Ok ladies, I need ideas on something to give my husband the day of our sons birth.

I thought it would be nice to give him something, other than the birth of our child, on the big day. This is our last child and I want it to be special. I have looked at dad rings but I dont like them and he wont wear anything other than his wedding ring. I thought about giving him a stainless steel key chain with DAD on the front and maybe something engraved on the back? All ideas welcome!!! I dont want to spend over 150.00

  • The key chain is a good idea. A wallet, perhaps?

  • The keychain sounds like a good idea. If he works in an office you might consider getting a nice frame to put a picture of all your children.

  • maybe you could make a photo book of the current family at then on the last page of the book say "I'm ready to start a new chapter with you" or something like that. It would be a good keepsake for both of you and you could make another one of the babys first year and keep the collection going.

  • Give him a six-pack, a pizza gift card, 'guy' DVDs, and some down-time for just himself and a buddy or two. Chances are he's been there through thick and thin for you and the kids during the pregnancy and will be gearing up for duty after the birth.

  • Anon 53 The day of the birth?!?!?!? WTF?! He will be at the hospital with me. And he can have a six pack and a pizza when he gets home. Something more sentimental is what I had in mind.

  • The keyring does sound good, with your kids' names and birthdays engraved on the back.

  • I got my husband an engraved pocket watch....he loved it, but then again he's into that kind of thing.
