When a baby arrives they receive a gift from nearly everyone they will come to know and love. Even mums receive flowers and presents, and are the star of the show at their baby shower (rightly so). But what about Dad?

I recently met a lovely lady who had the sweetest, most thoughtful idea for her partner as a gift for when their baby arrives. It got me thinking and inspired me to write this post with ideas for the best gift for a new dad.

#1: Adventures for Daddy and Me

 I absolutely love this idea for a gift for a new dad. A set of ideas for dad and baby’s adventures. You could make these long term or short term, make your own or buy some to save yourself time. These ones are from notonthehighstreet.

Gift for a New Dad#2: New Dad Hamper

Another great gift from notonthehighstreet. This  New Dad Wellbeing Gift Hamper offers a bit of luxury and indulgence. It is £80 and includes:

  • Nourishing french green clay vegan soap
  • Organic lip balm
  • Dark chocolate slab by Land
  • Natural HuskeeCup travel mug
  • Jade Tips Green Tea
  • Ground Colombian coffee

All packed and gift wrapped in a wooden keepsake gift box, made in the U.K.

#3: Matching Swim Shorts

How cute are these matching dad and baby swim shorts?! You can find this set and other adorable prints at Tommy and Teddy.

#4 Gift for a New Dad: A Book to Share with Baby

I think that the most important job in parenting is to create memories and connections. Sharing a book is a great way to build bonds and spend together. Reading to babies from the beginning can help stimulate the brain and create connections for language development.

Gift for a new dad #5: Personalised Photo Keyring

What a lovely gift for a new dad. You could use a scan photo for this or wait until you’ve had your newborn photoshoot to make a real impact! I love these handmade leather ones from Pomchick.com and what a bargain at £16.95!

#6: Parenting Book

This book is brilliant for helping dads gain all the practical skills needed for parenting and is said to have been used by Prince William! If your looking for a no nonsense gift for a new dad, this is ideal! You can buy it at Waterstones for £10.99.

#7: Maternity Photographs

This is the gift I mentioned at the beginning of this blog post and it really touched my heart.

My client contacted me at 34 weeks pregnant looking to create something special for her husband. I booked her in for as soon as was possible and we created beautiful images of her and her bump, which she will gift him when the baby arrives. And to top it off as the best gift for a new dad, she has also booked a newborn shoot to capture precious memories of all three of them!
