The print company Photobox has conducted an insightful survey on Father’s Day gifts. According to the company, which takes your photos and prints them onto mugs, books, canvasses and more to create personalized gifts, 9/10 people will buy their dad a Father’s Day gift this weekend with 90% believing that a personalized gift is the way to go. The problem remains that dads have an infamous reputation for being harder to buy for, as opposed to mums. In fact, 64% of people say that finding a gift for their dad is more difficult than for their mum.
