Baby Boy Questions

I'll have to start by telling you baby boy gifts are really not my strong point. 

It kind of stresses me out--no, it really stresses me out--when I need a gift for a baby boy. I wish I could think of the perfect gift and then stick with it for every single baby boy to whom I give a gift! I have done lots of different things in the past, but I haven't been completely satisfied with most of them.

Do you think I am getting closer to the right gift with this one?


I used my Silhouette cutting machine and Heat Transfer paper to make this and it was pretty easy to do. The hardest part was finding a decent quality, solid-colored t-shirt that didn't have pictures, designs, logos, or a pocket on it.

I finally found this t-shirt at Wal-Mart and it seemed so cheap (it was) for a gift. But, I made it pretty (pretty man-ly that is) and bought pants to go with it and I think it turned out pretty well. Of course, this is coming from the lady with no boys and very little experience with little boys.

What do you think?
Is it a good baby boy gift?
Could it be my "keeper" gift idea?

I'd love to know what you think! Just leave a comment with your opinion.

I have a 4 year old boy, and I say yes! I would have put his on him as a baby too. So cute... if trucks can be cute.

I have 3 little boys and I think that shirt is ADORABLE! I would love to receive that for them!

I think it is pretty cute. Boys love trucks and sports :) Did you look at the plain t-shirts at Target too?? Super cute!!! You did a good job!

Having three boys of my own, I think it's great!!! I think my 9 and 6 year old would even like it!! :)

I think it's cute. Put a ruffly skirt with it and you have something I'd put on my baby girl to make my husband super happy. :D

Absolutely LOVE this. What a great idea. And it looks so professional too. What a fun toy the silhouette must be.

I love it! Definitely a keeper! And, I love the new logo by the way! I'm praying for a little baby boy so I can make a t-shirt with a dinosaur that says "steogersaurus." I might just do some for my girls anyway...who knows if I'll ever get a boy?

Looks great to me--I think it's a keeper. But then, what do I know? And for many an older boy (and many girls), you could do a got trains? shirt.

If I had a little boy or a Grandson, I would buy that! Excellent idea and you can add "Got Cars" and "Got Bikes".

I Love It! I was looking for a boyish pattern to put on a onsies for a prego friend! Thanks you did a great job.

That's great! I want to make one for my 4 year old who is completely in LOVE with trucks. Where did you get the images?
Oh - and if you ever need plain shirts again try your local craft store. Michaels and JoAnn's usually have them for about $2 each in all sizes, right next to the iron on stuff.
