Update: I originally wrote this article for Father’s Day but it works all year round for those tricky bookworms and writers in your life.
When I think of my father a treasure trove of memories overwhelm me – the smell of autumnal fires, freshly turned soil and the warm feeling of safety and security. So I look forward to celebrating Father’s Day every year except for one thing – the dreaded present selection.
Is it just me or is buying for fathers the most difficult thing ever? Socks and cheap colognes won’t do – I want something that he will love and that reflects his interests and that’s not an easy ask.
