Whether your Dad is a BFG-style wordsmith or a revolting chef, we've a delumptious Roald Dahl-inspired gift for every pocket.

For outdoorsy Dads

Want to show your Dad just how much of a champion you think he is? This beautiful limited edition print shows Danny and his Dad from Danny, the Champion of the World out doing what they do best - catching pheasants.

The quote reads, "What I have been trying so hard to tell you all along is simply that my father, without the slightest doubt, was the most marvellous and exciting father any boy ever had."

For cookery-loving Dads

Is your Dad a dab hand in the kitchen? This little-known cookbook might give him something different to try - it's full of recipes created by Roald Dahl himself, as well as members of his family and cookery-expert friends. Not a Revolting Recipe in sight (though we have some of those, too...)

For gobblefunking Dads

Roald Dahl's The BFG is a whizz with made-up words. If your father's anything like him, chances are you're not always quite sure what he means... This t-shirt features a quote from The BFG which reads, "What I mean and what I say is two different things." Perfect for those creative wordsmiths.
