7 Father’s Day Gifts for Soon-To-Be-Dads
as mentioned in monday’s post about taking action around gun violence, here is the article i had planned! we are off to florida for a looong weekend to visit my in-laws and i am so excited!
in case you missed it, father’s day is fast approaching this coming sunday! now that i am married to an almost-baby-daddy, i thought i would put together some ideas for father’s day gifts for soon-to-be-dads! i realize this is a niche blog post but really you can give (most) of these gifts to any dad!
1) a couples’ massage
it is no secret that my favorite type of gift is one that i also benefit from so i am a big fan of this one. many places will offer a couples’ – simply be sure to tell them that one of you will be needing a prenatal massage!
2) a picture fame with an ultrasound picture in it!
apparently when you have a kid, your free time (and energy) flies out the window. this is a perfect gift to explore a favorite venue together – and chances are you get to participate too!
4) his own diaper bag filled with goodies
there are a ton of super cute diaper bags out there but many are on the side of a tad more feminine. this is a great one that either he could use or you could both share without all the flowers and designs (though he loves those, even better!) fill it with some basic baby essentials and shove a 6-pack of beer or a bottle of whiskey in there too!
5) the tile app (key finder)!
i have mentioned it before, but my husband is notorious for ‘misplacing’ his keys. i can only imagine how much worse this will be once we have a baby, especially when that baby becomes a toddler and thinks it is funny to hide things in the trash can. actually, i should probably get one for me too because it’s connected to your phone and can tell you exactly where your keys are!
because sometimes father’s day gifts are simply ‘bonus gifts.’ does anyone really need a one-handed bottle opener? probably not but i bet it’s super convenient when you are holding a baby with one hand to open that beer bottle!
7) a list of what will make him an incredible father
if you are pregnant and writing this in his father’s day card, be prepared to cry while writing it. i think it’s very powerful for you personally to think about and then write down all the reasons why you are excited to co-parent with him. i bet this card will be something he holds on to for quite a while!
what other ideas do you have for good father’s day gifts for an almost-dad or new dad?
