Gifts for New Dads; Best UK & US Father’s Day Gift Ideas



You know he doesn’t want another pair of socks so we’ve compiled a list of cool gifts for Fathers Day with a special section dedicated to the best gifts for new dads. Remember to see our Father's Day quotes for you to use in your Father's Day card! See, we've got you covered!


Jump straight to a particular section





Fathers Day is a day to honour and celebrate fathers. It always falls on the third Sunday in June.



There are a few different ideas. One suggestion is that the idea of Father's Day originated in pagan sun worship. Some branches of paganism see the Sun as the father of the universe. Since the summer solstice occurs around the same time of year as Father's Day, some people see a link between the two. Another suggestion is that a woman called Sonora Smart Dodd was inspired by the American Mother's Day celebrations to plan a day to honour fathers. Father's Day has been celebrated in June since 1910 in the USA. The celebrations in the UK are thought to have been inspired by the American custom of Father's Day


Becoming a dad for the first time is exciting, daunting and extremely special. Help him celebrate his first Fathers Day with one of our awesome gifts for new dads.  Remember also, to send him a cute Father's Day message for a new dad. It might be the best gift you can give him!
