From what we hear, matching up the big boys and little guys is more popular than ever, and it's not just swim shorts in tall and small sizes (matching Blue and Orange Octopus swim shorts have been one of our bestsellers in 2017) that are featuring large on this year's Christmas gift lists. We've unearthed these cute, cool and covetable things that are guaranteed to make any dad and his mini-me smile.
Bright Red Socks
In a fire-engine hue that's perfectly festive, these soft cotton ribbed socks (in a nifty gift box) are fun and will add a smart edge to Christmas Day lunch outfits.
A pair for me, a pair for you. Team up in matching shades (high-spec lenses are a must for kids too) from Hawkers. This brand does a very cool Carbon range with zingy-coloured lenses that will complete an overall brights-at-the beach look.
Father and son Boing Bands by Hurley Burley are ultra-durable, water resistant rope bracelets with stainless steel magnetic fastenings that can be engraved with a personalised message. They come in punchy paint box colours for distinctive dad-and-his-boy credentials!!
The Trusty Tee
Click onto Etsy and you'll find a whole raft of father and son t-shirts to choose from. Search TwistedTwee Ltd for this Breton-style set (amongst other stylish numbers) and Banana Lane for wordy designs in extra soft, ethically sourced cotton.
Best Bud Backpacks
Who can resist a Fjallraven Kanken backpack in mini and man-size versions? There are lots of juicy colours to choose from - we love the Ocean Green but might just have to treat the guys to the sunny Warm Yellow variation for summer.
And...swim shorts, sorted!
