If you still haven’t got around to asking for something – or buying your lovely dad a thank you – how about these ideas?
The Pub in the Park summer roadshow is in full swing and what better way to thank dad than with an opportunity to drink nice booze, eat delicious food and listen to bands he grew up with?
It’s Bath this weekend where you can see Marco Pierre White and hear Badly Drawn Boy.
Dates after that include: Priory Park, Reigate on 23 – 25 June and Victoria Park, Leamington Spa on 30 June – 2 July. We’ve been to several and they’re always fun.

For the DIY dads, BiGDUG has created the Father’s Day garage bundle. It features a black powder-coated steel shelf that holds up to 265kg per level, a matching black garage workbench, 10 grey recycled part bins for all the nuts and bolts, and a non-slip anti-fatigue mat for adding comfort – all currently with a saving of £20. I’ve already set up my workbench and am trying to get some household chores out of the way.

If your belongings have a mind of their own, the Galaxy SmartTag+ is an ideal present. Users can easily attach it to keys or their bag and use the SmartThings app through their smartphone, tablet or laptop to locate items – even if it is out of range or offline. What’s more, the Bluetooth device also allows travellers to keep an eye on their luggage and valuables whilst on the move – simply attach to your bag and the Bluetooth device allows travellers to keep an eye on their valuables at proximity (120 metres) when moving through airports and resorts.
Er, everyone can remember playing with Scalextric, right? I’m not even a car person and still loved these. Now, you can picture yourself speeding after villains in one of the James Bond cars (like the Goldfinger Ford Mustang above), whizzing along in the Batmobile, or heading Back to the Future in the DeLorean.
You don’t even need to drive them – they look great on the shelf in your home office.
