Now that we’ve hit June, it’s time to think about a good gift for Dad or Grandpa. If your loved one lives far away, it can limit ideas – but you can share the love and memories with this fantastic Father’s Day Gift that’s Perfect for Long Distance!
We put ours together for my Dad, the kids’ Papa (grandpa). He lives states away, so we don’t get to see each other very often – the kids especially miss him. I thought the perfect gift for his Father’s Day would be a special memory book – but not just ANY photo book, a SET of twins! We got matching 8×8 Softcover photo books from Snapfish – one for Papa in Utah, and one for the kids here in Texas.
It was so fun going through all the past photos of him with the kids – he’s really been there through it all, and has not only been a huge support to me but also a great role model and friend to his grand-kids. I’ll admit, I got a few tears as I went through some from when they were little babies, remember how much he cared and helped and played with them. Him holding my little Iron Man on a swing, snuggling Thor at Disneyland, watching movies with Hulk, and making faces to Black Widow so she’ll smile for the camera.
The fun of getting these matching books is that they can actually look at them TOGETHER – just from a distance 🙂 Papa can go through the pages at the same time the kids do, and Skype or phone call to talk about the amazing memories and good times they have together. I had each of the kids sign at the back inside of Papa’s book, too, making it extra special!
You could even do this idea with SEVERAL of the different products offered at Snapfish – all with fun layouts, tons of embellishments and creative texts. I just chose the photo books because 1. they’re more durable for the kids 2. I could include plenty of photos and 3. photo books are great for telling stories/memories. My dad’s been SUCH a great influence in my kids’ (and my) life, it’s only fitting that he has a way to look back at the wonderful moments they’ve had together!
