For every child, his father is his hero, a superman and a role model whom he looks up to for any kind of help, love and support. A father’s unconditional love cannot be reciprocated, but one can surely make do with some pampering this Father’s Day. If you are in a fix over what to gift, fret not, as like always.

HT City comes to your rescue. We bring in various options for you to choose from to make your dad feel special on this day.

If your dad is busy with meetings most of the time, and often has to commute here and there, anything from a portable charger to a laptop case, Bluetooth headset, notepad or even a backpack to make his travelling comfortable would be a great idea.If your dad — like most fathers — is a workaholic and gets no time to focus on his health, he would love a spa coupon, yoga mat or a body and foot massager.

However, if you like to keep things simple, just host a family dinner for him and he will surely cherish the special moments. If your father loves socialising, you can even invite his friends over for a barbeque and drinks. Arrange a get together and put together his favorite activity for him to relax and have fun. For a father who is a music lover, headphones, a collection of his all-time favourite songs in an iPod or a pendrive make for a great gifting option.

Fitness merchandise and deodorants always work for the sporty fathers. Better still, watch his favourite sport with him and don’t run after the remote control this time.

Suits, watches, grooming kit and signature pens are always the safe options for most dads. If your dad is at home, retired and relaxing, get him a holiday voucher or gift him his favourite author’s books.

If he is the spiritual kinds, he would love his favourite idols, a religious book or a devotional CD. For a social drinker, a sparkling bottle of Glenlivet or Jack Daniels never goes wrong.

And if you don’t get time to buy any of these, just try spending quality time with your dad. That is, after all, the biggest gift you can give him on this day.
