So since it’s now June and Memorial Day is behind us, we have to start thinking about the next major holiday: Father’s Day. I’ll admit that my dad sometimes gets shafted by my brother and I when it comes to Father’s Day gifts. We always work really hard to make sure mom gets something awesome, but once Father’s Day rolls around we’re left scrambling to find a gift. Well, not this year! This year I teamed up with Snapfish to get my dad probably one of the best and most personalized gifts we’ve ever given him.
For Mother’s Day, my brother and I got pictures taken by one of my good friends Sarah Canning. I figured, why not do something personal for my dad with those same pictures? He told me a few times which ones were his favorite so I made sure to keep that in mind when making the gifts.
My dad looooves coffee. He fills up his Yeti mug every morning for work and he makes himself a cup in the mornings every weekend. He owns a lot of mugs. One for almost every place he’s been, a few sports ones, a Temple mug (Go Owls!)… none of them have any pictures of my brother and I plastered on them. That’s unacceptable! So Snapfish helped me out with that.
I used a few old pictures of my dad and I, some pictures of me and my brother as kids, and then a recent picture in the middle, nice and big 😉
One for work, one for his dresser at home. He keeps a few small pictures of my brother and I on his dresser at home, so why not add a larger, more professionally done photo to the mix? The second one is for his desk at work. He just got a new job that he loves so I can’t wait for him to set this up on his desk! Snapfish did a great job with these, they look great!
My dad has always been super involved with my brother and I. From the time we were babies, my mom always says he never shied away from changing a diaper. At one point in our lives, my dad was working during the day and my mom was working nights. Every night my dad would make us dinner and give us baths and put us to bed. My mom says she’s glad that happened because it gave us a stronger relationship with him. I’d tend to agree. On top of that, he was there for every single one of my plays, concerts, and musicals.
He coached my brother in football, baseball, and hockey. He worked hard to give us an amazing childhood and and he still works hard to make sure we get a chance to go to college. He never forgets to tell us he’s proud of us. And I think that’s what makes him such an amazing dad.
