What do you get the man who has everything? As a little girl growing up, I always looked up at my dad as Superman. I wanted to give him the world, but as I got older, married with kids of my own, I realized that all he really wanted was to spend time with his family.
So whether it’s a box of his favourite Cuban cigars or a bottle of fine Cognac, we always get him a little something to spoil the man who does so much for our family. If you still haven’t found that special something for your dad, don’t sweat it, it’s not too late. Check out these fabulous gift ideas any dad will be thrilled to open this Father’s Day.
