Gifts for new dads
NIID UNO 2 Backpack
This fashionable bag wasn’t designed to hold bottles and diapers, “but it may as well have been.” It’s made from a single piece of water-repellent fabric, and because it lies flat when unzipped, it doubles as a mobile changing station.
“This is a massive upgrade over the VHS shoulder-brick camcorder your dad brought home when you were a kid.” A self-stabilizing one-handed camera that shoots “buttery-smooth” 4K video, it can turn even a novice into an “Oscar-worthy” cinematographer.
Jack Black All-Over Wipes
Any guy on extended child-care duty might appreciate having wipes of his own. Made by Jack Black, a premium men’s skin-care company, these moistened cloths will mop away sweat and dirt from head to toe, and leave a subtle scent of cologne.
