Dads to be need to be appreciated and all taken into account, so make sure to make the new Dad feels part of your growing family by getting him these awesome gifts.
The expected baby and mother-to-be are lavished with attention, but the expectant daddy should be part of the fun too. He’ll feel appreciated for all the work he will do with the new baby.
Here are our top ten Father’s Day gifts for daddies-to-be:
10. Slinging pouch
Daddy is going to need to be walking around hands free: holding the dog leash, the sleeping baby and Mom calling on the phone to remember the milk might overwhelm him. By using a sturdy carrier or baby sling, he’ll be able to deliver much more!
9. Engraved Cigar Lighter
A great gift to celebrate the joy of life! More of a tradition, cigar smoking was once done inside of hospitals. Now a days, this is not allowed, so be sure dad celebrates by firing up his cigar far away from the new born with his bros!
8. Movie rental certificate
Dads won’t have time to go to late night movies, so give him the gift of movie watching in the comfort of his own home. He’ll have to pause it a few times during the time it runs, so check on the baby, but nothing is better than relaxing at home with the new family!
7. Baby book
He will not know everything but he will need to learn the fundamentals of baby care. A daddy-oriented book will speak his language and help him on his way to great fatherhood.
6. Diaper changing tool box
What manlier than a tool box? One with diaper changing tools in them! Some of the things included in the tool box are: mask, googles, diaper, ear plugs, pacifier, baby wipes and tongs!
5. Soothing music CD
Not only will this help Dad relax, but at times when the new baby does not want to fall asleep, hypnotic relaxation music will help. Consistent sounds remind the baby of his life before coming into the world and will drift him into slumber.
4. Diaper changing tool belt
Every dad needs to keep tools such as baby wipes and diapers close at hand, so what better way than a tool belt? In the diaper theme (babies do go through lots of them!) this is a twist on the tool box suggestion above. Easily accessible and with great carrying space he will have no excuse as to not be able to change a diaper!
3. Spa gift certificate
Dads never get enough credit and they’re the ones doing all the errands and should be cut some slack. A spa day or maybe just a certificate to an hour long massage will help him regain some energy and focus on the task at hand.
2. Diaper dude bag
He won’t want to be seen in public carrying around the frilly pink diaper bag, so get one that is manly and he’ll love. This diaper bag is durable and with neutral colors he won’t mind lugging around.
1. Picture perfect
Dad will want to capture every moment of your new baby’s life so get him a complete kit that includes both a digital camera and a camcorder! He’ll be ready to capture baby’s first steps or just day to day occurrences that will be great to look back on in a few years.
Also, personalized gifts are a great idea to make daddy-to-be feel even more special. Gifts like a diaper bag that’s been monogrammed is a great way to include him in!
