Two Gifts Ideas for New and Expectant Dads from DaddyScrubs

daddyscrubs.comFinding a gift for a new dad this holiday season is now easier than ever when you shop at This site has a great selection of gift sets for Dads, both new and experienced! Since my son recently became a father, I knew that I wanted to be able to gift him with something that he would be able to enjoy with his new daughter.

For the Book Lover

The Bag O’ Books by DaddyScrubs caught my eye immediately. I am a huge book lover and I want my granddaughter to be one as well! What better way to encourage this than to have her daddy read to her from the beginning?

This gift set includes seven popular baby and children’s books in total. I think they cover a wide age range as well so this gift will last for quite a while. 

The seven books in the gift set are:

  • I Love You, Daddy! by Edie Evans (Little Golden Book)
  • What Daddy Bear Loves by Paige Nickell (Board Book)
  • What Daddy Duck Loves by Paige Nickell (Board Book)
  • The Daddy Book by Todd Parr
  • Just Me and My Dad by Mercer Mayer
  • Clifford’s Day Wtih Dad by Norman Bridwell
  • The New Dad’s Survival Guide by Scott Mactavish

I really like that there is a new dad survival guide, it will certainly come in handy. I read a little bit of it and it seems like it gives great advice in a humorous way — perfect for guys!

All of the books come packed in a very nice “daddy trunk bag.” Made of 100% cotton canvas, this ECO Bag is quite large and roomy. There is even an inside pocket. It will be a nice way for Dad to keep track of the little one’s books. Or, even a nice tote for library visits with dad when baby is older! The front proudly claims “I’m The Daddy!” — Love it!

My son was really excited about receiving this bag full of books for his daughter! I can’t wait to fill up her shelves even more!

For the Expectant Dad

If you would like to give Dad something special for the trip to the hospital, this Certified New Dad gift set might be just the thing. 

Dads can get super nervous about the arrival of their new little one! Giving them a gift to help them express their excitement can be a very caring gesture. This expectant dad gift set has several items to let dad tell the world how proud he is!

With this gift, Dad will receive a nice t-shirt that proudly proclaims his new status as a “Certified New Dad.” Having the date in the center of the attractive logo on the back of the shirt creates a great keepsake.

Unfortunately I forgot to state which size t-shirt I would like for my son so the one we received is too large for him. I would say though that the t-shirt is very well made and high quality. Also, sizes do run true so order accordingly.

Besides the t-shirt, there is also a pocket protector filled with 4 “I’m The Daddy” pens and a photo frame magnet. Our gift set also included two “I’m the Daddy” rubber bracelets, one blue and one pink.

My son hasn’t taken the pink one off since I gifted the set to him!
