“DEAR DAD” FROM LULU.COM
June 18th 2009 [Raleigh, NC] – While many people are buying soap-on-a-rope and shopping for ties for Father’s Day, Lulu.com, the premiere digital marketplace for creative content, suggests that you do a little more for dad come June 21st.
Lulu.com’s innovative web-studio makes it fun and easy to create something really special for dear old dad. Sometimes it can be hard to know what to make, especially when one out of every three (35.5%) American children live apart from their fathers (according to a 2008 US Census Bureau report). Think of what makes him happy or simply ask if you don’t know. With items like customized photo books with text (currently 25% off with coupon through June 21st), personalized cards and calendars, and Lulu’s new wallet-sized mini-books (perfect for anywhere photos or the top-10 things he has taught you/that you love him for), Lulu has something for everybody. You can use Lulu’s free storefront to share your creation with your whole family electronically or in print.
Don’t have the writer’s bug in you? Lulu.com features over 1.1 million titles from authors in 35 categories including things for dad like sports and adventure. Call to mind playing catch with your dad with Dugout Wisdom: Life Lessons From Baseball from author and founder of The Migala Report, Dan Migala. Here readers will find first person accounts from baseball greats like Wade Boggs, Nolan Ryan, Ryne Sandberg and many more. “Each legend opened up their heart and shared a tale with me in the same way a grandparent would with their grandchildren,” said Migala. “I invite everyone to sit at the feet of the greats of the game and learn about passion, perseverance and fate through the hearts of these baseball legends.” You can even personalize the cover.
Bonding with a father figure statistically generates better levels of confidence, self-esteem, independence and maturity within a son or daughter while giving the father a better sense of self and empathy according to the Father’s and Families Network. So reach out and show dad how much he means to you this Father’s Day with Lulu.com.
