Create a Unique Father's Day Gift with Monogram Maker.

This week marks 30 years since the day I met the man who went on to be my beloved husband and dad to our seven children. With Father's Day coming up what do you get the father figure in your life which doesn't cost the earth? Here's an idea - how about a unique monogram? (AD)

Let's face it, it's hard enough to buy gifts for guys especially if, like us, you have a tight budget choices can be rather limited for blokes who may not be enthused at yet another pair of comedy socks.

Whatever age the special guy in your life might be, they surely cannot fail to be impressed by the fact that you have thought about them enough to create a beautiful, exclusive monogram for them. You don't even need to leave the comfort of your own home or brave the shops. You can use a monogram app to create a lasting tribute to your loved one using their initials in a cool custom design.

To be honest I thought Father's Day was a bit of a made up festival, created to sell cards and gifts. I know the background to Mother's Day or to give it its traditional name, Mothering Sunday but did you know that, according to Wikipedia, Father's Day in some form dates back many centuries.

As an aside, let me share a slightly embarrassing Father's Day story from a few years ago.

I sent a loving text to my stepdad living out in Cyprus signed off with plenty of kisses. Imagine my shock and red face when my neighbour who shared the same very common Welsh first and last names replied saying he didn't think he deserved such gratitude and affection.

The moral of the story - always double check you are sending your most private messages to the right person!

Anyway, back to my tip on creating a personal monogram for the main man on Father's Day. Sounds complicated? Actually with the monogram maker from Design Bundles, it could not be easier following simple step by step instructions to choose and add a frame and background from the many options.

Want inspiration? There's a gallery area with lots of monograms to scroll through. It seems people use this fantastic resource to create monograms for weddings, baptisms, birthdays, websites, stationary, business cards and more.

Once created you can save your monogram in a variety of file types and in a choice of file resolutions.

You could create a beautiful one-off monogrammed card or framed piece of art or even get it printed onto a polo shirt or a mug.

If you like the idea of creating a monogram for your own personal use or business, you'll be glad to learn that many of the resources are completely free, others cost less than a takeout coffee especially if you choose one of the curated design bundles, and all are licensed for commercial use.
