The Best First Father’s Day Gifts

With Father’s day coming up I have been searching high and low for the perfect gift for my Husbands first Fathers Day!

Here’s a round up of some of my favorite gift ideas:

Daddy and Me Board Book

This is one of my faveorites! A board book customized with pictures of your baby and his Dad. This is a great keepsake for Dad, but also such a great memory for your child.

Building Memories Hammer

For the hands-on guy this hammer is the perfect gift to show your love and appreciation for all he does.

Daddy Photo Canvas

I adore this little canvas. Perfect for some decoration in the nursery or any other part of your home. This canvas will sure to be cherished for years to come.

Dad’s Playbook

For the guy who loves a good read or the sports fan this book has nuggets of wisdom from some of the worlds most famous coaches.

Custom Pocket Knife

Can you tell I love personalized gifts? Every man I know has their favorite pocket knife, and this will sure to take that special place for the Dad in your life. Offered in three different styles there are plenty of options to make sure it is just right for your man.

Daddy and Me Matching shirts

I LOVE matching shirts. It’s honestly like a disease I have. A quick search of the internet and you can find anything from a sweet message for Dad on his first Father’s Day or a witty pun that will bring a smile to his face.

New Dad Survival Kit

This carved box is perfect for those who love a more personal gift. You can fill the box with anything you think will help Dad survive that first year with baby. Books, snacks, gift cards or coupons for a guy’s night- the options are endless.

Personalized Watch

I bought my husband one of these wooden watches from Swanky Badger for our wedding. The quality and craftsmanship is truly impressive. He gets compliments whenever he wears it. You can personalize the back with baby’s name, birth date, or even a message for the new dad.


I also have a coffee mug obsession. A coffee mug filled with candies and gift cards is one of my all time go-to’s. Plus, what new parents isn’t living on coffee? This mug is really clean and modern, but there are tons of other options to find one that is perfect for Dad.

Custom Foot Print Canvas

I absolutely adore this keepsake canvas. Printed with your little one’s footprints it is sure to make Daddy’s heart melt right then and there. If your looking for a DIY project this is a great one you can make at home. A canvas, paint pens, and an ink pad from Micheal’s or Hobby Lobby and you are good to go! We took prints of August’s feet right after he was born- take a look at ours here.
