Tactical Baby Gear Daypack: This diaper bag will make any new dad look tacticool! Yes, my husband just taught me that word, and it’s apparently a thing! Dads no longer have to carry the purse diaper bags! They can have a tough-looking diaper bag that is durable and practical. This bag comes with a changing pad (drop zone), dump pouch (hah!), wipes case, and a tactical teddy.
Slippers: Whether the new dad is on paternity leave, becomes a stay at home dad, or just ends up spending more time at home due to the baby, these loafers will keep him feeling cozy, comfy, and warm.
Large Coolers: I gifted my husband the blue Titan cooler and I can’t tell you how much we use it! I think we have both benefited from it! 🙂 It’s so perfect for day trips, traveling, and even to pack the groceries on the way home. I love all the pockets and everything stays so cold! I also added a YETI option because everyone who has a YETI loves it. We personally do not have one, but the Titan is a great option that is a bit more affordable.
