“A breast pump. Um, what’s he gonna do with one of those?” — @HowToBeADad

“An empathy belly, although I have to admit it would be pretty funny to see DH look knocked up!” — jezebella

“Shirts or hats that proclaim he’s the ‘World’s Best Dad’ are just cheesy. I know my DH would never wear those.” — SarahL77

“Um, a mani/pedi?” — @allisonpini

“The Daddle. It’s a saddle for LO to sit on daddy’s back and is kind of on par with the Snuggie.” — @EmersonHospital

“A young, hot nanny. Well, that may be the worst gift for you — he’d probably enjoy it.” — stylez6

“An expensive watch. Secretly he’d probably love it, but he’d rather I save our money!” — barbiebomb

“Socks. I know they’re not exciting…at all, but he really did need them.” — Conniewing

“Another positive pregnancy test. There’s no way he’s ready for baby number two yet!” — sodelish

“DH’s aunt gave him a house plant, as if the poor guy isn’t overwhelmed enough trying to keep our kids alive!” — missfire
