I could try to put this into words, but I just couldn’t do it justice. Let’s spend 37 seconds watching the reaction that Dads have when they realize that Valentine’s Day is coming…
Dads Should Be Exempt From Valentine’s Day
I was never a huge fan of Valentine’s Day, but at least it made some sense before we had kids. Now that I am a Dad, Valentine’s Day is just an enigma. What are we supposed to do – have a nice romantic dinner with the kids? Buy my wife an intimate outfit and have the kids give it to her? Clearly, Dads should be exempt from buying Valentine’s gifts, but I seem to be in the minority on this one.
Never Fear, Dad Does and Kodak Have Your Back
When Kodak contacted us and said they wanted us to review their 20 Page Valentine’s Themed Photo Book we said cool. Personally, I realized I could upload 20 photos of special places my family has been and have a great Valentine’s Day gift for my wife.
Then I realized, us procrastinating Dads need to stick together. So we told Kodak we also wanted a coupon to giveaway a Photo Book to one of our members, because that is how we roll. Kodak said sure, so now at least two of us will be saved!
What Is The Kodak Photo Book Anyway?
Kodak Gallery has a cool app that very easily allows you to upload your photos, lay them out using a variety of themes and then have the book printed and mailed to you. Here is an example of the interface –
As you can see, we picked the “Love” background, to give a Valentine’s feel – but you can choose from a variety of backgrounds. The Photo Book app uses the Kodak Smart Fit technology and it all works pretty well and it is very easy to use. In less than 15 minutes you can upload 20 photos, do some quick photo layout adjustments and have your Valentine’s Day shopping done!
What Hoops Do I Need to Jump Through To Win the Kodak Photo Book?
None! Most blogs would now tell you how you just need to leave 10 comments, like 15 fan pages and follow 13 people on Twitter to enter the giveaway – not here on Dad Does! All you have to do is Join Us – requires just your email, 100% free and takes about 6 seconds. You see, any member of DadDoes.Com is always entered into any giveaway we do. So, just Join Us once and you are automatically entered in any giveaway we ever do – simple – right?
Already a member? Good for you! Relax, you are in the drawing already. If you win, we just send you an email letting you know.
What Exactly Are We Giving Away and When?
We are giving away a $35 coupon to use at Kodak Gallery. A 20 page Photo Book cost $34.99 – so you can get a free 20 page Photo Book.
Since time is ticking away, we will do this fast. At 6pm EST on Saturday February 5th, 2011 we will randomly pick a winner.
What If I Don’t Win… Then I’m Just Doomed For Valentine’s Day?
I wish we had enough coupons to give out to all of our members, but it turns out Kodak is a for profit company. Still, $35 bucks isn’t bad for a 20 page photo book. They do have Valentine’s based themes, so creating your own Valentine’s Photo Book is fast and easy.

Now, if you will excuse me I need to curl up in the fetal position and start stressing about what to get my wife for Mother’s Day.
