Christmas Gift Ideas for Dad - Spell It Out

Spell It Out

Most dads insist they don’t want you to buy them anything for Christmas; they’re all “Don’t waste your money on me love…”. Sound familiar? I’m pretty sure it’s because they typically end up with an array of clichéd ‘gifts for men’ involving golf, whisky, aftershave or cufflinks – which they probably don’t want or need. In reality, your dad’s going to be far more touched by a gift that has meaning, something heartfelt and personal that makes him feel loved. And that can be as simple as your words.

Spell It Out is a thoughtful and inexpensive way to remind Dad what he means to you, with a simple gift that he’s likely to appreciate the most. I bet he won’t complain about you spending money on this!

Reasons We Love You

Everyone loves their dad, but it’s easy to forget to let him know that. Sure, you might occasionally say it in passing but it’s typically a bit of a throwaway line, isn’t it? How often do you actually elaborate on that and tell him why you love him?

Reasons We Love You is a wonderfully feel-good Christmas gift for dad that celebrates all the admirable characteristics and quirky personality traits that make him who he is, such as ‘You would never throw someone under the bus to better yourself’,
‘You always ask how my cat is doing, and you don’t even like cats’, or ‘You know that Mum is always right. No matter what.’

Whether it comes from yourself or the entire family, it’s an opportunity to give him one of the most meaningful gifts of all: appreciation.

Christmas Gift Ideas for Dad - Profile Portrait

Profile Portraits

Dads often take great pride in displaying photos of their kids, which is why he still has that cringeworthy photo of you in a gold sequined ra-ra skirt from the 1982 Junior Disco Dancing Championships. Not to mention your brother’s graduation photo with the quintessential 90’s ‘Manchester Rave-On’ curtains haircut. Unfortunately, the gallery of pride for your parents is often a gallery of shame for you. Maybe it’s time to take matters into your own hands.

Profile Portraits is an easy way to create a more modern photo of you and your siblings, simply by experimenting with different angles and positions; no gimmicks or props, just some subtle art direction that results in a beautiful portrait that’s both classic and contemporary. Make it Dad’s Christmas gift and with any luck it might replace one of the more embarrassing ones he has on the wall.
