Dads are notoriously difficult to buy for. You’ve spent most of November digging for hints but so far the results have been less than helpful. Answers include, “some peace and quiet would be nice!”, “a winning lottery ticket” and the classic “my two front teeth”. To give you a helping hand we’ve had a hunt around and come up with a list of gifts that Dad is sure to love this Christmas. Forget the socks this year and give one of these a try!
Bowers & Wilkins are well know in the audio industry for their premium build quality and excellent sound quality. The PX7 headphones keep true to the companies brilliant reputation and offer a high-end listening experience you won’t find in many other headphones. With built in Bluetooth for wireless listening and impressive noise cancelling; these PX7’s aren’t short of great features. The noise cancellation is switchable between three modes that allow the user to control how much of the outside world they want to let in, which makes these headphones pretty versatile. No matter what style of music your Dad is into, you can rest assured it will sound great on these phenomenal wireless headphones.
Did you know the iconic crocodile logo commonly found on Lacoste shirts is inspired by a nickname journalists gave René Lacoste for his tenacity on the tennis court? After acquiring the name back in the 1923, René quickly began embroiling the crocodile into all his polo shirts and the company continue to do so today. If you think Dad will enjoy a quality piece of clothing with timeless style and a great original story, then a polo shirt from Lacoste will tick a lot of boxes. There’s over 40 colours available in store to choose from, so you won’t be short of options.
Self care items are something most Dads rarely remember to buy for themselves but always appreciate, which is why you won’t go wrong with this skincare set by Bulldog. Created using amazing natural ingredients like aloe vera, camellia oil and green tea; you can rest assured you’re getting the good stuff! At only £10, this gift set is a perfect stocking filler. Stop by Debenhams once lockdown lifts to get yours.
Depending how old you are, it’s probably quite likely that Dad has treated you to the latest phone bundled with a pretty generous allowance for texts and minutes. Now you’re all grown up, why not return the favour? Most Dads love a bit of tech and Apple’s FaceTime feature is still one of the best ways to catch up when you can’t physically meet up. The iPhone 12 is Apple’s best phone yet and comes packed with handy build in apps and features. The camera is perfect for video calls and the operating system runs silky smooth. If you’re liking the sound of this idea then you’ll want to head to the Three Store on Albert Street as they currently have some very affordable contract options available right now. The lowest price we’ve seen so far is just £23 a month!
