Q: Will the gift recipient receive an email at purchase?Asked by Rachel G., September 2021

Hi Rachel, we can email the gift recipient upon request, but we do not automatically email gift recipients. If there is a gift message, we will include a hard copy of the gift message inside the box.


Q: I’m waiting to gift my son in law with a box also while my daughter is pregnant, what do the boxes containAsked by Lisa R., November 2019

The Rad Dad Box answered...November 2019

Hi Lisa, thank you so much for your interest in the box and congratulations to your family! A typical regular box will include a Dad-themed book, a self-care product for Dad, a toy or Dad-themed onesie for the baby (as well as a guide on how Dads can use the toy to help bond with baby and help promote baby's development), and one other product (some months, this product is for Dad, other months, it's for baby). Our Deluxe boxes include everything that comes in the regular boxes, plus 2-3 more products for Dad and baby. We do have photos of our past boxes on our Cratejoy listing, which you can see by clicking through the photo on our main Cratejoy page. Thanks again for...

I loved my box. We had our membership for almost 2 years. We were able to set up our profile and got items that matched what we put down. My boxes had a toy for the baby, a children’s book to read, an activity to do together, and something for me (usually something to eat or a grooming product). We also got near little shirts or onesies. You can change your profile as you go to fit dad’s and baby’s...

Q: Hi, I am currently pregnant and due July 2, I saw this and thought it was a prefect gift for my husband for his bday which is in August! Thought it would be a sweet gift to get from the baby to him. How do you know the appropriate box to give when the baby will only be a few weeks old? Is this good for newborns? Asked by Jessie I., June 2019

I did this for each of my sons when there babies were born, they loved it and she works with you to customize it. She was so good helping me with adding something because I didn’t want to leave the 4 year old out. My sons and there wives loved it.

I got a subscription for my husband, and was blown away by the personalized service. In my experience, the people who curate the boxes will reach out to you via email to make sure the choices are age-appropriate, and something you’ll like/use. We loved every box.

by Rachel G., June 2019

Hi Jessie! We give you several options at checkout that allow you to choose which box you feel will be best for your baby. We normally segment the boxes based on age. We will also be offering customized boxes again in July and will reach out to you to discuss the box's contents if you choose this option. Last of all, we also offer a one-time Rad Dad Newborn Starter Kit filled with products that we found essential for the...

Q: What age baby is this box for? I have a 9mo. Asked by Holly O., June 2019

Hi Holly! The boxes are appropriate for newborn-3 years old. We usually segment the baby product by age, or find a toy with a long shelf-life that will appeal to this broad age range (typically a stuffed animal or something similar). We do have a few customers with older children and we customize those boxes.

I have been a subscriber since before my son was born, and now he's 2. Every month we got a very well curated number of items, which have always included a book, which my son loves, awesome toys and sometimes a good snack! The quality of the items is excellent; it's a great value for its price.
I give so much importance to being a good father, and this box gets it! Thanks Michelle and family for the wonderful experience and an awesome customer support.

This is such an amazing idea for the new dad to be! I wanted to surprise my husband and make him feel special too. He loves his boxes and I’m so happy I chose to do this for him! There are so many great gifts for both dad and baby depending on your choice. Regardless, everything is great quality!

Loved It!

I got this box as a way to make my husband feel special when we found out we were expecting. He lit up every month when his box arrived, and that was so wonderful! When I submitted mostly positive feedback to the curator, she honed in on the one thing that he didn't love as much as the rest, and she personally sent a note every month to make sure we would be completely happy with the contents. Talk about next level customer service! I recommend this box <3

I loved this box. I got it for my husband for Father’s Day. The gifts were well planned and he always got a little something for himself. The attention to detail and communication from the woman who does this was great! Would definitely recommend!
