For most of my childhood, Dad’s Day meant heading to the local drugstore to pick up yet another Old Spice Soap-On-A-Rope. Sweet man that he is, my father welcomed each new bar with the same sense of surprise and glee as the last. So, in honour of all the amazing men in our lives, this Sunday is all about celebrating Dad’s very special qualities, and more importantly, big-time pampering. That means: coffee in bed, handmade cards, buttermilk pancakes, and maybe even an afternoon of golf.

And for those looking to slip a little extra something under Dads pillow – we’ve hand-picked a few goodies. Just remember, if all else fails, there’s always soap-on-a-rope!

To say that I am a fan of the Canadian textile designer Virginia Johnson would be a gross understatement. Her entire collection of scarves, bags, bedding, pillows and jackets all carry her signature style of colourful and whimsical prints. Each piece a work of art.

And while this blog post may seem a little premature, given the snow is only just melting — I couldn’t resist. Baby’s First Bikini pants in lightweight cotton and available in a variety of colours and prints.

Who wouldn’t welcome such a stylish sign of spring?
