Best gift ideas for gay dads and dads-to-be!

Nearly half of the families we help at NWSC are gay dads, and we love seeing them realize their dream of parenthood through surrogacy.

We’ve seen some adorable gifts from our surrogates to their gay intended families, and here are some of our favorites. If you have more ideas for gifts for gay dads-to-be, drop them in the comments!

Books for parents:

Journey to Parenthood: The Ultimate Guide for Same-Sex Couples 

(Adoption, Foster Care, Surrogacy, Co-parenting)” – Eric Rosswood

Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight?: Confessions of a Gay Dad” – Dan Bucatinsky

Books for babies:

And Tango Makes Three” – a board/picture book by Justin Richardson

Love Makes a Family” – a board book by Sophie Beer

Things we wish we had when we became new parents:

The Dad Shirt by Lalabu!

A fancy bottle warmer like this one (it sterilizes and warms!)

Quirky gifts:

This hilarious mug on Etsy

An adorable baby onesie on Etsy

Sweet gifts:

Custom star map of baby’s birthdate on Etsy

A classic memory book for all families

Whatever gift you give, all new parents appreciate your love and support. And you can never go wrong with food. A dinner that can be eaten or frozen for later is a life-saver for many new parents!
