abl13 :  my dad wants collar stiffeners. Exciting. 

I’m making him some homemade shortbread too as he goes mad for it 🙂

We are getting Father-In-Law a Blueray/DVD player for his den as he doesn’t have one and likes to watch movies 🙂

My dad is pretty old school…and funny! Haha…all he ever wants for Christmas, birthdays, etc., is socks, underwear and t-shirts 😊 I will never buy him underwear and always get the wrong sized t-shirts, so socks it is!

Mine almost always wants tools.  This year it’s a particular socket set that he won’t stop talking about wanting.  I bought it for him but he doesn’t know, so whenever someone asks what he wants that’s what he says, so I’ve sent everybody who buys him presents a text telling them he’s getting it so he doesn’t get two.

My sister and I are paying for formal pictures for us and our dad! My dad detests others spending money on him (plus he has at least 2 of everything anyways), but he adores pictures. I don’t think my sister and I have ever gotten professional pics taken with my dad, so it’ll be a meaningful gift.

I got my father a portable Bose bluetooth speaker. He works outside for hours every single week, and he’s had it on his list for a couple of years!

My dad used to never wear pyjamas and now he wears them. My dad fell and fractured his back around a month ago and he has also lost a lot of weight since he had a stroke in May,  so the pjs he wears all the time are too big.  I bought him a nice plaid flannel pair.  Luckily my dad is starting to feel better but I am sure he will still appreciate them.

abl13 :  I always have trouble thinking of gifts for my dad. This year I got him a sweater. I’m also making some cookies and fudge that I’ll give to my mom and dad to go along with their gifts.
