You may have one; you may have a child with one. These are the Father's Day gifts for that man who just buys everything for himself anyway.
It's often hard to find Father's Day gifts to tell your Dad you haven't forgotten this year. It's even harder when you have to buy something on behalf of the childers (depending on whether you take that challenge or not). Gone are the days when a homemade card would suffice, or when your dad would genuinely be happy with a CD.
This little guide of all things non-socks related should help you at least get an idea of a Father's Day present. And, if you're reading this at this stage, you had really better get a move on anyway.
Let's start with an easy one. But one that you shouldn't write off! Who doesn't want to smell nice, after all? Hugo Boss is a good old reliable, with prices starting from €23.50 for a Deo Stick and going up to €74 for 125ml eau de cologne.

HTC U11: the world’s first ‘squeezable’ smartphone
The tech-loving dad will love this new gadget to play with.

The camera has achieved the highest rating ever. (Available at Vodafone and the Carphone Warehouse or sim free for €749 at the HTC e-store.)
