Looking for Father’s Day gifts for expecting Dads?
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 expecting dads
1. A designer Nordgreen watch
Make Dad feel special and gift him one of these beautiful yet simplistic watches! Plus psst…suprise! I plan on getting my husband one of these watches for Father’s day coming up!
2. A course that teaches your partner on how to support you during labor!
SupportingHer is an online class that teaches tips, techniques and actionable skills to help you take care of your partner and yourself during labor and birth.
The course is tailored JUST for your partner, and is the best gift idea because it benefits the both of you! Use code MLN2019 to save 20%!
3. 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! It’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.
6. 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!) 📸
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? 🤣
10. A man crate
Okay, I have to admit, this company is hilarious. They have a TON of different themed man crates to choose from!
You can pick the one that best fits your husband’s personality and interest! Although the coffee lovers crate might be good for a new dad to be who’s about to be a WHOLE lot more tired 😉
11. A one handed bottle opener
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 intents and purposes…if that dad-to-be of yours is a beer lover (like mine), I’m sure he would love the gift of autonomy.
12. A “dad” shirt
What Dad doesn’t love a clever graphic tee? Gotta love the beard one though…
13. 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.
What will you choose for a first father’s day gift?
That concludes the list! What did you get your baby daddy for his first Father’s Day? We’d love to hear more ideas in the comments!
Happy Shopping! 🙂
