If you're looking for something unique to get dad for Father's Day, how about a picture of the kids on a dog tag necklace? It's 'manly' while still sentimental, and it's definitely a cool idea.
I've mentioned before that my daughter is artsy, and that spills over into everything that she does. It comes very easily to her, which is a marvel to me, because I do not have her talent. About a year ago she designed a picture of herself that I thought was different, in a good way. She's standing on a road, with leaves on either side of her, and she raised a foot to the upper part of her leg, touching her temples on either side, and then photo filtered it so it looked almost ethereal. The end result was memorable, as are most things that she does. I saved that picture, knowing I wanted to do something special with it some day. Well that day has now come.
I turned the photo in to Pictures on Gold (via an e-mail attachment), a company that engraves your picture right onto a necklace, which can be a locket (silver or gold), or specialty item such as this dog tag. I think it's a perfect gift idea for dad! This photo is meant to be lighter, that's the way it was made. You can get a vivid print too, if you like (see below). The photo you send prints the way it looks (if it's faded, it prints that way of course, and likewise your clear photos will be brilliant). I honestly couldn't be happier with the end results. This is our second time ordering from this company (we ordered a locket once upon a time too), and they are absolutely stellar for quality and good looks. I highly recommend them any time of year, but most especially right now, for creating a unique present for Father's Day.
