Over the years, the number of products available to new fathers has greatly increased. Companies now offer choices that emphasis style, enhance function, set trends, and celebrate fatherhood. Below you will find gift ideas for new fathers that help increase bonding time, promote safety, and assist Dads in easing into the role of becoming a new parent:
Stylish Baby Carrier
Keeping a baby safe, close by and in comfort is a priority for parents when they’re out and about with their infant. The portability factor of baby carriers also helps create stronger bonds between parent and child. Baby carriers additionally allow men to conveniently keep an eye on their child while completing everyday tasks and chores, such as mowing the lawn. For a new father, a carrier can seem daunting at first, but to make the transition easier, perhaps you could gift one of the following trendy options: Baby K’tan Baby Carrier (shown), Sport ERGO Baby Carrier, and Phil and Teds Escape Baby Carrier.
Changing diapers isn’t just for the mommies and today, there are plenty of stylish options for new fathers to consider. For instance, the Building The Foundation Daddy Diaper Bag comes with seven convenient outside pockets and a small zipper pocket inside for storing toys and cell phone. The adjustable strap makes wearing it over the shoulder a breeze. The inscription “Daddy’s Little Project” on the front will bring a smile every time!
Cool Baby Mobile
If you’re shopping for a new father who’d rather not stare at pink bunnies and cows jumping over the moon, perhaps they’d enjoy a baby mobile geared towards the sports fan at heart. Sports usually incorporated into such a mobile include baseball, basketball, football, and soccer. For example, Bedtime Originals Super Sports Musical Mobile is made with dangling footballs and baseballs that stimulate a baby’s eye development. There are also team-specific mobiles, such as the New York Yankees Baseball Mobile by Distributoys that actually plays “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.” With a dangling baseball, a baby will also have four adorable characters wearing the team logo to keep him or her busy.
Babies grow fast! Give the new Dad a digital camera so he can take pictures of his baby from day one! The Nikon COOLPIX L830 Digital Camera with HD Video is a great choice! Another great one is Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 Digital Camera due to its quiet, fast, very responsive full resolution burst mode that will help the new Dad catch his baby’s smiles and fun moments in no time! A digital photo frame like NIX Digital Photo Frame with Motion Sensor would allow him to show off all the pictures of his baby while at work!
Personalized Baseball Mitt
If the new father in your life is now caring for a bouncing baby boy, commemorate the occasion with a personalized baseball mitt. Add the name, date, time of birth, and measurements to a newly bought leather baseball glove. Package the mitt neatly in a box to create a simple yet touching gesture for a new father.
