Unique Father’s Day Gift Ideas He’ll Love:

Hooray Heroes Book

We gave Aiden a Hooray Heroes book for his hospital gift from Nolan when he arrived. We loved the book so much that Hooray Heroes sent me their Father’s Day book as a gift for Dan. I personalized it from Aiden (you can only choose one child) since we have a better understanding of Aiden’s personality. I was able to personalize the Aiden figure, the dad figure, and choose from many possible future careers for Aiden. I figured I would get something else from Nolan. The story is so sweet and would definitely bring a tear to the eye of the toughest dad. Use the code DADDY15 for 15% off all Hooray Heroes books.

Push Pin Map

Dan loves taking his boys on adventures and we have a big bucket list of places we want to visit as the kids grow up. I thought this push pin map would be a perfect and unique Father’s Day gift. If you don’t need the frame there is a DIY option you can order. Don’t forget the pins!

Custom Watch

Dan always seems to need a watch. I found this engraved custom wood watch on Etsy and thought it was a perfect Father’s Day gift.

Foodie Dice

Although Dan loves to cook, sometimes we get stuck in a dinner rut and we get tired of our usual dinners. For a dad who loves to cook these dice would be a fun way to break up a boring dinner routine.  They also have a mixology dice pouch which would add to the fun!


What dad doesn’t need coffee? Especially a new dad of two! If you are shopping for a Dad who loves coffee, the Aeropress is a must have! I love this set that includes the Aeropress and a Burr Grinder (another must-have for home brewing coffee). Dan already has one so he has on his wish list this Fellow Prismo Pressure-Actuated attachment to help with cold brew this summer. 

Have you already finished your Father’s Day shopping, or are you a little last minute like we are? I would love to know what you are getting the dad in your life, so let me know in a comment below!

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!
