With Father’s Day fast approaching, here are our recommendations on what you can give the dads and father figures in your lives.
Ah, dads. A whole other character. Sure, they crack corny dad jokes (like the classic: “Dad, I’m hungry,” to which he responds, “Hi hungry, I’m dad.”), obsessively wrap everything in plastic, or love their pet rooster more than you, among many other quirky mannerisms. But when things get hard and you ever need help, you can always count on them.
Dad, father, daddy, papa, tatay, ‘tay… the list goes on. There are many ways to call the dads and father figures in your lives, but one thing’s for sure: they’re important and special to us.
With Father’s Day coming up, what better way to show our appreciation than by giving them gifts? From luxury goods to practical items and even the failsafe food options, we’ve rounded up our top gift ideas for this year’s Father’s Day. Check it out!
Luxury Gifts for Fancy Dads
Father’s Day only comes once a year, so why not take the chance to indulge in something special? Luxury items are not only fancy but their good quality and workmanship ensures that they’ll last for a long time.
18. Montblanc 1858 Geosphere Limited Edition
Aside from telling time, watches are a statement piece—an accessory that no man could do without. And if you want to give something special to your dad, a watch will do—especially one from Montblanc. The 1858 Geosphere Limited Edition watch is made of titanium and features a unique engraving that shows the Gobi Desert’s famous Flaming Cliffs on the back, while its decor is engraved and polished by laser. Truly a rare piece with only a few in production!
Update your dad’s wardrobe with everyday staples. Take for example this polo from Tommy Hilfiger, which can take him from a casual day at the office to weekends spent pursuing his many hobbies. Made of 100% pure cotton, this polo comes in three colors: Blue, Yellow, and Calm Blue.
Complete your dad’s #OOTD with a pair of flattering plain, slim-fit chinos from Cortefiel. Made of slightly stretchy cotton for greater comfort, these pants come in a fitted cut for a contemporary look. Plus, they include nifty features like a concealed zip and button fly. Two side pockets, a coin pocket, and button pockets complete the design at the back. These slim-fit chinos are available in 4 colors: Green, Black, Navy, and Light Gray.
15. Marks & Spencer Leather Stitch Detail Belt (P2,150)
A belt is a must-have in every dad’s wardrobe. That’s why it’s important to not only choose a classic design, but also one that will last long. This leather belt from Marks & Spencer, for example, is sleek and black—very traditional yet at the same time casual, too. It even features stitch details to give it a handcrafted look, along with a contrasting trim for a luxurious appearance.
What’s a gentleman if not always fresh and impeccably groomed? Give your dads this cologne from 1902 Tradition—a must-have for the modern-day gentleman. With its distinct citrus notes paired with neroli and a touch of amber, this cologne is light and refreshing. It’s a traditional fragrance that your dad can use on any occasion, too!
13. The Somerset Toiletry Company’s Mr. Perfect Soap + Wash Set (P750)
Update your dad’s toiletries with some nice-smelling essentials. This soap and wash set from The Somerset Toiletry Company is guaranteed to keep him fresh and clean from head to toe. Plus, it comes in a set, giving you more bang for your buck.
Getting old means backaches and body pains galore. So give your dad the gift of comfort with this black cushion from MUJI. It’s soft, portable, and provides great back and waist support. Perfect for when your dad is lounging around, working, or watching TV! Plus, this cushion is made of 100% polyester and is stuffed with Polyethylene Resin—crushed scraps produced during the production of automobiles—in an environmentally friendly move to reduce waste.
11. Gold Rimmed Drinkware Set from West Elm (P4,950)
In the era where people are doing tablescapes and obsessing over their dinnerware, it’s time to get your dad in on the fun. This classy drinkware set from West Elm features 4 gold-rimmed Old Fashioned glasses, an ice bucket in the middle, tongs, and a stand to keep everything together. Whether for drinks in his home bar or for entertaining guests, there’s no doubt: this is the epitome of luxury and class.
Every dad has a pair or two (or more!) of fancy dress shoes for special occasions. On days when they’re not being used, you can help keep them in their best shape with these shoe keepers from MUJI. Not only do these shoe keepers stretch out wrinkles and maintain the form of your shoes, but they also prevent unwanted smells! After all, red cedar naturally deodorizes and repels insects. Amazing!
For dads who think that coffee is essential, you can give them the gift of a perfect cup of coffee. How? Through Nespresso. This versatile coffee machine can make a mean cup of espresso, a lungo, an americano, or even tea with its hot water option. All you need are the Nespresso capsules to give you fresh coffee, quick and easy! Choose from two colors—classic black or fiery red—to match the kitchen.
Let’s face it: we’re not getting any younger. And so are our dads! That’s why practical gifts that keep him healthy are in order. Not only will he use them for sure, but these gifts also show how much you care for him. It’s the thought that counts!

Hair today, gone tomorrow. One of the many woes that dads have to deal with include hair loss. But not to worry. This hair treatment set from Pelo Baum helps promote longer, thicker and healthier hair. With biotin, natural plant extracts, and peptide complex among its many ingredients, Pelo Baum’s shampoo, conditioner, and hair revitalizing solution is designed to stimulate and fortify the hair and scalp.

With high-quality proteins, carbohydrates, and essential fats in it, this milk helps provide strength and energy. It also comes with prebiotics for better nutrient absorption, enhanced immunity, and normal digestive function. But most importantly, it ensures (pun intended) better bone and muscle health.
When in doubt, food is always a good choice. As long as you know what your dad likes to eat or drink, buying him a gift is easy. And since it’s Father’s Day, don’t forget to get him a cake while you’re at it!
