Father’s day is just around the corner and you really want to get him something special. But how do you get the man who has everything something that will actually matter to him? While of course he’d love you to get him an outrageous tie, a cool ipad cover or some excellent camping equipment for your next trip into the great outdoors, sometimes what really matters is making the space to have some quality father son/daughter time together. And therein lies the answer to your dilemma: why not take him out for a meal, take him out for a coffee, take him out for a quick bite or knuckle down for a serious heart-to-heart over a tumbler of whiskey on the rocks?
