- A Favorite Photo Framed
Does Dad have a favorite photo tucked away somewhere? Of when he was a child? Of his parents or grandparents? Of the entire family? If the photo is in poor condition or too small to display, have it digitally restored, enlarged and reprinted on archival paper. Then frame it. When presenting the gift, be sure to ask him to share the story behind the photo.
- Stroll Down Memory Lane
Take a leisurely drive or stroll through the neighborhood where Dad grew up and let him recount his memories. If the whole family comes along, rent a van and hand out a written itinerary with the history and highlights. Enjoy a meal at his favorite neighborhood restaurant to cap off the special day.
- Record His Life Story
For a truly special gift for Dad, capture his life story, family history and memories in a book, on audio tape or in a Video Memoir. You can either do it yourself or hire a professional. Either way, knowing his story will be shared for years to come, is a gift that is certain to move him deeply.
