One thing my Dad does quite enjoy is pottering round the garden; he grows a lot of vegetables and quite a few other plants, so something like this RHS Gardening Through The Year guide would be ideal; lots of pictures means there isn't too much reading involved, either! Shower gel is always a safe option and my Dad is a big fan of the manly scents offered by Original Source; the minty ones are super fresh and I imagine the Black Pepper & Chilli would be pretty invigorating, too! Fudge is a failsafe treat in our household and Thorntons are the ultimate in fudge as far as I'm concerned; if it comes with added chocolate, then so much the better! My Dad is very picky with his watches; they have to be just the right size, and he won't wear anything with a leather or fabric strap as they go nasty pretty quickly as he's regularly elbow-deep in water and other places (he's a farmer, I won't say any more!). Though it's sadly outside my budget this year, I think this silicon-strapped Tommy Hilfiger watch would be perfect as it's not too big, and shows the date as well as the time. Aftershave is quite a tricky one to buy as a gift as it's so personal, but my Dad wears it so infrequently that I don't think he notices what it smells like; it's just something you wear when you need to be presentable! I personally like the CKOne Shock range so I'm hoping he would too. Spending a lot of time outdoors means my Dad gets through SPF like there's no tomorrow, so stocking up on that is a good option as far as I can see. Socks are a bit of a cliché but they are one of life's essentials and I do love this Cookie Monster pair with their cheery bright-blue colour. Finally, Dad does enjoy a tipple of an evening, with whiskey being his drink of choice, so if I was really pushing the boat out this Johnnie Walker Limited Edition bottle would go down a treat, I'm sure.
Would your Dad enjoy any of these gifts? Do you have any recommendations for those of us with impossible-to-shop-for Dads? What are you getting your Dad this Father's Day?
