Father’s Day Gift Guide for the First-Time Dad
June 3, 2021For new dads, the first Father’s Day is always special. With much of the attention going to mom before, during, and after pregnancy, June is dad’s time to shine! Show a new father how much he is appreciated with a thoughtful and useful gift to celebrate him. In case you need some inspiration for the perfect gift, we’ve put together some ideas that are sure to make this first-ever Father’s Day one he’ll remember always!
An over-the-shoulder diaper bag is probably one of the most practical gifts for a new dad, but sometimes he doesn’t need to leave the house with everything a new baby might need. That’s what makes the Dad Hoodie such an awesome gift idea. It’s a stylish, super soft hoodie with enough storage compartments to hold the basic supplies that’ll get him and baby through short trips from home. There’s also a vest version! And, because accidents always happen when least expected, give dad a supply of Oh Sh*t Kits by Safety 1st to store in his car or carry in the Dad Hoodie. Each kit includes a diaper, pack of wipes, face covering, hand sanitizer, and two disposable changing pads.
There are many baby keepsake books on the market, but Letters to You is a unique way for dad to record his own thoughts and memories each year of his child’s life. Instead of the common “baby’s milestones” keepsake, dads can go a step further by writing notes and letters to their baby every year. This journal asks questions and provides prompts to reflect on the year – accumulating dad’s favorite memories with his son or daughter. When finished, it’s the perfect sentimental gift to pass along to his little one at graduation or a wedding.
Add to his wardrobe with an adorable “Papa Bear” shirt – and even throw in a matching onesie for the little one.
Sometimes new dads just need something to help soothe the normal pressures of fatherhood. A good night’s sleep is one way to help beat the stress, and it can all start with a great pillow. This customizable premium adjustable loft pillow from Coop Home Goods will help dad find just the right support and comfort no matter how he sleeps – side, stomach, or back!
Sometimes new dads just need some space. Whether they find that space outside or inside, they can take this Vankyo portable mini projector with them, connect it to their smartphone, and play videos, TV series, or sports matches.
If the new dad in your life is tech savvy, then we’ve got a couple of ideas for you. Baby monitors are always the rage, but this Miku Smart Baby Monitor is, well, really smart! It tracks baby’s breathing rate, temperature, humidity, movement, and sounds. It sends an alarm if baby wakes and lets you know when she falls asleep again. Just download the app and access the analytics. Because the new daddy will be taking lots of photos, this tele lens attachment for smartphones from Moment is another great idea for the tech-loving dad.
For those who enjoy getting crafty and creative, do-it-yourself Father’s Day gifts are always special and treasured. This great slipper gift idea is both practical and fun! Start with a pair of new comfy slippers and fill them with treats and tiny gifts. Or if you are into essential oils and handmade body care products, whip up a batch of this rosemary mint shave cream.
