6. Fitbit Inspire, from £69.99 – best for fitness lovers

If Grandad likes to keep active (or needs a nudge to get moving) then he’ll love the Fitbit Inspire. Newly released, this easy-to-use gadget will help him keep track of his activity by automatically logging bike and swim workouts as well as walks and runs, and recording distance covered and calories burned.

When his fitness goals are met, it’ll keep motivation levels up with celebrations, but if he’s taking things too easy, it’ll gently remind him to do 250 steps every hour.

Designed to be worn on the wrist or attached to a waistband or belt, the Inspire will also keep him connected by providing calendar, call, app and text alerts.

Green-fingered grandads will know how important bugs and bees are to the planet, and this beautifully crafted biome will provide a home for solitary bees and all manner of creepy crawlies.

And with its unique shape, it will look amazing in the garden, too.

One of Britain’s all-time classic sitcoms, Dad’s Army remains a telly favourite with 80 episodes over nearly 10 years.

9. rCUP Reusable Cup, from £11 – best for coffee lovers

Made from recycled coffee cups, this reusable cup is designed to be leak proof, BPA-free and dishwasher safe and its rim offers 360° drinking just like an ordinary cup.

It’s designed to last for at least 10 years, according to rCUP, after which it can be recycled, and is available in eight colours.
