First Father’s Day gifts should embody all the love he feels for the new life in his life. That’s what makes My Day Registry so special. It’s a service that allows you to dedicate a day just for dad. How does My Day Registry work? You choose a special date, like the day his baby was born, and register it on their database. Registration gives the new dad exclusive ownership of that day. He’ll receive a framed certificate of ownership, which is perfect for displaying at home or in the office.
The special dad will also receive a secure online profile, where you can preserve memories of this valuable time. Upload video of his bungled attempt at crib assembly or photos of the first time he cradled that new little life. You can even add a soundtrack. The custom profile is easily sharable with family and friends and can be viewed 24/7.
