Gag Gift for a Father-to-Be


An expectant father becomes increasingly nervous and excited as his little one's due date looms. New parents need plenty of gear and support when preparing for a newborn. Although Mom will appreciate gifts of clothing and blankets, you may also wish to give a present to the new father. Purchase some helpful items with a comical twist to give the father-to-be a good chuckle.

Diaper Duty

  • Changing diapers is a job that new dads dread. Give him some supplies to make the job easier. Purchase a tool belt at your local hardware store. Fill the belt with a variety of useful items, such as diapers, wipes, powder, a pacifier, clean onesies, hand sanitizer, rash ointment and changing pads. Also include humorous items like rubber gloves, goggles, ear plugs, tongs, a rain poncho and a clothespin for Dad's nose. You can use a fisherman's tackle box instead of a tool belt or fill the pockets of a personalized apron.

Late Night Kit

  • Arm the father-to-be with a basket of items to make those late nights a little more bearable. Purchase a large bag of ground coffee and a mug emblazoned with "World's Greatest Dad" or "Cool Daddy." Have the mug personalized with his name or a funny phrase such as, "Behind every happy parent is a lot of coffee." Add a package of energy drinks, protein bars and other convenient snacks for a quick energy fix. Include a pair of earplugs for when it is Mom's turn on late-night duty.


  • Choose from a selection of humorous t-shirts for the new father. "The Man Behind the Bump," "I'm the Coach," "Where's Your Mommy?" or "Daddy Needs a Time Out" are just a few silly phrases that a new dad could proudly wear. Buy a "Sympathy Baby Bump" shirt with an arrow pointing toward Dad's tummy or a "Daddy at Work" shirt for the expectant father and a "Daddy's New Project" shirt for the baby.

Chip-In Bucket

  • Dad will have to pick up some of the household chores now that Mom will spend much of her time caring for a newborn. Purchase a large mop bucket and fill it with a mop, sponges, baby-friendly cleaning products, laundry detergent, dish soap and rags. Purchase convenient, quick meals like macaroni and cheese and TV dinners, or a cookbook to help Dad in his cooking efforts, such as "Dad's Own Cookbook: Everything Your Mother Never Taught You."
