Father’s Day is quickly approaching, and while this year has thrown many curveballs, that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate our dads and father figures like we normally would. A father’s love is so beautiful, and we can’t let this holiday pass by without letting the important men in our lives know just how invaluable they are!
While you could just order Dad a gift online, why not surprise him with something a little more heartfelt?
A homemade gift can be great for Father’s Day, and incorporating home videos and photos from the past can make it even more special. We’ve compiled a list of some wonderful, homemade, nostalgic gifts that your dad and other father figures will love and that will bring up sweet memories.

Create a slideshow or video of home movies and pictures.
If you are tech savvy, use those skills to make a video or slideshow for your dad. Gather lots of pictures and home movies from over the years and get them digitized through Southtree.
