4. Personalised Wood Desk Photo Block
Photos. So many photos. That's something you'll learn as a new dad - you just won't want to stop taking pictures of your little one. Our Personalised Wood Desk Photo Block is a great way to display your favourites and makes a really unique gift to give a new daddy, with a baby picture printed onto beautiful natural wood and engraved with a personal message.
5. Personalised Wooden Photo Block With Engraved Name
Okay, this suggestion is almost the same as the last but it features a beautiful engraving of your baby's name, making the perfect piece to celebrate their arrival. When you're a new daddy with a little baby you'll hardly notice how quickly they grow and change over time. This gift is the perfect reminder of how little your baby was, and we're sure a new dad will treasure it.
6. Personalised Wooden Cufflinks
Getting dressed up and putting on a suit is probably the last thing a new daddy is thinking about when he's swept up in the world of fatherhood for the first time but soon enough an occasion will come around. Our Personalised Wooden Cufflinks are perfect for when it does - Dad will love showing off his new baby's name on his cufflinks and it will keep a piece of them close when he's out in the grown up world.
7. Personalised Photo Coaster With Message
For a Dad who's heading back into the office or one who's just in need of lots of coffee after those long nights with a newborn, we'd recommend our Personalised Photo Coaster With Message. The wooden coaster can be printed with a baby photo or family picture to keep dad company on his coffee breaks or to bring a friendly face to his desk. A really special gift.
