Christmas is a time for giving, family, itchy sweaters and, most of all awkward moments. If you’re single, Christmas is awesome: a day off to sit at home in your boxers and slippers with a spiral-cut honey ham in the presence of a tree. But if you’re in a relationship for the holidays you have the inevitable in-law dinner to deal with.

So, just-in-case you’re stuck on what to get that guy who either wants to be your new best friend or take you on a suspicious hunting trip we’ve put together a short list for some of the toughest father-in-laws to buy for.
