Father’s Day Gifts 2014

In several categories – see which one you think he would like the most and get it delivered by the weekend!

All are ‘dad gift cliches’ until the end… then we give you a few (we hope) quirky bits to buy…

1) BBQ

2) Bathroom shizzle (you know, grooming and what not…)

3) Tools and Practical Bits

4) Software and gadgets

(Good deal on this one at time of posting!)

5) Quirky (we hope… if you can think of something better, please send us an email and we’ll stick it up here!)

And that’s it for now – presents and gifts for Father’s Day 2014! For the very best hedge cutting tools though, have a look at this post…
