1. Astell and Kern AK 100
With the iPod Classic officially dead, this high-definition player is the new king of portable music players, with a high-end DAC to polish lossless tunes. As well as up to 192GB of internal storage, there's also support for media streaming from your network. It'll make the most of dad's classic rock drive-time favourites.
$699 | ALO Audio
2. RAC CarCam
A gift that can definitely be filed in the ‘useful’ category, this cam sits in the back of pop’s car and records everything going on. It'll provide evidence if he gets into any accidents or scrapes, and may even help cut his insurance premiums.
£99 | RAC
3. Conundrum decanter
You might think that the quirky design of the decanter is there purely for effect, but in fact it enhances both the flavour and aroma of the wine, via the miracle of aeration. It'll give dad something to wax lyrical about while plying the neighbours with Bordeaux.
