New Dad Gifts
Congrats To The New Daddy!

New dad gifts are great because...

  • Everybody thinks of the new baby first, then maybe of the mother and who thinks of the new dad? You do!  
  • You are the new mum and think daddy has earned a treat, too! Many of these gift ideas also make a great Father's Day gift for dad's (first) Father's Day and for his birthday, Valentine's gift for Dad or Christmas gift for Dad from baby!
  • You know the father-to-be or new dad very well but not the rest of the family 
  • The new dad is your son, brother or best buddy and you want to get something special for him, too
  • You have been invited to a dadchelor party / man shower / baby  stag and want to bring a present
  • Dad is the one primarily looking after the baby

a father is someone who carries pictures where his money used to be... text written plus a photo of a dad carrying a baby... and sometimes he carries the baby, too!

You see, there are many reasons to get a little something for new fathers! And sometimes there needs not even be a reason to give dad a little surprise... 

Moreover dadchelor parties, also known as man shower or baby stag are becoming more and more popular. Wikipedia says: Having a dadchelor party... is considered to be one of the new emerging trends for fathers in the 21st century. 

Overall, giving a gift to a new dad is a thoughtful gesture that acknowledges and celebrates his new role and the significant life change of becoming a parent. 

 June 16, 2024 is (new) Father's Day!

My special gift idea for Dad's 1st Father's Day, designed with love by myself, available on Zazzle:


Unique New Dad Gifts

Daddy And Me Picture Frame

Give the new dad a special daddy & me picture frame to place at his office. Every dad loves to show off his baby and Family to coworkers and clients. Of course dad can also hang this up at home! Daddy & me photo frames are available in all sorts of styles and materials and with different messages engraved such as "Daddy & Me", "I love Daddy", "Daddy's Girl", etc. Have the engraving personalized and the frame makes a great and timeless new dad gift! 

Also great: a "mom + dad = me" picture frame. This is the ideal gift from mummy and baby for daddy, for example on Father's Day.

New Dad Gag Gift : Daddy Diaper Changing Toolbox

Want a gag gift for the new dad? Then I recommend a diaper changing toolbox with lots of fun and functional baby stuff! There are various diaper changing toolboxes around and they contain "useful" things for the dad to be such as:

* a mask with a toxic fume filter, so dad can breathe more easily  
* goggles - for better eye protection
* tongs - for easy removal of the diaper
* ear/ nose plugs - might come in handy...
* baby wipes - well, even mommy needs these when changing a diaper
* a bio hazard bag and rubber gloves - straight from the tongs into the bag will be the best thing to do with baby's diaper

Daddy Diaper Bag

A daddy diaper bag is such a classic new dad gift. Dad will probably hate to carry mommy's hip-style diaper bag with that eye-catching pattern... And maybe even in pink!?

Modern daddy needs something cool and man-like! A dad diaper bag is an awesome gift idea and especially designed and styled for men. A messenger bag is cool for a dad and a backpack, too. Daddy will surely be proud to have his own bag for going out with baby.



New Dad Travel Mug / Beer Glas

Depending on the new dad's personal liking, either get him a colorful dad mug or a funny "dad evolution" mug for his daily coffee at home or at work. A travel mug might be a great idea, too. Also cute: a customized beer glass.

Parenting Books For Dad's To Be And New Dads

Parenting books or novels about fatherhood are a great idea, too. Pregnancy, labour, infants and parenting are all virgin territory for dad? Then it's about time to learn about at least the "theoretical part" of it! Great new dad books are: 

- Be Prepared: A Practical Handbook for New Dads (paperback book) by Gary Greenberg

- The New Dad's Survival Guide: Man-to-Man Advice for First-Time Fathers by Scott Mactavish

- The Caveman's Pregnancy Companion: A Survival Guide for Expectant Fathers by David Port, John Ralston and Gideon Kendall

- The Joy of Fatherhood: The First Twelve Months Expanded by Marcus Jacob Goldman

 Like father - like son.  



Smartphone For Video Recording & Filmmaking / Camera 

If dad has no camera or an outdated smartphone there's no better occasion to get him one with the latest technology so he can make great footage of the baby growing up. The pictures and videos of baby - for example his or her first little steps - will bring joy and fun for a lifetime. Also, once the baby is an adult she or he will also enjoy all these childhood memories together with the parents.

This is a really cool gift from mommy to daddy or from grandparents-to-be for their son.

Here you will find the latest (#ad) smartphone bestsellers and camera deals on amazon.
