Movie Box sets - Whether your Dad’s day was the sixties, seventies, eighties or nineties, you can pick up great movie box sets of some of the cinema’s greatest releases from his era. Let him put his feet up for a Schwarzenegger marathon. Or maybe Marlon Brando was more his hero. Alternatively, pick out the top ten movie hits from his twenties and create his own unique box set.

Car - If your Dad is a keen car fan, you could take him to one of the motor museums to check out all the old models he used to drive. Alternatively, why not check online to see if anyone is hiring out your Dad’s all-time favourite model of classic car? Many vehicles have been reproduced or replicated in miniature form as collector’s items. See if you can find your Dad’s model motor online.

Drink - Some Dads love whiskeys, and others love their beers. Perhaps yours would be delighted with a brewery or distillery tour? Many of these tours provide you with a detailed history of the place, as well as plenty of tasters! You can often buy little gift selection boxes from their gift shop direct too. The best thing about these visits is you can usually find old-style and original bottles and branding. Bottoms up!

Even if your Dad is stuck in an age gone by, there are still plenty of excellent gift ideas out there for him. The great thing about memorabilia is that many companies are still making items that take you down memory lane today. A quick search online for something from decades ago can often bring up pages of places to buy what you are looking for. Have a great birthday with Dad!
