Books for Father's Day gifts he'll always love

In this digital age, books on devices can be very convenient. Taking a selection of books to the beach on a tablet is, we admit, a great thing. However, as handy as digital books are, you can't replace a glorious coffee table book with glossy and wondrous photographs of places you've never been. Your Father's Day gifts can show Dad new worlds, exquisite design, desirable buildings and cars, all while he has his feet up with his favourite drink.

Some photographs are so amazing you can get lost in time gazing at them. The best things about these types of men's gifts is they never get boring. We have selected photographic books that will help you get desirable Father's Day gifts.

Show him the world in a book this Father's Day

We have books that can show him famous Manhattan apartments that will make him drool with envy (hopefully not on the book!), as well as a book of spectacular sheds created by men with fine imagination. The photos in both books are jaw-dropping – a shed can look as good as a millionaire's penthouse, it just depends how you look at it. Give your Dad either or both as his Father's Day gifts.

Alternatively, for the petrol head we have gifts for men that they'll love in the shape of coffee table books on cars and bikes. Not just any cars and bikes of course, but the classic kind people never get tired of. Pages and pages of fantastically photographed motorised works of art – as gifts ideas for men go, these are high on the wish list.

If you're not sure what type of book he'd love as his Father's Day present, then take a look on his shelf, or ask a friend. Often friends are the best source of gift ideas for men because they'll hear about your Dad's favourite subjects.
