We will be on holiday (Majorca, enjoying sunshine, oh yes!!) on Father's day, so need to get something for H from M that isn't bulky or breakable....and I've no ideas unless I get him another shirt
we fly back the day after so something holiday related, new shorts or whatever, would be kinda pointless....
any ideas ladies? He uses his kindle rather than buying books so that's out, don't particularly want to get clothes if I can help it and alcohol wise he's a lager drinker so unless I buy him a crate of lager (which I'm NOT taking to Majorca then that's not an option either...

How about a photo keying with a nice pic in it? Can't get much smaller than that!

hmm M doesn't sit nicely for photos, will need to get trying to take one of the two of them...

Going against the fact you said no clothes - could you get M to draw something and get it printed on a t-shirt or infact maybe on a mug? We have a cool mug that L got done at nursery where his drawing is printed on it.

He got a,new card holder thing from Christmas Lauren, and just recently a kindle case - he is literally one of those people who need nothing!

I've just ordered H a photobook I've called 'Our Daddy' from the girls. (Snapfish have offers on at the mo.) I got the idea from the Peppa Pig books! Basically it's got loads of photos of H and the girls from the past year with statements like 'Our Daddy makes us smile.... especially when he pulls silly faces.' and 'Our daddy likes to have fun ... playing with our toys' with photos of H at soft play and playing with C and her Barbie boat etc. I ended it with 'We love our daddy ... and Mummy does too' with a photo of the 4 of us. Made me quite sentimental. I hope he likes it now! We're on hols too, so ordered a smaller one that will be easy to pack and is more 'book' like.

Could you choose something there on the day? A souveneir of fathers day in majorca? And just take a card with you?

Actually leela that's not a bad idea , plan some kind of excursion or something then buy him a souven
LWO, that sounds beautiful, but I don't have enough decent photos of any of us together...must rectify

I'm doing full on cheese. matching father son t-shirts from Matalan: World's greatest dad/son. If I had more pennies they would be from Not on the High Street- the dad wears an Oak Tree and the son wears an Acorn.

Carole that sounds fab! Unfortunately M is turning into a diva and she will only wear dresses I think I'll have a nose on notonthehighstreet for inspiration
