Becoming a parent for the first time is, in a word, magical. Yes, there are late nights and early mornings, a lack of sleep, stress, and knowledge about how to install a car seat (oh, and and all of the crying). But somehow, there really is no greater joy than welcoming a baby into the world and knowing that you're responsible for helping them through life. That's why we think it's important to commemorate a new dad's first Father's Day, since it can be such a special and unforgettable day. To make it doubly special, check out our list of the ultimate first Father's Day gifts for new dads, and go all out when you celebrate the father figures in your life this year. Better yet, pick one that means something to him or you, opting for personalization, monogramming, or simply selecting a gift that's a tongue-in-cheek play on one of his favorite activities or hobbies. We've made it easy: Each one of these sentimental gifts offers a different take on the holiday, from funny to silly to sweet and even a healthy dose of sappiness. Check out our first Father's Day gifts below and help him have the best Sunday in June ever.
