For any new dad, celebrating the first Father’s Day can be an overwhelming and joyful occasion. The gift of their newborn son or daughter likely feels like more than enough for most, but that doesn’t stop the people in their lives from wanting to commemorate the occasion — after all, you only have your first Father’s Day once.
When it comes to choosing sentimental gifts for men that truly capture the moment but don’t veer so far into emotional territory that they become impractical, consider a thoughtful option from Speidel’s comprehensive Father’s Day gift guide, which can help anyone with a new dad in their life find the perfect gift.
Maybe the first-time father in your life already owns the perfect watch, but doesn’t wear it enough due to an uncomfortable or unattractive band. In this case, a replacement metal watch band could be exactly what it takes to transform that watch collecting dust in a drawer back into Dad’s favorite accessory.
Speidel watch bands come in a variety of styles and can fit nearly any sized wrist. A replacement watch band can inject badly needed life into an old gift or family heirloom, creating a first Father’s Day gift that is as practical as it is meaningful.
If the new father isn’t a wristwatch fanatic, consider instead a great pocket watch.
The many pocket watch options from Speidel can be engraved on the back — perhaps even adding the mother’s name or other personal details — to maximize on sentimentality in a form that is both practical and private. Pocket watches are a great gift for dads of all ages, styles, and professions, and the personalization options will transform this piece into not just a great first Father’s Day gift, but into a piece of family history that will be cherished for many years to come.
There is, of course, always the option of getting Dad the perfect wristwatch for Father’s Day.
For generations, watches have been used to help commemorate important milestones in our lives. Becoming a new dad is one of the most important days in many men’s, so falling back on old traditions will help to capture the significance of the moment.
The beauty of a great watch as a Father’s Day gift is that one can be found to fit any taste. From metal bands in a variety of colors and finishes, to leather options, to dial faces that run a gamut of colors and styles, the perfect gift for new dads can be one that they will love on its own, on top of the sentimental value receiving it as a Father’s Day gift will imbue the watch with.
This Father’s Day, give the new dads in your life a gift they will cherish for many years to come. Give them something they can look back at and remember the way it felt to hold their child for the first time, to hear their first words, see their first steps. The first-time father in your life deserves something that will continue to have sentimental and meaningful personal connections not just on this one day of the year, but all year long.
