The Ultimate Gift Guide for New Dads

Celebrating the Arrival of a new child

Becoming a new dad is an incredible milestone that deserves to be celebrated! We get many grandparents and siblings stopping into our shop asking for gift ideas to celebrate the new father. And looking around, this can be tough - so much of what 's marketed towards celebrating a new baby is aimed at the mother.

But, whether you're looking to congratulate a friend, family member, or co-worker on their impending fatherhood journey, we've compiled a comprehensive gift guide to help you find the perfect present. From practical essentials to sentimental keepsakes, these thoughtful gifts will not only make the new dad's life easier but also show your support and excitement during this joyous time.

Parenting Books

Help the new dad gain confidence and knowledge by gifting informative parenting books. Look for titles that provide guidance on fatherhood, practical parenting tips, or humorous accounts of raising children. Some of these titles are super serious, while others provide a little git of a joke or ode to their next journey in life. This gift will not only equip the new dad with valuable insights but also provide a source of support and reassurance.

Not only will these gifts be absolutely adorable, but they will also create priceless photo opportunities, capturing the joy and love shared between father and child.

Personalized Keepsakes

Akin to the above, discovering personalized keepsakes of fatherhood is a great gift for new dads. These sentimental gifts can be treasured for years ahead, and can be engraved keychains, photo frames, or a personalized mug.

We recommend that you check out Homework in Prince George, or for custom engraving Van Horlicks.

Another wonderful idea, is a visit to Tiny Beats in Prince George for a private ultrasound appointment to see the new baby. Book an appointment or gift a session, along with a heart beat bear to share in the early moments of a new baby.
