{create} 9 photo gift projects for father's day

With Father's Day just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about how to thank that special man in your life!

Breakfast in bed is a given, but I always seem to agonise over the perfect gift for my Dad and husband, so it was interesting to read the findings from a Father's Day survey by Officeworks of 1000 Australian parents...

+ 1 in 5 women (18%) admitted to spending $100-$249 on Father’s Day gifts, with 4% even splashing out between $250-$500 each year
+ Socks and jocks remained the most common, but least preferred gift given, received by 51% of dads.
+ Meanwhile, the majority of men (92%) actually place the highest value on personal gifts, with a further 93% placing preference on gifts their children contributed to
+ To that point, 76% of dads named photo gifts as their top choice for Father’s day.
+ It’s particularly hard to choose gifts for the dad who has everything – but the research shows that regardless of income, Dad’s still prefer a personalised gift.

So, with that in mind, here's nine of our favourite photo gift projects from the blogosphere that we think would make perfect gifts for Father's Day!
