Fed up of buying the same boring Father's Day gift year in year out and need some inspiration for that great father’s day gift? Then take a look at our top gift ideas that are something different to the usual socks or shaving accessories.
Something to listen too:
First up, our favorite, a bit of technology that won’t be too complicated and is sure to keep him entertained. An audiobook! Give a gift that will really speak to them and isn’t a TV!
There are several websites offering Audiobooks but we like audiobooks.com. It’s very simple to use. First, you will buy them a ‘Gift Subscription’, this can range from a 1 month to 12-month subscription – much like buying a gift voucher. This gives them one free book a month, but if one book isn't enough, you can buy additional credits at any time.
Then you simply download the app onto their device and they can choose from more than 100,000 titles including crime, comedy, biographies, sci-fi and many more so he’s sure to find something interesting to listen to.
If he's into his technology this next gift could be very useful. An iBed. It allows you to use your iPad in bed, on the sofa, on a plane or anywhere you desire. Filled with microbeads for added comfort, the tray features a slot to place your tablet and has a non-slip surface great for sitting your drinks and plates on. Functional and stylish, it's the perfect gift for any iPad owner.
Dodo Book of Garden Cuttings:
If gardening is more his thing, then check out The Dodo Book of Garden Cuttings this will organise his gardening habits once and for all with this ultimate garden organiser. It has a durable wipe-clean cover to protect your horticultural inspirations from mud, mulch, and manure. Inside it’s divided into ten easy-to-use sections with where-to-do-what and what-to-do-when. If his potting shed looks more like a compost heap and his seeds are well and truly scattered, then he probably needs the Dodo Book of Garden Cuttings.
How about something tasty:
