baby-shower-favor-cigarHello there lovelies! Today I”m excited to be making up a fun new Dad gift idea or baby shower favor with my contributor Havana Honeys in mind. Well, not Nicki specifically… her husband Nate. Nicki and Nate are expecting their third baby and we here at NellieBellie are over the moon excited for them and couldn’t wait to start the gifting and celebrating. Cigars gifted by the new Dad to his buddies and family is an old tradition of days gone by. Probably because new mothers sort of steal the thunder a wee bit. Rightly so, rightly so. But, it’s an old tradition…

…and I adore old traditions.

And I adore Nicki and Nate.

So, Nate… I’m sending you cigars for you to hand out to all your buddies in celebration of the new baby. Havana Honeys, to be exact. In two flavors… Original. Cause… original (isn’t original always a winner?). And sweet honey. Cause… it sounds like a winner!

Cigar baby shower or new dad gift ideasThose of you that would like to make these fun new Dad gifts… it’s super easy! I even created a printable for you to simply print and attach. Even though I already know that Nicki and Nate are having a baby boy I DID include an It’s A Girl printable for those that may need it.

cigar-baby-shower-favors-tutorialTo Make a Cigar New Dad Gift:

  1. Insert a Havana Honey Cigar into a clear bag (bags made for pretzel rods that you find at your local craft supply store are perfect!). Fold the bag down a couple times to close.
  2. Cut out the printable leaving two connected to each other down the center. This will allow you to fold it over and have a back and front… tada!
  3. Staple the printable to the bag.
  4. Use a hole punch to punch two holes into the printable.
  5. Attach a ribbon.

Three cheers for Nate and his new baby boy! Congrats Nate and Nicki, we are so excited for the two of you and can’t wait to meet that little guy!

  1. This makes me giggle because I’m not really an expert on cigars ;). Yes, I’m thinking mine were about 5 inches. Is that smaller than average?

  2. I thought this was a great idea super cute. I went ahead and purchase the cigars but here’s a question I have for you; The cigars you show are smaller than normal cigars correct? because the ones that I received were tiny about 5 inches long

  3. Well, shoot. I was going to promote it on my FB page, but maybe I won’t. I know he saw it on Instagram. You, girl, are the kindest. He will be so happy! PS. He follows your site like a hawk. We both do. XOXO

  4. Don’t tell him! Although, he probably already saw. I thought it would be super fun to give something to him too :)

  5. Oh my gosh, I’m just now seeing this! THESE ARE ADORABLE! And I can’t tell you how much my husband is going to tear up when he gets them. No joke. Janel, you’re the sweetest. I sincerely hope you know that!
