Father's Day Photo Gift


I’m struggling a little bit on how to top last year’s Father’s Day gift to my husband. I took pictures of my son (then 3.5 years old) holding up wooden letters spelling D-A-D and then I framed them for my husband’s office. It’s definitely not a new idea, but my husband loved it.

I love looking at these pictures. My son was so proud to be making something for his daddy.

This was a last minute gift I pulled off the morning before Father’s Day. My husband was golfing with his dad, so I had a few hours to get the pictures taken, send them to Target for one-hour processing and then get them framed.

Here are some cute ideas I found on Pinterest as I was searching for inspiration for this year’s gift.


Fun idea for a few kids – write a message on their feet. (Original source not found)
