Oh, brothers. They make life more interesting, don’t they? Whether you cringe at memories of your brother’s backflip attempts or your heart melts when you remember attending his first garage-band concert, National Brother’s Day is a chance to capture those special (and outrageous) moments.
We’ve collected a list of the best custom gifts for him, so scroll down to find a thoughtful gift for brother, step-brother, or brother-in-law!
When is National Brother’s Day? It’s May 24th.
Then and Now Collage
Select your favorite photograph of you and your brother when you were kids and pair it with another photograph from recent memory. Create a personalized Canvas Print of both pictures so they can be hung side-by-side! This is the perfect gift for little brother or big!
Pro-Tip: Pair this gift with engraved gifts for him. Maybe your brother would love a customized leather wallet or engraved desk topper. These gift ideas for brother (or brother-in-law) can add accent pieces to his office or his home.
The Fun Uncle Photoshoot
If your brother is a proud uncle, he might love the chance to participate in a fun-filled photoshoot with his nieces and nephews. Collect some playful props like silly string, bubbles, balloons, and even face paint. Make a day of it and have fun!
Compile all of the photos into a Hardcover Photo Book to be cherished for years to come. This custom photo gift for brother will make the day special and fun.
Holiday Gift for Brother’s Day
You have probably collected tons of photos from various holidays throughout the years. Gather up all your favorite holiday photos into a Layflat Hardcover Photo Book, that can be displayed as a coffee table book.
Write down your favorite quotes for brother in your custom photo book and caption the pages with treasured sentiments.
Here are a few of our favorite brotherhood quotes:
“Half the time when brothers wrestle, it’s just an excuse to hug each other.” - James Patterson
“My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, ‘You’re tearing up the grass.'” ‘We’re not raising grass,’ Dad would reply. ‘We’re raising boys.’” - Harmon Kellebrew
Big Families, Little Books
If you are planning to give a gift to multiple brothers, consider creating custom Mini Photo Books. Share your favorite memories with your brothers, your parents, and any other family members that would love to treasure those silly, fun brotherly moments. Mini Photo Books come in sets of 3 duplicate books perfect for sharing. This gift will go down in brother’s day history as a fun gift idea for him
Metal Prints Family Portrait
Do you have a favorite photo of you and your siblings all together? Consider creating a custom Metal Print of your family picture. Your brother can choose to hang the print in an outdoor backyard bar, above the fireplace, or at your family’s shared vacation cabin. He might even display the family picture where you and your siblings will be able to enjoy it!
Metal Prints are one of the best custom gifts for guys. They will love sharing a piece of their family history and personality!
