With Father's Day fast approaching here in the US, I wanted to give you some ideas of how to use your photography for personalized gifts.
All of us know a dad who may be hard to buy for, so instead of a new tie or socks, (and my hubby has actually asked for socks before), why not spend a little time thinking about something more personal for him.
That's where your photography can come in, to help create a memorable Father's Day gift.
Let's get started.
1. Print a beautiful shot and frame it for your dad.
This could be a gorgeous sunrise or sunset. Maybe your dad loves the woods! How about a great picture of his dream car? What would he like? Go take a picture and have it framed!
2. Consider making a meme for you dad to show your appreciation of him.
Here's a post I did on how to create a meme. Personally, I love using PicMonkey.
You can take a special shot and write directly on it to show your sentiment.
Then, just print it locally and you have a special, one of a kind gift that shows you thought about him.
3. Give photos of yourself or your kids to your dad.
Either a family portrait or individual pictures could be a really nice gift. Especially if he doesn't live nearby.
4. Make a special coupon for your dad.
My husband loves when the kids give him the gift of car washes.
So get a cool background, write on the photo with PicMonkey and print it locally.
This one is a real winner in our household!
5. There are lots of novelty ways to use your photos for a gift. You can make things like:
- Mouse Pads
- Key Chains
Assignment: Go through a few shots right now and look for a couple that could make a nice present for your dad. If you don't have anything in particular in mind, then grab your camera and go looking for a great shot. Then, upload it to a place that prints photos and make a memorable gift. Here's a post on cropping shots.
BLOGGERS: Think through how your blog or photos can be a blessing to others! Too, keep improving your photography to use for your posts!
CELL PHONE USERS: You can take shots with your phones and upload them to PicMonkey and create gifts as well!
Hope these tips help!
