Today I wanted to share with you how to use my Christmas Family Traditions Poster Maker to make an amazing frugal and free Fathers Day Gift.
If the Dad in your life is anything like Mr Frugal, he’ll pretty much buy himself the things he needs as and when he needs them and don’t really want ‘stuff’ for the sake of giving a gift on Fathers Day.
In the past, we’ve always felt like we needed to buy him something so we’ve ended up buying something just for the sake of it and although, he’s always grateful for whatever we give him I know he would have quite happily not had a gift.
So this year, we’re not going to buy him anything – we’re going to make him something super personal and frame it using a cheapish frame from Ikea and hopefully, he’ll love it.
We made the poster using our completely free Christmas Family Traditions Poster Maker to make a Father’s Day poster. This isn’t the one we’re making for him because (a) I don’t want to ruin the surprise and (b) half of the things on ours are family jokes that no-one but us will get. 😉
How to make your Amazing FREE Fathers Day gift!
The poster maker tool is super easy to use – you just select the colour scheme you want from the ones available and then add your text in the boxes. I’d recommend a mix of very short 2-3 word phrases and slightly longer ones so you get the effect of the different blocks of text as you can see in my example below:
You can amend and download this as many times as you want to get it perfect so if you find after the first attempt that you need to change the colours, add more lines or even move the text about then that’s no problem at all. Just play about and download as many as you want until you get the perfect Fathers Day Gift for the man in your life. 😉
I think he’s going to love our gift this year especially when we tell him what part two of his gift is going to be!
We’re going to give him what we think would be his perfect day – breakfast in bed, a couple of hours out with me and the kids (maybe a trip to Whitby) followed by Sunday lunch and then some time on his PS4.
I think this year’s Fathers Day might be his best yet!
