After a quality carryall for your child that doesn't cost a fortune? Head over to Country Road and take a peek at the the current discounts on kids' backpacks and overnight bags. Usually $59.95, you can save $20 and buy them for just $39.95 right now. Better still, you personalise them if you want!
When it comes to kids' bags — be it handbags, backpacks, overnighters or totes — Country Road is probably my favourite store, because the styles are gorgeous, and the quality is excellent. (My daughter has been using her flower overnighter for years now, and it still looks as great as the day she got it.)
My favourite option for girls is the Flamingo Overnight Bag (now $39.95) - with palms trees and pink flamingos all over it, it couldn't be more perfect for summer getaways. You have the option of adding embroidered text to one side of the bag.
Stand-out sale gear for the boys (which is all actually very gender-neutral) includes the Banana Backpack (perfect for cheeky monkeys!), and the uber-tropical Toucan Overnight Bag. Again, you can personalise both, making them fab gift ideas.
There are plenty more kiddie bargains where these came from, so make sure you check out the whole sale while it lasts. (I'm loving the girls' summer jewellery that's down to just $4.95!)
Don't forget, Click & Collect is FREE, and you can pick it up when it suits you. Standard delivery is $10 or FREE over $100.
