Father's Day is a special time for any dad, but it's particularly meaningful for new fathers. Celebrating fatherhood for the first time with their little ones is a day that a new dad will never forget. So why not make it even more memorable with the perfect gift?

Whether you decide that you want to pamper your favorite dad or give him something that will help with the baby, there are plenty of creative gifts that he'll appreciate. That might mean an incredible breakfast in bed using a 45-second omelet maker or helping them keep their beard groomed with a luxury shaving kit. Or, he might appreciate a white noise machine to help get the best sleep possible or a cocktail to cap off a long day.

When helping out with baby, he might appreciate Eddie Bauer's diaper bag. It looks like a normal backpack, but it makes diaper changes a breeze thanks to its portable changing pad and numerous pockets for storing everything he'll need. And to help bond, Tula makes a wonderful baby carrier that is not only lightweight and ergonomic but has a built-in pouch so that you can carry everything he needs while on the go with baby.

Other gifts might be about preserving memories. This might be a piece of custom jewelry or, if he's creative, a Polaroid camera to snap his own keepsake pictures. Either way, with our curated list of gifts for a first-time dad, you can't go wrong. Check out these great gifts that will make any new dad feel loved.
