Cool Father’s Day Gifts for Every Type of Dad


ICYMK—Father’s Day is officially on June 18, Sunday. It feels like we just celebrated Mother’s Day, haven’t we? And, yet, here we are again, in a precarious and pressure-packed position to scour for the perfect present for pops before the 18th. While moms are already tricky to buy for, shopping for our dads, who seem to already have everything they need, can feel nearly impossible.

What do you give a guy who usually says he doesn’t want anything? Fear not, because we’re here to help. We’ve rounded up gift ideas for absolutely every type of dad and included those that will speak to his interests and personality—maybe a bit of something, too, that he wouldn’t dare buy for himself.  

The good news? All of them are available via the SM Malls Online app and can be shipped straight to your doorstep, so you can show up with a great gift come Father’s Day. Even better: Our picks are all on sale up to 50% off from June 16 to 18, and you can also key in the exclusive code SUPERDADS to get P150 off your orders with a minimum spend of only P400. 

Up ahead, our seven finds to get dad’s approving nod—you’re welcome. 

For the dad who lives for sports

These Adidas Men’s Continental 80 kicks capture all the nostalgic, retro styling of the classic ‘80s leather trainers, with its leather upper and split rubber cupsole and swooping two-tone stripe nailing the look. Its French Terry lining completes the throwback aesthetic. 

The Continental 80, available at Sports Central at 10% off (now P4,770 from P5,300) doesn’t just shine at face value. It’s got an overall soft feel thanks to its EVA midsole insert and OrthoLite® sockliner, which delivers a perfect combination of performance and comfort for easy and smooth strides. 

For the dad who needs his coffee to-go

Get your pa into the double-walled coffee mug—the hype is real with this one. Across the board, this nifty vessel, like the Xprezo Double Wall Glass Mug with Cover and Sleeve 450ml in Green from Surplus, keep things hot and cold for longer. Just the right present for pops who couldn’t start his day without his favorite brew—iced or otherwise. 

The mug is made from borosilicate gel double-walled glass, has a streamlined, minimalist design, and comes with a matching sleeve that make it a pleasure to look at, hold, and sip from. It’s 20% off, going for only P239.20 from P299, which means you can cop one for yourself, too!

For the dad with a penchant for perfumes

Fragrance is a pretty powerful thing—wear too little and it’s barely there; wear too much and you end up overpowering an entire room. This White Musk for Men Eau de Toilette 100ml from The Body Shop is light and subtle enough to give dad that fresh, clean long-lasting smell. 

At 20% off, from P1,895 to P1,516, it’s a clever confluence of soft and familiar lavender, bold and citrusy geranium, warm and woody cruelty-free musk, and smooth and creamy sandalwood—all the quaint and sophisticated notes delivering that iconic White Musk fragrance that The Body Shop is synonymous with. 

Plus points that it’s made with 93% ingredients of natural origin—if it’s good for the planet, then it’s definitely good for dad, too. 

For the dad whose mantra is “Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.”

In the vast beverage-vessel continuum is the insulated tumbler, which has become an eco-conscious alternative to disposable cups. The Hydro Flask 28oz Tumbler in Pacific is a winner in our books—scoring high marks in both performance and design. 

This one’s perfect for dads who are always on the move and joined at the hip with their hydration companion. The slim, powder-coated stainless-steel tumbler fits easily in hands and cup holders, and now comes with a closeable plastic lid to reduce spillage. You can scoop this up at 30% off for only P1,603 from P2,290. 

For the dad who treasures vinyl collectible toys

Dad a DC Comics fanboy? We suggest you snag this Funko POP! Heroes: Justice League The Flash and Superman Racing from Filbar’s, stat—as this is an exclusive two-pack figure from Funko’s fall convention and might get vaulted soon if you’re not fast enough. 

Get this on a (flash) deal at 50% off, from P2,300 to P1,150. It features DC’s iconic superheroes, The Flash and Superman, in action and racing. A perfect addition to his growing dossier of collectible vinyl toys.

For the dad who adores OPM 

Come in clutch with the most thoughtful yet functional Father’s Day gift when you shop this exclusive Ben&Ben DVL Vintage Pouch from Straightforward. This Daily Vegan Leather pouch is totally cruelty-free and a durable alternative to cowhide leather. It’s also water-resistant and guaranteed to last for years, so dad can use this consistently for office days or otherwise. 

Available in a wide array of classic and neutral colors, it’s also emblazoned with Ben&Ben’s official logo. If your pa loves this nine-piece folk-pop band and their poignant music, or if you want to introduce him to newer OPM, this one hits the spot. It’s on a buy-1, take-1 offer right now (yay, one for you, too!) for only P999. 

For the dad who has recently discovered skincare

Encourage and spoil your dad’s skincare regimen with the Olive Real Skin for Men 150ml from Innisfree. Add this skin-loving product to your cart for only P770 from P1,100—that’s 30% off. 

Developed with Olive Power Activator™, vitamin E, tocopherol, and oleic acid, this cleanser provides powerful benefits for dry skin, improving suppleness and creating a moisture barrier for dad’s skin. It also uses organic golden olives (aka liquid gold) from the Mediterranean, which is praised the world over for their nutritional value. 

This one isn’t complicated to use or incorporate in dad’s daily routine and already has everything he needs to keep up with his skincare—or help him deal with post-shaving nicks and bumps. 

Remember: The trick is to get dad a gift that’s equally cool and practical as it is thoughtful. 

Shop one or two (or all) our on-sale picks via your SM Malls Online app from June 16 to 18. Don’t forget to use code SUPERDADS to get P150 off on your orders with a minimum purchase of P400.
