Father's day is just days away and if you're like me you'll be struggling to think of something to get your dad. My lovely dad usually tells me not to bother getting him anything and is quite happy with a simple box of chocolates! To make things even trickier for me, my dad's birthday is always in the same week as Father's day which means I have to think of another gift for him which is really hard when he has everything he needs and has just received lots of presents a few days earlier.
Of course I always ignore his 'don't get me anything' request and buy him a few treats but each year I struggle to think of something new. This year I've been more organised and have been scouring the internet for some inspiration. Here are some ideas which might just help to make your dad's day...

Personalised Football Team Newspaper Book
A great gift for any football mad dad is this newspaper book which can be personalised so the articles feature your dad's favourite team. Using actual newspaper reports the books covers the history of your chosen club from the 1900s through to more recent times. Your dad can read all about the highs and lows of his favourite clubs history. You can choose your cover, name and team so this will be a really personal gift for your dad.
Speedo Wall Clock
Any car enthusiast will appreciate this stylish clock which is based on the classic speedometer from the 1960's. I really like the retro feel of the clock and I love all the detail that has gone into it. I know my dad would love this as he's the biggest car enthusiast around. There are also other speedo clock designs available from meandmycar.co.uk so you can choose your dad's favourite classic.
