Here are my picks for terrific Father’s Day gifts for all the types of dads in your life.

FOR THE NEWEST DADS
New fathers and fathers-to-be deserve special recognition on their first Father’s Day. Treat him to DaddyScrub’s DaddySwag Gift Set ($89), which includes a set of comfy scrubs, a coffee mug, t-shirt, hat, sunglasses and more, all emblazoned with “I’m the Daddy!” Finish off your new dad’s wardrobe with an I Love Daddy Tie ($29), also from DaddyScrubs.
