When a new baby joins the family, friends and relatives shower the mother and child with gifts. However, husbands are just as excited for the arrival of a new baby and deserve gifts that celebrate their new status as a father. Choose from among several hilarious new dad gifts to help him cherish the addition to the family and his new responsibilities.
He might not feel so overwhelmed when you give him a gift book designed especially for new fathers. Reading stories, tips and tricks from other new dads as well as parenting experts will bring him humour and insight into the days to come. These books introduce new dads to baby behaviour and caregiving instructions to making the most of his relationship with the newcomer. Try "Caveman's Guide to Baby's First Year" by David Port, John Ralston and Brian Ralston; "Quarterback Dad: A Play by Play Guide to Tackling Your New Baby" by Bobby Mercer and Alison D. Schonwald; and "1001 Things it Means to Be a Dad" by Harry H. Harrison.
Let him display his new status as "Daddy" on a humorous T-shirt. You can personalise the shirt with a baby photo, or choose a preprinted shirt. Some clever new dad T-shirts include such humorous jokes as: "Look What I Did," "The Man Behind the Bump," "Real Men Change Diapers," "He Shoots, He Scores," "DADD: Dads Against Daughters Dating" and "The Man Behind the Belly: New Dad 2010."
Diaper Changing Kit
Perfect for new dads who are intimidated by changing diapers, the diaper changing tool belt or diaper changing apron may make things easier (see Resources). Both feature deep pockets stuffed with diaper wipes, a changing pad, a clothes pin for his nose, rubber gloves, goggles, ear plugs, some disposable diapers, rash ointment and even baby lotion. Most aprons come with a humorous phrase and graphic, such as "Daddy's Diaper Duty Apron" or "Real Men Change Diapers." If you don't buy a commercial one, it's easy to purchase the belt or apron plus accessories on your own for this funny gift.
