WHAT can you get for the dad who has it all? For those close to their dads, you might spend days making a heartfelt gift from scratch. But what about a gift for the man who has everything and you don’t really know what to get?
Good news! This year you have a wonderful selection of pricey presents to chose from. Why not invest in a practical shoehorn from Fortnum and Mason? It’s been jazzed up with a handle made from the antlers of a stag, a shoe-in at £70.
Or, if pater is getting long in the tooth, help him stand tall with a fancy walking cane, topped with a crystal ball for £198. Perfect for Daddy’s upcoming performance in the musical “Top Hat”.
For the geeky dad, there’s the Levitating Waters “art installation”; a box that suspends water in mid-air. It’s great for those days when watching a dripping tap just isn’t enough. Best £135 you’ll ever spend.
Finally, you can never go wrong with a good watch. They say it’s the thought that counts, but they also say if you’re out of ideas throw money at the problem. Enter the gold Apple Watch.
It has the same power and storage as the 42mm leather strap model, priced at £599, but this masterpiece earns it’s £12,000 price tag with a case made of 18-carat gold.
