Favourite Father's Day Inscriptions

 In Australia, Father's Day is on the first Sunday in September.

 Father's Day has a different meaning for dads and children of all ages and stages.  For many, it is a chance to show appreciation, love or thanks; for others it is a  chance to remember or reflect.

  Dads can be sentimental blokes too and while a new pair of socks are handy (or should that be footy?) something that has a little thought behind it will always be treasured.

At this time of year your Giddy Aunts are asked to engrave forever words on keepsakes, some heartfelt, some funny, all meaningful.  Bookmarks, Guitar Picks, Pendants, Key rings, Compasses or keepsakes that are useful, or beautiful, or both all become a little more personal with the addition of your words.

Sometimes it can be hard to find just the right words, so we've listed a few below for inspiration!
