Last week we published our top picks of special treats to spoil your mum with this Christmas – but what about dad?

Dads are usually happy enough with a pair of socks and a cup of tea, but what can you put under the tree that will really put a smile on his face?

If your dad is the stylish sort, here’s a winter warmer from Magee of Donegal. This lambswool cable crew neck jumper has a Donegal fleck and is a classic fit to suit all shapes.

Cheers to you, dad!

A gift set of farmhouse beers from Kinnegar will go down well over the holidays.
