When I met my husband, I was NOT thinking about what kind of father he would be. I was 19 and in college partying my face off. (somewhere in there I got a degree…) He was funny, smart, sweet, and HOT. Fast-forward more than 15 years… and I realize now I really lucked out. He’s not only the best husband ever, he is also the best dad to our two kids.

So when Father’s Day comes around, I feel like I can never find him a gift that represents just how awesome a dad he is. But I can sure try. This year I teamed up with Snapfish to create the prefect Father’s Day gift for my sweet hubby.
First, I had the kids go through my phone and select their favorite pictures of them with their dad. Together we found some really great ones… and I realized that I am obsessed with taking pictures of him when he falls asleep while putting the kids to bed… which is ALL THE TIME. The second my husbands head hits a pillow he falls right asleep, it’s a talent really, and one that I have always been extremely jealous of. The kids were hysterically laughing when they saw all the pics, since I wake him up to go into our bed, so they didn’t realize just how often their dad passed out with them!
|How funny is this?! I have about 100 pictures similar to this one!|
I originally wanted to make him a canvas for his office, but the kids had a hard time selecting just one picture, so I decided we would create a photo book. It was SO easy to create! I already had the Snapfish app on my phone so I just uploaded all the pictures from my phone right to my account. Then I logged onto Snapfish, which looks all new and fancy since the website recently got a makeover. They have a huge variety of photo gifts and picture options… plus you get a ton of free prints for just signing up. They had photo book with a Father’s Day theme, which was perfect!

It was really easy to add pictures, customize the layouts, and add graphics, texts and other features. It took me about 15 minutes to make the book and I had the kids look at it to make sure they liked everything. We even created a whole page of sleeping pictures.

Snapfish is running a number of awesome Father’s Day deals right now, so I decided to also get my father-in-law a gift. He is the best ‘Papa’ to all of his grandkids.. and where my husband learned what being a good dad was all about. Since he loves playing cards when friends and family are over, I got him a deck of photo cards. I used a picture we took of all 4 grandkids not long ago. The cards turned out awesome and I can’t wait until he gets them. (this will also be a test to see if he really reads my blog… he says he does… so let’s see if he calls me out about telling the world about his Father’s Day gift ahead of time! ha!)
|Love how the cards turned out!|
They have tons of other great photo gifts for dad… I also considered the iPad case, travel photo mug & the photo puzzle, so cute! So if you are looking for a meaningful gift this Father’s Day, be sure to check out the new Snapfish! (Also… if you are interested you can join Snapfish Superfans!)
