OMG how good is my photoshopping?! NOT very!  (I know there are lots of graphic designers reading so please forgive the jaggedy edges! :)

But, what I lack in Photoshop skills I hope I can make up for with great gift ideas!?  Most of these items are available online or over the phone and can be shipped anywhere in Australia (and some internationally).

I can’t take the credit for all these myself though… My lovely occasional helper / research assistant Miriam McGarry helped find many of the fab Father Day gift ideas here! The Australian boutique beer pack I think is particularly genius, and I most certainly wouldn’t have come up with that one on my own!  Nice one Miriam!

(Father’s Day in Australia is 2 weeks away – next Sunday September 5th.  I am not sure if it is the same all over the world…?!  But anyway.)
