Picking out a Christmas present for your dad can sometimes feel like a baptism of fire. Why is it so hard to buy gifts for people you supposedly know so well? If you're not sure he'd like something gin-inspired, and have more than £10 to spend, we've rounded up the best Christmas presents for dads that he might like this December 2020.

Whether it's a bottle of rum (reliable), a Google assistant (hard to live without once you've got one) or a book of epic hikes, here are some suggestions - and not a pair of socks in sight.

Judging by the year so far, Christmas might look a little different this year. We're not sure if that means social distancing, limited numbers or celebrating from afar, but one thing is for sure: there's never been a better time to spoil your loved ones, if you can. Here are 20 Christmas present ideas for dad:

If he loves beer, why not challenge him to make his own?
