If you are anything like me, you are taking time this week and next week to pick out gifts and make plans for Father’s Day on June 17. For those of you still deciding on the perfect way to celebrate the dads in your lives, then today’s post is just for you. When planning to honor our #1 guys, it’s important to consider things that will make them feel special, as well as things they will enjoy. Last year, my husband celebrated his 1st Father’s Day, so I wanted to make it very memorable for him. He is a shoe fanatic, so I knew I would gift him with a new pair for his collection. I also wanted to get something a little more thoughtful. I absolutely LOVE Shutterfly, and went there to find the perfect gift. After looking at the many options they had to offer, I went with a photobook to highlight some special memories of my husband and son. I was able to personalize the book, and my husband absolutely loved the finished product. Take a look…
