75 Gifts for New Dads That Are Total Game-Changers
From luxurious self-care to practical baby gear.
Cigars may be tradition, but the best gifts for new dads go far beyond that time-honored practice. As with gifts for new moms, a freshly minted father can benefit from a range of comforting and useful items. Self-care and pampering items, from the best bath gift sets to comfortable leisurewear and cozy bedding, will help rejuvenate him during the hospital stay and the first few weeks of his baby's life. On the more indulgent end of the spectrum, a gift to satisfy his personal interests shows thoughtfulness, like at-home fitness equipment or a new sound system (to play lullabies, of course).
In lieu of a food train, go the modern route with a food delivery gift card or kitchen gadget that allows him to whip up meals (and coffee!) in a snap. But of course, that precious bundle is the new focus, making top-of-the-line baby gear and gift ideas for newborns thoughtful presents for Dad, too. While a fun toy or too-cute daddy-and-me moment feels joyous to give, you may be a practical gift-giver, wherein diapers, onesies, and swaddles never fail.
And because those first few months fly by, as everyone says, it doesn't hurt to prep new dads with practical baby gifts beyond the newborn stage. Think jogging strollers and hiking packs for the adventurous types, and first-bites essentials or a playmat to prepare him for life with a growing little one. Keep scrolling for 75 outstanding gifts for new dads, from useful baby gear to luxurious self-care he'll more than appreciate.
