Scroll down and get inspired!

Scratch Map

Oh, the places your little family will go . . . someday! Uncommon Goods' Scratch Map [1] ($29) 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.

Customized Dad Mug

Whether you're using this as a sweet gift to break the news or are giving him a memorable vessel for his morning coffee, this customized dad mug [2] ($16) will be the most meaningful cup in your cabinet.

Dad's Playbook

Compiled on the basis that dads and coaches strive to exhibit similar traits, Dad's Playbook [3] ($9) is a beautiful collection of more than 100 quotes on motivation, mentorship, discipline, and love — straight from the mouths of the greatest sports coaches of all time.

Diaper Bag Backpack

While Dad definitely needs a lot of gear for any outing with the little one, he might not be thrilled about the idea of carrying your diaper bag. Give him a more masculine option with Obersee Oslo's diaper bag backpack with detachable cooler [4] ($150).

Cordless Car and Boat Handheld Vacuum

Accidents happen, and for the dads who are protective of their cars, they can feel particularly painful. Don't let Dad — or his first baby, the car — suffer from messes with Dyson's V6 car and boat [5] cordless handheld vacuum ($240).

Freezable 18-Can Cooler

Make sure Dad has a way to keep his favorite beverages cool for all of these outdoor play dates and games in his future with PackIt's freezable 18-can cooler [6] ($30). This roomy, soft-sided cooler keeps drinks and snacks cold for up to 10 hours without any extra ice packs.

Made For Jake Custom Silhouette

Let the new dad showcase his lil guy or girl in style with a custom silhouette [7] ($30 and up).

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 [8] ($42) that also holds Dad's sunglasses and watches means he'll always have a grip on his essentials.

Grabopener One-Handed Bottle Opener

It's hard to open a beer when you're holding a baby! Let him indulge in a drink or two with ease with Kebo's one-handed bottle opener [9] ($16).

Rules For My Unborn Son

Based on the popular Tumblr of the same name [10], Rules For My Unborn Son [11] ($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!

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 [12] ($130) gift set of artisanal liquors, carefully curated by Mouth.

Nespresso Espresso Maker

A sleek espresso maker [13] ($155, originally $207) will make those first sleepless nights a lot more manageable.

A Family Photoshoot
