Let's face it. Dads don’t get as much press as moms do, but that doesn’t mean they’re not as important as their female counterparts. Whether your dad is a guy’s guy or the workaholic CEO type, let him know just how awesome he is with the perfect Father’s Day gift!
Rise and shine outdoorsy dad
He can withstand any kind of weather and knows how to tie and untie any kind of knot. Once upon a time, perhaps he’s even drank his own piss on a camping-trip-gone-wrong, ala 127 Hours. His idea of the perfect family vacation is to hike up a mountain, watch the sunset with his kids, and fall asleep under the stars. (Your mom has probably been trying to postpone that trip for five years now.) Make your outdoorsy dad a happy camper, and quite literally too, by getting him a tent for his future trips! You can opt for the proudly Filipino-made Apexus Tadpole.

Gadget geek dad
You can fool the grown-ups about tech-related stuff and tell them that Twitter is where you search things on Google (like this guy did), but not your old man. He knows his gadgets inside out without reading the manual, and even knew about internet Easter eggs way before you did (haha n00b). Get him an awesome new toy for Father’s Day in the form of the Samsung Galaxy S3. He, of all people, will know that there are 19 pro-S3 reasons versus only 10 for the iPhone 4S.
Your best friend is the happiest he’s ever been with his firstborn, but you’ve noticed that his eyebags have never been worse either. The best gift for new dads is something money can’t buy – sleep – but you can help make his few hours of shut-eye extra comfortable. The Sonata Pillow from Tempur will give him the most revitalising rest for all the daddy activities filling up his day!
You're still a Cinderella with the midnight curfew, but it's a lot better than being told to be home by 2100 hours. If your dad scares the sh*t out of all your suitors, not to mention the rest of the neighborhood, he is a hardass dad who most probably owns many guns that would necessitate a gun rack. This Father's Day, give him the satisfaction of seeing the blood drain out of your boy-who's-just-a-friend's face upon laying eyes on your old man's lovely collection of guns.
Athletic dads are super fit, super healthy, and super competitive. No matter how tight his schedule is, your dad never misses a work out – whether it’s at the gym, in the pool, or his current favorite hobby: running. The Nike+ Sportswatch (GPS) instantly tracks distance, time, pace, heart rate, and even calories, making it the perfect companion for your athletic dad.
All your friends agree that you’ve got the coolest dad in your barkada. He doesn’t embarrass you, gets your pop culture references, and even smokes the occasional…cigarette. But seriously, your dad is awesome because you can talk to him about anything, and he listens both as a friend and a father. Let him know that you know just how lucky you are, without being too cheesy. Say hello to more beer bonding sessions with your dad with the perfect addition to his bar set, Craft Brew Beer Tasting Glasses.

You owe your impressive repertoire of trivia to your
intellectual dad who, for as long as you can remember, just knew everything
about everything. He loves to read, is always on top of current events, and can
explain the Krebs cycle off the top of his head. Your dad is a geek at heart,
and undeniably the coolest one you know. Unleash the inner child in him with

Your foodie dad treats you to the most exquisite fine dining restos, and also discovers the best hole-in-the-wall joints. But everyone knows that all he really wants is to cook up a great barbecue for the family on Sundays. Help a father out and choose between Gourdo’s Foldable Galaxy Grill, or the Foldable Trolley BBQ. That way, the fambam enjoys dad’s cooking, without mom throwing a fit about cleaning up afterwards!

He’s texting your mom while emailing a client while on the phone with yet another incompetent employee. The CEO dad has everything in the world, except time on his hands. So what can you possibly give the man who has everything? Trust us, he would rather spend the day watching TV with you rather than bossing other people around. Tell him to save a day for you and treat him to a no-holds-barred buffet at Vikings. He’ll definitely enjoy gorging out, but the best part will be spending quality time with you!
Let us know what your dad is like and what you're getting him for Father's Day!
