Here’s what we’re getting our dads today
Every day's a reason to celebrate the best men in our lives
Jun 18, 2017
It’s that time of the year again, and yes, believe it or not, Father’s Day gifts are just as important as any other holiday or birthday present, thus attention must be paid to honor the main men in our lives. We’ve put together a list of things your dad wants but is too shy to ask you for, from bare necessities to little excesses, after all you only get to celebrate this day once a year so might as well splurge–and who knows, you might also benefit from these.
Bevtools Old-fashion Cocktail Kit
Named after the classic cocktail, this kit has nearly all the ingredients for a perfect night-in as it contains the bare necessities including a bottle of bourbon and bitters, making it easy for just about anyone to mix their own drink. It’s easy way to satisfy your old man’s thirst for the quintessential bourbon concoction, Old Fashioned, without having to leave the comforts of home. Your dad can also play barista and impress his guests while he’s at it.
Nothing speaks laidback while still exuding that preppy vibe than a Fred Perry M12 shirt. With its signature twin tipped collar, the M12 has since been the most popular offering from the English clothing store, an essential for any self-respecting man. It goes with just about anything (well maybe except cargo shorts, dad) and makes it a breeze for the main man in your life to go about the day to day hustle with its sleek silhouette and breathable cotton material.
Available at Fred Perry Laurel Wreath, Greenbelt 5; Fred Perry Authentic, SM Megamall, Power Plant Mall, Bonifacio High Street Central, Robinsons Magnolia, SM Mall of Asia, TriNoma.
While your mom was probably right about warning your dad about wearing slippers outdoors, well there actually are slippers which still look dignified, whether worn indoors or outdoors, without compromising that easy and comfy feel.
Taste maybe an acquired trait, however, that doesn’t mean you should discount altogether the possibility that your affinity for certain things may have come from, well, like it or not, your father, including when it comes to choosing scents.
Since its first outing in Manila last year, the Irish whiskey brand has had quite some following in local speakeasies. Each batch is matured in oak barrels for 3 years in Middleton, Ireland to arrive at a distinct taste which of any man who knows his drink could discern only to be that of premium quality Irish whiskey.
Boasting its own brewery at the heart of Poblacion, this local craft beer brand is more than just its unique bottle labels. Did we mention you can get a taste of freshly brewed beer right out of their tanks when you visit their Tasting Room. Available in packs of 4s or 6s, and in different variants, local beer at its best for the finest gents.
