Perfect Father's Day presents for the daddy cool in your life

Ahead of the big day, Katie Wright picks the gifts sure to show your pops how much you really care

Fathering Sunday (as no-one has ever called it) falls on June 17 this year, the day when we thank our dads for all they've done for us.

If yours is anything like mine, then he's been, at various times, your personal chauffeur, decorator, interest-free loan provider, giver of advice, settler of sibling arguments and secret weapon in pub quizzes.

For all that and more, dads deserve an enormous amount of gratitude, and more than just a card and a hug once a year.

So, why not treat pops to something special from the grooming department to show him how much you care?

Ensure your favourite child status is sealed this Father's Day, with one of these stylish pressie picks...
