There are some great gifts for dad to be out there. It is even easier if the gender of the future baby is known. With the new generation of more involved parents comes a new tradition of gifts for the expecting parent. After all, mom shouldn't have all the fun! Dad participated in that too.
For the man who is a runner or runner, a great gift idea would be a jogging stroller. Hey, let's face it, Mom wishes he had one too! She would help her if Dad took the baby for a jog so she could take a nap or do some housework in an instant.
Another new trend in gifts for the future dad is diaper bags for dad. Men don't like to carry those little pastel-colored bags. Give them the gift of a sturdy and manly bag. He is more likely to take the baby more with him if he doesn't have to carry around a fussy-looking bag! Along with that, maybe Dad would like a manly backpack carrier. They are very useful.
There are all kinds of novelty gifts like custom t-shirt with picture, hats, sweatshirts, coffee mugs, and the like. If all else fails and you just can't think of anything else that is suitable, these are great items to turn to. What new parent doesn't want to show off the wonderful event? He gets matching shirts for babies and dads to wear together or matching pajamas!
If dad is not hooked on new technology, there is no better time. Maybe a cell phone with a camera (if he doesn't already have one), a video camera, or a digital camera would make a great gift for the future dad. He may not have a photo printer. This would also be a great addition.
No matter what he decides as a gift, it will make his heart glad. He will make you feel more a part of this wonderful event in his life. After all, mom and baby tend to steal the show most of the time. It is good to let him know that he does not forget you and that his enthusiasm and anticipation are recognized as much as Moms.
