legendary Pop Artist, Andy Warhol, was created by Halston whose 1970s designs were also worn by Elizabeth Taylor and many other glamorous Hollywood stars. It is priced at £9,950.
Or, if your Dad prefers football to fine art, then you can always resort to 'Plan B' and buy in a football shirt. A match-worn shirt by the recently retired Manchester United and England player Paul Scholes is also for sale on the markets, for a much lower price of £1,250.

#6 A nice bottle of Macallan whisky...
If you're going to buy your Dad a bottle of whisky, then why not choose one that rivals him in age? This Macallan Lalique is 64-years-old and is the oldest whisky ever produced by Macallan in its entire 186 year history.
The whisky was vatted from three casks, all of which were built from sherry seasoned Spanish oak. The first was filled in 1942. A bottle was sold at a Sotheby's auction in November 2010 for $460,000 - and it today remains the most expensive whisky ever sold.
#7 Something music related...
If your Dad is prone to feeling nostalgic for bygone days when he enjoyed endless guitar solos and an abundance of hair follicles, then why not buy him a genuine piece of history from his youth? Like a rock autograph, for instance, which are among the best buys on the collectors markets...
Great examples include this album cover signed by the original Rolling Stones line-up, including the late Brian Jones. Needless to say, a piece like this is rare. Consequently, Rolling Stones' autographs, especially those featuring Jones, continue to gain value and bring much satisfaction to investors.

#8 A new Grieb & Benzinger wristwatch
Grieb & Benzinger are the world's most expert designers of exquisite skeletonised and guillochéd watches, whose pieces are finely wrought in platinum using master craftsman skills. Fascinatingly, their designs also draw on historical inspiration....
This example's inner workings are based on the mechanism of a rare quarter repeater movement from the 19th century. It also bears a double-headed eagle, a prominent symbol in Russia. For collectors on a slightly higher budget, this watch would set you back €125,000.
