10 Gifts To Celebrate Dads!

This family tree is so creative and cute!

It’s possible that between midnight feedings, endless laundry, and picking up toys, shopping for a Father’s Day gift might have slipped your mind.  So let me be the one to remind you that it’s next week (the 17th – eek!) – time is running out.  As if you don’t have enough to do already, right?  The good news is that there are many crafty and creative options out there, and many that are easy and quick too!

The first year of parenting isn’t easy.  I do a lot of eye rolling and muttering, and I complain about things my husband does (or doesn’t do) more often than I’m proud of.  I try to shower daily, occasionally put on makeup, and I do my best to make him feel loved and appreciated every day.

I know that being a new mom has been one hell of a roller coaster.  I imagine that being a new dad feels similar, yet my husband always seems to stay strong and confident in order to hold our family together.  To say thank you, I hope I can make his first Father’s Day feel memorable and special.

Here are ten cute gifts to help celebrate this year’s new dads…
