21 Father’s Day messages to personalise Dad’s gift

The best job I ever had: being a dad So, you’ve got the gift, the card. You only have to write a nice Father’s Day personal message and you’ll be all set. Or, you want to make your Dad’s gift extra special this year, and you’ve decided on a personalised gift, like a map of the stars over your birth place, to remind your Dad of the moment when he became a Dad for the first time, or was a father again..

Personalised gifts are very cool, extremely thoughtful, often touching... and a tad bit more complicated than regular non-personalised gifts. Because, well, for a gift to be personal, someone has to put in the personal touch. And that someone might be as inspired as Shakespeare, or a bit short of ideas. So just in case you fall in the second category, here are some message ideas to help. Fell free to mix and match.
