Fathers Day Gift Ideas for New Dads

Updated on October 22, 2013

Unique Presents for the First Time Daddy

Every new dad should have a memorable First Fathers Day! If you're looking for Fathers Day gift ideas for new dads, you're in the right place.

You'll find a variety of gifts that are sure to delight any new pap. On a budget? No problem - I've found daddy presents that start at under $15, so you're bound to find the perfect choice.

Dads of babies need caffeine to help them recover from those sleepless nights.

Brighten Daddy's morning with a coffee mug adorned with a favorite photo of his little sleep depriver.

I love this mug pictured on the left, because it has four different photos...

because obviously your infant is so cute that just one picture won't cut it!

You can also personalize this with a one line message - so add a loving sentiment to brighten his morning!

Baby Handprint Kit and Frame at Red Envelope

I wish I had known about this when my kids were little! For some reason, the only handprint we ever took was of my son when he was about 3. I still touch the handprint when I walk by it - he's 15 now and his hands are so much larger than mine.

This kit is a marvelous way to preserve just how tiny those little hand and footprints really are!

This handsome wood frame is available in 3 colors: white, natural or espresso.

You don't have to mix or bake - the air-drying (non-toxic) clay is simple to use. It just takes a few seconds to get a perfect impression of the little one's hand and foot.

Reversible mats are included in 4 different colors - pink, blue, tan or white.

A present that everyone in the family will appreciate for years to come!

This unique set makes an exact 3d replica of hands, feet and bottom.

Takes less than 2 minutes of the baby's time - quick and easy to use!

Create a thoughtful tradition with this unique handprint kit.

Kit consists of 5 different handprint sets - one for each of the first five years.

Available in pink or blue.


Best Gift Ever Onesie in Pink, White or Blue at CaféPress

If your husband is like mine, he really doesn't notice what the kiddo is wearing. My husband just always grabbed the top outfit when he had to dress the little one (I always made sure to have the outfits matched, as my hubby seems to think that 2 different shades of red go together).

At any rate, he's sure to notice this outfit - and laugh out loud when he sees it!

Adorable footprint themed wear is available as a onesie or t-shirt in your choice of pink, blue, light green or white.

CafePress also has fun selection of bibs, hats and diaper covers that are sure to bring smiles to Daddy's face.

Perfect outfit for all those holiday photos!

"I Make Adorable Babies" Shirt at Amazon

An important holiday like this calls for new clothes - and here are some comfy shirts just perfect for lounging around and enjoying his special occasion in!

I know I said that these were shirts for the man, but I just love this matching set so much that I had to add it.

Plus, you still have to have something fun and cute for the baby to wear, so why not get a combo for both of them?

And as an extra bonus - both Daddy and tyke can wear it long after this special occasion is over. Who doesn't love a bargain?

My father taught me everything I know. Unfortunately, he didn't teach me everything he knows.

Manly Jewelry

Custom Mens Jewelry at Shimmer & Stone

Jewelry is always a wonderful gift for any important occasion - and this special holiday is no exception!

Dog tags are some of the most popular accessories for men. I absolutely love the personalized dog tags like the ones pictured on the right.

Shimmer & Stone has loads of different dog tag styles that can be custom engraved with almost anything you like - handprints, footprints, a special symbol.

Add the baby's birthdate, weight or a special message.

You just email the image and they'll send you a proof before they create the custom piece.

Order by June 10 to receive by June 16.

Cool Ties - Really!

Photo Tie at Personalization Mall

Time for true confessions - how many ties did you get your Pop when you were growing up? I confess - I gave mine too many to count. And he pretended to like every one of them (is there an award for Best Acting?)

Face it, a tie is THE time-honored traditional Father's Day present.

No need to be boring about it, though. Let me show you some fun and unique ways to honor that tradition.

Either give the new daddy a truly horrific tie, or make it something really fun - like this unique photo necktie.

Personalization Mall has several different styles of photo ties available that make fabulous presents for celebrating this fun occasion..

Outdoor Gift Ideas - Summertime Is Outdoor Time

Floating Lounger at Amazon

It can't be a coincidence that this holiday takes place in June - it's the perfect time to be outdoors.

And what makes a better present for the new pop than cool equipment to help him enjoy the great outdoors?

The best way for a young family to spend a hot summer day is relaxing at the pool, lake, or beach.

And the best way for Daddy to relax is in a comfy float, complete with a drink holder.

The new papa will be king of the pool in this easy-to-inflate float that includes a backrest and comfortable ottoman.

A truly rich man is one who's children run into his arms when his hands are empty.

Be Prepared: A Practical Handbook for New Dads at Amazon

Becoming a father can sometimes be overwhelming!

Fortunately, other guys have been there before, and better yet, they've written books about it.

Here's a great book that's chock-full of all the things men really need to know - how to change a diaper at a sports stadium, how to read Sports Illustrated with a baby, the importance of reggae music when soothing a crying baby.

Wonderful laughs, but also useful tips!

A fun read that will keep Papa laughing, but that he'll secretly refer to over and over again.

A father is his daughters first love and his sons first hero.

Family Sized Hammock at Brookstone

Once the little tyke is mobile, you can bet that he or she will want to be outside whenever possible.

Here are some great gifts to make that outside time more enjoyable for Daddy.

Nothing quite says "relax" like a hammock!

This cushioned hammock is large enough for the whole family to chill out together, and is sure to be the perfect gathering spot after lawn mowing, gardening, and those exhausting games of tag.

Which of these is your favorite?

      My husband is a choco-holic so I have a king size hazelnut chocolate bar hidden away for his father's day gift. Shhhh though - it's a secret until father's day.

      I see you have a good sense of humour Camden. I had a good laugh on your 3rd paragraph - "New dads need caffeine to help them recover from those sleepless nights. Brighten Daddy's morning with a coffee mug adorned with a favorite photo of his little sleep depriver".
