Car Upgrade

With a precious bundle of joy on the way, it’s only natural for parents to want to find a vehicle that will accommodate their new family. If you have the extra cash, you can get the expecting father a car upgrade for Father’s Day. When looking for vehicles, ask him about his wants and needs as well as consider everything a growing family needs.

Parenting Book/Advice

Children are a whole new ball game. They are a joy to have around but are a handful. Most soon-to-be dads have no clue on how to raise or care for children. Give him a head start by giving him a parenting book or parenting advice for Father’s Day. While he may not initially like the gift, it will be extremely useful and helpful.

Comfy Clothes

Taking care of a baby is a lot of work. Plus, babies are known to make messes with their parents all the time. One of the easiest gifts to find a soon-to-be dad for Father’s Day is comfy clothes. Nothing beats taking care of the family while wearing a t-shirt, gym shorts, or sweatpants. Luckily, you can find these types of clothes in-store or online.

Skincare Products

While not all men like to take care of their skin, skincare products are great, especially since after having a baby, he will not necessarily have the same freedom or time to take care of his skin. Plus, the stress of taking care of a child can cause his skin to break out. We recommend gifting him a few lightweight moisturizers and sleeping packs to keep his skin fresh and rejuvenated.

Restaurant Gift Cards

Once their baby arrives, the new parents will not have much time or energy to cook a meal. Those first few weeks are especially a blur for fresh parents. To help them stay fed, while not having to release more energy, you can always gift that soon-to-be dad-in-your-life a restaurant gift card. Include some of their favorites as well as places they have never been. Another great alternative is food delivery gift cards as well.

Dad Pack

If you like to create gift baskets or add humor to your gifts, a dad pack would be a great gift for a soon-to-be dad. You literally can put whatever you want in a dad pack — food, books, video games, energy drinks, gum, etc. Anything that would make dad's life easier is what you want to get.

By following this guide, you can find the perfect gift for the soon-to-be dad in your life. Just remember to give him something from the heart.
