My dad Curly is my hero, and I always like to make a fuss of him come Father’s Day. He’s a right little trooper and I count myself very lucky to have a dad that I get on so well with as friends, rather than just as a parent. That being said, he’s a right bugger to buy for! He adorably (slash infuriatingly) never tells me what he wants as he never wants me to “waste” my money on him. In the same vein, he’s also pretty good at treating himself to things he does fancy. So what the hell do I get him? <Insert Love Island voice> CUE THE PERSONALISED GIFTS!
Personalised pressies are perfect for Pops who have it all and give that little something extra to show you care. Cheerz have an amazing selection of personalised photo gifts which are perfect for keeping your favourite memories alive. They’ve put together some special Father’s Day deals – including these gorgeous Framed Photos and Polaroid style Retro Magnets. What’s more they’re only £15 each, so you don’t have to break the bank to treat your dad.
I love this photo of my mum and dad, it was taken a few years ago at an afternoon tea and whilst the tea itself was pretty average we had so much fun sitting out in the sun and catching up. Until now it’s pretty much just seen the light of my Instagram grid (and what a light that is…) I find it’s very rare that I get any photos printed or developed now I use my iPhone or Olympus PEN to take photos, which is why I love Cheerz so much – they give you a really simple and cost effective way to print out your images in a beautiful and high quality way. The wooden Framed Photos are really nice quality and you can choose a variety of sizes and finishes, as well as to use a single image or create a collage (as I did before here).
My dad LOVES art and photography, and finds it great therapy for coping with his Parkinson’s Disease. His usual routine is to take photos of landscapes he likes, or finding scenic pictures in the paper, and then painting his own from this. These Polaroid Retro Magnets are perfect for having a selection of images ready to go, wherever he is, as well as being able to brighten up the radiator in his art studio. He doesn’t get out and about too much these days so I printed out a mix of old snaps from his travels and some scenic pics from my trips as I’m dying for him to paint me something!
The magnets look awesome, I went for the classic white border but again you can choose to customise them with a variety of colours, and even add text to the bottom. Cheerz products are so simple to create – you can either use their website or mobile app, pick out your pictures and upload as many as you like. Then add any customisations and you’re good to go!
I live in Brixton in London. I eat out far too much, am always planning my next trip and have a borderline unhealthy obsession with Harry Potter.
