The grateful D(e)ad


Claire Rubinstein laments this year’s Father’s Day offerings



As far as celebrations go, Father’s Day seems to be a decidedly tepid affair if the dismal offerings from the High Street are anything to go by.


We’d like to see some more creative, thoughtful ideas this year. So rather than the traditional day-release mandatory trip to B&Q, how about a year’s membership to Spearmint Rhino or a pre-loved Chieftain Battle Tank?



"A box of Basset's dad?" For goodness sakes, no.

How about buying dad an armoured 12-litre Rolls-Royce engine battle bus commissioned for Margaret Thatcher? Offers are invited. Contact Tanks-A-Lot on +44 (0) 1295 768400

Or what about a Tucker? Yours for £10,000. Also from Tanks-A-Lot.

Nothing says: “I don’t give a damn” like a box of Bassetts (as I spotted in Sainsbury’s “No. 1 Dad section”). If that’s the best you can do, proceed to life’s departure lounge, put your (novelty-socked) feet up and slip into a sugar coma.
