My family do secret santa and i got my dad. £100 budget and i got a hubble space book and a book on Burma already so what else can i get for £60?
He has expensive taste so can't get the usual wash bag, shaver, aftershave etc.
He likes music but has all the gadgets (sonos etc), my mum just bought him a £££ watch but he hasn't got it yet so maybe a watch stand?
He does like sci-fi.

Any ideas?

Does he drink? A decent bottle of brandy-whisky ( Remy / Glenmorangie)
Obviously reads - Kindle e reader.
Theatre tickets
Expensive hip flask - Du Barry
Leather Wallet - Aspinall / Du Barry
Shirt - Gant / Crew etc

They are so difficult, the list is what I've bought mine the past couple of years!

Thanks Nearly smile

I think people can be so particular about wallets but it is a good idea, maybe i can ask mum what style he likes.

He does like a good whisky but they are living abroad now and i think they will have so much stuff to take home the bottle will be weighty.
Cant get theatre tickets for where they live or gigs which is annoying as he would love that. They are in Burma so not so much going on there.

Shirt and wallet good idea. smile Thanks

Is he a manchild like my 75 year old dad? If so expensive toy type thing? Got my dad a Lego Mini Cooper kit.
