If anything is going to spoil Christmas, it’s going to be the hardest man in the world to shop for – your dad!
Do you really want to buy your much-loved dad something awesome this year but aren’t sure what? Listed below are eight great Christmas gift ideas.
Beer Glass: If your dad enjoys a few beers at home each week, he’s probably a bit like mine in that he’s been drinking out of the same receptacle for the last ten years or so. Either that, or he just drinks straight from the tin (IKR).
A Golf Simulator: Dad’s love golf. Don’t ask me why, they just do. Besides getting him some golf trousers (please don’t, they’re horrible!), the second best thing you can get him is a golf simulator.

Shaving Kit: Buying your old man a shaving kit for Christmas last yearcould turn out to be the most useful gift you’ve ever bought him. A shaving kit is ideal if your dad is into personal grooming. But even if he isn’t, it’s still a great gift that will encourage him to finesse his facial hair whenever himself and your mom go out.
The Ultimate Remote Control: Basically, the ultimate remote control is a remote that controls everything, from the DVD player to the TV.
A New Wallet: A wallet is one of those things that all dad’s have. But it’s also one of those things that all dad’s need a new one of. Dad’s are very bad at buying themselves the things they really need. They might need new socks, new sweaters, new jackets, new wallets, new slippers … but they’d rather just ignore all that and buy themselves something ridiculously outlandish that they’ll never use, such as a telescope.
A Safe: They’re big and ugly, and they’re surely for storing exciting gifts inside, as opposed to being an actual gift themselves. A safe is actually a really useful gift that for your dad will serve a very noble purpose. It basically protects all his valuables, including his wallet, bank statements and – knowing dads as well as I do – his season ticket.
Mini Fridge: If your mom has been complaining of late that she can’t keep fitting your dad’s beers into the fridge, get your dad a mini fridge to solve all the problems. And don’t forget to stick a few beers in there for Christmas morning!
Cologne: It isn’t true that all men wear cologne, but it also isn’t true that most men don’t wear it. Every guy likes to smell nice, it’s just that most of the time they’re too lazy to buy themselves cologne in the first place. This isn’t just a gift for your dad – it’s also a gift for your mom, who really wants her man to smell amazing the next time they go out on a date.
