Is someone close to you going to be a dad for the first time? Help celebrate the arrival of his new baby with these awesome gifts:
1. Baby carrier
Baby carriers make great gifts for new dads. As babies grow into toddlers, it’s better to get one that includes an infant insert. Our top pick is Tula’s Ergonomic Carrier – it’s easy-to-use, comfortably snug to support a child beginning at 15 lbs (or 7 pounds when worn with an infant insert) until 45 lbs. Also, it features an ergonomic M-position seat supporting optimal development for your baby’s body.
Get the Ergonomic Carrier at Amazon.com for $139.00.
2. Dad’s Playbook
Having a baby is a life-changing experience. So why not help keep new fathers in check with this inspirational playbook? Written by Tom Limbert, the playbook promises “wisdom for fathers from the greatest coaches of all time”. It is is full of quotes, insights and illustrations, with advice on being a leader, scoring under pressure, and how to encourage team spirit.
Get it at Uncommon Goods for $13.00.
3. Whiskey stones
This gift is literally, whiskey on the rocks (just without the whiskey). Designed by Andrew Hellman (who is a fan of single malt scotch), these rocks are made of natural soapstones. Moreover, it has the ability to retain temperature for extended periods of time and due to its softness, it won’t scratch the glass.
Get these at Uncommon Goods, starting from $20.
4. Streaming service
Daddies (and mommies) won’t be able to the cinemas anytime soon, so it’s probably a good idea to bring the movies home to him. Consider getting him a premium streaming service such as Netflix (from $7.99/month), Amazon Video (from $8.99/month), Hulu (from $7.99/month), HBO Now (from $14.99/month), Sling TV (from $20/month), and YouTube TV (from $35/month).
5. A manly diaper bag
Every dad needs a diaper bag – and no the feminine, flowery kind (well, unless it’s his thing). Diaper bags are a must-have accessory for all parents and you definitely can’t go wrong with these cool designs from Diaper Dude.
Get one for the new dad at Diaper Dude, starting from $59.99.
6. Something to help put the baby to sleep
Every parent lacks sleep and are always tired. So Dr. Harvey Karp’s The Happiest Baby On The Block is the perfect gift for all new fathers! His best-selling package, Happiest Bundle, includes two DVDs, two books, a super-soothing sleep sounds CD, and a swaddling solution.
Get this amazing package at Happiest Baby for $69.75.
