What are you gonna get your old man (June 16)

I waited last minute to get my mum something this year, so if you have any good ideas, post em up.

My old man is in Montblanc phase at the moment, so I'm looking at some small leather goods, maybe a document/card holder.

He's a pain to shop for, I remember when I was in elementary school we made paper ties, gave it to him and found it in the garbage the same day

I think some slim card holders or money clip wallets would be a great gift idea. My dad doesn't have "newish" jeans so sill be looking for a pair of simple dark rinse ones with fairly subtle details

He's away for a month during June so I gave him his present last week. Nexus 7 tablet because he loves watching his "apple" news before bed on his iphone (which is too small for his aging eyes)

Got him a bottle of remy martin vsop... was a good choice. Maybe next year ill get him the XO.

Perhaps a quality wallet? I know my dad's wallet is pretty fat with a bunch of cards and such, so a nice slim one would be nice for essentials if there's an occasion.

For a sleek slim card holder/wallet, I recommend going to the betty hemmings store in vancouver. Me and my dad both have the betty hemmings card holder...holds 3 cards, 2 front pouches and 1 in the back, and in the center is a opening for cash. Its one of the nicest compact leather slim ones I've seen.

They have others too, but their own branded one is the best imo, very good quality leather.

I have never visited betty hemmings before. Out of curiosity, for the card holders, are the prices range similiar to say Coach, Burberry, LV or are they cheaper?

They are cheaper than say LV or Burberry, mine was I think 175 $ or so. Go take a look at their store, I found out about the store from my old man, and if your into leather goods they have some quality stuff. The salesman when I went seemed to know his shit too.

i think I've settled on getting him a bottle of cognac...Hine Antique Xo to be exact. I know jack about cognac's but I know we have remy xo kicking about.

Can anyone confirm that this is a good choice, I guess its still all subjective at the end of the day.

Back in the day, we just used to get him power tools but now he pretty much has every power tool and could host "Tool Time" if he wanted to. The easy way out would be a gift card of some sort.

Then go for a gesture instead of a physical gift.

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

We are both trades people. I usually buy extra tools when they are on sale then just wait until birthday, fathers day, or Christmas... and if I need a tool I can always pick out of my "new" tools instead of giving them.
