad Survival Kit!  What better way to say "thank you for being the best husband in the world" than by bringing a basket of some of his favorite things to the hospital for while you are waiting for baby to arrive?  I put together this basket for my husband and I can't wait to surprise him with it at the hospital.  Here is a rundown of what I've put in his kit:

  • Snacks:  We are going to be in the hospital for at least a few days and I'm sure the food options won't be the best.  It'll be nice for the hubs to have some of his favorite snacks to munch on.
  • Coffee:  At our childbirth class they warned us that the coffee at the hospital is horrible, so I've packed a couple of iced coffee beverages for when the hubs needs a little pick-me-up.
  • Cigars & Beer:  Havana Honeys premium cigars and a couple of beers to toast and celebrate the birth of our little boy (to sign up for free coupons an to find a retailer near you visit Havana Honeys website here).  

  • Baby essentials:  A couple of items that every daddy should have on hand - diaper wipes, boogie wipes, pacis, and pee-pee teepees
  • Toiletries:  A few travel sized toiletries to freshen up with since he will be staying the night with me
  • Books:  Some reading materials for any down time
I love putting together themed gift baskets so it was a no-brainer to put this New Dad Survival Kit together for my husband.  Not expecting a baby yourself?  This would be a cute and thoughtful gift idea for any expecting father!  

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Scandinavian Tobacco Group, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia  #havanahoneys  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

  5. Such a cute idea! I'm sure he will appreciate it...
    I've been seeing push presents everywhere, raging from thousands of dollars to cute trinkets. I think it's a cute idea but required.

  7. You are such a sweet wifey!! It sounds like your man definitely deserves this. My hubby has been so helpful in helping me do all the labor intensive projects that I have wanted to get done around the house. We joke that instead of a push gift, he's doing "push projects." :)

  36. It is well known that the cleanliness of houses is one of the most important services necessary in cleaning and upgrading our homes to the modern homes, which have been cleaned modern, which would provide the living conditions of the neighborhood and the quality of a competent body in the field with the provision of guarantees that would ensure the full guarantee of the success of the cleaning service There is no need for more money to be lost through requests for house cleaning services that do not meet their needs and are not in line with their wishes because many home cleaning companies are only seeking to offer their services through promotional methods in order to make money only without taking into consideration the ethical and professional conscience As these companies seek to satisfy customers, nothing more than this is accomplished by mastering house cleaning شركة نقل عفش بالرياض
