Gift for First Time Dad
A dad's first Father's Day is a very special time. If you're buying for a first time dad, you might consider a gift that reflects this.
One idea is to buy him a scrapbook and get it started for him. Over the years he can continue to add to it. Make sure a picture of him with his kids be taken every year on Father's Day and placed in the book.
Consider writing him a personalized poem reflecting on this special day. Then, you can find a nice frame to put it in.
I always love photo gifts. You can buy him a special Father's Day frame and place a picture in it for a gift. I have a suggestion below for you.

Most dads love treats, so an idea is to make him a treat basket. You could include some candy, popcorn and chips.
Does he like to fix things around the house or work on cars? If so, put together a basket with tools, gloves, measuring tape, flashlight, etc,
If he enjoys gardening, a basket could include gardening gloves, garden decorations and garden stakes.
You don't even have to have a theme. Just fill it with items you know he'll like.
