30 Best New Dad Gifts of 2023
Being one of the best dads today is to be a kind-of modern-day renaissance man who knows how to quickly (and cleanly) change a diaper, sings along with both old-school jams and the newest hits, understands soccer’s offside rule, can and will gladly cook for carnivores and vegans alike, takes proper care of his skin, bakes bread, loves a good workout, builds furniture without much fuss, will never turn down a bubble bath and isn’t ashamed to admit he’s lost and needs directions.
Not only is a leveled-up dad a benefit to his family, and society in general, but it also means that the best gifts for new dads are now far easier and more fun to find, because the choices are virtually limitless — from a crackling candle to small batch coffee, and hi-tech gear to a hot sauce making kit.
The brand-new dad in your life will probably say that
gifts for dads aren’t necessary and that the baby is the best gift of all. He’s not lying, but still, it’s nice to give him something useful, fun and beautiful to make his life smell, taste, function and be just plain better. With that in mind, here are some amazing gifts for any awesome new dad, most under $50, with many far more affordable than that.
