2. Some Driveway Moments for Dad

First, what’s a “driveway moment”? It’s when you’re so captivated by a feature story you’re hearing on NPR that you stay in your car to hear it to the end—even if you’re sitting in your driveway with the motor running, groceries to unpack, and kids to feed. This CD has humorous, touching stories from the National Public Radio archives that capture the essence of fatherhood.

3. Travel/Trekking Baby Gear

Make daddy comfortable about being able to carry the tiny tot. Gift him a stylish and sturdy baby carrier. The backpack styles are especially favored by men and great for trekking with babies. The carrier will keep reminding Dad that he does not give up all his outdoor activity after the baby is here. There is just going to be one teammate more!
