a baby shower gift for the new #dad !

Have you had your own or attended baby showers where the new dad was given gifts? What do you think would be good gifts for a new or expecting dad?
I tried to put up a list of some good items to give to an expecting dad. Please feel free to comment with your thoughts and ideas.

Here are some gift ideas for the new and expecting dads :
1. Pregnancy Book for Dads (so they know what the heck they have gotten themselves and their partners into!!) 🙂
2. Starbucks Gift Cards (they need more caffeine to stay awake and change all those diapers at night, no?!!)
3. Headphones (to use when they are busy with work and baby is crying!!)
4. Restaurant Gift Cards (for the non chef dads to bring meals home when mommy is too busy attending baby!!)
5. A dude diaper bag
6. Photo frames (for the office)
7. Phone Numbers of Nannies or Babysitting Vouchers (so he can plan some dates with his wife/partner!!)

What else would you add to this list?

Expecting Mommy Tip of the Day #5

Combine your gift registries online. You can open as many registries you want in different stores and link them all into one page and forward this page to your friends and family. This way you do not have to remember 20 different registries and wonder what all you have registered for. My sweet friend Sa found this idea online and combined all my registries before sending out my baby shower invitation. I think it was an awesome idea!

Here are a few websites that can help you combine your registries.

Amazon.com has a universal registry button. I have not used it but according to the site you can add items from different websites on your Amazon registry through their universal registry button.

Hope this tip helps you and your guests!
