Great Gifts for New Dads (or Dads-to-Be):


Great Gift for a Dad-to-be: Man Behing the Bump funny Tshirt

The Man Behind the Bump t-shirt

I saw a picture of a guy that wore this shirt to the hospital when his wife gave birth and it just cracked me up. – Similar shirts, $14


Great gift for an expectant father: Be Prepared Handbook

Be Prepared book

There’s nothing I love more than a good field guide. Not only is this book a fun take on getting ready for parenthood, it actually gets really good reviews for being a great resource. You can shop it here for around $10


Unique gifts for a new father: Bluetooth speaker

Washable Bluetooth speaker

Perfect for a dad who like to rock out but doesn’t particularly enjoy the remnants of baby’s sticky hands all over his electronics. It’s pricey at $270 but we get a ton of use out of our bluetooth speaker with camping, picnics, hanging outside and even just cleaning out the garage with some tunes. You can find it here.


Inexpensive gift for a dad-to-be: DIY baby countdown printable

Countdown printable

An excited Dad-to-be would love this. (Also great for the dad-to-be like my husband who could not for the life of him remember how many weeks we had to go.) $7 on Etsy.

Daddy & Me t-shirts

Love this battery charged combo for the tired guy in your life. $27


New Dad Gift Idea: Camo diaper bag
Cool Diaper Bag

I think everyone would love this awesome diaper bag back pack, but its lack of frills might make it more appealing for the dude in you life. Water-resistant camo printed polyester with leather trim. Five exterior pockets including two insulated side bottle pockets. Includes an interior padded laptop sleeve, changing pad included, and is free of harsh chemicals such as PVC, BPA and Phthalates.

Dad-Friendly Baby Carrier

I love seeing dads babywearing. Keeping comfort and street cred in mind, a LILLEBaby Carrier is a great product that tends to work well for both mom and dad.
