A witty and affectionate dad poem about fathers and the things they do for us. Can be personalised!
Our funny and heartfelt A4 dad print makes the perfect gift for fathers - whether it's for a birthday, christmas, father's day or even a new parent.
Whether he's a stubbly snorer, a spider remover or a terrible teaser, everyone will recognise the hero described in 'What is a Dad?'
The print comes unframed, and is presented smartly in cellophane with backing board behind.
The colour choice is: red, blue or taupe on white card, or black font on brown card.
For an additional fee, you are welcome to add a short message (max 8 words) at the bottom of the poem.
We would be happy to frame the print for you using one of our three white wooden custom-made frames. We offer Smooth Flat White, Stepped Grained White, Slim Black (brown card only).
The text reads:
What is a Dad?
A feeder, a changer, a safeguard from danger
A stubbly snorer, an offspring adorer
A tent rigger & sandcastle digger
A storybook reader, a motorway speeder
A bonfire lighter & ‘dad joke’ reciter
A cuddly tickler, rarely a stickler
A room decorator, a shopping trip hater
A spider remover, allergic to hoover
A carer, a sharer & rarely a glarer
A butler & porter, a coach & supporter
A gadget admirer, a BBQ firer
A lender, a mender, a knightly defender
A grower, a mower, an everything knower
A bottle uncorker, a supper-time talker
A game inventor, role model & mentor
A bin putter-outer & sometimes a shouter
A free taxi driver, a slipper of fiver
A party enhancer, embarrassing dancer
A contest decider, a lecture provider
A terrible teaser & all round good geezer
That’s what makes a Dad!
