With Father's Day just three months away, it's time to start thinking about what you're going to buy. Whilst some Dad's may be easy to buy for, often they're the hardest person to buy because they already have everything they need or want. If this is the case, you're definitely going to need a little extra preparation to ensure you nail the gift-giving this year. Whether you're buying for your Dad or helping the little ones, here are 6 top tips for buying the perfect Father's day gift:

- Make A List Of Everything They're Interested In

The best place to start is to make a list of absolutely everything they're interested in. Whether it's their favourite band, their favourite food, their favourite make of car or their favourite thing to do at the weekend - having a list will help ensure you're picking something you know they're going to love. If you're lucky, you may even be able to start jotting down gift ideas under each thing they're interested in.

- Think About Previous Gifts You Have Bought

Taking the time to think about previous gifts you have bought and their reactions is a great idea. Not only doe sit allow you to see the kind of presents they reacted positively too, but it will give you an idea as to what they already have already. For example, if you know they love a particular band but they already have all of their memorabilia, there's no point purchasing them anything else from the range. Similarly, if you gifted them Camacho Cigars and they loved them, you know this is something they're going to use time and time again.

- Consider What They Need

Whilst most people don't like to be gifted things they need, sometimes it can be extremely useful. Whether it's an electric toothbrush or a new shaver, they'll be grateful you're taking the time to listen to what they've been saying. In fact, most of the time it will probably be a hint as to what they want you to buy for them.

- Stalk Their Social Media

Another great way to find out what they may want as a gift is to stalk their social media. By looking at what they're posting and the conversations they're having, you may be able to find out exactly what it is they want without them even knowing.

- Make Them A One Of A Kind Gift

If you're really struggling to find out what they might want, why not make them a one of a kind gift? Whether it's a photo frame for their desk or a personalised mug, they'll be incredibly grateful that you (and the kids) put in so much thought.

- Give Them An 'Experience'

Finally, if you want to gift them something they won’t be expecting, go down the experience route instead. This could be a day driving a race car, a hot air balloon ride or a weekend away, as long as it’s something you know they’re going to enjoy.
