Father's Day Gift Idea's


With Father's day just over 3 weeks away ( 21st June), it was time to get my thinking cap on and decide what the children could get James.  I wanted the gifts to be something special that he could look at and be reminded of some of the wonderful memories we have made over the last few years.

Snapfish jumped out at me straight away as they offer a wonderful selection of gift ideas from mugs to jigsaw puzzles and everything in between.  The only difficulty I had was choosing what to get him! After much deliberation, I finally picked 3 different items, a photo book, photo mug and photo panel.

 What I loved about the website was how easy it is to use.  The categories are set out in a clear way so you know where to look.  Registration is quick and simple and when creating each gift, I could upload pictures from my computer or from social media sites too, which is perfect.

So what did I buy?  Let me show you.

Soft Custom Cover Photo Book


This photo book. It includes 20 pictures of our children from when they were an hour old to Liam's first day at school and Sophie at playgroup. The thing I love most about this book is the option to add a caption under each photograph, for example Halloween party or Cheeky faces. It costs £12.99 and you can purchase the photo book here.



Single Photo Mug


This is such a sweet little gift, The much holds 11oz so it is a nice size.  I opted for the single picture mug and I had the chance to add some text too.  The photograph fits perfectly and the text is nice, bold and easy to read.

It costs £7.99 and you can purchase the photo mug here.




10x8 Photo Panel


This photo panel makes the perfect gift.  You select 15 pictures and they are mounted on a beautiful wooden panel frame.  There is a chance to add text also but I decided not to as I wanted the focus to be on the photographs.  This panel has an easel on the back so it will sit perfectly on a shelf, fireplace or desk.

This beautiful gift costs £14.99 and you can purchase the photo panel here.






Snapfish customer service is fantastic. You can email, call or contact them via live chat.  I contacted them asking for an update on my order and the person I spoke to was very happy to hep and told when I should expect delivery.  I honestly cannot fault Snapfish.

My items were delivered within 5 days of ordering them and came by Royal Mail.  Various delivery options and prices are available (depending on item(s) ordered)

I cannot wait to see James' face when he receives his gifts I know he will love them.  Father's day is going to be extra special this year thanks to Snapfish.

If you are looking to order gifts for Fathers day the last date for orders is June 15th.

You can connect with Snapfish over on their website or over on Facebook and Twitter
