Here are the best Father’s Day gift ideas for first-time dads:

  1. Tac Vest Baby Carrier — This carrier by Mission Critical is the perfect gift for police dads or military operators. It is the manly way to carry your baby! Tula also has a military inspired print baby carrier.
  2. Custom Front Page Puzzle — You can get a puzzle with the front page of the New York Times for any date. Get the puzzle for the date your little one was born and they can assemble it together (when baby is old enough) and then hang it on the wall!
  3. Tool box diaper bag — Get dad his own manly diaper bag.
  4. Daddy Baby T-Shirts — There are tons of cute coordinating t-shirts that dad and baby can wear on Father’s Day. My favorites are the Pint/Half-pint tees, I’ve created a monster tees and this I’m Your Gift onesie.

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic preschooler and newborn, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my first little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Realizing that we would probably have more kids in the future, I wanted to document everything, so we would remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
