Xmas Wishlist : The Perfect Little Gift for Dad!

We already feel the slight stress of Christmas gift shopping sneaking up on us this month.  One question for us comes to mind when shopping, “What am I going to get HIM for Christmas?”

As it is often easy to spoil the children and the women in the family, we never seem to have a lack of ideas.  😉 But finding a gift for a man is at best a difficult question or even worse, a bad headache! In order to avoid offering  the “working” dad yet another tie or the “sporty” dad” yet another pair of trainers, here is a selection from a working, sporty and also hipster dad who is never short on ideas!
