A Few Fancy Father's Day Gift Ideas

My brothers and I are going in for my dad's gifts and this year I've decided not add on any freestyle element after a number of recent, let's just say 'Pinterest fails' in the DIY gift-giving department.

Don't forget it's Father's Day this Sunday - and whether you're clubbing together with siblings or going solo on the gift-giving, it's always nice to make your Dad feel appreciated.

My brothers and I are going in for my dad's gifts and this year I've decided not add on any freestyle element after a number of recent, let's just say 'Pinterest fails' in the DIY gift-giving department. Those sumptuous pictures of chocolate-coated strawberry towers may look beautifully simple but a) they're not, and b) try getting them to survive a cross-county cab journey...

Anyway, here are a few ideas for fancypants presents you can treat your old man to, to say thanks for all those free taxi rides, pearls of wisdom and interest-free loans.

PS. I hope you've all discovered the joys of Click + Collect - order from a number of retailers before 4pm, collect the next day from your choice of collection point - there are loads all across the UK. You can return stuff that way too - I just sent back some pieces I'd (over)ordered and it literally took 2 minutes in my local Budgens one evening. It's AWESOME.
