father’s day gift guide: new dad

fathersdaypic

Father’s Day is less than 2 weeks away, and it’s a big one for our little family because it’s my hubby’s first!  I won’t tell exactly what I got him yet just yet (in case he reads this), but here are some of my top picks!

Tree and Acorn outfit set.  The acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree!  I love this outfit set because the colors are neutral and each design is cute on its own.

Classic Messenger Bag.  My guy already has a murse aka european carryall that he totes around fairly regularly, and Father’s Day is a solid excuse to get him an upgrade.  And a couple weeks ago I turned his murse into a ‘daddy tote’ with the ToteSavvy– because why should moms have all the fun toting around a heavy diaper bag? 😉

I Heart Daddy pacifiers.  We’ve got both the ‘Mommy’ and ‘Daddy’ editions of these pacifiers and they definitely warm your heart.

Digital photo frame.  A digital frame for the office cubical is a great way for a new dad to show off all of the pics ya’ll have been taking.  There are sooo many options these days too– digital frames come in a wide variety of sizes and prices.

ToteSavvy.  I bought two of the full size ToteSavvy, one for myself and one for the hubs.  It turns any bag into a diaper bag.  I got one for my guy’s messenger bag and it’s perfect!

Papa Bear mug.  We live in California, so we see this bear silhouette all over the place – but the ‘papa bear‘ makes it absolutely adorable.

Father’s Day Gift onesie.  What better way to subtly remind him that you did all the work for 9+ months?  LOL

Baby Daddy tee.  Who’s your baby daddy?  This guy.

Urban Shoulder Bag.  Another take on the messenger bag for the urban hip and sporty guys.

Personalized book.  A fun book to add to the bedtime story rotation.

1. Stance Socks. My husband loves their socks. Fun, but manly, colors and patterns to go with everything. Plus, I love to steal them.

2. Garmin Fenix 3. For the athlete in your life- this watch does it all. Swim tracking, biking, and running.

3. Apple TV. We have one and love it. Makes it so easy to hook our phones up to the tv, or just watch our favorite shows.

4. Magazine Subscriptions. I love giving magazine subscriptions. I order the subscription, buy one of the magazines and attach it to something that is relevant to it. Example: order Runners World Magazine and roll it up inside a new pair of shoes!

5. Jcrew Flannel. I don’t dare usually try and buy my husband clothes- he is way too picky; but, these are alway a winner. So, every year he gets a few of these under the tree.

6. UE Boom 2 Bluetooth Speaker. We love blasting music around the house or taking it with us to a family function. This is a great one for the quality and price.

7. Apple iPhone 7 Battery Case. For the man who works from his phone 247, this battery case will help keep him from having a panic attack when his phone drops to the dreaded red zone.

8. Wireless Headphones. No guy likes wires everywhere- especially when working out.

9. Jack Black Skin Care. A classic and there is a reason for it. Men love their products.

10. Amazon Dot. We don’t have one of these, but I am going to have to change that!

11. Beer Clubs. If your guy likes/drinks beer or scotch, then give a ‘club’ gift where they send new ones for him to try every month!

12. Tile. I am sick of looking for my man’s keys every time he blames me for losing them hah So, attach this to them and you will never lose them again!
