6 Useful Father's Day Gifts your Dad will Love

Father's Day is just around the corner so we've put together a quick guide of 5 items your Dad is sure to appreciate.

6 Useful Father's Day Gifts your Dad will Love

If you’re anything like me, you can never figure out what’s the best gift to get your Dad. A watch he’ll never wear? A pair of wireless headphones he’ll give up on cause he can’t connect the bluetooth? I’d love to pull a Tyrion Lannister and say “I am the gift” but we both know he deserves better.

Not unlike Tyrion Lannister, I also drink and know things. Source

But this year is gonna be different (I hope). With slightly over a week till Father’s day, I’ve done the legwork for you guys and chosen 6 gifts that’ll put a smile on your old man’s face.

Personalised Stainless Steel Water Bottle - $42.00

The number one thing my Dad loves to tell me is “Son ah, remember to drink water. See your lips so red!” Oh how the tables have turned. Remind your Dad to stay hydrated all through the day by getting him a personalised water bottle with his initials, name or even an icon with metalphorically.

Oh we know what that magic brew is alright 👀 Source

There’s a couple variants available with different volumes (up to 750ml) and having ordered from them before, I can say their craftsmanship really is impeccable. The best part is that it’s a local brand so you can get your gift shipped to you in time while doing part to #supportlocal.

IMO all batteries should display a smiley face when fully charged. Source

Fitbit Charge 3 - $188.00

A must-have for the fitness Dad is a sports tracker for them to clock points for their National Steps Challenge or AIA Vitality. My budget option is definitely the Fitbit Charge 3 which is retailing now on Shopee for $188 + Free Shipping (down from $238).

In another life, I'd like to think I would've made a great hand model

I personally use this one everyday and I find the sleek rectangular watch face to be so much better than the blockish design of the Versa or Ionic. It’s also got all the bells and whistles, heart monitoring, an exercise mode and even a sleep tracker you can pair with your app. Even if your Dad doesn’t use all that it’ll still track his steps and look hella dope on his wrist.

Just looking at that marbled texture of the meat wets my appetite. Source

Steak Dinner for Four - $198.00

This one is for all the carnivore Dad’s out there. Men whose hearts are only truly full when they sink their teeth into a perfectly seasoned rare steak. Thankfully Butcher Boy offers you that exact experience with tons of tasty extras  to boot.

Even if steak isn’t really your thing, their bao’s are absolutely to die for. I strongly recommend the Fried Chicken Bao which is just both crispy and juicy at the same time. If you’re feeling ambitious you can grab one of their “Build A Bao” kits and assemble some Pork Katsu or Shroom & Soya baos for yourself.

I could sit and stare at this gif for hours... Source

The Gen 2 design comes with Heat Ventilation Holes so it’s safe to use with laptops that have vents at the bottom. It’s also super easy to deploy and put away when not in use so it’s basically Dad Proof.

If you’re a Circles.Life user you can get this handy laptop stand at 5% off including free delivery at only $33. Simply click here to get yours now from the Circles.Life app.

The level of chill I aspire towards. Source

A Zen Hammock - $178.00

For the ultimate chill Dad who just wants to relax after a hard day's work. Who needs expensive massage chairs that cost thousands of dollars when you can rock all your troubles away in a portable hammock.

The Simpsons even predicted what you'd say to your Dad after you got him his hammock. Source

Unlike the hammocks your Dad has to manually set up during his day in NS, tying them to trees and what not, you can set up a zen hammock once and pretty much swing on it forever. If you’ve been to festivals like Art Box and Night Fest you’ve probably seen and tried Airmock’s before so why not bring that level of chill to your living room 😌

Spend Quality Time with Him -$0.00

(ok lah, maybe the cost of some food plus your Netflix subscription)

This might feel like a cop out but it’s true. Sometimes the best gift we can give our Dads is some quality HTHT (heart-to-heart-talk) time. It’s one of the few things I managed to have with my Dad over Circuit Breaker since we were both at home all the time and it was really nice.

Got some really good nuggets of wisdom out of him like “trying is everything”; which is especially good advice not only in life but that one time I joined him for a run and dropped out 3km into a 5 click run.

Believe or not this was my first time trying Swee Choon. Pretty good stuff 👍

So why not give it a shot with your pops too. Get his favorite Ha Cheong Gai, Chili Crab or whatever from a Zhi Char store and just laugh at a good movie.

Sometimes simple really is best!
