If you’re expecting a baby in 2020 or 2021 and you haven’t told your husband yet that you’re actually pregnant, consider surprising your spouse with the news with a creative pregnancy announcement to a husband.
Your partner, husband, spouse or significant other is the first person you give the news to.
You can also present him with the celebratory intel in a unique way even if this is your second or third child together. Every year, creative product producers come up with fun ideas and with this being the quarantine era,I’ve seen a few extraordinary note worthy ones.
Here is a round up of over 80:
1. LIFE IS A BOX OF CHOCOLATES
If your sweetie has a sweet tooth, surprise him with the news spelled out in chocoloates. Order a box of it here at by the seller on Etsy.
2. MASK UP
In this quarantine era, as you’re heading and he turns to you for a mask, give him one that announces his new role. You can order this from a Redbubble merchant.
3. SCRATCH IT
Give your husband (and later your family and closest friends) a lottery scratch off card that reveals that the baby is coming.
You can get a pack of 5 on Amazon.
4. SPECIAL DELIVERY
Order a delivery of diapers addressed to him. He will be certainly surprised by the package and as he opens up the box will instantly get the message when he sees it is a pack of diapers. Order a pack via Amazon
5. QUIZZICAL PUZZLE
Stimulate his brain and the element of surprise by giving him a gif that is essentially a puzzle that spells out a special message. Get one here. Or create a puzzle of the photo of the with the ultrasound. This company can help you do that and it ships FREE to US addresses.
6. SHELVE IT
Clear a shelf in the office, kitchen cabinet or bedroom with a sticky note that reads, “Daddy, make room for me.” You can also place some baby toys, clothes or booties. He would be thrilled to know the news.
7. MESSAGE ON A TEE
Tell him you saw a T-Shirt on sale and ordered it one for him. It will be one declaring he is a dad to be and make sure to get a design that your husband may be more likely to wear. Otherwise, he can just wear it at your co-ed baby shower or the work shower. Order one like this one on Etsy here
And for a dad who is not a first time dad, this dad again shirt sold at Etsy works.
8. CHALK IT UP
Buy a chalk board or a felt board an put the “you’re gonna be a dad” message on it. Get a cheap chalkboard frame board from Amazon here. Or you can use a felt board frame liks this one.
9. BOTTOM’S UP
If you have a husband who is a coffee drinker, switch out his usual morning cup of joe with a special cup that has the pregnancy announcement at the bottom. You can order one here.
Another tip is to simply set an extra plate at the table at lunch, or dinner and set a baby bottle as the drink.
10. SILVER SPOON
You can also do the spoon which is a common utensil trick you might have seen on the web. Get the spoon here.
11. SCRABBLE IT UP
If your husband is crazy about word games such as scrabble, ask him to play along with you. When it is your turn, share the news by making something related and ask him to spell. He would get delighted with the news.
Buy a Scrabble board game on Amazon.
12. MESSAGE LOADING
Write down a note on your belly such as “Baby inside,” “Coming soon” or “You are a Daddy”. The moment he notices the message, he will turn ecstatic.
13. TEAM SPORTS
If your husband is a sports fanatic, you can buy a junior size shirt or shoes of his favorite game and gift it to him. I like the one above and this one below which you can order in any team colors.
