Are Dads the hardest person to buy for at Christmas? I genuinely don’t think so. From my point of view, as a dad, we’re easy to buy for as long as you make sure that you know our precise requirements, because, we like what we like. But if you’re really struggling then just give us some cash in a card. In fact, don’t even bother with the card. Just some cash to choose our own present. That way, we can be as precise as we like.
I guess this only works if the dad you’re buying for has a beard, but if so, it’d be a great little gift and an excellent stocking filler. We found a cinnamon one from The Old Street Barbour and was really nice! Had me smelling delicious all day!

A very practical gift which would go down well in any circumstance. I love a good rucksack and the Thule bags are no exception. They are built as you’d expect, very well and they are so practical. A good example of this is the small hard case pocket designed for the delicate valuables you take with you; phone, sunglasses etc. They have a whole range, so it’s well worth checking out. I’ll be taking mine skiing for sure! Grab one here at a great price!
