Gifting Dad

Published:Friday | June 9, 2017 | 11:30 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:


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


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.


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.


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.


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.


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


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.


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.


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.


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.
