Father's Day Gifts - For the first-time new dad
This year we thought we'd do something fun for our Father's Day Gift Guide - introduce a new category every day or two. Keep checking back for all different Father's Day gifts for all different cool dads on your list!
You never forget your first Father's Day. Which is why we wanted to
launch our Father's Day Gifts series with gift ideas for that guy who's one part sentimental, one part exhausted, and all parts awesome--the first time new dad.
A big gesture doesn't have cost a fortune--or anything at all. The We Love You Daddy printable garland
from Happyshop Printshop is absolutely free.
We're a little picky about Daddy and Me Tee Sets,
but the ones from UK's Twisted Twee are just fabulous, whether you're spending the day at the pub together or not.
(£32 from Twisted Twee)
Silhouettes can be a little grandmotherly, but the custom silhouettes
from Pretty Faces open up the options. If you've got a full-body photo
of the new dad wearing the baby in Bjorn or holding the baby in the
hospital, that would make a pretty darn cool gift. ($30 from Pretty
Real men change diapers. And carrying around their own diaper bags so they don't have to borrow yours. We love the new navy plaid diaper bag
from LA's always hip Diaper Dude ($65). Or for something really different, try the swanky biplane diaper bag
by Allen Ave ($100 at Babybot)
to take more photos than you ever have in your life. Grab the new dad a
shiny new SLR for all those memorable moments, like the Nikon D3100 14.2 Megapixel Digital SLR
on sale now at Best Buy. Think of it as his own push present
Nice touch: it comes with a free photo book from Shutterfly
for a limited time. (Camera $649 at Best Buy.)
New daddies new their for special places too. While you can personalize it with a name, we think the Reserved for Dad pillow
says it all. Perfect for the man cave--or what's left of it, now. ($33 from shannspishak)
