    I'm pretty sure there's a dad section in M&S, go look there.
    You'll probably end up buying him a tie or socks :p:

    I don't know yet. He's very into cookery, but I get him stuff for that quite a lot, so I feel I should buy him something different this year. I may get him a book, although he tends to get quite a lot of those. I've just had an idea, some sheet music! *Goes off to search online*

    Silver gaffa tape. He keeps on bashing his car up :rolleyes: so I'm going to label the tape as 'plasters for your car'.

    I've got him some books, sheet music (which I will probably play more than him), a CD with Debussy recordings on it, little random things. He likes gardening, music, history etc so it's really easy to buy for him.

    Some headphones that when you wear them they look like Frankenstein's monster's bolts, a katana letter opener and some Japanese sweets.
