You’ve probably picked up a lot of interesting (but totally useless) facts from this guy right here. Actually, it’s a great conversation starter on a first date when you blurt out “Did you know that…?”. We bet you’ve stolen a few lines from him. If museums are his kind of thing, take him out on a date to Armed Forces of the Philippines Museum. You’ll both learn a thing or two from the country’s finest heroes and see an artillery collection up close. Fees range from PHP 10-25.

Yep, your old man is one! A big fan of OT’s or glued to his laptop, he never seems to stop working because he’s so dedicated to his career. On Father’s Day, remind him that he needs to take breaks every now and then. Go on the hunt for the best craft beers in town. Everyone knows they’re best paired with burgers!  This is a great time to unwind and talk about everything that’s not work-related. It’s a sign that there is life outside of his work!

5The Game Whiz

If you spent a significant chunk of your childhood playing board games like chess and Scrabble, thank your dad. It’s probably because he wanted you to spend more time indoors than outdoors. He’s quite the champion and generally beats everyone at any game. Talk about serious competition! Spend this year’s Father’s Day with him at Ludo: Boardgame Bar & Cafe. Challenge him to an exciting game from their giant collection. It’s a good thing that a Game Master is available, ready to explain the mechanics of a game. We wouldn’t be surprised if he screams out in glee once he’s played those cards right *walk away slowly*

Your father could be the next Sherlock Holmes, thanks to his brilliant schemes. Before you go out, he asks all the W- (Who, what, etc.) questions. His nonstop texts continuously bother and have prevented you from having an awesome night out. He can get a bit overprotective at times. Challenge your dad to a game at Mystery Manila! A good hour of sleuthing can bring out the best (or worst) from your relationship. Test your skills at Sinister Sensorium, Pym Particle, Debby’s Doll, Crime of the Century, Virtual Voyage, and Mutants’ Mission. Out of all of these Father’s Day gift ideas, this one is the most exciting yet! Prices begin at PHP 400 per person.

8Food Collector

A little on the heavy side, your dad is the best chef in the family. Aside from that, he’s always game when it comes to trying new dishes. Perhaps, you had to help him open his own account in Instagram to collect all of his jaw-dropping food sessions. It isn’t exactly a secret that exercise isn’t exactly his BFF. Because of his affinity for food, take him out on a buffet date so that he can eat to his heart’s content. After all, a satisfied tummy is always a happy customer! Remind him to take his maintenance meds before a big meal. Health check!

It shouldn’t take this holiday for us to express our sentiments towards Daddy-O. Every day is a blessing spent with them. Let’s take this chance to truly thank them for everything that they’ve provided our families. We certainly hope that this list of Father’s Day gift ideas does the trick of putting a big jolly smile on his face. Philihappy greets a Happy Father’s Day to every awesome father out there!
