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 π
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!

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 π
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!
Something gadgety like Apple TV?
Portable speaker that can be done through Bluetooth?
Coffee Machine like Nespresso?
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.
