What Present can you buy for a dad?

Caricature Present for dad

Throughout the course of running this caricatures from photos business, I’ve been trying to answer one key question for customers: What presents for dad can I buy that he hasn’t got already? Dads can be daunting figures, and we often perceive them as having everything they need already – after all when we turned up our dads had already been around for a while, right? Dads have had time to accumulate most of the possessions which correspond to their direct interests. Except, of course, the yachts and sports cars. But we don’t necessarily want to buy those when a 60th birthday comes around, do we? Presents for dad can be tricky to choose. What could I possibly get him that he hasn’t already got, we ask… A caricature, we reply!

What’s great about creating caricatures from photos for a dad is that you’re not buying a thing that dad wants. You’re doing better than that. You’re representing everything that dad wants and loves. While the most valuable presents for dad can be the most expensive, caricatures from photos can be even more valuable, and produce even more happiness and satisfaction, for the fraction of the cost of say – a bag of golf clubs.



Sure, many people see a caricature as something disposable. When they’re rushed and gimmicky, they definitely are. But a caricature can be so much more than a stretchy face. A caricature from photos of moments shared with friends and family can be a gift worth keeping forever.

A caricature drawn and painted to contain the smallest details and funniest anecdotes of a life shared with your loved ones can genuinely become a favourite possession. So next time you’re struggling to buy dad something, don’t settle for something that will just join the pile of “things that dad has”, give him something that will hang on the wall by his bed and that he’ll look at every day: get him a caricature!
