Finding a suitable gift for the hero in your life can be notoriously difficult. However, before you buy him another boring tie, have a look at our recommendations.

Spoil that all-important man in your life with The Body Shop’s White Musk® for Men EDT. A clever cocktail of soft lavender, bold and citrusy geranium, warm and woody cruelty-free musk, and smooth and creamy sandalwood, this timeless fragrance is one dad will want to use every day. Even more appealing is the fact that 93% of its ingredients are of natural origin.

$45, 100ml; available at all The Body Shop outlets, as well as online on their official Shopee and Lazada stores


Egg dad on in his fitness goals by getting him a pair of snazzy running shoes from Skechers.

As dad grows older, it’s only natural that you start worrying about his health. Put those worries to rest by gifting him Ocean Health’s Joint-RX® UC-II® Formula.

This unavoidable layer of grime lowers the running efficiency of the engine, meaning higher emissions, decreased power output and higher fuel consumption.
