    Help!!!

    Hiya folks,

    It my Dad's 60th birthday next weekend and I'm really struggling on what to buy him. As its his 60th I want to get him something special. Does anyone have any idea's??

    My Dad loves cars, gadgets & travel just to give you an idea of what he likes.

    All idea's welcome. Thanks in advance! x

    PS: As I'm not working at the mo I need to ensure that whatever I buy isnt too expsensive

    What sort of budget do you have in mind?

    Is it just yourself that is buying the present? I chipped in to get my dad a really nice watch that was on offer on Amazon.

    Happy shopping...

    How about getting a relatively large photo printed out at snapfish or something (bound to be a cheap voucher code around) and go to your local market or a charity shop and buy a framed picture for cheap (usually no more than £1 at my locals) and frame the pic you get from snapfish or wherever

    Try this for 85 quid, assuming that he does not have a new m.benz of course!]http//ww…tml

    Nice idea..I was wondering if anyone has any feedback on the redletterday driving experiences...some of them can be cheap(ish)

    I would be interested in your idea! Nice one :thumbsup:

    The maximum budget would be about £100 split with my boyfriend

    Love yr idea choc. Mmmm me knows what me wants for birthday

    You really cannot go wrong with photos. Pressies that have been the most special to me are the ones my kids have enlarged / improved / restored because they know I am hopeless and will never get round to it. Not much use if he is a whizz already.

    Another thing to consider is a family portrait / voucher, which would mean all of you arranging a session which would include him, OR....

    My kids always hated getting family formal portraits when they were younger. A few years ago, they all got themselves organised and I got a fantastic picture of them all (14 kids aged 14 to 26). Fantastic to see all the kids and grandkids in one pic, such a surprise and I knew the huge effort they had all gone to, travelling hundreds of miles. That was for my 50th.
