    Hiya

    Okay so we are expecting our 1st and I have brought hubby a father to be card from bump. I would like to get him a little present but not sure what. We dont have much cash left this month so cant be forking out loads. I was thinking of getting him subscription to his fave magazine or a dvd voucher but maybe a bit impersonal? Any ideas what to get?What if anything are you getting OH?

    We find out next wednesday if blue or pink :happydance:

    I'm going to get a moonpig card made with the scan picture on it.
    Wasn't going to get a pressie until I read a few posts on here about the same. I'm getting him a vintage union jack cover for his iphone - only £10 on amazon. Just something personal I know he'll like.

    I'm kinda hoping he'll forget it's fathers day as it's the day after we go on holiday so would like to surprise him with the card and pressie while we're away!

    Our LOs changing bag is grey and we also have a black one so he can make do with those :D

    The card sounds lovely! How do I go about getting one done as whenever I go on the site it is all cards for fathers already!!! The case sounds nice also, hubby has an iphone and no case so I might have a nosey!!!

    I had a nose on moonpig yesterday through their Fathers Day cards, and there was one 'Dad to be' card on there.
    BUT... usually you can pretty much change the text on there, so I was planning on picking one I can upload the photo on and changing the text to read 'Dad to be'

    You've all got me thinking now... wondering whether a 'I love my Daddy' babygrow might be a nice idea too... I'm sure I've seen them somewhere!!

    Hmmm trip to Next is in order me thinks.

    I did love all their stuff but we're not finding out if it's a girl or boy and found their neutral clothes a bit limited...
    Once the baby's born it will be another story, I know I'll want everything!!

    Hi,
    I am only 6-7 weeks pregnant at the moment so am scared on jinxing anything.
    I have got him a card but too scared to buy any baby gro's or daddy socks...

    I did however have a trial run as it was his birthday a few days ago...
    I got him a daddy card...
    I was just going to sign the card I got for him from me and LB (my nickname for bump to be) but I knew his friends and family would see the card. So I got a separate one...
    I addressed it to the house and said hand delivered...
    He had no idea who would have dropped round a card...
    When he opened it he went straight to the inside without looking at the pics and words...
    He was choked... He is so scared that something will go wrong but in his own way he really appreciated the gesture... so yes I think Dad's to be will like to be remembered on fathers day, but it is not important how, they just want everything to be okay like we do :)

    Yeah, OH wanted to start buying little things around 14 weeks, but i was adament that we were going to wait til at least 24 weeks. But i'll be 21 weeks by the time fathers day comes around, so i might just bite the bullet. Besides, it'll be a surprise so i get to be the first one to buy anything. (im selfish like that!)
