Father’s Day is right around the corner! I have to admit, I’m SUCH a slacker when it comes to a Father’s Day gift for my husband. I’ve always said, I’m really glad Mother’s Day comes FIRST….because my husband always knocks it outta the park with a super awesome gift, and it kicks my butt into gear to doing some research for HIS gift! #slacker….I KNOW!
Anyway, there are a TON of cute gifts out there for expectant dads! *Hopefully* he got you something super awesome for your first Mother’s Day, so he deserves something just as awesome in return! Let’s start the list! 🙂

Father’s day gifts for expectant dads
1. A hand drawn portrait of your house together
This was my gift to my husband on his first Father’s Day. He LOVED it. This is a popular gift for anniversaries, but it works just the same for a Father’s Day gift (especially his first!). I wrapped it and sold it off as “our house where we first became a family”. 😭😭😭 Makes me teary eyed just thinking of when he opened it! (You can get one custom made on Etsy!)

Dad’s Playbook : Wisdom for Fathers from the Greatest Coaches of All Time….This is a really cute book for any sport-loving dad out there. It’s a collection of motivational quotes by various old-time coaches and athletes, collected on the theory that coaches and Fathers aim to exhibit like traits. They motivate, mentor, discipline, love….sounds just like a DAD! t’s a very inexpensive buy from Amazon too, if you’re looking for a small gift!
Every Dad deserves to be informed and educated on what’s to come. I found that this book was the most realistic of the “dad pregnancy books” out there in terms of being helpful, and having a little humor mixed in! Also, a very cheap buy from Amazon.

4. A camera
What Dad wouldn’t want a brand new camera to take super cute baby pictures? If you’ve got the budget, I think this a SPECTACULAR idea. (If you’ve got a dad who’s into taking pics!) 📸
5. A sweet dad mug
Coffee, anyone? Dad’s going to be drinking a lot more coffee once baby makes his/her appearance. Why not drink from a super awesome mug? There are a ton of clever ones to choose from, but here are some of my faves…
Spoiler alert, I ordered this book for my husband as this year’s Father’s Day gift! There are so many MOMMY books out there, it’s so nice to see a DAD one! I know your dad-to-be will appreciate a sweet kiddo book as his first Father’s Day gift. One that will be read over and over!
Can you tell I like books? 🤣
8. A man crate
Okay, I have to admit, this company is hilarious. They have a TON of other MAN CRATES (seriously, there are over 50 to choose from), but for the sake of this article, I’m going to refer you to their NEW DAD TACTICAL BAG. It’s adorable, guys.
I’m pretty sure anyone who’s a fan of opening bottles with one hand, regardless of if you are a dad or not would freaking love this thing. BUT, for all intensive purposes…if that dad-to-be of yours is a beer lover (like mine), I’m sure he would love the gift of autonomy.
10. A “dad” shirt
What Dad doesn’t love a clever graphic tee? Gotta love the beard one though…
11. A card goes a long way
Yes it does! Especially for a FIRST Father’s day gift…sometimes a sweet card is all you need to let your baby daddy know he’s special.
That concludes the list! What did you get your baby daddy for his first Father’s Day?
Happy Shopping! 🙂
