A treat for all dads

Ricardo Preto

STILL don’t know what to get dad for Father’s Day? While it’s never easy to shop for someone who insists “anything” will do, Rustan’s has put together a list of exciting ways to spend with dad, along with gift ideas to make his day extra special.

Gifts He’ll Love

For dads who love a good adventure and weekend family trips a fedora hat from Dorfman Pacific would add a punch of fun and pop of color to a functional travel wardrobe. Comfy shoes and cool shades are crucial to enjoy long walks by the sea or around the city; get 10 percent off on select sunglasses from Rayban until June 30, and choose from New Balance and Under Armour for the perfect pair of sneakers.

For the utilitarian man with a soft spot for cheesy humor, choose novelty items that are practical as they are too interesting to resist: a Buxton wallet with multiple pockets for cards, a Discovery Shop jewelry box for prized possessions, a Dopp antique money clip, and Thompson cufflinks, that are surely a conversation starter. Does the main man in the house love a good drink? A flask from Espacio Handmade, shot glasses with leather cases from Kikkerland, and the most adorable Super Dad mug from Thumbs Up will make them smile every time they use it.

For those who have a sartorial side, get shirts from Ascot Chang, Pedro del Hierro, or Ricardo Preto, which dads will proudly wear for casual and special occasions. Add an extra something by throwing in a few accessories such as pocket squares from Tie Bar, a belt from Pedro del Hierro, or even shoes from Allen Edmonds.

On the other hand, for the laid-back dad who likes to keep things casual at work and at home, gift him with fine shirts from Jack Nicklaus, a crossbody bag from Piquadro, a distressed leather bracelet from Thompson London, or a supple pair of suede oxfords from Kurt Geiger.

For the Men of the Moment While they’d be inclined to say otherwise, Dads love to get out of the house and do something fun for their special day, too. Open to all shoppers, with no minimum purchase required, Rustan’s has prepared fun Father’s Day in-store activities and freebies that dads and the rest of the family may enjoy.

On June 16 and 17, get free grooming by Philips, shoe cleaning by Crep Protect and Young Americana. Indulge in a quick massage or enjoy sample artisan hot and cold drinks at the Coffee and Beer bars.

Celebrate all things men from 3 to 7 p.m. this June 16 and 17. Rustan’s is located at Ayala Center Cebu. (PR)
