Last Minute Father's Day Gifts-Global Baby

OMG it's almost Father's Day. I haven't bought anything for my husband, or my dad yet. How is it that Father's Day sneaks up on us every year! I feel like the last one wasn't that long ago!!!


Today I've seen the online orders that are being packed up and I can see that some of you are more orgainsed than I am, and based on your orders, here is a quick blog post about Father's Day gift ideas.

1. Chekoh Original Wrap


Babywearing is perfect for dads too! It's a great way for them to bond with their baby, and help you out too!! We love these Chekoh wraps because they're lightweight, so he'll be able to use it throughout summer, they're easy to use, and they look good too. 


2. Marlee + Jo - Dad's Life


Dad's life is a monochrome hand illustrated keepsake for Dad to fill out about his childhood, youth, career, friendships, love life and heartbreak right through to Fatherhood.
This book contains carefully thought out personal questions about his past, present, hopes and dreams. We have very limited stock of this lovely book- so be quick!

3. Marlee + Jo - The Grandparents Book


An ideal gift for your dad, The Grandparent's Book is a beautiful monochrome keepsake for grandparents to write down special memories and stories for their grandchildren. It covers topics such as childhood, youth, school and career, but also how grandma and grandpa fell in love and when they started growing their family. A very cute book to get to know the grandparents better!

4. Blueberry Co- Adventures with Dad


Every moment spent together is precious and forms lasting memories so we've designed a book to capture all your funny stories and photos from your time together. Record all the Dad jokes, holidays, and everyday outings you want. We've created spaces for your child to draw a picture or write a story about your time together and our bonus photo pages at the back give you lots of flexibility.

5. Blueberry Co- My Grandparents and Me


This book has been designed to be filled in by one child, one grandparent OR a whole brood of children and ALL of their grandparents. Families are complex things so this book is flexible! 

6. Britax Kick Mats

$24.90 (2 pack)

Save the back of the front seats in dad's car with these handy kick mats, easy to install, and useful too!


7. Cup Holder for Mutsy Igo


The funny thing about these cup holders is that they fit a beer perfectly!! We know one dad who takes the little one for an evening walk around the neighbourhood with the pram, and his roadie.

8. The Pregnancy Book for Men


The Pregnancy Book for Men keeps you updated week by week, not only on the baby's development, but also on the changes your partner may be going through. We love the quirky illustrations in this book- it's totally fun and lighthearted, while also getting to the big questions like 'what is a chromosome?'It's a cool book for first-time-dads-to-be.



If you place an order today (Tuesday) we can deliver within Auckland before the weekend, but as you know, couriers aren't always 100% perfect, so we have pick up in store as an option on our website.


Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!!

This is a question that we hear a lot at Global Baby 'My toddler is rear-facing, but he looks so uncomfortable, is it OK to turn him forward-facing?'. 

Their legs are scrunched up, and their feet are on the back seat. I wouldn't want to sit like that, would you?
