Father's Day with Snapfish

31 May 2015

Father’s Day is usually a tricky one for me. What do you get the dad who has everything? If he wants something, he gets it. That doesn't leave me much room for inspiration. This year is even more difficult as we’re actually in Orlando for Father’s Day, so now I have to find something transportable and take it with me to Florida too.

Just for jokes, here is a photo of my Dad, Mum and I ready for an Indian wedding.


I think that sometimes personalised things are the best type of presents you can give to close family and friends. It’s a great way to highlight memories, holidays and relationships, and is always guaranteed to bring a smile to the recipients face. Ok. Personalised item decided. Now what to get him? The main thing I needed to remember is that it has to be able to fit in my suitcase so it wouldn't be the best time to sort a personalised cushion or something.

My dad has started helping out a friend’s family business and he’s often driving around as part of an ambulance service. As he gets so tired due to his illness, I thought that a personalised travel mug would be the perfect item. He can have it on the road with him and hopefully save some pennies not having to buy from Costa or Starbs. Not only that, but he can even use it in Orlando if he gets a little bit tired around the parks. It's really sturdy and has a little handle at the top for ease too.

Because my dad also loves the pets in our family, I decided to order a personalised keyring too. The photo is one I took at the end of last year, of Max, Buzz and Rufus all licking out a bowl together. They’re like the Three Musketeers and it’s a great photo. It's only small, but it's going to make him smile and I can see him having it jangling on his keys very soon.

I've used Snapfish before a couple of times and their service is always quick, speedy and easy, not to mention inexpensive. Father's Day is Sunday 21st June so if you wanted to do something personalised with Snapfish, make sure you get your orders in before 15th June. To get 40% off the whole website, make sure you use the code SFBLOGS. You can thank me later.

Fortunately my Dad won't see this post before we head to Orlando, as he's far too busy tending to the chickens or playing golf to read my blog. However, I know he will love the gifts. Even better, he will be opening them before we go to the Magic Kingdom. What a lovely Father's Day it will be!
