From socks to boozy chocolates, books about history to comedy ties, buying gifts for Grandpa can get a bit predictable. If you've run out of inspiration for what to buy Grandad this Father's Day (or what you need to buy him from the kids because they're too young or haven't remembered), help is at hand.

We've scoured the online shops to find some of the most unique and thoughtful gifts that Grandpa will really appreciate this year. Gifts to keep him entertained or presents that make him think of his family and treats to spoil him.
