“It’s a bird!... It’s a plane!...No! It’s Super Dad!” While equality and women empowerment are already a thing here in the Philippines, fathers are still highly regarded as the haligi ng tahanan or the pillars of the home. They are tough disciplinarians yet loving and selfless, especially towards their children.
Despite the pandemic limiting us to stay safe in our homes, Father’s Day should be nothing short of fun and meaningful with our capeless superheroes! Through this article, we will help you choose only the best gifts for the best dads. This contains a buying guide and best recommendations as treats to all the dads.
Culturally speaking, whenever Filipino dads speak or decide, the whole family listens. But most of themare men of few words, especially when it comes to expressing things they like or want to receive as gifts. But if there is one guilty pleasure most dads, or men in general, would love to have, that would be a pair of shoes.
However, buying shoes online is very risky because most dads want an original pair with the right fit. But worry not because there are a lot of other great items that can be purchased online that they would equally love. Hear us out on our tips to buy other equally great presents that you can give this Father’s Day.
When our dads were still single, they would really invest in the things that interest them. Sporty men will invest in shoes, jerseys, balls, and other exercise equipment. Adventurous men who are into traveling will go for camping bags. Tech-savvy men go for gadgets and game consoles.
But one thing in common among them, when these men become good fathers, they are willing to sacrifice interests to prioritize their families' needs and even wants. So, a Father's Day gift related to his hobbies and interests would be some wonderful guilt-free indulgences they may enjoy.
Fathers who are really practical would not really buy unless items are needed. Many of them do not really prioritize aesthetics. Dads prefer to buy multi-purpose and cost-efficient items that will last them for years to come. Well, they pay for the family expenses, so this should be a no-brainer!
Gift cards from their favorite café or coffee equipment are the best for caffeine-loving dads. But the most practical gift, especially to dads with working kids, is money. This is not only convenient, but you can also give them the freedom to buy their own gift. As they jokingly say in the Philippines: “Greetings are good, but I need cash.”
They may not admit it but fathers have their sweet soft spot too. They tear up a bit and say that their eyes just are just wet and irritated. Personalized items have been a trend for years since these make people feel special, dads included! From shirts, mugs, key chains, caricatures, and handkerchiefs, fathers will surely love these.
Given the economic status of the country, with or without the pandemic, Filipinos would always prefer great quality at a budget-friendly price, and who would not? Low-priced products may attract you at first, but it is better to spend just a bit more to ensure the quality and longevity of the product.
If the item is not up to par with your standards, there is a tendency of buying the same things again and this becomes less practical. Getting an item that is not only affordable but also durable is the best way to go. Just make sure that they are within your budget. If not, you can divide the cost amongst your siblings for one big gift.
Without further ado, we would like to present the best Father's Day gifts you can buy online. This top 10 list has a good variety of products for the different needs, wants, hobbies, and interests of our dads.
