Thoughtful Father's Day Gifts for New Dads

By Stacy Curry - 8th April 2024

With Father’s Day right around the corner, it’s time to celebrate the dads in your life. Father’s Day is all about celebrating the men who we call ‘Dad’. Every single one is special whether they’re the man who made you or the one who stepped up. The first time they celebrate as a new dad is an event to be treasured but we know we often find ourselves asking ‘what should I do for his first Father’s Day?’, so we’ve created the best how-to gift guide with ideas to give him the most amazing day. Being a father is a joy unlike any other, so mark the occasion in a way that stands out by truly giving Dad his moment.

Classic Gifts for New Dads

Regardless of the kind of dad you have, there are a few gifts that you can never go wrong with. These gifts are perfect if you favour keeping the celebrations low-key, and understated but still want to mark the occasion. We have a selection of stylish socks, cute keyrings and marvellous mugs that are sure to make your dad smile. 

Sticking to classic gifts for Fathers is a great way to stop his first time celebrating being overwhelming. After all, we all know how exhausted new parents can be! We suggest waking him up with his favourite beverage in a new mug that he will adore and this gorgeous universe-inspired ‘daddy’ mug is the best one for gifting!

If he isn’t a fan of hot drinks, then socks are the next best gift. From vibrant to more subtle, we have an array of socks that will suit your dad no matter his taste. Our personal favourite pair is Mr Sparrow’s Dad’s a classic, which features a fun classic car and a subtle stripey pattern. With these, he’ll be reminded of his first Father’s Day with every wear.

Our final traditional gift recommendation is a pint glass, for the dad who favours relaxing with a beer at the weekends. With a variety available, our top pick is the Personalised Daddy Bear Engraved Pint Glass, which is the perfect combination of sweet and practical. If you’re looking for a slightly larger gift, why not pair the glass with a selection of his favourite beers for him to enjoy?

Personalised Gifts for New Dads

If you’ve been searching for an extra thoughtful way to mark his first Father’s Day, then a personalised piece is the best pick. Personalised gifts are totally unique to the receiver and with a huge variety of personalisation options, we have some of the best presents to choose from. With the ability to write a message or name of your choosing or even add a much-loved picture, custom gifts mean you can mark his first Father’s Day with a gift that he can treasure for years and remind him of the most special occasion. Whether you choose something wearable, practical, or just for fun, he is sure to feel loved when he opens his bespoke gift. 

One of our top picks is a pair of carefully engraved cufflinks. If he adores getting dressed up and accessorising his look, this pair of Brushed Finish Round Cufflinks is an ideal choice. Get each one engraved with a different message, or pop a date on one side along with ‘daddy’ on the other to create a special piece that will always remind him of when he became a dad.

If he favours a more casual look, then a sleek bracelet he can wear as an everyday piece might be a welcome addition to his outfits. With a variety of chain and cord bracelets available in our men's jewellery collection, it’s easy to find one to match his style. Our favourite is this Stainless Steel Chain Bracelet. With a personalised plaque on the chain, this comes nestled inside a presentation box with your picture for an extra sweet touch.

If he sticks to his staples and wears the same accessories day in and day out, maybe it’s the perfect time to treat him to a stylish storage solution for his favourite jewellery. Shop our collection to see the full range, but we recommend our Personalised Black Accessories Travel Box. With space to store a watch, cufflinks and more, this little box is ideal for home storage but can also be taken on any trips he needs. With the added touch of his initials or the word ‘dad’ on the lid, this is sure to serve as a reminder of a wonderful first Father’s Day.

If he isn’t a lover of jewellery, then a sweet gift like a custom bookmark will suit the Dad who adores reading. Whether you think he will favour pictures or a meaningful message, you can create a gift that will always remind him how much you appreciate him. Why not pair it with a book on his favourite topic for an added extra?

Hobby Gifts For New Dads

We all know our dad’s favourite hobbies, right? Well, if you want to make him feel seen this Father’s Day then why not give him a gift that will help him learn more, or that he can use while he enjoys his downtime? Handyman, mechanic, gardening guru or grill master - Dads can be a lot of things, but if you figure out his favourite title (other than dad, of course!) then you can curate every gift to make him feel truly treasured. 

If the title of Gardening Guru really does fit your dad, then there are so many wonderful gifts you could choose for him. From novelty planters, pot hangers and watering spikes, we have it all. However, this time we’re recommending something a little more unique. Our Mindful Thoughts for Gardeners book is a fun twist on the usual gifts. If he enjoys spending his time in the Garden, this is a great little book for him to read on his tea breaks to get inspired and give him some ‘me time’.

If he favours a more active lifestyle, choosing a gift that can help him enjoy his favourite sport even more is sure to be a winner. Our Personalised Hex Bike Tool Set is the best combination of sentimental and practical. Ideal for attaching to his keys, this mini tool set is a must-have for any dad who likes to cycle in his spare time. Pop your nickname for him on the front wooden panel, and it’ll surely make him smile when he opens it.

Finally, if you call him Chef Dad during the summer, we have a set of cards that are a must-have for any father who has mastered the art of grilling. These sauce-proof cards are filled with tips, and recipes, and can create a multitude of games making them perfect for him to whip out at the next family BBQ. Better yet, if you’re going all out this Father’s Day, why not plan a camping trip for you and Dad? You can gift him these fun cards as a keepsake to reuse and remember the trip by!


Dads deserve to be spoiled every day but, the most important thing about their first Father’s Day is that you celebrate in a way that best suits them. Whether that’s a super lowkey day or a big party. Let him know how loved and appreciated he is by giving him his moment and making it one to remember.
