Beyond Neckties and Store-Bought Cards: Meaningful Gift Ideas for His First Father’s Day 1. Homemade cards. Use baby’s handprints and footprints to make a sweet, artful card Dad will cherish. Here are some great ideas to try! 2. Keepsake keychains. Keys are something we keep with us most of the time, so a personalized keychain is a meaningful gift that will always be close at hand. 3. Unique photo gifts. Have you seen the photos with “We love you Dad” written on the kids’ feet? It makes a really cute Father’s Day gift. Alternatively, I love this photo from The Unoriginal Mom that uses wooden letters from the crafts aisle. 4. Handprint sports balls. If Dad is a sports fan, he’ll adore this! Simply put baby’s handprint on a baseball or any other sports ball Dad is a fan of. It’ll make a cute display in his man cave. 5. Photo books. Gather up the sweetest and best photo memories of Dad and baby thus far and compile a photo book keepsake. I really love the spin that From the Fence Post put on a board book titled “I Love My Daddy Because…” which she bought on Amazon for under $7. She matched the photos with the text of the book to make a really special and unique gift. 26 Beyond Neckties and Store-Bought Cards: Meaningful Gift Ideas for His First Father’s Day 1.
