If your dad has yet to join the growing population of e-book lovers, getting him the kit to do so could be the thoughtful present you're looking for. There are plenty of choices, with Amazon's Kindle range obvious contenders.

We like the look of the Kobo Touch, though, which if you shop around can picked up for roughly £80 now, saving a fair bob in the process. It also means your old man isn't locked into Amazon's proprietary format. You can read a full review of the Kobo Touch here on Reg Hardware.

Lifemax Dreamate Sleeping Aid

RH Numbers

Many dads have no trouble at all getting to sleep at night - in fact, mine can drop off to the land of nod midway through conversation. Still, when he pops over to the more hectic surrounding of the Big Smoke, nap time is as thin on the ground as the follicles on the old guy's scalp.

The Lifemax Dreamate doesn't block out the nearby traffic noise or council estate chit-chatters, but aims to help relaxation by gently massaging acupressure points. While drifting off with a vibrating watch strapped to one's wrist is hardly an appealing prospect, if like my old man, yours always complains of being overwhelmed by the city rush, the Dreamate could be just what he needs to relieve some of the stress.
