Just before Francie Sugar was born my husband and I (and my very big bump) had dinner with some of our closest friends. All the girls brought something for me or our babe – from slabs of chocolate to the sweetest baby books but one friend bought a bottle of whiskey for my husband because he was the dad to be – I thought that was the sweetest thing. Once Francie Sugar was born, a similar thing happened: a friend came to the clinic with flowers for me, a blanket for Francie Sugar and coffee vouchers for the new new dad – isn’t that so thoughtful?
Here are some ideas for (nearly) new dads:
Coffee vouchers (I stole this idea from my friend) | Go the F**k to sleep by Adam Mansbach | Converse sneakers for dad and babe | A baby carrier – this one is from Stokke at Yummy Baby | Snacks (i.e. biltong), Woolworths | “I love my daddy” babygro, Spree | A comfy top, Country Road | Raising Girls/Raising Boys (which ever is appropriate) by Steve Biddulph | Craft beer, Yuppiechef
