1. A sweet card

Often it’s the special message or thoughtful little drawing inside a card that turns out to be the best present of all.

We love this fun card from a local Canberra maker, The Hello Boutique.

For the adventure-loving Dad (or just a Dad who’s not keen on carting around a rainbow leopard print nappy bag… speaking from experience here!) why not grab him a backpack this Father’s Day? He can use it for work, sport or play!

Investing in a good quality, classic style backpack will ensure it lasts the distance, which is why we love this one from The North Face.
