    Default Christmas presents ideas

    Tickets to anything coming up?
    He's got a kindle but I have absolutely no idea what books he's read and he just borrows books.

    Ah. I bought him a box set of a Tv show he loved and he it's still in the plastic wrapping 2 years later.

    I have no old family photos 😞

    Local pubs don't offer anything like that.

    They live very rural so there's not many options for tickets to something he would like.

    This man will be the death of me lol Dp and my father are horrible to buy for!

He does like a drink but I usually get stuck and buy him a bottle of bourbon or similar.. trying to avoid that this year. Lol.
    He is on a property so yeah not much time. I don't want to buy him clothing. He's not that kind of person. Or a cologne type of person. He's so hard lol
    Any help please?!

    Also don't really have time to buy online. So I'm limited on stores I can buy from.
    My ideas for your Dad. A dart board? Or if he's a property type man and has/into guns, there's a fb page where someone makes .308 bullet pens. They are super cool. I can find the fb page if you want. They are $30 and he sends them out quickly.

    In all honesty I've never seen him use a dart board or even talk about darts lol

    Thy sounds quite cool! He's not like in love with guns. Has a few. But they Facebook page would be good to see! Thanks. He will be here end of next week and taking all the presents back with him for me. I'd love to see them though please 😀

    Your dad sounds as easy to buy for as my old man. I usually stick with wine, or I make up a hamper full of his fave foods (and throw in a bottle of wine) or we take him and my step mother out for lunch and pay. That also includes wine 😂

    Does he like puzzles? Maybe an electronic hand puzzle thing? I have no idea if such a thing even exists. Like a DS with a mind training game or something. Last year I got my dad a Mr Happy mug (an attempt at irony), shortbread (he loves the stuff) a couple of bottles of red and a shirt.

    Which really covers all my ideas for this year. To top it off his birthday is 4 weeks after Xmas. Old men are difficult!!

    In that case I would go super left field for sh!ts and giggles!

    Pizza maker?

    Something gadgety like Apple TV?

    Portable speaker that can be done through Bluetooth?

    Electric Shaver?

    Coffee Machine like Nespresso?

    New wallet?

    Hammock on its own frame?

    Thank you everyone! These are great! Going to chat to dp when he gets home and I'll probably call my step mum and see what she reckons. He's just so damn hard to buy for! All I need is him and my step sister and I've got my side of the family done.

    And if you are completely desperate, I would do a 'money tree'. Cute little potted tree decorated with scratchies.
