Men are notoriously hard to buy for, especially when they seem to own everything and need nothing. Men tend to keep schtum about what they actually want and when they do finally want something, they just take the plunge and buy it themselves. Year after year, we reel off the same list, but if you really want to up your gift game this Father’s Day (16 June), ditch the cheesy mugs and socks for a truly unique gift. Here’s our pick of the best alternative presents.
