9. Golf Sense 3D Motion Swing Analyser, $179.95
I know nothing about golf, but I do know that budding golfers will lose their mind over a gadget like this one. It detects acceleration, velocity, tempo, position and posture, so getting Dad playing like a pro is possible (and the credit will be yours).

10. Missile Launching Remote Control Helicopter, $69.95
I saw three grown men go ape over these last Christmas when they were in fact intended for the kids in the family, so I know that this gift is a winner for any father who is a big kid at heart. It comes with eight missiles that you can load for rapid fire – which I’m told is a really good thing!
