Father’s day is fast approaching and before you know it, it will be the big day… Sunday 19th June. See below for our top 5 Father’s Day gift ideas.
It’s one of those occasions when we try to show our dads how grateful we are. After all, they do a lot for us… From DIY around the house that we wouldn’t have a clue how to do alone, to always being there for a cuppa when we need a chat. Dads a pretty super people and sometimes it’s a struggle to think of what gift to get them. Its hard to say “Thanks for everything” with yet another pair of socks or pack of novelty golf tees. This year, why don’t you show him you really care by turning his favourite photo into something for the wall at home or a photo gift for his office. Here are our top 5 Father’s Day gift ideas:
Prices from £22 and ready in just 1 hour.
Turn your dad’s favourite picture into a stunning canvas print. Professionally hand stretched on solid pine frames, these prints come ready to hang and won’t fade in sunlight. So he will be able to enjoy this Father’s Day gift for many years come. If I had to choose a photo to put onto canvas for my dad then it would be this one…
He had just been awarded an MBE in recognition of his Charity work within the Scouting Association. We were all so proud of him that day.
Prices from £65 and ready in 90 mins (Chelmsford) and Next Day (Colchester).
For unrivaled image quality and durability, make his day the best ever with a photo onto our new HD Chromaluxe Aluminium Prints. They really do have to been seen to believe how incredible they look. 1mm thin aluminium with a high gloss finish, comes ready to hang with a premium aluminium sub-frame. Extremely durable and the high gloss effect makes photos almost come to life, like you are looking through a window. Shhhh… This year I am getting my dad an aluminium… (don’t tell him!). It’s going to be of this view that we looked out onto one night while on a family holiday camping in the Australian outback.
It was such a clear sky that night… So clear in fact that we even saw the Milky Way (in the center of the photo.)
Personalised Photo Mug
Just £10 and only takes 20 minutes to make.
For a simple gift that he can use and enjoy every day then a personalised photo mug is for you. Our mugs are 11oz so are slightly larger than the normal photo mugs you might see elsewhere. He won’t even need to get his hand dirty cleaning it as it is dishwasher & microwave safe. My dad likes a laugh on his tea break so I would put this photo on the mug.
It was when I was just 6 years old and thought it would be a good idea to get my head stuck in a chair so I didn’t have to go to school. My dad eventually had to saw the chair in half to free me, not before taking this priceless photo first of course.
Personalised Photo Slate
From £25 and ready in just 1 hour.
This is a really popular choice for Father’s Day as it’s goes great in an office of man cave (aka the shed). The earthly, natural slate material will remind him constantly that he needs to fix that roof or retile the bathroom. They come with a stand to make displaying the slate really easy. I think he would like this image on a slate. As with a lot of special photos, they sometimes don’t mean much to others like they do to you. This one is no exception.
This is my dad getting on with one of his first projects in his new workshop that he built himself. I know that he was so happy in this photo and it would look great in his workshop for years to come.
VHS to DVD Conversion
Priced at £15 a tape (discounted to £10 a tape for orders of 10 tapes or more).
What better way to spend Father’s Day evening that by watching videos of your dad and your when he still had all his hair and you still could sit on his shoulders. Using professional machines we transfer your home videos onto DVD, ensuring that they can be watched time and time again. VHS technology can deteriorate so its best to convert them before it’s too late.
So that sums up our top 5 Father’s Day gift ideas for this year. Hopefully you have some great ideas now instead of just another pair of novelty socks. Don’t forget, we can take your photos straight from your phone, prints, negatives, slides, memory cards, USB or however else you may have them. Pop in to see us either in the Meadows Shopping Centre Chelmsford or on Sir Isaacs Walk, Colchester. You can also order Canvas & Aluminium prints on our website www.blueskyprinting.co.uk
