Don’t let it take you by surprise and don’t leave it til the last minute no one wants to settle for whatever they’ve got left at the service station, no one wants a day glo travel neck pillow, particularly not your Dad ! Get him something that says thank you for being there for me, all year round.
Remember, even the most alpha of males need a little pampering occasionally. So you can still look super diligent on the 19th when you pull the best present out of the bag for your old man and look confidently smug with yourself while the rest of the family can only look on with fake pleasure and make a guess at, How does he do it ? envy.
