Custom Gift Ideas for Mother’s and Father’s Day

It is time to honor those important persons in your life, your mom and dad.  Let us help you get both your online and brick and mortar stores ready for the holiday with some inspiration.

 T-Shirts with A Photograph

With no minimums on the UltraColor Max DTF, full color transfers, shirts with a photograph are the perfect gift.    Some ideas are photos of the kids, or grandkids, or even of a special place you have visited together.    You can do a print for about $5, apply with your heat press to a $3 shirt and easily sell for $25!

Photographs are uploaded just like any other art.   In the design center, Easy View, select upload art.    Add your photo to the artboard.   Add text or clip art as needed and submit your order.

Shirts for the Sports Mom or Dad

This might be a great item to sell to a team or at a sports tournament.    Any mom or dad of an athlete knows how much time is spend at the field.   We have customizable templates in Easy View ready to add a team name or team color.     Since you are targeting a group, Goof Proof might be your best choice here since you will be using one color ink and ordering at least 18.   If you need a smaller quantity, UltraColor Max will work.

This chart will help you choose the best product for your Mom or Dad gift.

Bundled Kits

What gardener can resist a gardening apron, hat and shirt?

These we bundled in a gift box for the mom or grandma that is a gardener.  The tote, cap and apron all used our best selling Goof Proof transfer.    Add a pack of seeds and a shovel and you have a gift that could sell for$75, creating about $35 in profit.


Other Custom Shirt Ideas

This is one of my favorites and is so easy to create and order.  Add the kids’ names to our heart clip art, x30L-14.  Be sure to add a show thru outline to each to make the name more readable and separate from the heart.

Other Gift Ideas

Heat printing is not just for shirts.    Give Dad a set of can coolers, or a personalized grill mitt.   Both of these items cost you less than a $1 and are so fun with a message just for Dad.

Print a picnic blanket and include a gift card from a local deli to have a fun family outing.

Is Dad a golfer, do a fun golf towel.

Or try a tote bag for mom.
