What can I get the old man this Father's Day?

Father’s Day is fast approaching and if you’re like me you’ll be scratching your head thinking about what you could possibly get the old man this year. Dads and Grandads are notoriously difficult to buy for. They often buy anything they could possibly need about a week before Father’s Day, leaving you stumped!

Well never fear, if your Dad is a gardener, working man or he’s an avid DIYer (or bodger) we probably have something that will make him happy. So, don’t cop out and get him a pair of socks or a cheap mug that says, “best dad ever”, get him something practical that he can make the most of. Modern Dads are busy with work, house chores and reading the bed time stories these days. This all takes its toll, so why not treat the old man to one of our best buys for Dads.

Here’s our top 5 buys!

Blackrock Rigger Boots.

These come in two colours (tan and black) and are perfect for work or taking the dogs for long Sunday walks in the fields. They’re fur lined to boot, keeping the ol’ fellas feet nice and toastie. A sure-fire winner that will keep your Dad smiling!

Is he the kind of man who hides in a study or potting shed when the grandkids are causing mayhem? Then get him some Blackrock Ear Defenders, when the decibel levels are getting a little too high for his liking, he can slip these on, close his eyes and pretend he’s far far away!
