{create} 9 photo gift projects for father's day

With Father's Day just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about how to thank that special man in your life!

Breakfast in bed is a given, but I always seem to agonise over the perfect gift for my Dad and husband, so it was interesting to read the findings from a Father's Day survey by Officeworks of 1000 Australian parents...

+ 1 in 5 women (18%) admitted to spending $100-$249 on Father’s Day gifts, with 4% even splashing out between $250-$500 each year
+ Socks and jocks remained the most common, but least preferred gift given, received by 51% of dads.
+ Meanwhile, the majority of men (92%) actually place the highest value on personal gifts, with a further 93% placing preference on gifts their children contributed to
+ To that point, 76% of dads named photo gifts as their top choice for Father’s day.
+ It’s particularly hard to choose gifts for the dad who has everything – but the research shows that regardless of income, Dad’s still prefer a personalised gift.

So, with that in mind, here's nine of our favourite photo gift projects from the blogosphere that we think would make perfect gifts for Father's Day!
1. sweet block puzzle project found at ehow
2. I love these hand-coloured photos by A Beautiful Mess
3. get those snaps out of your phone and onto your wall with this fab instagram wall art project by The Crafted Life
4. this is the sweetest embroidered photo project by lovely indeed
5. triangle blocks by historia de casa - this tutorial is in Portugese but too lovely not to include! Just click the google translate button!
6. adorable instagram box of photos by damask love
7. learn how to transfer photos on to wood to create this stylish artwork with ehow
8. these photo coasters - with step-by-step photoshop instructions - would look super cute with photos of the kids! by blue i style
9. shadow photo tutorial by discount queens - adorable!

Or, if you don't have time to create a personalised gift yourself...
... pop into Officeworks to create photo gifts using their in store Kodak Picture Kiosks. Here's some of our favourites...
There are lots of  personalised gifts to choose from, including calendars(1), keyrings(2), coasters(3), playing cards(4), fridge photos(5) and hardwood photoblocks(6) to help capture special moments with dad.

Orders take ten days from start to finish, so pop to your local Officeworks today to get your gift in time for Father’s Day!

What are you doing for your dad this Father's Day?
