If your dad likes to read and is yet to invest in a Kindle, why not treat him to one this Christmas? They’re not as expensive as you would think, and they make great gifts – you can expect to pay between $49 and $179 for a new Kindle.

Does you dad have a favourite alcoholic beverage? Maybe he’s partial to a beer or loves a glass of scotch? Whatever he likes to drink, perhaps a specialty blend of this, could make a fantastic gift.
Whether he’s a whiskey or wine drinker, you should be able to find some unusual flavours online. Look for something that’s a little bit different, but that you know he will love. Wine, beer or scotch as a gift can work well, as long as you choose him something that you know he’ll like.
If he doesn’t drink alcohol, how about getting him a non-alcoholic alternative? You’ll find plenty of places that sell non-alcoholic beers and wines, such as your local supermarket.
If your dad loves to cook, how about getting him some bits and bobs for the kitchen? We don’t mean regular cooking equipment; we’re talking about something a little bit different. Think about the foods he loves making, and think about any gadgets that could make life easier for him.
Does he love making pasta dishes – get him a pasta maker. Is he a fan of smoked meats – get him a meat smoker. Does he love making homemade pizzas – get him a pizza oven. When it comes to choosing the perfect cooking present, there are so many options.
Does your dad love spending time in the backyard? Yes, then why not get him a couple of gardening gifts? Perhaps some new equipment to make keeping his garden looking pretty easier, or maybe a new plant or bush that he’s been wanting? If he loves to garden, any gift that you get him related to gardening, will be a success.
Buying for your dad isn’t always easy, but if you are smart about it, you can find him a lovely gift.
