Gift Ideas for Father's Day 2016

With Father Day nearly with us (Sunday 19th of June) a lot of us will be hunting around for that ideal gift for Dad. I know personally how difficult it can be to find that perfect present (funny how that rarely happens with gifts for mother!) and traditional lines of enquiry (e.g. bottle of whisky, and gag-gifts such as novelty socks) end up becoming a bit uninspired year on year. This year, why not give him something that will last, and he will get continuous use out of throughout the entire year?

Sticks & canes can certainly make an ideal present for Father's Day! We're not particularly suggesting day-to-day walking sticks here, but more our sticks for hiking & countryside walks, as well as our dress canes and collectors' canes. We truly have a selection to suit all types at the Stick & Cane Shop.

We have put together a selection of sticks that are suitable for all types of men out there, from the city gent to the outdoorsy type. With these gift ideas you really cannot go wrong. They will be a gift that will last for years and provide a great deal of enjoyment.
