Stumped about what to get the new dad in your life this holiday season? From gear he can enjoy with baby to stuff he'll want to keep just for himself, we've found inspiring ideas for the favorite man in your life this year.
1. iBert Child Bicycle Safe-T-Seat
Turn dad's cruiser into a bicycle built for two. This cool seat puts a spin on the usual child bike seat—it's mounted up front, providing a better center of gravity and increased mobility for the rider.
2. B&O PLAY by Bang & Olufsen Beoplay P2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Much like your new baby, this speaker is teeny tiny but packs a big punch. It's super portable, splash-resistant, dust-resistant and is accessible with a quick shake or a tap.
3. VEER Cruiser
It's part stroller, part wagon, part head-turner and ALL AWESOME. It's a *major* splurge, but dad will 💜you forever for this all-terrain cruiser that doubles as a stroller and a wagon and seamlessly grows with your family from infant to toddlers and beyond.
4. Google Daydream View VR Headset
All new dads need an escape every now and then. This VR headset is affordable, high quality, and most importantly, really fun.
5. Hydro Flask Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle
Keep dad hydrated and looking cool. This water bottle is one of our faves for its simple, slip-free design, insulated functionality (keeps cold for 24 hours and hot for six), and interchangeable tops.
6. Ergobaby Omni 360 Carrier
You've carried baby around for nine months—now it's dad's turn. The custom fit options means this carrier will fit any body type, from petite to larger, and with multiple carry positions available, you'll be able to carry your little one from day one, no insert needed.
7. Trianium iPhone Battery Extender and Portable Charging Case
A new baby means lots and lots of photos, and lots and lots of photos mean a faster dying phone battery. This awesome case boasts a battery extender and portable charging capabilities, so you'll never miss the next photo-worthy moment.
8. Blue Bottle Coffee Subscription Service
Coffee. Really good coffee. Really good coffee filled with caffeine, friend to new parents everywhere. Delivered to your door. Yup.
9. Peg and Awl Waxed Canvas Bags
From duffels to diaper bags, these handmade bags are beautifully crafted and perfect for any stylish dad. We love the attention to detail like the leather straps and brass rivets, the durability of the waxed canvas, and the vintage look cool factor.

11. Adidas Iniki Runners
These retro sneakers will keep dad comfy while chasing after the newest addition. They're available in a few great colors and will definitely up his sneaker game.
12. Lululemon ABC Jogger
You'll have to look up what the "ABC" in these cool joggers stands for, but let's just say that certain, um, important parts will have lots of room to breathe here. We like them because they're super comfy—they're made from stretchy, sweat-wicking material—and they look great with just about anything.
