It’s that time of year again where you have an extra reason to treat your dad: Father’s Day! With just two weeks left, it’s definitely time to start scouting for gifts, especially since deliveries are pretty overwhelmed at the moment. So here we are again with a Father’s Day gift guide, which helps promote some local businesses and brands at the same time. Happy shopping, and Happy Father’s Day in advance!
1) Sweet Treats
There’s nothing easier than getting food as a gift, because everyone loves food! For sweet treats, check out @theweekndbakers, who are currently running a Father’s Day special. Choose from a dark chocolate tart with sea salt, or a delectable classic tiramisu. Plus, if you can show them a picture of you and dear ol’ dad, and describe him using only one word, you will also get a cash voucher for your next purchase! To order and learn about delivery options, get in touch with them directly!
Head over to Batik Boutique, where they have prepared a Father’s Day collection specially! Choose from their batik gift sets, which include a batik necktie and batik pocket square, or get a batik shirt on its own! Their batik shirts are hand-painted by artisans in Malaysia, so they’re all unique. It’s a win-win situation here and you’ll be supporting those artisans, and getting an awesome gift for dad too!
“Shoes maketh the man.” This Father’s Day, why not get your dad a pair of new shoes? Whether formal shoes, sneakers, loafers or moccasins, you can get them all at Tomaz. If that’s not enough, they also have a range of accessories to go with the shoes. Pick up a wallet, office bag or cardholder to complement the shoes! Also, on a slightly unrelated note, if you’re a gamer, you might want to check out all-new gaming chair. If dad’s a gamer maybe this could be a gift too?
If your dad’s a seafood lover, opt to prepare his favourite seafood dishes at home! It’s more meaningful, and you won’t have to eat out and be in the crowd, since the pandemic isn’t over yet. What’s better is that you get seafood delivered right to your doorstep, so check out Seafood Hamper. Seafood Hamper has sales sometimes, and their range of seafood is wide as well. Tiger prawns, crabs, lobsters, scallops, oysters and of course various fishes… you name it, they have it.
5) Health Products
You know what they say, health is wealth! Sometimes our parents may neglect their health, or think it’s unnecessary to take good care. So help your dad out this Father’s Day by getting him some health products, whether traditional or not. For the TCM inclined, head over to Eu Yan Sang, where they currently have a Parents’ Day sale. If you’re thinking more of Western supplements, you can get them conveniently at Watsons. However, if you think you need a little assistance about what you’re getting, try Esyms, an online pharmacy where pharmacists can help you out.
Encourage your dad to stay active by getting him some sportswear! For an all-day, all-purpose shirt, FitGear has a wind t-shirt, available in several colours. Dad doesn’t have to wear it only when he’s working out, it could be great for casual wear as well. Besides a T-shirt, you can also pick up a towel, or even a drypack if dad’s really outdoorsy and adventurous.
7) Healthy Snacks
It’s common for a lot of us to munch on things idly, so why not make the switch to healthy snacks instead of junk food? Two places you can get healthy snacks from are Signature Market and Amazin’ Graze. At Signature Market, you can get an assortment of dried fruits, nuts, cookies and even chips! Bundle them together and you have a custome-made snack hamper! At Amazin’ Graze you can get those items, and also nut butter if you want to pick something up for breakfast as well!
This sounds like a typical, typical “dad gift”, but we’re sure he will appreciate the sentiment nevertheless. Don’t know what to buy or where to start? Let us point you in the right direction! Our Top 10 Alcohol Delivery Services in KL & Selangor for delivery, or Top 10 Wine Shops in KL & Selangor for wine connoisseurs or for those who need some assistance are good places to start!
9) Massage Chairs
There’s actually almost nothing that can beat the feeling of sinking into one of these massive, comfy chairs and letting it do its job, especially after a long day. Currently, Ogawa is having a sale, and you can enjoy discounts up to 79% off! If a massage chair isn’t what you’re looking for, perhaps you can also consider the rest of their accessories.
