Gifts that’ll make your father’s day

Dads – as a species – are notoriously tricky to buy for. On top of that, Father’s Day creeps up on us every year meaning more often than not, in a blind panic, we settle for a hastily bought bottle of alcohol and a card and pray he likes it. This year, however, be different. Choose one of these hand-picked gifts from our thoughtful guide and be (un)surprised by how much he loves it.
