Gifts for the Dad-to-be?

Hi ladies,


I guess you gals in the States are pretty focused on Thanksgiving right now, but I'm sitting here thinking about Christmas gift-giving:). I have a couple ideas for DH, but nothing brilliant has come to mind.


I was just wondering if anyone has interesting gift ideas for the dadddy-to-be in your life? Something about fatherhood? Or maybe something for him to enjoy before the baby comes?


I'm sure there are a lot of great ideas out there!

With our first baby I gave DH a book specialy for Dad's, all about the first year. It talked about what baby would be able to do at different ages & had suggestions for play things with baby. He loved it! I don't recall what it was, but i'm sure you can find something like that out there.


As for something to enjoy before baby comes, does he have some guy friends that he would enjoy having a guy thing with? Something like; a

Hey Cassie! I've been thinking about Christmas gifts for DH recently too. I think, because it will be our last Christmas without a little one, I am going to get him gifts that are all about him (next Christmas we can go hog-wild with the baby stuff! LOL).

That being said, I haven't really been able to come up with many ideas - especially since we set a limit this year ($50). He absolutely LOVES puzzles, so I'll probably get him one, but other than that I'm not sure.

Does your DH have any hobbies or interests that are just his own? Maybe get him something to do with that? Something that shows you appreciate him not just as a father to your new baby, but as the man you fell in love with ;) Maybe a coupon book? LOL That sounds lame, but my DH has been begging me to give him one for a while!

I bought DH some books when we got PG but nothing really since then that is father related. For Christmas, Im buying him a Montreal Canadiens beer fridge.

Hmmm...I like the idea of a organizing some kind of "guys night" for him. Maybe a coupon to organize and host a hockey night party for him and his friends one night during the Olympics. There's definitely the seed of an idea there. Thanks, ladies:).

I am also thinking of perhaps a book...Ash has highly recommended "The Expectant Father" and I also like Noel's suggestion of a book that talks about how he can play with the baby, understand how he/she is developing, etc.

Thanks again!

PS Ruby, I'm sure that bar fridge will be a hit:).
