The Best Father’s Day Gifts for New Dads on Amazon

As much as new moms deserve gifts of gratitude on Mother’s Day, so, too, do new dads who are splitting diaper and baby duty. Here, we’ve rounded up a range of gifts that will help the time-starved new dad who’s celebrating his first Father’s Day rediscover some sense of sanity — from organizers to sleep aides and time savers.

For the Dad Who’s Lacking Sleep

Nodpod Weighted Sleep Therapy
$25 at Amazon

We’re a big fan of sleep masks here at the Strat, and we heard about this weighted one from someone who would know all about sleep deprivation, emergency physician Wallace Blake McKinney. He uses this eye pillow to sneak in naps in between shifts. “The weight is just right and it stays in place — lets me get comfortable on my side, too.”

For the Dad Who’s Lacking Sleep, Part Two

Kate Somerville Goat Milk De-Puffing Eye Balm
$38 at Amazon

He might roll his eyes at the frivolity of an eye balm, but take it from photographer Gray Malin, Very Good Light editor David Yi, and the Cut: It’s a little indulgence worth having.

For the Dad Who’s Lacking Sleep, Part Three

Bodum Travel Tea and Coffee Press
$27 at Amazon

So he can whip up some French-press coffee anywhere he is, even half-zonked.

For the Dad Who Doesn’t Have Time

Jack Black All-Over Wipes for Face and Body
$15 at Amazon

Because showers are a real luxury to a time-starved person.

For the Dad Who Never Gets Out Anymore

RIF6 Cube Mobile Pico Projector
$250 at Amazon

Even if he can’t step out to use his MoviePass subscription, he can stream the latest movie right on the living-room wall with this pint-size projector that we love.

For the Dad Who Needs to Organize

Yamazaki Home Tosca Laundry Basket, Large
$50 at Amazon

A chic-looking basket that will provide a home for the mountain of dirty laundry and odds and ends that are piling up everywhere.

For the Dad Who Needs to Clean

Neato Robotics Botvac D3
$300 at Amazon

We were skeptics on robot vacuums until we saw the way the Neato could deep-clean a hardwood floor, and at $300, this guy’s a whole lot cheaper than the one we reviewed.

For the Dad Who Wants to Save Time in the Kitchen

Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker, Programmable, 6 Quart
$40 at Amazon

When the Postmates gift cards are all used up, he can just pop a roast in here in the morning and forget about it until it’s ready to be served for dinner.

For the Dad Who Loves Taking Photos of the Baby

Lomography Lomo’Instant Camera Black
$89 at Amazon

Everyone in the group thread is getting all of the baby-photo updates, but this instant camera will give him the chance to print out some of his portraits.

For the Dad Who’s Looking a Little Rough Around the Edges

Go Comb
$20 at Amazon

A handsome, personalizable comb that he can store in his wallet for some on-the-go, bleary-eyed grooming.

For the Dad Who’s Been Changing Many, Many Diapers

Zwilling J.A. Henckels Stainless Steel Soap
$15 at Amazon

This curious stainless-steel soap just needs water to activate, and it’s supposed to work better at ridding your hands of those hard-to-ditch smells like garlic than regular soap can.

For the Dad Who Needs Some Quiet

Cowin E7 Active Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones
$70 at Amazon

A little noise-canceling action might help him restore a sense of calm.

For the Dad Who Works From Home

AM Get Clean Mist
$10 at Amazon

Because kids’ messes tend to go everywhere, this handy screen cleaner will help keep his work station and laptop free of crumbs and debris.

For the Dad Who Gets the Sweats

Nest Learning Thermostat
$209 at Amazon

With one of these smart thermostats, he can adjust the temperature to a perfectly chilled temperature with his phone.

For the Dad Who Could Use Some Relaxation

Viktor Jurgen Shiatsu Neck Massage Pillow
$40 at Amazon

For the guy who’s been holding a baby for hours at a time.

For the Dad Who Doesn’t Have Time to Shave

Professor Fuzzworthy’s Beard Shampoo
$14 at Amazon

If he hasn’t been shaving, but could still use a good clean. This one cleanses without stripping your face of its oils, meaning no itchy beards here.

For the Dad Who Doesn’t Have Time for the Gym

Iron Gym Total Upper Body Workout Bar
$26 at Amazon

So he can still do reps at home.

For the Dad Who Keeps to a Strict Schedule

The Miracle TimeCube Timer
$17 at Amazon

A timer that comes in handy if you hate the grating sound of an oven timer, like to workout at home, or are maximizing your productivity.

For the Dad Who Could Use a Cold Beer

MiiR Stainless Steel Beer Growler
$55 at Amazon

A colorful growler for the dad who home-brews, or just loves a cold one in summer.

For the Dad Who Could Use a Cold Cocktail

Corkcicle Men’s Invisiball Ice Maker
$30 at Amazon

Not one of those fancy gold ice-ball-makers, but a pretty close (budget) second.
