Finding a way to celebrate a dad’s first Father’s Day can be tricky, and the Dads we spoke to know that, especially since it’s not always the most celebrated holiday. There are a lot of overwhelming feelings around the day, especially for those who may not have the best relationships with their fathers or grandfathers.

With more Millennials and Gen Zers becoming parents and an overall open conversation around dysfunctional families, there’s a cultural shift with more people wanting to celebrate their fathers and father figures for the first time. Whether you’re a friend looking for a funny gag gift to celebrate a loved one’s first Father’s Day, or you’re celebrating a father figure in your life for the first time with something sentimental, we understand the importance of this expression of love. A gift can’t say it all, but it’s a way to say: “Thank you for being a Dad. It’s sometimes a thankless job, but you’re doing good.”

Check out the best first Father’s Day gifts below!

Classic Brown Leather Watch

Dad of two, Justin Wilson, told Best Products that he’d gift a newfound dad a watch. “The first couple of months will be crazy with feeding the baby. Sometimes every hour or every couple, so you need a watch to keep track,” shares Wilson. Once you become a Dad your sense of time goes right out the window. It’ll be nonstop diaper changes, laundry washing, balancing of work and life, and endless changes over the years. This classic leather watch from Olevs comes in nine colorways with different band and face options to fit the different Dad styles.

We included this watch in the list because of its sleek design and easy-to-read face. It features a traditional 12-hour clock along with the day of the week and numerical day. This watch serves as an excellent introductory piece. Who knows, maybe for a future Father’s Day (when the child in question becomes a working adult), Dad could be upgraded to a smartwatch or even a Rolex.

The Original Craft Beer Club Subscription

Drawing inspiration from Trong Tran’s suggestion, consider giving a new dad a beer as a nostalgic gesture connecting generations of fathers. However, instead of just a single bottle, elevate the classic "beer as a gift" idea with a thoughtful twist: a beer subscription from Craft Beer Club.

You can opt for a subscription lasting 3, 6, or 12 months, with each package containing 12 or 24 bottles of artisanal beer. This way, they’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a variety of small-batch beers from breweries across the United States, complete with informational cards detailing different beer notes and production practices to explore.

For all the sober Dads out there, consider gifting them a non-alcoholic drink that’s just as artisanal. It’s a thoughtful way to say "Welcome to the Dad club" without the alcohol.

Nursery Rocking Chair Teddy Fabric

Gen Z has officially reached the age where we are now the parents (scary, we know). But that just means all the “dad-like” gifts have gotten a stylish upgrade with more innovative products targeting new dads. Instead of the (albeit comfortable) recliner chair of Dad’s from the 80s, new dads can rock their newborn to sleep with some TikTok-approved style.

This nursery rocking chair brings all the comfort with extra padding and teddy material covering the chair for a chic look that any partner will gladly display in the living room or nursery. Non-slip pads on the rocking legs will keep scratches off your floors while the thickened metal frame holds up to 300 pounds.

Funny Aprons for Dads

If the dad jokes started before the baby even arrived, then he’ll be excited about this grilling-approved apron that features the most dad-phrase of them all: Hi hungry, I’m Dad. He’ll wear this to every birthday, BBQ cookout, and family gathering where he’s behind a grill — even if he’s not cooking.

The black apron is made from thick layers of 100% cotton for durability, and the three front pockets are deep enough to hold multiple utensils, his phone, and anything else he needs. He can adjust the neck straps for the best fit, to guarantee the entire front of his shirt is protected.

Complete All Seasons Baby Carrier

This first Father’s Day gift made our list of best baby carriers and for good reason.“The X-strap design of the straps sets your baby’s weight evenly across your shoulders, back, and hips and the easy-open clasps are a cinch to operate,” says senior parenting editor Cat Bowen. Dad can wear it in six different positions, and the breathable fabric cuts down on sweat buildup.

Gifted Groomer Kit

When you have a baby in the house, little stolen moments of self care can be a treat. We love this luxurious set from the Art of Shaving, which includes pre-shave oil, shaving cream, a shaving brush, and after-shave balm. It’s been clinically tested for sensitive skin and is unscented (since babies can be susceptible to strong fragrances).

Gift Card

You could spend hours shopping for the perfect home improvement appliance or power tool you think he’s had his eye on. But it’s often easier to just get him a gift card so he can have a fun afternoon wandering the aisles of his favorite hardware store. Sometimes, the best gift is the gift of shopping for yourself.
