This is the first in a 3-part series of blogs about gifts for Dads this Christmas. This first blog gives ideas for gifts over £100, part 2 has a budget of under £100 and part 3 under £10. Genuinely Christmas is a period for spending time with family, but if you are looking for that special gift then here are a few ideas that might help to make Christmas a little more magical for your Dad, husband, partner or loved one.
Sony PlayStation 4 Pro - £349.99
The Sony PlayStation 4 Pro launches on 10th November 2016. The PlayStation 4 Pro delivers far more detail and unprecedented visual precision. Compatible with 4K TVs, it can provide higher quality visuals than the current Sony PlayStation 4.
With a vast catalogue of games already released and more to come this holiday season and in 2017 then the Sony PlayStation 4 is a great choice for any gaming loving Dad.
DJI Phantom 4 Aerial Drone - £1,099.99
The DJI Phantom 4 Aerial Drone is the latest release in the drone series by DJI. If you are intending to buy this for a loved one, then you may wish to learn more about safely and responsibly flying a drone in the UK before purchasing.
The DJI Phantom allows you to capture superb aerial images on your iPhone or iPad. Not only does it fly intelligently with a tap and automatically create seamless tracking shots, it can autonomously avoid obstacles and do much more. There is even a visual tracking feature which keeps the camera pointed steadily at a moving subject. You can shoot 4K video at 30fps, full HD 1080p video at up to 120fps for crisp slow motion, and 12-megapixel photo.
This is the ideal gift for any photography loving Dad.

The Apple Watch links with your iPhone so you can control features and music without getting your phone out of your pocket. A must have for any Apple fanboy. If your Dad is a tech or fitness fanatic, then this may be the gift of choice.
Sony PlayStation VR - £349.99
If your Dad already has a PlayStation 4 and is an avid gamer, then he may want the new Sony PlayStation VR instead of the PlayStation 4 Pro. However if you haven’t already pre-ordered one then you may find the only ones available will be on eBay at a high premium price.
VR is put forward as the next step in gaming. Gamers put on a headset and are visually and audibly engrossed in their gaming environment. I can imagine playing the Walking Dead would be a thrilling encounter, but will it take off only time will tell.
GoPro HERO5 Action Camera - £349.99
If your Dad doesn’t fancy moving in to using drones but does love photography, then the GoPro HERO5 Action Camera may be a great alternative. The HERO5 is the most powerful and easy-to-use GoPro ever, with 4K video, voice control, one-button simplicity, touch display and waterproof design.
The HERO5 automatically uploads footage to your GoPro Plus cloud account to provide easy access on your phone. Then, you can create amazing videos automatically with Quik, the GoPro editing ap
