Missing those fun family outings to the cinema? What if you could have a movie screening at home this Father's Day?

4. Sports/gym duffle bag

Is your dad a health and fitness enthusiast? If he often hits the gym or the neighbourhood sports arena, you could consider getting him a new (or bigger) gym bag! It's functional and convenient, and you can pick a style that suits your dad's specific needs. If you're doubtful whether he'll like it, don't worry — as long as your dad works out, this gift idea will too.

5. Automatic clamping wireless phone charger mount

A phone holder is a basic necessity in every car, not just for convenience's sake, but also for the driver's safety. It's easier to keep an eye on Waze/Google Maps when you're not holding your phone in one hand, and steering with the other. Although the usual magnetic phone mounts or adjustable grips can get the job done, why not level up and gift your dad a car phone holder that also doubles as a wireless charger, and has a built-in sensor that automatically clamps and releases the phone!

6. Two-in-one electronic pan grill

Pamper your dad this Father's Day with a special home-cooked meal that's lovingly prepared by the whole family. Can't decide whether you want BBQ or hotpot? Well, if you have this electronic pan grill, you won't have to choose, as you can have both at the same time! This portable appliance makes family dinners fun and entertaining, and everyone can bond while waiting for the food to cook.

7. White noise machine

The pandemic has been hard on many of us, and our parents may be experiencing sleepless nights due to worry and stress. If your dad is complaining about a lack of sleep, it might be a good idea to get him a white noise machine for his bedroom. White noise machines help block out environmental sounds, and may help people to fall asleep quicker, or get a better night's rest.

8. Robot vacuum cleaner

If your dad has been constantly doing house chores, you can get him a robot vacuum cleaner so he can finally put his feet up and relax while the robot vacuums and mops the floor. Robot vacuums are convenient, compact, and are able to fit in small nooks and crannies where all the dust-bunnies lay untouched. Most will reliably get the job done faster than the traditional way, so your dad will have extra time to pursue other hobbies.

Encourage your dad to adopt a healthy, plant-based lifestyle by buying him lots of tasty snacks like mixed nuts, gourmet peanut butter, shortbread, cookies, energy squares, dried fruit, chips and crisps, and even instant meals made with natural, organic ingredients. Who says eating clean is boring or difficult? Make up a thoughtful Father's Day care package with all your dad's favourites, and he'll be sure to enjoy them.

10. Ergonomic mouse

Does your dad spend long hours working on a laptop/computer? If so, you can get him a cool ergonomic mouse to help elevate any existing wrist, hand, or arm pain, and correct wrong mousing techniques by promoting more natural positions. You can also get him other work-from-home technology like a Bluetooth keyboard, high definition webcam, or an external monitor so he can work more comfortably and efficiently.

12. Phone sanitiser

Did you know that your smartphone is crawling with tons of germs and bacteria? Ever since the pandemic, we've been constantly sanitising our hands and tables. However, many people neglect the importance of regularly sterilising our phones. Although this mini ultraviolet (UV) light sanitiser is built to hold phones of varying sizes, it can also fit small items like credit cards, wallets, spectacles, and more.
