The new dad has entered into a different era of gifting: He is now the “impossible to buy for” guy.

When it comes to picking out a gift for a new dad, it can be tempting to go for an old standard, like a tie, or a pair of socks. But you can do way better than a tie! One thing that ties, and socks for that matter, have going for them is that they’re practical and useful; incorporating those concepts into picking out a gift for a new dad can help you identify gifts that he will really love.

Personalized tools like an engraved tape measure, items that have safety in mind, like bike lights or a baby first aid kit, or a really nice pair of sweats for lounging around the house are clever ways to give practical gifts that will be truly welcomed by the new dad. And, if all else fails, there are always gifts of food and drink to make him feel loved.

Ahead, we’ve rounded up 30 can’t-miss gift ideas for the man who is proudly in his “impossible to buy for” years—with not a single tie in sight!
