How to Make his First Father's Day Memorable

How to Make Dad’s First Father’s Day Special

Father’s Day is usually filled with homemade gifts, ties dad won’t wear and activities that make the patriarch of the family feel loved. While this day is important for all dads, it is especially important for first time fathers celebrating their first dad-centered holiday. Here are some ways to make the man in your life feel extra special on Father’s Day.

1. Take Him Somewhere He Loves

Sarah Daniel of Mansfield said she plans to treat her husband to his favorite sandwich this Father’s Day. “Aubrey and I are going to take him to his favorite sub sandwich restaurant for lunch that we don’t go to often because it’s too far from our house.”

2. Give Him a Memorable Gift

Commemorate the day with a gift that he can remember for years to come. Daniel is giving her hubby a framed print of seven-month-old Aubrey’s footprints. A first-time father might also enjoy a framed picture of his firstborn on the day he first became a daddy, or an engraved keychain or piece of jewelry with the date of his first Father’s Day.

3. Make Memories

While gifts make Father’s Day special, spending time as a family is equally important. “We plan on celebrating with our extended family, but I’m also planning on having our time, just the three of us.” And you don’t have to spend a lot money or plan anything exciting to have a memorable day. Going for frozen yogurt, watching a movie or going for a walk in the park can be just as enjoyable.

4. Tell Him How Much He’s Appreciated

First-time fathers don’t always feel like they’re playing a big part in the parenting process. Express to your husband how much he mans to you and your baby. Daniel said she tries to express her feelings of gratitude to her parenting partner on a daily basis, but she hopes she can show and tell him how much he’s appreciated this Father’s Day. “I feel so blessed that my daughter has a Daddy that not only cares for her daily needs, but also constantly thinks about providing for her future so she can be successful and supported by a loving family.”
