Ah, the never-ending question…what to buy for the dad who has everything?!
For something that lasts longer than chocolate, perhaps even longer than socks, why not give him a skill for life – cooking? You can either book him on to a specific class or buy a gift voucher so he can book himself on a course of his choosing.
