I'm at the age at which many of my friends and cousins are starting to build families. Given quarantine life, several have recently announced pregnancies. For all of them, this will be their first Father's Day as actual fathers.
On one hand, I can't believe the same men I saw chugging jungle juice out of red solo cups are now going to be in charge of a tiny human life. On the other hand, I couldn't be more thrilled for them, their partners, and the families they're building. They've been rehearsing bad dad jokes for years, and before their children are old enough to understand what they're saying and be embarrassed by their words, now is the biggest and best time to celebrate their new-found fatherhood.
The gifts below are perfect for the various relationships you may have with this first-time father — whether you're interested in more of a gag gift, a funny mug, a little basket of small gifts, or an adorable book for him to read to his new little bundle.
