Whether Dad hates using his BBQ because of the clean up afterwards, or he's yet to treat himself to one of the best BBQs out there, this Le Creuset grill can do the job for him – indoors, too. Use it for grilling anything from meat to fish and veggies, and rest assured it will leave his food with those satisfying char lines. He can use it in the grill, in the oven or on the hob, while it's slim so easy to store and you can choose from a huge range of colours.

Lara Black Chair | £129 at Dunelm
This chair is a replica of Hans Wegner's wishbone chair – but for a slice of the price. If Dad has recently started working from home permanently, or he has a desk that he uses frequently, then this chair could be an ideal addition to his home. It's curved and comfortable with a rope seat and beech wood legs, while it comes in two colourways.

Apple AirTag | £29 at John Lewis & Partners
This Bluetooth item finder can be used by Dad to find everything from his keys to his wallet and more, which is especially handy if his memory is getting the best of him (although he may not want to admit that it is!). Buy him one, or a few, of these new Apple AirTags so that he can track his belongings from his phone, while they are even water-resistant, too. He'll probably be impressed with the fact they're the latest tech, too...

6. This cut crystal decanter for his whisky

This small decanter is weighty and hand finished, while it's made of 24 per cent lead crystal. Featuring straight lines inspired from the Brooklyn Bridge, this decanter is actually named after John Augustus Roebling – who designed the Brooklyn Bridge. If he's going to store whisky, he may as well do it in style, right?

If Dad takes care of his car as if it's his youngest child, then it'd be a lovely idea to buy him a car scent diffuser. This one from The White Company will have his car smelling nice, while it's made of aluminium and it clips into the air vent. Pick him an oil – or a range of them – to use along with it and he's sorted.
