Congrats! You’re a new dad, or know a new dad, and are searching for the perfect gift. New dads (like new moms) need all the help they can get. We pulled together a few items to help you spend more time with your little ones, and spend less time worrying about where to put everything.
With a newborn, days can pass slower than molasses or faster than the blink of an eye. One thing to help that conundrum: a handsome watch. Dad needs one to keep track of feedings, changing and all the other fun child-dad bonding moments that first years bring. This innovative watch from Zodiac will help him look good, plus bath time isn’t a worry thanks to its 5ATM water-resistance rating. Even new dads deserve something that says you’re special, and this watch says all that and more.
