Gifts For Dad, With Love

Fathers' Day comes to us again this Sunday, 19 June. And if you're in a daze of what to get the main man in your life (because honestly, buying for men can be tricky), we've compiled a few things you could probably grab some inspiration from. Complete any gift with a thoughtful handwritten note and you'd definitely make his day.

Sometimes a briefcase for work is just not enough, especially when his busy lifestyle includes after-work gym sessions. This roomy bag helps to make sure his work essentials and gym attire can fit in one so he doesn’t need to carry multiple bags. It comes with a shoulder strap too so his hands are free to hold on to post-gym shakes and bites.
