Father’s Day will be here soon, and like most people, you may have waited until the last minute to find a gift. Racking your brain searching for a gift that’s more imaginative and unique than a tie or new set of golf clubs might not seem like the easiest task. Perhaps you want to do something special this year that is extremely personal and that truly shows your love for your father. Why not use a photo scanning service to digitize the memories your dad is keeping in his basement? In addition to scanning his photos, have you considered using the original photographs in a gift?
Despite our best intentions, it’s easy to show how special your father is on only one day of the year. However, there are a few ways you can show your father how much you appreciate him that will last for years to come. We like to use Pinterest as a source of inspiration. Pinterst ideas might even beat the best designer tie or best golf clubs because you'll be unique, imaginative, and extremely personal in nature! If you’re looking for something ‘out of the box’ and special, the answer is easy – projects using photographs often convey your personal gratitude the best.
5 Father's Day Gift Ideas From a Photo Scanning Service
1. Photo Keychain
Do you think your Dad would like to carry his grandchildren around at all times? Consider this DIY project - use old credit cards or gift cards and cut them to size. Glue on pictures and paint a layer of mod podge to seal.
2. Photo Bookmarks
Is your father an avid reader? Why not make him a bookmark that makes him smile every time he picks up his favorite reading material?
3. Father's Day Photo Pose
If your dad would enjoy a simple framed photo - why not make it cute and Father's Day themed?
4. Memory Photo Blocks
The below photo depicts this used for Mother's Day but we think this is also a great option for Father's Day.
5. Photo Clock
This is an unique DIY idea - turn a wooden disc into a photo clock. Mod podge your favorite photo onto the wooden disk and then fit the clock in place.
You can draw inspiration from many places leading to unique and meaningful gifts for holidays like Father's Day. We enjoy turning to Pinterest but the world wide web is full of endless possibilities!
