Welcoming a new baby into the family is an exciting time for couples. With moms carrying the baby, they seem to get a lot of attention and often dads may become an afterthought. When thinking of gifts for a baby shower, don’t forget that there’s a daddy-to-be as well!
Becoming a new dad is a precious moment, but it comes with new responsibilities as well. While they may not carry the baby for nine months and go through major bodily changes, dads still have a vital role to play. From looking after their wife, taking care of their newborn baby and possibly learning to juggle between caring for his growing family and his work commitments, a first time dad definitely has his hands full in a different sort of way!
The next time you’re looking for a baby shower gift or putting together a baby shower gift registry, spare some thought for the new dad, celebrating and congratulating him on his little bundle of joy too. To get you started, here are some suggestions of meaningful, practical and unique gifts for new dads.
Grab a t-shirt for the dad-to-be that he can wear in the hospital or even for the first photoshoot if there’s one planned!
