This Father’s Day is a special one. It is the first time that your man has had his favorite little person in his life for Father’s Day so he deserves to be spoiled a bit.
By this point, Dad has realized that all of his time is no longer his own. He has begun to figure out how to balance his new lifestyle and sleep schedule between his previous “cool” self and his new fatherly one. Certain things become less important (the Call of Duty release) while others suddenly are at the forefront, like naps and entertaining the little one.
I love the idea of giving something meaningful and something that Dad has been missing out on lately. These are our top picks!
Some of the cool gifts for Dads

This security camera connects to Wi-Fi and can stream 1080p HD video to your phone 24/7.
Dad Bonus: Tech is cool and this is way cooler than the standard baby monitor. Buy from $198
RainBowl Motion Sensor Toilet NIght Light
Being a new parent means far less sleep. And if you’re up in the middle of the night, using the restroom during the “wee” hours of the morning is more likely. With this bowl, it’ll get a little easier to navigate to the toilet without turning on all the lights and disrupting baby’s sleep after he or she she’s been settled and put back into the bassinet.
Dad Bonus: No more running into the walls, stubbing his toes, or “missing” the bowl when he’s up for nighttime feedings or cuddles. Buy from $13
