Another great gift from LEGO, this collectable technic is for sure one for more experienced builders. Featuring an authentically designed bodywork and original design details: the challenging build makes the best present for any car-loving dad. Review: "This was challenging but not to the degree that a Lego novice would struggle. The secret is, as always, to follow the instructions which are commendably clear. At first you wonder how on earth the various mini builds will make a Defender but gradually the familiar outline starts to take shape and the final large model is very impressive. The moving parts add novelty but the model really is a talking point whenever anyone sees it. All the family joined in and the joint sense of satisfaction was immense. Great fun, highly recommended."

Is Dad a real lover of coffee? Then turn him into a real barista at home with a fancy coffee machine. It might seem expensive, but it's a real investment, and if you add up how much he'll save on takeaway drinks over time, it soon pays for itself. Review: "Had this coffee machine for several months now and it’s brilliant. This was our first machine, I did a fair amount of research prior to this purchase and it hasn’t disappointed. It was really easy to set up and we now use it daily. We make mostly lattes and cappuccinos. As it’s espresso machine the space under is limited for a normal sized mug but I just use a ramekin and pour the coffee into desired cup then add the steamed milk. I use ground coffee and this gives a really nice taste. I think it looks really nice as well, it’s not too big and the colour is lovely."
