If the dad you're buying for is a car or motorcycle fanatic snag one of these cute, 1st I stole daddy's heart, shirts or bodysuits for their son or daughter to wear. They come in a variety of vehicles and a generic car keys version. There are also versions for grandpa!
For a dad who's a bit more low key a nice keychain or dog tag can make a wonderful gift. They can be personalized just for them. These will take some time to be made so make sure you order one ASAP if you want to go this route.
A lot of dad's find they really enjoy babywearing...but sharing with your wife and constantly readjusting is a pain.
My personal recommendation is the Lillebaby. My husband is able to get our daughter in and adjust this one all by himself when he needs to. It also is made of a lot of mesh to help keep dad and baby cool as dads tend to run pretty warm.
This little eye mask was crucial to our success in the early days.
Breastfeeding and caring for a newborn, especially for first-time parents, requires a bit of light at night. Wearing a blackout eye mask, and occasionally earplugs allowed my husband to get some much-needed rest while I took over caring for our newborn.
My husband wore it until he wore it out! We'll definitely be purchasing another one when baby number two comes along. This is the perfect gift for a new dad kit.
A new dad would be happy to have any of these gifts to go along with their greatest gift…their kid!
