Being a new dad can be an exciting but scary time. Grab your favorite new(ish) dad one of these great gifts.
These are perfect gifts for your first visit to meet the new addition, baby showers, birthdays, Father’s Day, or just because! Some of these would make great gifts for dads of any age but they are especially great gifts for new dads with young kids under 3.
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.
This one is great, especially if you're looking for a last minute gift. Simply print and add a handprint. You can put it in a frame to make it more gift like and you'll have a sweet and sentimental gift.
For sentimental types, or just those that like to write, consider this "Letters to you" book. Inside are questions, prompts, and space to write their new child a letter for the first 18 years of their life.
Too manly for a traditional diaper bag? A backpack diaper bag is subtle and they are actually super versatile. We switched to one from this brand when we had our second child and we've never looked back.
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.
Whether they're playing outside with the kids, working in the garage, or showering a portable blue tooth speaker is a great way for your guy to play some tunes...just make sure he keeps it kid friendly when little ears are around!
My husband loves his so much that we're getting one for my dad for Father's Day.
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!
