Unusual Christmas Gift Ideas For Dad
Fathers are notoriously hard to buy for, so to save dads all over Jersey getting a novelty Christmas themed jumper again this year we set out to find some great alternative gift ideas. Inspired by someone who bought their father chain-sawing trousers last Christmas from Romerils (that apparently went down a storm), we thought we’d head there to see what else they had to offer the main man in our lives.
1. Power Tools!
If your dad has a man cave full of gadgets then chances are he’ll love some more practical man-stuff. It’s best not to get him one of the more obvious power tools as he may already have it, so unless you have it on good authority that his much-loved drill is broken then opt for something a little less ordinary such as the Bosch multi-tool for cutting and sanding £69.95
2. Music Speaker
Does your dad subject you to endless repeats of his favourite songs from a time (long) gone by “when music was good”? If that sounds familiar then the Jam XT Extreme Bluetooth Wireless Speaker at £39.95 could be just the ticket for your music man. He’ll love being able to listen to music or the radio whilst he is out tinkering in the garden or shed.
3. Coffee Maker
Got a Dad who is always on the go? Or one who likes to think of himself as a bit of a coffee connoisseur? Then the cool Krups Nespresso Coffee Maker could be a good option. It was £189, but is currently on offer for £159 and it comes with a free £75 Nespresso gift card. If he doesn’t already own one then this will be one of the best presents he ever gets.

Perfect For Your Pad, From Mypad.je
Our homes are our castles and it is important to make sure you feel looked after and comfortable in your own house. After a hard day’s work there’s nothing better than going home and curling up on a luxurious soft sofa. We also spend around a third of our lives in our beds, so making sure you have the right bed, and one in which you can sink into and dream the night away is incredibly important.
The Anastasia super king upholstered bed will give you the space and comfort you need, and in a quality fabric that can match your bedroom décor and give your room a luxury hotel feel. It also won’t bust the budget at just £395.
If you like the idea of lounging in the day then the Caesar Chaise is up your street. Why not indulge yourself and see if you can persuade your partner to feed you grapes as you drape elegantly over this piece of decadent furniture. It’s French inspired but takes its inspiration from the classic British Chesterfield sofa – the perfect combination for the Jersey home. It’s available in leather, heritage fabric or crushed velvet. The Caesar Chaise is £999.
As Christmas approaches thinking of a present for the man or woman who has everything is always tough, so why not buy them their own chair. We all like our own space, a little nest we can call our own and with the 2000 Harrington you can do it in style. It’s available in vintage leather, heritage fabric, crushed velvet or a combination it costs £699.
