How about a funny gag type gift. Maybe ear plugs, Advil, rubber gloves and a pair of tongs (Mr. Mom movie), caffeine pills ect. I think that would be a hoot and my husband would get a kick out of it.

A man diaper bag. I think Land's End or Eddie Bauer has them.

How about a backpack-like baby/toddler carrier. If they are outdoorsie people, I bet he'd love one.

Find a great book about dads/kids.

I have to agree with Margie. My husband got an Eddie Bauer backpack diaper bag and enjoyed having a "manly" looking diaper bag (especially since mine was a Vera Bradley)! Other than that, maybe just a cute bib that says Dad on it somewhere, or a picture frame with Dad on it that they could put a baby picture in, or even a shirt that says "World's Greatest Dad" or something like that on it (my husband would have hated a shirt, but you know the dad, maybe he would love it). I don't think many dads expect much for them at a baby shower, so anything you give would probably be appreciated.

All my friends are really into sports. So as Dad gifts I always get them a jersey of their favorite team.

My husband always told everyone he wanted tools for a baby shower gift. He never got any but I think maybe an apron with a note saying how amazing he would be to his wife to help prepare meals since she will be so sleep deprived and busy.

A good diaper bag, such as already mentioned or from diaper dude.

Maybe some nice tools, cordless drill, hammer, ratchet set. Get good quality stuff from Dewalt, Ryobi, Craftsman, etc....There is a ton of baby stuff to put together.
