As a new mom, you have a lot on your plate. And if you're a procrastinator on top of that, than things don't always work in your favor. In fact, there's probably a good chance you forgot to buy your partner a gift for Father's Day, which is this Sunday, by the way. No judgement here — I may or may not have woke my husband up from a dead sleep last night, just to ask what his favorite color was so that I could shop adequately for his gift this year. Luckily, there are a number of last-minute Father’s Day gifts for a first-time dad that give off the illusion you've been working on this for months.
Although each Father’s Day is special, a dad’s first day celebrating his new role in life is particularly special. (I mean, remember how excited you were about your first Mother’s Day?) Not to add unnecessary pressure to your life, but he’s more than likely at least expecting a gift to commemorate the day.
Luckily, you don’t have to plan too far ahead or have excessive amounts of cash to make your guy feel special for his first ever Father’s Day. These gifts can all be shipped quickly, picked up in store, or better yet, made at home, so that once you do decide on a gift, you can ensure it arrives on time.
8A Date Night Of His Choosing
New parents are always strapped for alone time. Give him a gift you both need and offer to spend a night together at his favorite date night spot. It might not be your ideal, but he will love it.
9His Favorite Pre-Baby Meal
After your baby was born, things probably changed in every way possible — including the contents of your refrigerator. For his first Father's Day, throw baby-friendly dinner options to the wind and cook him his favorite meal. Or, order takeout from his favorite restaurant. Since food has to served at the last-minute, he won't even know you waited.
