Is anyone getting their DH/DP a Christmas present off the Bump with a specific message about them soon to be a dad??

I can't decided if it would be sweet....or lame, lol grin

Same here writer! Dh isn't particularly sentimental in that sense but because it's to do with the new arrival it may be different

I've got DH a personalised baby grow with 'nickname loves Daddy' on it. Probably cheesy but I know he'll love it smile

I saw this advert on eBay for a company who produce personalised Christmas Tree Baubles and they make ones with baby images. You send them a copy (via email) of a scan picture and they transfer it onto a glass bauble with diamontes and gems attached - they look beautiful!!!

Not my husband's cup of tea but I really want one smile

cupcake - I though you meant you had bought a baby-grow for your husband to wear, lol grin

I have got both dh and soon to be real life baby matching outfits.
Dh is a big bang theory fan so I got him a tshirt related to the show and have got baby the same but in a sleepsuit. Really excited about giving it to him.
He isn't a sentimental person really and doesn't enjoy reading to the bump otherwise I would have got a book for him to read to it.
I think it depends when baby is due as I wouldn't be doing it if baby wasn't due early Jan.

I found a cute Christmas card on hallmark website where you can add your scan picture and says something along the lines of "we've got out Christmas pudding in the oven" could be for any family member really though smile I fell in love with it especially for only £2.99! grin

Ive got bump a football shirt for DPs favourite team with his surname and number on the back, as part of his birthday present. Even though its technically for the baby not him he absolutely loved it.

I hate myself for doing it and I can only blame my hormones........ but yes.

I've got him a Timmy Time book to read to dd (his name is Tim)

I got a book for his stocking. I think it's called me and my dad. Didn't want to spend too much in case he thought I was mad.

this was a gift dh got given that he loved.

That's such a great idea we weren't going to do presents this year to save money but your thread has inspired me and cheered me up no end. DH is Dutch so the bump will get him these from his footy team
