Father’s day is just around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about how to make the day extra special for all the dads out there who worked hard or are still working hard to raise happy and well-mannered kids.
Father’s day is a particularly special day for new dads who are still in the throes of learning how to parent and are adjusting to life with a new baby. Whether the new dad you’re celebrating is your partner, a brother, or a friend, this Father’s Day why not pass along a gift to let them know that you recognise and appreciate the effort they’re putting into raising their little one. Here are our top picks for gifts:
Fatherhood can be exhausting, especially for a new dad adjusting to having his first baby. Between the middle of the night wake-ups, tantrums, doctor’s appointments, and running to the shops for more diapers, being a new dad can really take a lot out of you. Help rejuvenate the new dad in your life with this Pamper Him Deluxe basket, one of many great gift hampers for him available nowadays. It includes Urban Rituelle shave cream, aftershave balm, and all-in-one wash, a luxurious micro plush bathrobe, and an assortment of milk and dark chocolate.
Between work, baby duty, and other commitments new dads don’t get a chance to get out of the house much just for fun. Give him the gift of a round of golf, tickets to a rugby or AFL game, or a concert with a friend or two. Time to meet up with friends tends to become more limited after having kids, so giving him the chance to meet up with his mates for a day of entertainment is a double-win. Just make sure someone is available to watch the baby while he’s out!
If the new dad in your life loves a to barbeque, consider getting him some tools or ingredients to upgrade his setup or recipes. A good pair of tongs, a spatula, oven mitts, sauce brushes, or a meat thermometer would not be wasted on a true barbeque lover. New sauces, chutneys, or spice rubs to try out are also a great option. You might even grab a new barbeque cookbook along with the ingredients for one of the recipes and make dinner with the new dad one night. New parents often don’t have the time or energy to cook more than a basic meal, so putting together the ingredients for something special would be so appreciated.
If you know the new dad’s preferred type of beer or liquor, picking out a gift for him this Father’s Day couldn’t be easier. There are many wine gift hampers to choose from, as well as wine and liquor. This Whiskey Decanter Hamper is a great option—in addition to a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label, it includes an attractive Nachtmann Aspen whiskey decanter and two tumblers. He’ll appreciate being able to have a nice drink after tough days with the new baby!
