With Father's Day fast approaching now is the ideal time to pick up the perfect pressies for Dad, but I'm sure with the same chocolates and novelty socks each year it can become a little bit boring!
Selecting something to suit dad's taste can be hard but working around their personality and hobbies can hopefully help you choose a gift that he will love....
Outdoors and Adventure Dad
This is definitely the Mr. He has driven tanks, bungee jumped and loves paintballing so a gift experience day is always a hit. With indoor skydiving, hot air-ballooning and so much more there is something new for him to try each year - something he will never forget.
Sports Mad Dad
If dad is a sports fan you can purchase some great themed photo upload cards and if your budget doesn't stretch to match tickets, some memorabilia of his favourite team will go down well. For something more fun and hands on a remote control car or bath basketball might be the answer.
My dad loves his beer and chocolate but giving those as a gift can be a little predictable. Last year I sent him on a brewery tour where he was able to try different products and he really enjoyed it - perhaps a cooking lesson, a meal out or a hamper of goodies will be this years option!
Gadget and Gizmo Dad
The Mr loves the latest technology whether it's for the desk or his pocket so quirky toys are ideal for him like a movie maker set, a parking timer or Robo Fish, which you can get from Hawkin’s Bazaar. They have lots of bizarre gifts and gadgets for men.
Whether he likes his Converse or designer shirts a personalised gift can go well with his stylish dress sense. Fingerprint cuff links, footprint dog tags and the children's artwork put onto chains add a special touch to a present he can wear.
What will you be getting dad this Father's Day?
