It’s always fun trying to work out what to get Matty for Father’s Day. He has every piece of technology known to man, although he would debate that. There are many items I have bought him that have never been used or put into a drawer after being used once. One of the perks of having kids, is letting them choose what to get him for Father’s Day.
I asked Olivia what we should get him and she said “Some black navy pants, some hats, some photos…” and something illegible about Peter Rabbit.
I focused on the photo part of the sentence.
I have used Snapfish for loads of different projects. Photo books for the Grandparents, Birthday Invites and Christmas Cards – it’s a great option when looking for a gift from the heart.
- Start with what you want to make
With Father’s Day quickly approaching, I decided to let Olivia create something special for Matt. She landed on a photo book, a mug and a couple of prints for his desk.
Hot Tip: Keep the person you’re buying for in mind when making your choice – but I am sure they will love whatever you choose. Remember to keep an eye out because there are always great discounts on the site.
- Select your favourite photos
It’s always nice to reminisce while looking back at photos, but it really highlights how fast time is moving. Liv loves looking at photos of herself, especially as a baby. Each image has a story and we spend hour reliving the memories as we go.
Hot Tip: You might need to have pre-selected a range of images – otherwise you could be there for a while, but just make sure you give them plenty of options.
- Get making
You’ve got your product. The kids have picked the photos. Now it’s time to start making. I let Liv choose some images, graphics and layout. It was much easier to do it on the tablet as she could drop and drag with her fingers instead of the mouse.
It really is as simple as 1, 2, 3.
Olivia turned to me half way through the photo book and proclaimed herself to be done, after some tweaking by me, we finished his pressies. I really can’t wait for him to see what they have created. I know he will use his mug every day.
Are you ready to win your own large photo mug (to keep for yourself or gift to someone else – you choose)?
