It might get harder and harder each year when ‘the man who has everything’ can’t offer any ideas as to what he might want, but Father’s Day is a bit different to your average birthday, and a little bit of creative thought is required to find a special gift or gesture that lets them know you are thinking of them and everything they do is appreciated.
