With the Holiday season upon us you may be wondering what to get the new dad in your life. Look no further….here is my collection of the perfect gifts to get your special man. Being a new parent, whether you are the mom or dad is a tricky job and dads often get forgotten about. Here is my 2016 gift guide for new dads =)
Being a dad is probably one of the toughest coaching jobs around so set him up for success with this great book =)
$8.99 // Amazon.com
The Chromecast allows you to wirelessly stream movies, TV shows, Music, etc., from any device to your Television. It’s awesome! Daniel and I got one and we use it all the time for listening to music and watching Netflix. Any new dad is sure to love this awesome gift!
$35.00 // bestbuy.com
This is a seriously awesome gift. The Nest Cam is a super versatile camera that can be used as a baby cam or a general security camera! It has super easy set up and can be streamed to any device. It also has a built-in speaker and microphone that allows for two way talk. This means you can talk to your baby, or dog, or whoever from anywhere!
$181.00 // Amazon.com
Another great (and slightly cheaper) camera option is the Logitech Circle. It has many of the same features as the Nest Cam for a slightly smaller price tag. We actually have the Logitech Circle White set up right next to Fé’s bed so I can always check on her directly from my phone!
For new parents, it may be hard to stick to your usual daily hygiene schedules when your whole world has been flipped upside down. I know for me and Daniel, we had to remind each other to do the simplest things like shower or even brush our teeth! When you have been awake since 4am and your baby won’t stop crying, brushing your teeth may be that last thing on your mind. But having a new baby is no reason to slack on basic personal hygiene. Get your man (and maybe yourself) this AMAZING toothbrush from Oral-B with 6 different cleaning modes to get your teeth sparkly clean. It also comes with bluetooth so you can connect your toothbrush to your phone to get information on your daily brush habits, and get helpful oral hygiene tips from Oral B!
$110.00 // Amazon.com
For a slightly cheaper option try the Oral-B Pro 3000. This toothbrush has 3 settings to get your pearly whites just as clean as the Oral-B Pro 7000 for slightly cheaper. Daniel and I actually bought these toothbrushes right after Fé was born (we got them at a Black Friday sale here in Holland…I didn’t even know they did Black Friday over here!).
$68.00 // Amazon.com
5. Happy Socks
I love getting socks for Christmas! They are also one of my go-to gifts for Daniel every year =) Your man will LOVE these socks that come in crazy bright colors and patterns. After all, they are called Happy Socks for a reason 😉
$45.00 (4-pack) // Amazon.com
When you or your man are in a daze after getting a mere 3 hours of sleep, it may be easy to misplace your phones. Trust me, this happens multiple times a day in our household! The CUBE allows you to call your phone from anywhere by pressing a single button. Attach the CUBE to your keys or anything so you always have a way of finding your phone quickly and easily!
$70.00 (4-pack) // Amazon.com
The Fire TV allows you to stream anything to your HDTV! Get Netflix, HBO, Hulu or anything else you may want to watch =) With Sling TV your man can have access to all of his favorite sports! The Fire TV also has a voice command option so you can just say “watch Breaking Bad” and Netflix will pop up and start playing your current episode. Perfect for all those late night feedings when the remote is just a little too far away and you don’t want to wake your baby, whom you just got to sleep!
$89.99 // Amazon.com
If your man is a big beer fan he will love this gift. With a new baby around sometimes he may just need to relax and unwind, what better way to do this then with a nice cold beer! With a Beer of the Month Club subscription he will get 12 unique micro-brewed beers every month!
$27.95 per month // beermonthclub.com
9. HP Envy 4520 Photo Printer
Make printing out all your baby photos super easy with this awesome photo printer. Before Fé came along I didn’t feel the need to print out many photos. Now that she is here I find myself printing out a TON of photos to save in our baby book, put in picture frames, and to give out to EVERYBODY (I hope it’s not annoying!) This photo printer also allows you to print out photos directly from your smartphone or tablet!
$49.99 // Amazon.com
Get your new dad a high quality pair of slippers to keep his feet warm during all of those late nights with your little one!
$49.95 // Amazon.com
11. Keurig Coffee Machine
I LOVE my Keurig Single Cup Coffee Maker! It makes my morning coffee so easy. With just the push of a button you have a cup of perfectly brewed coffee =) Any new dad will love the convenience of making a quick single cup of coffee whenever those late night feedings have your man’s (or your own) eyes drooping. Be sure to grab a box of Starbucks Holiday Blend K-cups (my favorite) to celebrate the holiday season!
$139.00 // Amazon.com
Daniel works from home and it can be pretty hard for him to work when little Fé is screaming and crying. These wireless noise cancelling headphones are perfect for when you guy just needs to zone out. These are quite a splurge so for a cheaper option look at these Cowin Noise Cancelling Headphones.
If your man isn’t into the beard trend get him this waterproof razor. Again, when it comes to personal hygiene as a new parent, efficiency is key and this razor will make shaving super fast and easy =)
$39.81 // Amazon.com
14. World’s Greatest Dad Mug
Every dad needs a great dad mug to go with their late night (or very early morning) coffee =)
$14.99 // Amazon.com
15. Makita Drill Set
Setting up your house for you expanding family will require a great set of tools. Get your man this awesome Makita drill kit to set him up for success! This will also help him with that treehouse he will probably be making in the future. Daniel LOVES this drill and we used it for EVERYTHING when we first moved into our new place last year =)
$125.00 // Amazon.com
I hope this Holiday Gift guide helps with some of your holiday shopping! Happy Holiday Season =)
