Congratulations, you are expecting a baby! You’re so excited about this big event, and want to share the news with close family and friend in a special way. If the traditional methods, such as phone calls, a mass text message, a Facebook status update, or an e-mail, aren’t exactly your styles, how about one of these following ideas?
Announce it to a Tee
Receiving a card in the mail from someone is much more exciting than the usual junk mail or bills. Have a t-shirt made for your child that says, “I’m a big brother,” or “I’m a big sister.” Have your child’s picture taken wearing it, and send it in a card to family and friends. Or, have them wear it to a family party, and see who catches on first.
Make up some little gift tags that have the traditional to and from on them, and then add a big bold “We’re” on it. Attach it to a bottle of Prego brand spaghetti sauce. So, it should read something like this: “To: Mom and Dad. From: Us. We’re Prego.”
Who doesn’t love fortune cookies? If you don’t like the cookie itself, reading the fortune is a whole other level of fun in and of itself. Buy a box of La Choy Fortune Cookies. With a pair of tweezers, pull out the fortunes that are already in there. Replace the fortunes with homemade ones that say everything pertaining to babies, such as one-liners from nursery rhymes and songs. Deliver them to friends and family in Chinese takeout boxes.
Deliver the news using the old cliché “There’s a Bun in the Oven”. Gift boxes are easy to find, and so are cinnamon buns. Decorate gift boxes to look like an oven, and place the buns inside. Give them out as party favors, or hand-deliver the news.
Unusual Craving Bar
Host an ice cream party. Serve foods that are commonly craved by pregnant women as toppings, such as pickles, peanut butter, chocolate, and etcetera. It might not take long for them to figure out what your news is once they get to the pickles.
Borrow Master Card’s “priceless” idea. Send out a card with your own version of the famous saying. Something like this, for example: “Monthly Mortgage Payment: $800. Bedroom Renovation: $1,000. Expecting A Little Addition: Priceless.”
Have fun getting creative with your announcement. Your friends and family are sure to be thrilled to receive such wonderful news.
