Did the special man in your life become a first-time father during the past year? Father’s Day 2022 is coming up fast – on Sunday, June 19 – and perhaps you’ve been scouring the internet to figure out how to make his day special. No worries. We’re ready to be of assistance and have compiled a list of creative ideas to help you celebrate his very first Father’s Day.
Let Him Catch up on Sleep
They say you can never really catch up on sleep, but it certainly feels good trying! New moms and dads are often deprived of rest, so sleep becomes a precious commodity. Why not take on the morning responsibilities and let him sleep in on Father’s Day. It’s such an easy way to tell him “thank you” for being a great dad, and he’s sure to appreciate the extra time in bed.
Give Him Some “Me Time”
We all need a little “me time” every once in a while. It helps us relax, recharge and refocus, and it can be a very healthy practice. Father’s Day makes an ideal time to offer him that luxury. Perhaps he would like some time to himself or would like to spend the afternoon with a few of his dad friends. The opportunity to get away for a few hours can be an incredibly generous gift.
Make His Favorite Meal
There’s a reason people say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. A delicious meal prepared by you – especially if it’s something he really loves or rarely gets to eat – could be a dream come true. If cooking is not your thing, you can always take him out for some tasty food and beverages. Brunch, dinner, spending the afternoon at his favorite local brewery – these are all Father’s Day gifts of great “taste”.
Buy Him Something Fun
A straightforward way to recognize his first Father’s Day is to buy him a gift that appeals to his passions and interests. Something fun and unique. The Bradford Exchange is an awesome place to find Father’s day gifts, offering an incredible selection of men’s fine jewelry, handsome apparel, and collectibles and memorabilia celebrating pop culture, professional sports, military loyalty, patriotism and the great outdoors.
Plan a Family Adventure
Spending Father’s Day together as a family can also be a memorable experience for a new dad. Plan some creative activities inside, take a short road trip or stay in town for a local excursion. It can be as simple or as detailed as you want it to be. It can even be a surprise. Just plan ahead and expect to create a wonderful memory for you, him and the bundle of joy that made him a proud father.
