A selection of craft beers maybe? Or a voucher for a hot towel shave? Something nice but not a physical momento IYKWIM.

This might be useless advice, but it doesn't have to be anything dad related. It could just be the same sort of thing you'd buy him for his birthday or Christmas. What sort of stuff is he into?

Bloody hell the worlds gone mad!!!

Is this a thing now? It was a lovely gesture for him to get you a present for mothersday, but it's just a gesture not compulsory!

Get him a card from bump, you find them in most cars places and it!

Get the baby a football/rugby shirt in his team colours, if he has one he follows op.

Amazon have got some dad to be teeshirts for sale. If you have prime you could get one in time for Sunday.

I'm in the same situation and have got him a card from the bump and this book:

<a class="break-all" href="//www.amazon.co.uk/Amazing-Daddy-Rachel-Bright-x/dp/1408331683/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1497649466&sr=8-1&keywords=amazing%20daddy&tag=mumsnet&ascsubtag=mnforum-21" rel="nofollow noindex" target="_blank">//www.amazon.co.uk/Amazing-Daddy-Rachel-Bright-x/dp/1408331683/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1497649466&sr=8-1&keywords=amazing%20daddy&tag=mumsnet&ascsubtag=mnforum-21

I figure he can read it to the bump now, to help her become familiar with his voice, and still use it when she arrives - one of the reviews said that the black and white contrast of the pandas seemed to catch her baby's interest when being read to.

Can't do links but Google 'fmly store' they do some lovely stuff and money goes to women's charities. I got my dad the papa t shirt and my dp the dadding it

Get him a card and a bunch of flowers too! DH was just saying the other day how much he likes sunflowers, but nobody ever buys them for men. He's getting that & a box of chocolates - the Thorntons father's day ones.

I took my dc shopping for a father's day present today. They asked to go to the charity shop where they chose...

A massive plastic toy car and a happy birthday card with a monkey on it. Apparently he will love the card because the monkey is wearing glasses not true just like Daddy's.

My dc are very small Grin

My DH thought it was a bit ridiculous when I jokingly mentioned it on mothers day so I haven't gotten him anything.

My DF is a different story however.... he bought my mum a card from my bump on Mother's Day! So I've done the same for him for Sunday and got him a little peppa pig grandpa book.
