Yes you read that right folks, this Sunday, yes, this Sunday is Father’s Day, the day when the hardest working member of the family, sorry what, well its the case in the McG household ! gets to relax, put his feet up and everyone runs round and looks after him for a change.
As always we’ve done all the hard work so you can still look super diligent on Sunday 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.

LOVEABLE ROGUE DAD
If your dad falls into that category of a bit of a Hard nut on the outside, who loves nothing more then a pint with his mates and watching the footie.

Look no further than these undoubtedly luxurious house slippers by none other than New and Lingwood, I’ll have you know my good man.
BUSINESS MAN DAD
