Everyone is different when it comes to buying gifts; some are super-organised, they purchase in advance and have the gift beautifully wrapped and ready for presenting at least one week prior to the special day. In contrast, there are those who will always have a last-minute dash to the high street in fervent hope of finding that perfect gift for a loved one.


So, with only a couple of days to go until Father’s Day, if you’re reading this for gift inspiration then it’s probably fair to assume that you fit into the latter category.


Well fear not, a trip to The Royal Exchange will give you lots of ideas to find the perfect gift for dad, daddy or the father figure in your life.
