Remember to do something for your father that shows you know and appreciate him because that is what Dad really wants for Father's Day and his birthday. If you want to add a small physical gift, Hallmark, who made its first Father's Day card in the 1920s, now presents some wonderful and affordable gift ideas for Dad.

On this page you will find gathered together some great Hallmark suggestions for Father's Day or any other Dad occasion including Hallmark's recordable picture frame and Dad and Me storybook, dad themed coffee mugs and t-shirts, an exclusive Hallmark Gold Crown and Ty Beanie Baby teddy bear, a certificate of achievement and a dad-friendly Hallmark movie choice. I am sure that you will find something here that is within your budget AND perfect for your Dad.

Hallmark Recordable Picture Frame

Hallmark's Recordable Picture Frame

Filled with a picture of Dad's team, whether that is his sports team or Mom and the kids.

Hallmark's Memory Keeping Recordable Frame reads, "Life makes the best story." It allows you and/or your children to record, in brief, the story of the picture in the frame. Definitely a gift that can be packed full of love in more ways than one.

Blogger Everything Mom shares a story about giving this picture frame to her husband who travels quite a bit. She chose a picture of the whole family on vacation in Hawaii and all three of the children recorded a sentence about the trip, one that was important in relationship to the particular child and to their father and that would bring back pleasant memories. She expected her husband to be pleased with the framed picture of their family, but she did not expect him to cry. Hallmark's Recordable Picture Frame is, apparently, a gift that can make grown men cry.

Hallmark's Safe Harbor Movie (2009)

Starring Treat Williams, Nancy Travis, Reiley McClendon, Myra Turley, Cameron Monaghan

Safe Harbor is based on the true story of a married couple who are set to retire and spend their retirement on their sailboat. However, before they manage to leave, a friend asks them to look after two teenagers who have been sentenced to juvenile hall. The hall is at capacity and unable to take them in and when it is suggested that the teen boys be put to work getting the boat ready for its trip, the couple agrees. Soon they find themselves with four boys.

The situation brings a set of challenges from attitude to fire but, in the end, there are positive changes in all four boys who decide they do not want to break up their newly created 'family.' The couple questions their own situation, their sailing trip, their choice not to have children and the future.

      Especially thankful for my Dad this year, he's survived some health traumas and almost losing him really made me all that more grateful to have him. I'd give him something for his RV this year for Father's Day.

      It's always difficult for me to think of what to give my Dad, because he doesn't really WANT anything - but he is the absolute best father a daughter could have. Sometimes I just write my thoughts about how thankful I am to have been brought up by a Dad who encouraged and listened to me. He has been a guiding force my entire life, and I can't think of any gift that could really honor him the way he should be honored... By the way, that movie "Safe Harbor" looks really good! :)

      I like the recordable story book for dad. Seems there aren't nearly as many of that type of gift for dads as there are for moms. Love the Star Wars mug!

      Great collection of Dad gifts! We tend to focus on Mom and forget how very important good dad's are in our lives. I'm thinking of writing my dad a letter this year with my memories of him...that will require some forethought, but I think he'll like it.

      Super selection of gifts for Dad! Loved the story about the Hallmark frame. I gave my partner a digital frame last Christmas as he also travels a lot for work and I wanted him to have pics of his family with him. Lovely lens!
