  • Is he a collector? Maybe you can have something engraved for him (belt buckle, clock, pocket watch). I think pictures are always nice too, pics of the family in a nice frame. What about a blanket/throw for his sofa with a pic of the family on it? Good luck!!!

  • iv given him pictures pretty much all the ones i had of me growing up because he missed out on so much...which was not at all his fault..very tough curcumstances...i think i spelled that right..iv been thinking about the dad ring i think he would really like that..he does love nascar but im sure he has plenty of that stuff

  • i was going to suggest the pictures as well. i was going to actually suggest a scrapbook, highlighting the important occasions in your life. (graduation, wedding, birth of babies) i'd bet money that he wants nothing from you, that spending time with your and your family is more than enough of a present for him.

  • PERSONALIZED gifts are the best! You can go to and personalize a gift with your our photo, a family photo etc... it is pretty cool! Use CM ID number 71695934 when ordering... and if you need help PM me, I would love to help!
