Gifts for the New Dad

June 13, 2011

Father’s Day is less than a week away, and for those first time parents it’s an extra-special day. Since we’re featuring gift ideas for of all kinds of fathers as we count down to Dad’s Day, we’re glad to share our top three gifts to help make the new daddy’s duties a little easier while he’s heating bottles, changing diapers and buttoning Babysuits™.

The newest dad in the UncommonGoods family, our Chief Technology Officer Casey, took a moment to tell us about his experience becoming a proud papa:

“Becoming a father three weeks ago to my little girl, Elle, was the greatest change in my adult life. To see that I created a life I am responsible for has really opened my eyes to another world,” he said. “I’m very happy I read several great books ahead of time as it has allowed me to understand her needs, so most of the time it is a lot of fun watching her be curious and discover the world. I am very excited to watch her grow and have a couple more!”

From baby books to diaper cream, here are our favorites.

Recycled Dad-to-Be Set

Dad to Be

This set includes the Diaper Dude bag (a great gift for the dad who doesn’t want to tote around an old-fashioned baby blue or pastel pink diaper bag), a “Produced Locally” infant Babysuit™ and the Baby Owner’s Manual, a new parent friendly guide complete with baby operating instructions, trouble-shooting tips and advice on first-year maintenance.

Parenting Flashcards


A new dad can sound like an old pro in no time with this set of 50 flashcards. Each card features a parenting word and its definition, part of speech and a sentence using the word in context. The quirky illustrations help make learning the vocabulary of parenthood feel like a playdate with the English language.

Baby Care Kit

This compact and easy-to-carry pack makes dad’s load a little lighter on-the-go. Filled with baby care essentials including organic diaper cream, body oil, body milk, baby wash and balm, the Baby Care Kit helps take the guesswork out of packing the diaper bag.
