#2: Lovevery The Play Gym

When you have a new baby, all you want to do is play with them. In fact, spending quality bonding time with your little one is one of the many joys of parenthood. Plus, playtime is beneficial to babies, too, since it:1

  • Helps your baby’s brain make new connections
  • Teaches your baby about how objects work
  • Lets your tot explore and acquire skills
  • Provides your baby with coping skills to handle stress

This Father’s Day, consider combining playtime benefits with memory-making by gifting the new dad in your life the Lovevery Play Gym. From the dangling toys to the baby-safe teethables, this play gym has everything babies need to develop their brain and fine motor skills.

Plus, it will ensure Dad and Baby make memories that will last a lifetime—and that’s truly a priceless gift.

#3: The DockATot Portable Changing Mat

The new father in your life will learn pretty quickly that diaper duty is a 24/7 job. Fortunately, with a portable changing mat, Dad can take his diaper changing skills on the road without having to worry about whether the public restrooms available will have changing tables of their own.

The DockATot Clutch Changer is small enough to fit into any diaper bag or backpack, but stylish enough to carry on its own. It even features pockets and pouches to hold all of those new dad must-haves, like wet wipes, snacks, and pacifiers.

Functional and fashionable? That gets our new dad's stamp of approval.

#4: Llama Soft Book

Do you look back fondly on your memories of storytime with dad before he tucked you into bed at night? Let the new dad in your life pass this same tradition on to his baby by gifting him our Llama Soft Book. You can bundle these along with the best toys for baby development and other baby books as well.

It’s the perfect first book for Baby and Dad because:

It’s interactive – Dad can take storytime to the next level with this interactive book. The soft texture means Baby can play with this book as Dad reads it. Not to mention, the squeaky toy, baby-safe mirror, and crinkly textures will keep Baby’s brain active and engaged throughout the entire story.

It’s washable – This book is in it for the long haul. Even if Baby thinks the book is more fun to eat than it is to read, Dad can easily wash the fabric and have it looking as good as new in no time.

#5: Calisson Sophie So'pure Bath Toy

Looking for fun Father’s Day gift ideas? Nothing says joy and delight like splashing around in the sink with your new baby. But if the new dad in your life wants to make baby bath time even more enjoyable, consider gifting him the Calisson Sophie So'pure Bath Toy.
