Exciting First Father's Day Gifts for New Dads

Choosing the perfect first time Father's Day gift for a new dad can be a bit of a challenge, especially if it’s your first time doing it — thankfully, Voucher Express is here to help with inspiration designed to get you stressing less and relaxing more. Read on to find some exciting gift ideas for new dads and dads-to-be.

DIY Greeting Cards

Unsurprisingly, we have the classic greeting card up first. A carefully chosen card with a heartfelt message can go a long way to show your warm wishes and congratulate a new dad on their newborn. If you’ve got the time (and skill), making a card from scratch can give your first time Father’s Day gift that extra special touch — add a gift voucher from Mamas and Papas or Jojo Maman Bebe to help cover the costs of all his new (and costly) baby accessories and you’ll have one happy dad in no time.

Gift Cards and Vouchers

With a newborn comes a lot of toy shopping. Why not give dad a break and let him treat himself for once? Our gift cards and vouchers make excellent first time Father’s Day presents, with options from the UK’s biggest brands and retailers all under one roof — send him a Foot Locker Gift Card for some new treads, or try The Restaurant Gift Card, redeemable at over 150 top restaurants and eateries in the UK, from Bella Italia to Cafe Rouge and everything in between.

Books, CDs and DVDs

If the new dad in your life is a bookworm, a music lover or a film buff, why not treat him to his favourite artform? A fantastic gift idea for first-time Father’s Day, send him a National Book Token Gift Card and watch him get lost in his favourite stories. Or, try a Record Token Gift Card, redeemable in independent record stores across the UK and the perfect gift for life-long music lovers. For the film fanatic, the Cineworld Gift Card is an excellent choice for catching the latest flicks.


A box of delicious chocolate is always a safe choice for a first Father's Day gift — who doesn’t love sweet treats after all? Shop chocolate Father’s Day hampers from Cadbury, the nation’s favourite chocolate makers. For first-time dads with a discerning palette, explore the Green & Black’s organic Father’s Day chocolate range, made with flavours sourced from around the globe.
