Sunday, 17th June is father’s day! Mark it in your diary!
Father’s day is a special day for me. It’s a chance for my children and I to show their daddy just how much we love and appreciate him. He probably won’t get breakfast in bed though. I mean, for starters, he’s usually awake long before I am, and secondly, he doesn’t eat breakfast! That being said though, I like to make a fuss and spoil him! Whether that be with some lovely, carefully chosen gifts or perhaps a nice meal out at his favourite restaurant. Either way, as long we’re all together on father’s day, that’s all that matters.
Much like myself, my husband does love being treated with some nice presents. He never treats himself, so it’s the one time of year, that we can do it for him! I’ve compiled this gift guide to help give you some ideas and inspiration as to what you could gift that special father in your life.

The North Face Borealis Rage Backpack is ideal for regular walks, commutes, urban adventures and days out with the kids. We took this back pack with us on a recent trip to West Midland Safari Park. It’s a big backpack, and even when packed full of lunch boxes, spare clothes, wet wipes and more, it always felt light weight. The padded straps are great to ensure this backpack is comfortable whether worn for an hour or multiple hours.
I also like that it has a carry handle and clips to help wear the backpack, and keep it nice and tidy. There’s ample storage for all your essentials including gadgets like laptops and tablets and it also features the brand’s FlexVent system which uses injection-moulded shoulder straps and a padded mesh back panel to deliver uncompromised support and enhanced ventilation.
