Click through, and get inspired!

Scratch Map

Oh, the places your little family will go . . . someday! Uncommon Goods' Scratch Map [1] ($20) is a great way to kick off a lifetime of adventure, as it looks cool hanging as is and only becomes better as you document your journeys.

Dad's Playbook

Made For Jake Custom Silhouette

Let the new dad showcase his lil guy or girl in style with a custom silhouette [3] ($25-$40).

iPhone Valet

His world may have just been turned upside down (in the best way possible), but that doesn't mean his stuff has to follow suit. A cool iPhone Valet [4] ($30) that also holds Dad's wallet means he'll always have a grip on his essentials.

Rules For My Unborn Son

Based on the popular Tumblr of the same name [5], Rules For My Unborn Son [6] ($12, originally $16) is a hilarious and heartwarming collection of rules, life lessons, and observations for the dad-to-be, with everything from "It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit" to "Never underestimate the power of taking out the trash without being asked." So true!

Moby Wrap MLB Edition

Dad can sport his baseball allegiance on his chest while wearing his baby now that Moby has introduced its MLB Edition Wrap [7] ($50). One of the most comfortable baby wraps out there, the MLB edition is available in 24 of the league's 30 team logos.

Mouth Raise the Bar Gift Set

With the arrival of his new best bud, dad's had to cut back big time on nights out with his original crew. Add a sophisticated twist to those every-three-hour feedings with the Raise the Bar [8] ($140) gift set of artisanal liquors, carefully curated by Mouth.

Nespresso Espresso Maker

A sleek espresso maker [9] ($299) will make those first sleepless nights a lot more manageable.
