Father's Day is upon us. Have you thought of what to get for pops yet? Dads (generally) have unpretentious tastes anyway, and any gift, surely, as long as it comes from the heart, would be more than appreciated. Nevertheless, it's an occasion to celebrate our dads and all the dad figures in our lives, so getting them something special on Father's Day is an apt tribute to all their hardships and sacrifices for the family (bonus if the gift is useful and practical!).
For Father's Day in 2023, here are some gift ideas you can get your pops for every budget!
Proper Walking Shoes for Those Knees
Our dads are getting older, it's a truth we can't deny. While we can't reverse aging so dad can run and jump just like he did in the heyday of his youth, you can get him a pair of good-quality shoes to make his walks comfortable.
The Echelon Walker 3 Walking Shoes from the tried-and-tested athletic footwear brand are known for their best-in-class sneakers. The label, however, also offers walking shoes that can surely accommodate dad's needs, from providing good cushioning to a balanced, springy ride. The Echelon Walker 3 is perfect for morning jaunts around the neighborhood or to pace around with when dad's double- and triple-checking that nothing is amiss in the family.
Normally priced at P6,080, these walking shoes are currently on sale for P3,314. Get them on Saucony Philippines' website in black or white.
Thermal Socks for Those Cold Toes
If you've got a dad whose feet easily get cold, get him a pair of thermal socks. Socks are a gift that you know will be used for their practicality and they also won't set you back if you're on a tight budget.
Thermal socks run aplenty in the market, although if you want some quality ones for dad, these 2 Pack Ultraheat Thermal Socks from retail giant Marks & Spencer fit the bill. These socks will give dad a lot of comfort, thanks to their maximum heat retention that allows for "an effective thermal base layer." They're stretchy and soft, and only priced at P1,450 on Marks & Spencer's website. Dad deserves these socks, and you know it!
A Recliner for the Ages
As one gets older, back and joint problems become more palpable. If money is not an issue and you're willing to spare no expense for the sake of dad's comfort, then a proper chair should be in order. We'll point you nowhere else but La-Z-Boy.
Imitated but never duplicated, La-Z-Boy has long been famous for its recliners. Its reputation precedes it and anyone knowledgeable about high-quality furniture knows it’s the real deal. We recommend you get dad the James All Leather Swivel Reclina-Glider Recliner Black Series this Father's Day. This all-leather recliner features an independent reclining action, full body lumbar support, adjustable reclining tension, a unique four-sided frame, and a removable back so you can bring it anywhere. It's priced at P99,950 on La-Z-Boy Philippines' website.
Single Origin Coffee Beans
While dad may not mind the instant coffee from the supermarket, he may appreciate (and fall in love with) the flavor of single-origin coffee beans that have been properly ground and brewed. Take care of dad's caffeine supply by treating him to these coffee beans from Yardstick, which include. the Sitio Belis Garnica; La Naranja, Peru Espresso; Brazil Lelena Oliveira, and more. Go here to check out Yardstick's available single-origin coffee beans and buy them whole or ground depending on dad’s preference. Prices start at P700.
A Spankin' New Drill
Dad will be the coolest pops on the block with this drill. It's definitely the kind he can show off to his friends and talk about for hours and hours. We all probably grew up knowing our dads as the all-around handymen in the family. While their skills are unquestionable, the proper tools can bring dad's power level to S-tier.
The Impact Drill GSB180 by Bosch should be at the top of your list. This reliable drill is suitable for minor home projects, with changeable carbon brushes, a durable structure and battery cell protection, optimized torque, forward and reverse rotation features, and so much more. Don't think twice – get this Bosch drill for dad on Ace Hardware's website for P11,999.
