    He saw a clock in Matalan he wants for his kitchen so bought it and told me it's my Christmas present to him if I just give him the money. How special...

    Got him a coat. He'd wear the same coat for 20 years if it wasn't for birthdays and Christmas.

    Actually i do think this is brilliant: your parents are going to be very amused. Brut...oh no...Brut....you have no idea how much it was dreaded at discos and how popular it was!!!!

    Some headphones that when you wear them they look like Frankenstein's monster's bolts, a katana letter opener and some Japanese sweets.
    That sounds awesome! Where from? (for me)

    I've got my dad some Prada aftershave, Parkinsons book, Morcambe & Wise DVD Xmas Special because every year he moan Christmas isn't the same without Morcambe & Wise! A cardigan, a Phil Collins CD and an Oor Wullie annual.

    i have the same problem every year!
    my dad doesn't wear aftershave, won't let me buy him socks, gets all his books from the library, isn't into fancy food and is just generally fussy. he always says 'nothing' to when i ask him what he wants. he bought himself a charger for the car (what a thrill). what do i get the pickiest person ever?

    Jeremy Clarkson DVD and book probably.

    I may also buy him a larger tank for a KTM 300EXC for when he does enduro races... But that's over £100 so will only do that if i can team up with others...

    An RC helicopter, a proper hobby one, i got him one of the cheaper toy ones last year and he loved it.

    My dad's easy to buy for, anything gadget related :P
