Father’s day gift ideas, clockwise from top left - Paul Smith for Stelton bowls at Corporate Culture (starting at AU$50.00), handmade watch movement cufflinks from Etsy seller OnTheBead (US$66.20), Armagnac Tryst original vintage poster from Galerie Montmartre (25cm x 33xm – AU$200.00), Australian Boutique Beer Pack from the International Beer Shop (AU$53.99), TOCA Clock from Via Alley (AU$250.00), Lamy Swift Moroccan refillable rollerball pen from Notemaker (AU$99.00), Leatherman Blast Black Multitool from Tip Top Shop (AU$125.00), Grand Designs series 7 DVD from the ABC shop (AU$37.99), Thomas Paul Tobacco Pouch from Safari Living (AU$13.00), BYO Coffee Cups from HookTurn Industries ($10.95 – disclaimer – you guys KNOW these are my Mum’s coffee cups – forgive me! ), 3-month Coffee Club Subscription from Market Lane (AU$125.00), ‘Sparrow’ Australian kangaroo  leather wallet from Tailfeather (AU$99.00), Fu-Magnum moustache mugs from Third Drawer Down (AU$27.00)

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.)

    So nice to see a collection of items that supposes men have taste, class, like quality and actually have interests rather than just assuming they like sport. Bravo Miriam and Lucy.
