June has officially landed and while we’re all about the craze of summer activities, let’s not forget that Father’s Day is also just around the corner. Much like how we made our moms feel that they are the most wonderful human being on the planet last month, let’s make it equally special for our Dads on their special day.
Let’s admit it though, it is always so much easier to find that perfect gift or treat for Mom than for Dad. We get it, so we’ve rounded up a few gift ideas for every type of dad that you can easily buy around the city!
Small Leather Goods for the Practical Dad
What dad doesn’t appreciate a utility item in the form of leather? This year, buy him something he can use daily such as a bi-fold wallet or a belt. Purchase our suggested pieces at either Fossil or Lacoste Accessories at the Venetian Macao. Both retailers are well known for producing quality leather goods for a reasonable price.
Fossil 736 Market Street, Level 3, The Venetian, Estrada da Baia de Nossa Senhora da Esperanca, Cotai, +853 2882 8007, www.venetianmacao.com/fossil
LaCoste Accessories 863a Grand Canal Street, Level 3, The Venetian, Estrada da Baia de Nossa Senhora da Esperanca, Cotai, +853 2882 8100, www.venetianmacao.com/lacoste
Grooming Kit for the Dapper Dad
If your dad is the kind who is keen on maintaining his grooming and well-being, a box full of skincare products might be what you need to get his spirit up this Father’s Day. Look for Lab Series at New Yaohan for a wide selection of skincare products for men. If you’re unsure of what products to pick up, ask for their pre-selected gift sets. Another option with similar products is Kiehl’s located at Galaxy Macau.
Lab Series 1F New Yaohan, 90 Avenida Doutor Mário Soares, Macau, +853 2872 5338, www.newyaohan.com
Kiehl’s G042, The Promenade Shops, Galaxy Macau, Estrada da Baía de Nossa Senhora da Esperança, Cotai, www.galaxymacau.com/kiehls
Swimwear for the Fun-loving and Outgoing Dad
We’re pretty sure that your Dad will hit the beach or the swimming pool one of these days now that the heat is upon us. Why not gift him with some slick new swimwear will never go out of style?
Swedish fashion brand Nikben produces exceptional quality swim shorts in unique and vibrant prints that definitely scream tropical happiness. Every piece from its collections are made out of quick drying premium fabric that resists fading, this will be Dad’s favourite swim wear ever. Find the shorts stocked at Kapok in Hong Kong or online at HolyStreet.com. And of course we give you a second option just in case you need some choices—similar stylish swim shorts can be found from French fashion brand Vilebrequin which is located at the Shoppes at Parisian.
Watch for the Classic Dad
Nothing can be a more classic gift than a timeless timepiece. And while not everybody can afford a piece from Rolex or Omega, there are always more affordable options such as Seiko and G-Shock by Casio. Both retailers offer high-quality and performance watches from low to high price points, and both are located in the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian.
Seiko K6, Grand Canal Street, Level 3, The Venetian, Estrada da Baia de Nossa Senhora da Esperanca, Cotai, www.venetianmacao.com/seiko
G-Factory, K5, Grand Canal Street, Level 3, The Venetian, Estrada da Baia de Nossa Senhora da Esperanca, Cotai, www.venetianmacao.com/g-factory
TV accessories for the Home-buddy Dad
For the dad who enjoys staying at home watching a movie or catching up on the latest episode of his favourite TV series, an Apple TV is the ticket. It’s inexpensive and if he happens to own an iPhone, it works with many other TV and game applications that are already probably on his iPhone or are easy to download. The Apple TV is available at the Apple Store at Galaxy Macau. And if you want to take it up a notch, throw in a one-year Netflix subscription while you’re at it.
Apple Store G037 & G039, 1006, The Promenade Shops, Galaxy Macau, Estrada da Baía de Nossa Senhora da Esperança, Cotai, +853 8791 9000, www.galaxymacau.com/apple-store
