New dads deserve gifts, too! Show the new dad in your life how special he is with one of these unique gifts. My husband received a lot of these items from caring family members and he was thrilled. Especially with the manly diaper backpack – he was happy not to carry the floral diaper bag I had picked out. Happy shopping!

1. Father – Baby Matching Outfits

Father-baby outfits are always adorable, and entertaining. Cute sayings like “Copy” “Paste”, “Me” “Mini Me” or “Big Man” “Little Man” are guaranteed to bring a smile to a new dad’s face, and then to anyone who sees them wearing their shirts together.

2. Fun Dad Mug

Let dad show off his pride in being a new father with a touch of humor.  Guaranteed to be a hit because chances are he’s drinking a bit more coffee than he used to.

3. Instant Camera

Let dad capture all the adorable moments with the new baby. He can cover the fridge with cute images and share with friends and family. The Fujifilm Instax Mini camera is available for great low prices on Amazon.

4. Masculine Diaper Bag

Diaper bags don’t have to be big, pink, and covered in flowers. Get a new dad a messenger or backpack-style diaper bag and he’ll be able to carry everything baby needs.

5. Personalized Beer Mug

Not only does this mug show off his status as a dad, but it has a personalized detail. You can provide the baby’s birthdate so the mug will state the day he became a dad.

6. Starbucks Gift Card

Starbucks gift card? Nuff’ said. Giving a new dad the gift of Starbucks is guaranteed to bring out a smile. It’s the perfect antidote to those sleepless nights with a newborn in the house.

7. Netflix Gift Card

A new baby at home might mean more time in front of the tv, and there’s nothing wrong with that! Give dad the gift of loads of movies and Netflix originals with a Netflix gift card.

8. “Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada” Board Book

This entertaining little book is authored by Jimmy Fallon. New dad’s can bond with their baby while reading this and hopefully have success in making their baby’s first word “Dada”.

9. Amazon Gift Card

Really can’t decide what to buy for a new dad? An Amazon gift card is a gift everyone loves. Available in any denomination, you can’t go wrong!
