Buy a baby bottle and out the test in it and leave it where he will see it
With our first, DH was helping a mate move. I got there before he did, and as he walked through the door, I said "hello daddy". He let a few choice words go, so I showed him the test to prove it
The rest i have just blurted it out "I'm pregnant". Nothing creative lol.

I was too excited to get creative, I called DH at work and told him, he didn't believe the test or me (we'd been TTC for 2 years), went to the doctors, doctor had to talk him into believing it. I was so frustrated.
With DD he told me to test because he thought I was pregnant, I didn't believe him. I POAS and left it while I went to hang washing out, he checked, saw two lines and came out to tell me, I was in disbelief. We were 'open to conceiving', but naively didn't think it would happen so soon especially after our earlier struggle.

Dress the kids in shirts that say 'I'm a big sister/brother!' and let him figure it out!
We have a cat baby at the moment who we both love to pieces (but sadly no human babies yet) so I've bought a tiny onesie that says on it 'My sister is a cat' which Ive wrapped up and stored ready to give to DH when it is finally our turn.

With my DS, it certainly was interesting! And I was stone cold sober too! Stupid slippery floor. I wasn't laughing then as was in a lot of pain and was only allowed Panadol after the BFP, but I can laugh about it now. Certainly a good story to tell him when he's older

Or maybe a text like 'hey in *due month* we'll have 33.33333% more children"
My uncle told his daughter that his DF was expecting by saying soon you'll have 3 step siblings and 3 half siblings"
He's getting married to his fiancée who has 3 children and his ex has 1 child to her new husband and 1 on the way & plus his new baby makes 3.
Just to make his daughter have to do the maths. Lol.

My DH is a chef and I came across a site called cafepress that sell all sorts of clothing with different slogans, etc. I purchased a onesie that had "Future chef just like my daddy" and a teddy dressed a chef on it.
After our failed IVF attempts, we had decided to wait until next year to decide whether to go through IVF again our go on the adoption waiting list.
DH was laying in a hospital bed and I went in to see him and held the onesie over my belly, he read it and said "that's cute where did you get that from?" Then I told him that he needed to read it again and he was like "Nnoooo", I just nodded my head and brought out the 3 pregnancy tests to confirm it. He started crying and had the largest smile on his face. His hospital stay was a great one after that :-), even though it took us weeks to realise it was true and happened naturally.

It's not how I told hubby, but it's how we told our parents....
We have a 'my family' sticker on our car, and we added a third bub to the family and hung around the car when we arrived at their house, chatting and nonchalantly playing with the sticker. My mum cried, and his dad actually didn't get it. He said, 'hang on, you've got 3 kids there, that's a mistake...' we had to give him a 'look' for him to get it.

With this current pregnancy it was 0530 in the morning and I had done a test the night before which ( I thought) was negative. Anyway, I did a test as I had a feeling but couldn't tell if it was my imagination or if there was a line
So dh woke up to me shoving a test in his face at 0530 saying " I think there's a line do u see a line??" he was so tired but managed to confirm there was a line.
I then dug the night befores test out of the bin and there it was a very obvious line
Bfp!!! Little bug due 25/6/12
