June has begun and you know what that means: Father’s Day is fast approaching. It takes place every third Sunday of June, which means it falls on the 17th this year. If you’re like me, you might have a difficult time getting your dad a gift. I mean, what do you get someone who might have everything? It’s a tough one but we can all try. Just like our mothers, we should celebrate our fathers everyday but it doesn’t hurt to make this day extra special for him. You have about 12 days to cop him a gift so let this list be your guide if you’re struggling to find the perfect one.
The classic scent for men, which first launched in 1975 has gotten a makeover. It is a mix of woody and floral notes. Its base is leather and black vanilla with hints of lavender coming through. There is also a suggestion of pear and cardamom. The balance between musky and sweet is perfect for any dad. Available at Rustan’s Makati.
Want to give your dad a little bit of everything? Check out this simple gift box. This one includes a bottle of Hennessy, a gray goblet, and a bar of chocolate. You can pick between milk or dark depending on his preference. As a finishing touch, there are also seasonal dried blooms. He can even reuse the box as storage in his home office. Available online.
Make sure your dad is ready for any formal occasion with a tie. It comes in a deep blue shade with a circle pattern all over. This is a good pick because it will match gray, navy, and black suits. Available at Estancia Mall.
Give your dad’s go-to coffee mug an upgrade with KeepCup. It is made of tempered soda lime glass making it durable. The cork band is made of waste product from wine corks in Portugal. This comes in three different sizes so cop whichever matches your dad’s caffeine needs. Available at Hineleban Cafe, 830 Arnaiz Avenue, Makati City.
Get your dad motivated to stay healthy and strong with a pair of wireless headphones. It has an inline remote so you can change tracks without your phone. It also comes with four earbuds of different sizes so you can find the perfect fit. Available at Robinson’s Galleria.
Keep your dad fashionable at work with this briefcase. It has padded pockets that will keep electronics safe like a laptop and tablet. There is also a place for smaller items like pen loops and a key ring. He can carry this from the top handles or on his shoulder using the long strap. Available at Greenbelt 5.
Introduce your dad to the zero waste life with a reusable razor. No need for disposable razors since this one is made of brass with a nickel plating. The only thing that needs to be replaced with this razor would be the blades. It also has a sleek design, which is way more appealing than the plastic ones. Available on Lazada.
