What dad really wants for Father’s Day

fathersday01

Your dad’s no mug, so please don’t buy him another one this year. The men here at Understanding Boys would prefer their sons take them out for a coffee and give them the gift of some father/son time instead. But if you still want to spoil dad with a cool present, check out our gift guide for some guaranteed father-friendly inspo*.

 

Darth Vader personalised cufflinks

Channel your inner Luke (and Leia). These personalised cufflinks will make dad feel like a lord and will ensure he doesn’t go over to the dark side this Father’s Day.

WALL-E LEGO

Robots and LEGO. There isn’t much that can go wrong. WALL-E moves, grips, rolls and looks awesome enough to go straight to the pool room. And best of all, it’s something you and dad can build together.
