Father’s Day is just around the corner. Thankfully for internationally celebrated days like this, we are reminded amidst our busy schedules to show appreciate to the men who have raised us, provided a roof over our heads and encouraged us to strive to be our best. Even if most dads do not articulate their need or desire for affection, a thoughtful gift bring a smile to their faces.
If you’re still scratching your head over a practical and affordable gift, fret not. Here’s a gift guide to help every type of dad feel loved this Father’s Day.
These days, we’ve stopped judging men for taking care of their appearance. If your father and/or husband is a well-groomed man, he would appreciate gifts to help him look good and even pamper himself.
Shop on ZALORA to find fashionable work shirts, polo tees, chinos, belts and bags from Brook Brothers, Banana Republic, Calvin Klein and many other brands.

The other option is to take your dad for a shopping spree, or a makeover especially if he has been wearing the same outfit for the past nine years. Goldlion is now having a 30% storewide sale on regular items with minimum purchase of any 2 pieces. Plus! members who spend $80 get to take home a free RFID card case.
Surprise your dad with a cool board game that can also be used to create family fun time. Race him to transform Mars into a liveable planet like Earth with Terraforming Mars or challenge your nature-loving dad to attract the best birds to your aviary with Wingspan.
If you’ve recently heard him complaining about his lagging laptop, then he might appreciate a shiny new gadget.

Thrill seeker dad
With all the activities and attractions in Sentosa, it’s the perfect place to make Father’s Day a memorable one. Treat your husband and/or father to a good surf and delicious food at the WaveHouse or an exhilarating ride at the Skyline Luge.
If a weekend on the island is not enough, do consider for various memberships or packages for greater cost savings if you do intend to come back. Plus! members can now enjoy 40% off any Luge License Membership, which not only gives discounts on Luge & Skyride packages but also priority access via Express Queues.
For the outdoorsy dad, being adequately prepared is every bit important because it can make or break the experience. Protect his eyes with the pair of Oakley or Ray-Ban he’s been eyeing from OWNDAYS and earn LinkPoints with your purchase. The HeatGear® Armour Long Sleeve Compression Shirt from Under Armour will keep him cool and comfortable on his trekking or cycling explorations.
Laid back dude
While some may feel that this group of fathers are the hardest to please because they seem to be okay with everything, the flip side can be also true! They don’t actually need much to feel happy and very often, hearty conversations over a good meal is usually more than enough.
Remember the days where we’d make our dad buy us ice cream whenever we see an ice cream truck? Reminisce good times and return the favour with some exotic Turkish ice cream from Mado Turkish Ice Cream.
If you have been visiting the same restaurant for the past few occasions, why not head over to PastaMania for a chill evening over affordable Italian food? Discover your pasta-nality and get $3 off the New Spicy pasta when you place your order via the COMMONS SG app. Otherwise, indulge your father in a feast of freshly-shucked oysters and sashimi at Four Points Eatery Sunday Brunch.
The truth is, any gift you buy will warm your father’s heart. Even if he may say it’s a waste of money or something he does not need, it’s always the thought that counts.
