    I've been trying to figure out the same thing-as it's Fathers day in NZ too. Some ideas I've thought of so far:

    A "Daddy's little girl" infant outfit (or something similar that's gender nuetral like "I love my daddy").

    All Blacks (you may prefer a different team!) onsie and booties along with tickets for the Dad to be to go to a test match. Obviously LO won't be able to go to the game but it gives OH a gift that they appreciate as well.

    One of the pregnancy books written for blokes (some that come to mind are "What to expect when your wife's expecting", "Blokes guide to pregnancy", and "She's having a baby and I'm having a breakdown")

    Good luck! Keep us posted with what you choose.

    Car stuff is a good idea too! I'm leaning towards the AB thing for my DH--maybe tickets against the Wallabies though so we have a chance of winning! :thumbup:
