Yes, you read that right... flying lessons!

Treat dad to a 30 minute flying lesson at one of 10 locations across the UK.

This incredible experience will arm him with the knowledge he needs to fly a real light aircraft for the very first time.

The day starts with an introduction to your expert instructor who will be responsible for teaching you all the basic manoeuvres required.

With their in-depth instructions, you’ll feel confident enough to really enjoy taking control of the plane, and will be fully familiarised with the cockpit before taking to the air.

After the instructor demonstrates the plane's capabilities, it’s your turn to put what you have learned into practice.

Family and friends are able to be there for after landing, ready to welcome dad back down to earth!

Weighing in at just under 31kg, this is one BBQ you can - and will want! - to take out and about.

A smaller version of the lust-worthy Kamado Joe (and half the price), this compact ceramic egg-style barbecue will revolutionise how you enjoy your burgers and bangers this summer.

Kamado Joe's ceramic vessel allows it to insulate whatever it is cooking, meaning you can cook at significantly higher temperatures or at very low temperatures for a significantly longer time.

Combine this with the ability to not only control, but fine-tune temperature, and you get a grill that is extremely versatile.

You can cook anything on the Kamado Joe that you would cook in a standard kitchen - including roast dinners, cakes and loaves of bread!

Where to buy: Amazon, £408
