June 18th, go mark it in your calendars because Father’s Day is fast approaching and we certainly do not want to miss it.
Dads play such an important role in our lives from teaching us how to ride a bike all the way to showing us how to drive, they offer us tea and a biccie when we’re down without asking too many questions and support us in everything we do.
While it is not always easy to pick out a present for the main men in our lives, it is important to show them how much we appreciate them. No matter who your father figure is there is a gift suitable for everyone.
We’ve popped together some of our favourite finds to help you celebrate the father figures in our lives this weekend.
