We’ve compiled our guide to get you started with some photo book inspiration to help you create a gift that’s as unique as he is. So whether you’re looking to create something special for your favourite co-parent or you’re wanting to treat your own dad to something extra thoughtful, you can create a CEWE PHOTOBOOK that’ll keep him smiling all year round.
For Dads Who Like To Explore: A Travel Journal
If your dad is a globetrotter with a taste for adventure, he’ll love a travel photo book. Gather together all those favourite holiday snaps to create a CEWE PHOTOBOOK he’ll love revisiting again and again. You can use text to go into lots of detail and recount your favourite travel stories, so they’ll never be forgotten.
To make your travel journal extra special, try rummaging around in your bags and suitcases for old ticket stubs, receipts and even foreign currency. You can scan or photograph them to add an extra level of detail to your travel guide. A map showing places you’ve been makes a great feature page too. Why not mark it with the route you travelled, or his favourite restaurants and locations? They make perfect gifts for dads who love to revel in their best memories.
Creative Gifts For A New Dad: A Baby Photo Book
Is the little one too tiny to choose their own gift? A personalised photo book makes the perfect present for dad from baby. So why not create a memento of his best parenting moments? It’s a lovely way to say thank you for pushing through all those sleepless nights and changing his fair share of nappies.
Most new parents have plenty of adorable photos, from those fun family days out to squishy baby photoshoots. But take some time to capture those every day moments too. Keep a look out for photo opportunities like sweet pictures of dad and baby napping together on the sofa, or tiny baby clothes hanging on the washing line. Don’t forget that you can also add videos to your photo book, great for adding footage of baby’s first steps and cute gurgling babbles.
