This year, rather than take the easy way out with a flashy tie – rated no.1 most hated gift by Dads by the way, why not do something special for your old man and treat him to a nice indulgent bottle of DADA wine?

Inspired by the Art Movement of which Marcel Duchamps was a cornerstone; most of us might know him from the famous Mona Lisa with a moustache; DADA is trendy, opulent and, in this case, very easy to drink.

We are sure Dad would be very appreciative no matter what you got for him on Father’s Day, and while a heartfelt card and hug are grand, they probably can’t compare to allowing him the chance to kick back and relax as he sips on a glass of red and mulls over his lovely memories of his perfect kids (that would be you).
