Is Father’s Day really this weekend? I guess it’s time to be thinking about ways to show those men in our lives how much we really care! As part of my preparation process, I pulled up pictures from last year’s celebration and was reminded of how nice it was to celebrate my husband’s first Father’s Day. While I was at it, I prepared a little post full of tips for all of you (especially if you have a new baby and are coming up with ideas for a first Father’s Day). Enjoy!

The first Father’s Day is a really important milestone in the life of a new dad, but it’s more important that he feels special every day! After our daughter was born, we treated ourselves to professional photos of ourselves with our newborn (taken by Erica Leigh Photography). My Father’s Day gift to Phil was selecting a few extra special shots and framing them just right so he could take a look at work whenever he was missing her (and me).

My husband loves sweets almost as much as he loves being a “Dada”. If you haven’t read this book by Jimmy Fallon, you must! I immediately knew I had to treat Phil to this book and some treats. I began a search for adorable local bakeries. I found one with some great options! My man loves a good chocolate chip cookie!

Pro Tip: It’s all about knowing your loved ones and treating them to the things they love. My hubby and I will sometimes pick out our own presents, but we always find a card that says just the right thing and try to make the day as special as possible.

I am sure if you asked him though, the best part of his first Father’s Day was getting to spend time with his little girl, and we had so much fun with him!

We truly hope that all you fathers have a really special day this Sunday! Whether celebrating at home or out and about, we hope you get to spend time with your loved ones, that they tell you how much you do for them, and give you extra hugs and kisses! Happy Father’s Day from Side by Side Design!
