Father’s Day Gift Guide 2018

Father’s Day is just around the corner (Sunday 17th June).

So, if you’re looking to buy something more than just socks or a jumper this year, I’ve put together some suggestions of items that are available to buy in the shop (so as well as finding a rather special gift for your Dad this year, you are also helping to fund the continuation of my ataxia awareness-raising/fundraising – at no additional cost to yourself of course).

Smiles all round!

Amazon (Books):


The Fortnum & Mason Drink Book of the Year 2016

Red or white? Cabernet or Merlot? Medium or full-bodied? Drinking great wine isn’t hard, but finding a great wine is much easier when you understand the fundamentals.

Using visual infographics, charts and maps, the expert founders of Winefolly.com have created the ultimate wine resource packed with facts and information.

From tips on which glasses to use, and easy-to-grasp flavour wheels for each wine type, to simple tasting and food-pairing notes, Wine Folly is a fascinating modern and colourful guide.

This accessible book will equip your Dad with the knowledge and confidence to enjoy great wines.
