With Father’s Day coming up soon (Sunday September 2nd) it’s time to start thinking about what to get for the special Dad in your life. First thing to decide is what sort of Dad is he – Sporty Dad? Chef Dad? Handyman Dad? Conservative Dad? Cheeky with good sense of humour Dad? Animal Lover Dad? Well I’ve pulled together some suggestions in the hope of providing a little inspiration and making life a bit easier for you.
Sporty Dad? Click on this link to view all male-sports designs: http://www.notecouture.com.au/collection-Sport-48 I’ve got most of them covered - golf (lots of options for golfers), footy, rugby, soccer, fishing, gym, cricket, cycling, sailing and basketball. When organising a To Do List – have fun with the #1 item option – it’s a line of information that’s printed on every page of the to do list – eg: “Go the Swans!” for a Sydney Swans supporter; “Get on the road” for a cyclist, ‘Cast off” for a sailor, “Let loose a lure” for a fisherman.
‘Born to golf’ Mousemat Notepad with #1 item on list ($37 + $1) (Image not shown to size)
Handyman Dad? Check out A few jobs to do - handy as a mousemat notepad he can keep by the computer to write notes or reminders on. Or Please do list - keep a list of things that need to be done around the house on the fridge so everyone can contribute suggestions.
“Please Do List” To Do List with #1 item on list ($18.50 + $1)
Cheeky/Good Sense of Humour Dad? There are some ‘Cheeky Stamps’ – I haven’t got time to read this cr*p, Complete and utter bullsh*t, You are an idiot! - fun as a box of note sheets – hmmm probably best for the home desk and not the office!! Of course there’s lots of tongue-in-cheek designs – Yawning (Nature’s way of letting married men open their mouths!) My wife says I never listen to her … or something like that.

Chef Dad? How about a shopping list using Pots and Pans, or if Dad likes to share his BBQ marinade, a set of recipe cards.

Conservative Dad? Nothing better than some stationery using an elegant typeface .

Animal Lover Dad? Does Dad love nothing better than a walk with the family pooch, or is he more a sit on the couch with the cat curled up in his lap? Lots of cat and dog illustrations (not to mention wild animals, birds, fish and insects) to choose from which will bring a smile to his face.
