Stuck for gift ideas for your dad this Father's Day? Here are 5 of our favourites...
Golf Barbecue Tool Set £18
Hang on – golf-themed gifts are all useless tat, aren't they? Not this one, which is a proper barbecue set featuring a fork, tongs, flipper and cleaning brush. Complete the look with the Golf Ball BBQ. Want sausages? Fore! (Sorry.)
USB Negative Scanner £50
Every Dad, somewhere, has a wealth of unseen photos on 35mm film. Probably forgotten in a loft. Don't let that heritage die – get them instead to convert it all to digital. It'll keep them out of mischief for a few days and you can finally use Photoshop to correct all those times Mum put her finger over part of the lens.
Build Your Own: Internal Combustion Engine £30
Just because he's spent countless evenings watching Fred Dibner get all gooey over a steam loco doesn't mean Dad knows a piston from a con-rod bolt. By the time he's finished building this fully working petrol engine, he will. And hopefully he'll be too happy to explain to you how it works.
Replay: The History of Video Games £13
Dads of a certain age will fondly witter on about pouring 10 pences into arcade machines that could only display three moving sprites and two colours, or waiting 20 minutes for a Spectrum game to load (before it instantly crashed). For them, we'd recommend this book charting the journey from basic monochrome to HD and motion sensitivity.
Beer Machine Brew Master £100
A pricey gift, perhaps, but just imagine the look of childish delight on Dad's face. What man, regardless of their failure to achieve a Chemistry O-level, hasn't dreamed of conducting their own brewing experiments? Allows you to make either lager or ale, depending on the ingredients you use.
