Golf balls, socks and chocolates for your Very Special Daddy?

Is that what you normally resort to for presents for Daddy on Father’s Day, birthdays and Christmas?  Let’s face it, from the minute they’re born men are harder to buy for than women.  They don’t tend to wear as much jewellery as the ladies and most of them don’t wear make-up.  A memory which sticks in my mind is when we were helping my Mother and Father-in-Law to move house a couple of years ago and seeing boxes upon boxes of golf balls which we had been buying my Father-in-Law every year.  Granted he does lose a few on the golf course but he’s obviously getting better and we all need to think a bit harder about what to buy him as he has enough to open his own shop now!

Copperdot Designs have a nice alternative gift for a Very Special Daddy, which he will be able to keep for years to come and take pride of place in the home.  Every time he looks at it he will be reminded of that someone special who gave it to him and I’ve no doubt a smile will light up his face.

Encased in a handmade frame measuring 35cm x 30cm and surrounded by a cream mount are scrabble letters arranged into a beautiful message.  All of the frames are handmade to order and feature:

Conservation level backboards to ensure the art remains in tip top condition

2.5mm clear float glass

Deep rebate molding to keep the tiles away from the glass

Acid free deep recess mount to avoid discolouration

Nylon coated steel hanging wire attached and ready to hang.

Tape and sealed on the rear.

This piece of art can be yours for just £69, but one of my lucky readers can have one for free!  Check out the details at the end of this post.

If you like this idea but want a different message then bespoke orders may be taken however there will be an additional charge, you will need to contact them for further details.
