This might be a little weird, but I need gift ideas for our sperm donor. My partner and I are using a known donor to create our family; we will be the legal parents, but he will have a relationship with the child(ren) (our daughter is due in October ). I'm tying to come up with gift ideas for Christmas, Father's Day, and maybe his birthday.
He is 25, bartends at a gay bar, owns a small dog, and lives with roommates. I don't know what his hobbies are besides eating and smoking, and I'm not sure if he's still in a relationship (since most of our conversations are about the baby).
My skills are few: I can barely sew, and can't knit or crochet (so cute baby booties are out). Last Christmas I made him a sperm ornament out of polyclay (he thought it was funny). When the baby is born, I'd like to make little handprint ornaments for everyone (us, the donor, and all of the grandparents)... My partner wants to make footprint shirts for us (the 3 parents)...
And that's all we've come up with so far. I thought it might be cool to make something so he could show off the baby's picture at work, like some sort of keychain/picture frame? Or maybe buy a book on gay fatherhood and make a bookmark or something? What do people make for a father who doesn't have custody of his new baby - he won't need a diaper bag or other baby gear because he'll be using ours when he takes her out.
I really don't know - please help!!! I only have a few weeks before she's born!!!
