Choose an album

Go to the archives
Collect photos and memorabilia associated with your father. Divide the items into themed categories to make a variety of unique pages.
Stock up on stock
Buy cardstock to use as frames for your pictures. Pick up a few different styles, so they pop against the pages.

Write a title on the cover of your memory album and decorate it using a particularly meaningful or funny photo. Then tie a ribbon around the album, give it to your dad, and bask in his adoration.
