Got an Answer?
When mine were at newborn stage, these are some of the things dad got: A canvas print of bubs and dad, perfume, new undies/boxer shorts, fishing rod, bunnings voucher (loves his tools), massage voucher, favourite footy team jersey with name printed, new wallet with photo of bub in the window part, personalised coffee mug, Just some ideas.
Btw congratulations mama! 3 days old super cute. Stay safe x
You buy whatever you want and spend as much as you want. I have bought my hubby anything and everything from a mug with photos of the kids and some choccies to $350 pair of sunglasses...
I usually just listen to what he is asking for or wants around that time and just get that. Our kids are between 7-17 so I toss them some money and they go to the shops and each get something small for him. So I get a present for being a great dad to our kids and they get him little things to celebrate the day :)
We go out for dinner and she gives him the gift they make from school. He loves it.
So spend as much or as little as you like OP!
My kids give what they made at kindy or bought from the school father's/mother's day stall.
They're so excited & proud to hand over what they made or chose themselves it'd be like saying it's not good enough if I bought something else. I might add a block of DH's favorite chocolate 'from me'.
We've gotten some really weird stuff. Half the time DS7 asks us what it is (that he bought from the stall). Lol.
These father's/mother's days are over commercialised & it's not about the gifts but showing appreciation.
A photo of him and bubz for his desk at work?
I bought a book called 'why I love my daddy' so he could read it to bub. On mother's day I was given the matching 'why I love my mummy' lol. Now or eldest is in preschool so he'll get whatever he brings home 😁
Depends on how money is for us. Last year we were struggling so for mothers day I got a block of chocolate, a stubby holder and a teddy bear and he got a key ring and an engraved beer glass (about $30) each. This year I got slippers, pajamas, a new dressing gown, chocolate, a tea pot and a bunch of face masks which all up was about $200. He's getting a new tackle box and a few other bits and pieces which cost me about the same. Our kids are 3, 5 and 8 so we take them shopping, give them a limit and heavily give suggestions 😂. Don't ask me what years before that were, I forget lol. We don't go over the top, just sort of stuff that the other looks at but won't actually buy for themselves
