Gifts to get your partner for their first Father’s Day



Happy Father’s Day! (Picture: Getty)Father’s Day is nearly upon us here in the UK, and dads across the country will be ready to be showered with presents and cards.
For brand new dads, however, the gifts tend not to come from their little ones, but from their partners. After all, most newborns only know how to gift the gifts of vomiting and needing their nappies changed.
If you’re wondering what to get your loved one to say thanks for everything they do, we have a few ideas.
Since we’re the on Father’s Day eve, the options we’ve given can all be bought in stores or with online vouchers, so you don’t have to faff about with delivery.
Quality time
Of course, this may seem obvious. However, for any new parent, there are a million and one things to do, and nowhere near enough time to do them.
Some family time (or alone time if he needs a break) could be a great – and free way – to show you care. And if there’s a breakfast in bed in there, too, you’re on to a winner.
A special experience
Whichever ‘dad type’ you’re with, sites like Virgin Experience Days have something to suit.
You can opt for motor racing, football stadium tours, comedy nights, afternoon tea, or even a father and child superhero portrait.
Prices start from around £25.
A little tipple

No.3 is critically acclaimed (Picture: Waitrose)Given that it’s Father’s Day, why not get something extra special for him to drink? No.3 London Dry Gin is £35 from Waitrose, and has been described by gin expert Geraldine Coates as ‘a classic’ and won multiple awards.
Another gorgeous addition to the booze cabinet would be Cardhu Gold Reserve Single Malt Scotch Whisky, which is down from £42 to £25 at Asda right now. It was masterminded by blender Matthew Crow, and has notes of cinnamon and toffee.
A place to store memories
Now is the time your partner will be making all the memories with your baby, and a way to keep those forever is a project and a present combined.
Paperchase have a number of different scrapbooking options, with some sets coming with everything you need to start documenting your wee one grow.
Boots also offer a number of home decor options you can order and collect on the same day, so you can put your best pics on everything from cushions to mugs.
A morning pick-me-up

Saving dosh and saving his sanity (Picture: Marks & Spencer)It’s very likely that he’s running on empty at the moment – as are you. If he’s someone that loves a coffee to help wake him up, this could be a good present option.
Marks & Spencer sells a range of reusable KeepCups – this model is £12 – that are good for the environment as well as his caffeine habit.
As well as that, many outlets offer discounts when you bring your own cup. Add on a Costa voucher too for added kudos.

Home-made vouchers
If you’re strapped for cash, as plenty of parents are after having to buy nappies and baby food galore, you could make a little book of vouchers for use in the home.
They can be for one date night (where you cook) or one free pass to get out of a night feed. Easier said than done, but it’ll make your partner very happy in the long-run!
And what dad doesn’t love a gadget?
What would a Father’s Day gift guide be without a gadget or two. A drone (like this £30 stunt drone from Argos) or remote control car (such as this from John Lewis for £39.99) can bring out the child in him and pull him out of daddy mode while playing.
Plus, it’ll be a fun activity starter with your baby as they grow.
