Gifting Dad

Published:Monday | June 12, 2017 | 6:00 AM

Father's Day is almost here, so what better way to show how much you care than by giving him a gift to remember! Here are few ideas for gifting Dad:

WATCH IT

Time is everything, so why not say 'I love you Daddy' with a stylish watch to suit those right occasions?

SHAVING SET

If your dad is into home grooming, then don't pass up this great offer to restock his creams and/or aftershave. He will definitely appreciate it.

SPA DAD

If Dad has been stressed lately, then treat him to a day of rest and relaxation at the spa. Half Moon Hotel will be offering a sports massage for fathers this year, so be sure to check it out and pamper Dad today.

A FRESH CUT

If he's not into spas, which dad will say no to receiving a free, fresh cut? You could make it memorable by going upscale and sending him to a high-end barber facility that promises to treat him like the king he is.

COOL CLOTHES

What would be cool is if collectively, as his children, you up the ante by giving him a new look. It could be a shorts and polo shirt, or a pants and button-down shirt. The right dads won't say no to fashion.

COLOGNE

Bring out the classics in him by giving him the opportunity to adorn his body with a 'scent-sational' cologne.

BRUNCHING IT

They often say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. With that in mind, treat your dad's taste buds to the savoury and sweet offerings of an all-you-can-eat brunch. And make it a family event or brunch date for two, for lasting memories.

FINE DINING

If brunch isn't your cup of tea, then do a dinner date with Dad and catch up on some well-needed quality time together. Who knows, a night out with his daughter or son, or both, might be just what he needs.

LIVE MUSIC/MOVIE/PLAY DATE

Get Dad to suit up and step out of the house in style to see a play, watch a movie you know he'll like, or take in some live music, if that's his preference.

SENTIMENTAL GIFTS

Want to pull on his heartstrings and get his emotions going? Then give him a sentimental gift, one he'll always treasure, like a framed photograph of father and daughter labelled, 'Daddy's little girl', 'Daddy's little angel' or 'Best Dad Ever'. Or you could get his name engraved on a pen if he's always writing. The aim is to make him feel appreciated, not only as a person, but as a father too.
