If you’re anything like me, you will have thousands of photos on your camera or phone and once every 6 months or so, you’ll do a batch of printing but never actually do anything with the prints! I know I’ve got so many photos that I haven’t even put in albums yet but I am making a real concerted effort to actually do more with my photos. With the help of Snapfish, I have created a few ideas that you might like to try out either for yourself or to use as gifts!
The first idea is the most simple; creating a memory book. This idea is something that I started when my husband and I started dating. I used a book he brought me home as a gift from his trip to Bali and then every time we did something or went somewhere I’d add it to the book. It’s got years of wonderful memories in that I can share with my children when they are older.
Make sure all the Dads in your life have prints of themselves with their kids as well as treasured doodles. Highlight favourites in a calendar that starts… in June, of course! Or, get creative and make your own growth chart, with Dad as the marker. Collect the photos in a handy lay flat photo book and see what a difference a few months really make.
If Dad travels for work, keep him connected with photos and keepsakes that go anywhere. Put a candid shot on a key ring. Or, surprise dad with a magic mug or travel mug which features a montage of favourite photos and keys art scans. Just capture a fun shot of everyday life, like picking them up from school, or snap a special moment, like a football match or school play. Fill the mug with some new socks or some chocolates to make him smile!
Don’t forget to share all these photos with him using the Snapfish Mobile app so Dad can access these treasured moments 24/7 wherever he is.
Does dad have a weakness for radio control cars? Or Scottish golf courses? Create a one-of-a-kind gift with photos of his favourite memorabilia or activities. Use pictures you have, or scan his collectables. Make a collage, for home or work, that inspire him all year long. This would look great as a collage photo block or desk calendar on his desk
Create a once-in-a-life time gift with photos of dad that span the generations. Create a photo book of dad enjoying his favourite hobby with his grandfather, father, and now his own kids. Or put together a collage poster of all of his favourite people, throughout the years and frame them for his office.
