Best Father’s Day Gifts for First Time Dads
This Father’s Day is a special one. It is the first time that your guy has had his favorite little person in his life for Father’s Day so he deserves to be spoiled a bit.
By this point Dad has realized that all of his time is no longer his own. He has begun to figure out how to balance his time, style and sleep schedule between his previous cool self and his new fatherly one. Certain things become less important (the Call of Duty release) while others suddenly are at the forefront, like sleep and entertainment for the little one.
I love the idea of giving something meaningful and something that Dad has been missing out on lately. These are our top picks for 2017.
