When my step-dad turned 50, I gave him a framed black and white photograph of the venue where he married my mom, a Spanish-style courthouse in Santa Barbara, CA.
I bought it on one of the stock photography sites and had it framed.
Whether or not a photograph is your style or you are more of a graphical poster home, a piece of art that commemorates where you met, or perhaps a pre-parenthood vacation, is a sweet Father’s Day gift.
Here are three different takes on the same place, the Santa Barbara County Courthouse, for example. (All have watermarks because I did not buy the rights to the photos.)
From Art.com, where you’ll find a variety of styles, and options for framing.
From DepositPhotos.com, where you’ll just buy the print, which can be very cheap – like $19 – and have it printed and frame it yourself. (Make sure to purchase a 300 DPI image – that’s meant for print.)
From AllPosters.com which has a huge library and lots of framing options. This may be the easiest option, though what you buy is more like a poster, and less a framed photograph.
Does your partner have a crush on an historical hero or an obsession with a favorite food? These can be subjects of wall art, too. Just find the right room in the house.

We have hundreds of naked people laying in the middle of New York’s Times Square in our bathroom. (Maybe “Keep nudes in the bathroom” is a rule of thumb?)
