Best gifts for your dad that don’t include socks.

Are you preparing that last-minute Father’s Day gift, which are socks (again? We know.) Your dad has probably moved mountains for you, and we think he deserves a little more credit than socks, don’t you think? To us, dads are unsung heroes, knights in shining armour, and most of all, he’s our biggest fan.

Pops may say he does not want anything for Father's Day this year, but you know things will get awkward when you pass him the pair of socks at the breakfast table. It’s only right to get him a Father's Day gift that shows how much you appreciate him. We understand how hard it is to find a gift that will truly show your appreciation for him, which is why we’ve prepared this handy little gift guide to help you out.

Here are the top 5 gifts we think would truly make your dad feel he’s the number one luckiest man alive. You can thank us later.

A practical yet luxurious gift, the Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier 3H

The Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier 3H is one of those subtle, yet truly practical gifts. It’s just there, but knowing that it’s taking care of the needs of the entire family in the room. The purifier features an all-new air duct system that increases the air purifier’s PM CADR (add the long form words of this short form) by 22%* to 380 m³/h. What that essentially means is it delivers 6330 litres of purified air per minute.

The best part? This air purifier comes with a high-precision laser PM sensor that can detect microscopic particles in the air and proactively reports and adjusts based on the air quality of the room. Imagine how happy and comfortable your dad would feel knowing that he is breathing in clean and fresh air, especially for dads who have sinus issues. This gift is a must for avoiding hay fever as Spring is around the corner.

A need for fitness fanatic dads, the Xiaomi Mi Smart Band 6.

The all-new Xiaomi Mi Band 6 keeps the fitness fanatic dad fantastic. It comes with 30 fitness modes to record your calorie burn accurately, and at the same time, tracking your dad’s Blood oxygen saturation (SpO₂) levels which is an important physiological parameter of the respiratory cycle of the human body. Not only does it keep his body in check, he can also quickly check for notifications from his phone, and check for calls without needing to dig for his phone from his pocket. Not only are you keeping the man healthy, you’re also keeping him on track with his daily routine.

Girls just wanna have fun? Trust us, dads too.

What makes the Xiaomi Scooter Pro 2 stand out from the crowd is that it has a smarter and longer-lasting battery life. That gets your dad from point A to point B without worrying about the battery, and there’s still enough power for a round trip! Moreover, if your dad’s the kind that has the need for speed, he can easily switch between 3-speed modes by pressing the power button twice. Not forgetting how convenient it is for him to bring it around because it’s foldable and only 14.2 kg. This would check off all the boxes as the perfect gift for your dad because who doesn’t love cruising around in a scooter, what more an electric scooter. And while he’s having fun, he’s also saving the earth.

Still can’t decide what to get for your dad? Don’t worry, the Parker Razor is here to shave the day!

The beautifully crafted Parker Variant Adjustable Razor is known for its durability and precision. What makes this razer so unique and a favourite amongst all men is the fact that the blade angle can be adjusted to their liking. All your dad needs to do is turn the knob located at the bottom of the razor to adjust the exposure of the blade. You don’t have to worry about whether your dad would like this razer or not because its customisable features will accommodate different hair thicknesses, skin types and experience levels.

Saving the best for the last, here is the Hario v60 drip decanter.

Throw that instant coffee away and get your dad the exquisite Hario v60 drip decanter. Made from high-quality heatproof glass, polypropylene and silicone rubber, this decanter will produce magnificent coffee just for your dad. The drip decanter is used for the pour-over method, which is popular among coffee lovers because it allows them to control the temperature of the water, the rate at which it enters the grounds, the amount of time it brews, and how much it makes. So your dad can control the taste, texture, temperature, and strength of the brew using this method. Practicality wise, it checks all the boxes as the silicone band can be easily removed and washed. You’ve got to know that you’re not just giving him a decanter, you’re giving him the gift of great mornings.

Lastly, it all comes down to the bond you have with your dad. If the gifts above don’t suit him, that’s okay. Figure out something that he’d like, or maybe you can even make something for him. The thought is what counts when it comes to gifting, and I’m sure your dad will appreciate anything that comes from you.

We hope this list was of help to you, and we’d like to wish all dads out there a Happy Father’s Day. We’re nothing today, if it weren’t for the love and care you’ve showered us over the years of bringing us up. We love you, and that’s straight from our hearts.
