Dad’s are notoriously difficult to buy for. You want this gift to be special, especially during this long period of lockdown. So, how do you find that perfect present and keep within a really tight budget, something we’re all having to consider at the moment. Hopefully, the following suggestions will help and will all be a sure-fire way to put a big smile on your Dad’s face. Buying something he needs is never overrated; giving him something funny, sweet and from your heart is also a really good way to go.
When this arrived in the office there was no holding us back, we were straight in, and played the game for a little longer than we should have during working hours. Needless to say, we love it, but then who doesn’t love a bit of POPMASTER?
This fun game is inspired by the game played live on Ken Bruce’s popular BBC Radio 2 show, the exciting card game puts players’ musical knowledge to the test with a series of pop-themed trivia questions. The game is a must-have for all music fans and has a keen fanbase who tune into it.
Will you freeze when the pressure is on? Can you name 3 hits for Take That or Sister Sledge? Do you who sung the ‘Shoop Shoop Song’? Can you name the year ‘Eye of the Tiger’ was number 1?
Are you up for the challenge or will you be ‘one year out’?
To get you in the mood (and these are not from the game) here’s ten Poptastic questions to test you – and no looking up the answers. The answers can be found at the end of this page – if you need them!

Dads will relish the prospect of pulling on fresh, well-fitting pants and smooth, snug socks. And as the months progress, they will celebrate over and over again as they open their underwear drawer to find it full of great new styles.
Online retailer pantsandsocks.com has launched a range of five designer underwear bundles to help take away the stress of gift buying this Father’s Day. They are available to buy as a one-off as well as on subscription, meaning a regular supply of fresh underwear throughout the year. It will be the gift that keeps giving.
