Gifting the Dad who has everything
We know buying gifts for men is difficult — it’s usually because they already have all the essentials, they have bought whatever they want, and what they have not bought is too much of a luxury!
For Father’s Day (18th of June, next Sunday — by the way), we say — make it, bake it or go for it, he sure is worthy of a gift that is out of this world. Therefore, we’ve rounded up our top picks for the most sophisticated of dads to the sportiest of them.
