Gifts for New Dads – at the Hospital
Why give a gift at the hospital? The new dad would have just gone through one of the most amazing things in their life. They are on a high and let’s be honest, can use all the help they can get as they start this new journey in their family life.
A lot of people will bring gifts for the baby, but it’s nice to acknowledge the parents as well. And the new dad may not be top of mind, so will appreciate you thinking about him too.

Things to consider:
- Don’t bring anything too bulky – the new parents will have a lot to bring home from the hospital, don’t load them up and make them do too many trips
- If you are going to bring food, bring something healthy and easy to prepare
- Keep it simple. You don’t need anything extravagant to say congratulations.

The Splurge – iRobot Roomba
Ok, this one goes against my advice above about giving something small to make a car trip easier, BUT roomba’s are lifesavers when you’re a new parent. No one wants to vacuum when you could be cuddling your new baby. This robot vacuum will save the new dad time and will help keep the house in order during those hectic first months into the messy toddler years.
