Daddy plays a special role, so it’s only fitting to give him a special gift—whether it’s for baby’s arrival, Father’s Day, the holidays, his birthday or just a well-deserved thank you.
Rather than buying a run-of-the-mill gift, celebrate the bond between baby and Daddy with a present from your child. While you might have some idea of what’s on Papa’s wishlist, you may need help thinking of a sentimental gift that comes from your little. Because they can’t actually pick something out themselves yet, we’ve done the shopping for them (and you). Say hello to some of the cutest and most creative gifts from baby to Dad out there. Pair any one of these with a meaningful card to create the perfect present.
