There’s no hangover like a newborn hangover and for the first time, the special man in your life is experiencing the next level exhaustion that only new parents go through – supreme tiredness mixed with endless love.

There are plenty of ways to not only celebrate that love but provide a little relief, moral support and a good laugh to new dads. For the dads who like their shakes, a big brew of coffee or even an ice cold beer at the end of the day, we’ve put together six ‘save me’ custom gifts for sleep deprived dads everywhere.

1. Staying awake at the office

If this new dadda is up all night then upright at his desk all day, this Engraved Wooden “New Dad” Postcard with Stand will make a memorable addition to the office desk. Made from distinctive honey brown wood, it is professionally laser engraved with his baby’s name, birth date, height and weight. All the cherished details to keep him loved up all day and ready for the night shift! The clear acrylic stand makes the postcard easily displayed, so this new dad can show off his new little love to all.

2. Knock his socks off… the top gift ranking!

He’s opened new socks, undies and even a razor, all very useful! However what this new dad really needs this Father’s Day is a New Dad Father's Day Hamper – Printed Survival Kit, Bamboo Printed Photo Card and Engraved Wooden Keyring.
