For those looking for Father's Day gift ideas, the day itself falls on the 17th of June 2012, so the 'Gift of the Year 2012' could be perfect; especially as summer will be just around the corner, and family camping trips and the music festival season are both on the horizon.
The tent is the first life-sized replica of the iconic 1965 Volkswagen Transporter; since the German car manufacturer has licensed its image for the first time; and though it is considered a 'pop-up' tent, it can still sleep up to 4 people in 2 separate double sized rooms.
A good condition Volkswagen Transporter camper van can still sell for up to £25,000 - but the tent retails on thegreatgiftcompany.com for only £295, which means you can still roll up in one to this summer's music festivals without paying a fortune.
The tent was created due to a perceived lack of innovation in the market; so with its blend of cutting edge design and nostalgia, applied to camping; an activity that is a favourite with many dads; it is sure to be a hit when Father's Day comes around and is surely going to be one of the hottest gifts for dad this year.
The Great Gift Company, based in Berkshire and specialising in unique gifts for men, are tipping the tent for massive success in the summer, and are stocking up accordingly, which means that thegreatgiftcompany.com may be the best place to find the much sought after present.
A spokesperson for the Great Gift Company said: 'not only does it look better than any other tent we've seen, it is extremely well made and officially licensed by Volkswagen - and we all know what their standard levels are like!'
