However, it also provides a beautiful opportunity to honour and remember your dad, keeping his spirit alive in your heart. Here are some thoughtful ways to cherish his memory and navigate this special day.

1. Personalised Jewellery

One deeply meaningful way to keep your dad close is by wearing a piece of jewellery that holds his memory. Consider having his photo or a piece of his handwriting engraved onto an item such as a necklace, bracelet, or ring. This personalised piece can serve as a comforting keepsake that you can carry with you wherever you go.

  • Photo Engraving: Select a favourite photo of your dad and find a jeweller who specialises in photo engraving. Many online stores offer customisation options where you can upload the photo and choose the type of jewellery you want.

  • Handwriting Engraving: If you have a card or letter with your dad’s handwriting, you can scan it and have it engraved onto a piece of jewelry. This can be particularly touching, as it captures a personal aspect of your dad’s presence.
