    I don't know how much you're able to spend, but last year, I got my Dad a nice watch, and had it engraved on the back...

    god i haven't a clue either...as i see things i'll try and remember to come back here and post for you...but if it helps there's a website called www.iwantoneofthose.com which has gadgets at very cheap or more expensive prices so you'll probably find something cool and original on there

    I have no idea :( My dad is very hard to buy for.

    He's one of these people who has everything, and everything he has is totally unaffordable for someone like me. He's wealthy, and collects fine wine, artwork and fast cars. He'll only wear designer clothes and like to jet off on foreign holidays at the drop of a hat.

    This is, OH and I don't have much money and anything I buy him never gets used. I mean why buy him something from M&S if he's just going to jet off to go shopping in Monaco.

    I *hate* shopping for him :( It really stresses me out.

    I am getting my Dad...well...can't get him really anything, but I am sending him some extra commisary money. For the FIL, probably a digital picture frame cause he's addicted to photo taking

    I know this'll sound really cheap but i'm getting my stepdad some nice coffee from whittards. Will get most of it ground, but keep some as beans and put it in a handmade bag thing like people do with wedding favours.
