My husband’s most favorite day of the year is Father’s Day. Not his birthday, not the holidays. Father’s Day is his day. We shower moms-to-be with gifts, but sometimes dads get left out of the equation on their first Father’s Day!
Here are my top six gift ideas for new dads:
1. An Incredibundle
I love shopping for babies. However, as a DIY fanatic, I am missing a very important skill – I cannot wrap a gift for the life of me! I can make you whatever you want, but it won’t be presented very nicely when you receive it. If it weren’t for store bought gift bags and tissue paper, my family and friends would probably just receive their gifts in original packing.
I recently had the opportunity to try out Incredibundles for the first time when my lovely neighbors had a baby. I am a bit picky on baby items – I mean I have done this three times so I know what I like! I was excited to see that I could either create my own bundle or choose from a pre-designed bundle – all including options from my favorite brands.
One thing I really liked about my Incredibundles experience was that everything came beautifully wrapped in a reusable box. For only $50, I ordered a Sleep Sheep, Peek-a-Who, a puzzle, a teether, and a storage box. The gift came wrapped in tissue with a card tag. I did not even need to buy a card! Seriously, this company rocks.
I was even able to sneak in a little DIY onesie for the new babe – because, well, I am a DIY blogger – it just comes with the territory.
For Father’s Day, Incredibundles has curated several different gift options so that you don’t have to create your own bundle for the new dad in your life.
2. An alarm clock
True story. For the first 6 or so months of my oldest son’s life, each time he woke up my husband would look at me and ask if I was okay. It was as if in his sleepy stupor he forgot there was a baby in the room. He can still sleep through the baby’s morning wake up call, but an alarm clock around the typical go-time would have let me sleep in at least once in a while!
3. A soft blanket
For all of those late night and early snuggles on the couch, a great blanket can make a huge difference.
4. A baby carrier
My husband loved carrying around all of the boys in baby carriers. However, we found that what fit my tall frame was not always the most comfortable for him. Let dad find a carrier that makes it comfortable for him to wear his baby.
5. Specialized tech
Now, I can’t have the only husband who hooked the Go Pro to the baby to record his first steps from his perspective, right?
6. His own diaper bag
About a week into parenthood we realized that my adorable, designer diaper bag was NOT going to work as a bag for my husband. He ended up adopting a black crossover backpack as his diaper bag after his first public outing carrying my diaper “purse”. Incredibundles has a pre-packaged bundle that includes a utilitarian, masculine bag.
Here are the boys that inspire my husband!
