It’s Father’s Day on Sunday; do you know what present you’ll be giving your dad?
Quit it with the generic socks, the “Best Dad in the World “ mugs, and all the other inane doodads that just end up cluttering his desk and underwear drawers. The man who has been a great provider and father figure to you deserves more than last-minute gift ideas, okay? If you’re still at a loss on what to get him, here are our great suggestions. Really great.
Clockwise from top:
Lomokino camera, Php4,650. Available at Satchmi. Preserve more memories together in a cooler way other than wielding that goddamned selfie stick.

Bicycle cufflinks from Babette Wasserman. Available at Rustan’s. Fancy yet whimsical to match his personality.
Valadez white low-top sneakers from Kurt Geiger. Available at Rustan’s. Update your father’s daily casual look in the easiest and most stylish way possible. Bonus: if you share the same foot size, you can borrow these too.
Gentleman’s Hardware Master of All Trades multi-tool kit from Wild & Wolf. Available at Rustan’s. Help him relive his McGyver fantasies with something handy that can be actually used around the house.
Snare straw fedora from Goorin Bros. Available at Rustan’s. It’ll have your dad looking super duper fly (plus it’ll hide his bald spot).

A vinyl of Brilliant Corners by Thelonious Monk, Php2,195.20. Available at Satchmi. Because only the best kind of jazz will do.
