Maybe tickets to a concert or sporting event in a few months along with someone who’s willing to watch your little one that you both trust. You’re giving him a date night and you both something to look forward to in a few months when you feel ready to go out on the town. You also don’t have to go anywhere to buy the tickets.

1.The Haynes Dad Manual- it is styled in the manner of the Haynes car repair books.


2. You could get him a blank journal or photograph album , glue in envelopes like they do for the guestbooks where guests write notes to the couple , insert a blank sheet of paper into each envelope.The idea is that every year on his child’s birthday, he write a letter to them . He gives it to his son or daughter on the eve of their wedding, or other appropriate occasion.

3. Get one of the pics of him with the new baby  printed on canvas to hang on the wall.

4. A diaper bag for men from diaperdude.


 5. Wine from this year’s vintage to put down to drink with his son when he is of age or on an important occasion. You might  have to give him an IOU for this as 2012 wine won’t be available for a while.

Have you heard of wine ceremonies for weddings, where the couple boxes up a bottle of wine with a letter, to be opened on an anniversary?  What about getting something like that, only making it apply to the anniversary of your son’s birth?  Although it’s kind of a gift for your son as well…

Or wine accessories, like a cool aerator or wine opener?

You should try browsing around ThinkGeek.com. They have a lot of neat and “unusual” gifts (Even gamer gifts), and they have baby friendly/baby supportive stuff, too. Dunno if it floats your boat, but ThinkGeek is my 100% go-to store for gifts.

Another idea is to get one of your friends or family members booked ahead of time to watch your baby for a few hours to go someplace and be together just the two of you- even just an old school ice cream and roller skating date night. With a new born quality time with just you to will be priceless. 

As the present you give him the day and time and a description of what you will in a certificate format.
