Diaper changes, putting the baby to bed, and getting meals together should be a joint effort for new parents but sometimes the dad has to take one for the team. When he’s schlepping around the city with more organic, cotton diapers than he ever thought possible, a spacious tote (that could be repurposed for a pending island getaway) will put a smile on his face—just like that fancy new mug you scored him with that miraculously keeps his coffee hot all day long.
When in doubt, a gift card for takeout to lighten the load on cooking, or a thoughtful handwritten note go a long way. But to really get the wheels turning, we’ve compiled a short list of the best first Father’s Day gifts that will offer some temporary relief in the form of caffeine, aromatherapy, relaxation, white noise, and a little recreation. With these gifts that say alternately “mazel” and “thank you,” hopefully he’ll be feeling like a champ and a truly upstanding dad.
