Still looking around for the ideal present? We've got 10 ideas for you

These days, it can be tricky to find piano-themed Father's Day gifts on the internet. Gift idea articles often seem to be full of stereotypical Dad presents, such as a new tool kit, or a beard maintenance kit (they do exist!). 

But what about Dads who adore the piano? Where are the gift articles that represent them?

We wanted to make sure you had a nice selection of piano-related presents to choose from. So, if you're in need of a plan to thank your old man, check out these 10 gift ideas below.

 

1. 'Chopin bored' chopping board

Cooking can get tedious and a little boring at times. This 'Chopin bored' chopping board is bound to make your Dad laugh when he's whipping up something special for you. At £6.99, it's a no-brainer if your budget is on the lower side.

If your Dad is a Jamie Cullum fan, or indeed a jazz fan, it might even be worth considering buying him this limited edition signed copy of his album AND a pair of tickets to his tour...

You'd be well on the way to earning Best Child of the Year.

5. James Rhodes: Instrumental

Does your Dad still dream of being a professional pianist? James Rhodes was a financial advertiser in London up until he was 28, which was when he decided to quit his job and pursue his dream of being a professional pianist. After 5 years of intense training in Italy, Rhodes finally released his first album at the age of 33. 

His new book just goes to show that, if you work hard enough, you can achieve your dream. Get your Dad this inspiration book this Father's Day.
