Five Relaxing Gifts To Get Him For Father’s Day

Shopping for fathers can be frustrating. Most of them can buy what they want whenever they want. It takes some imagination to get them something different.

If you aren’t sure what to your father this year, we’ve curated a list of gifts that will give your dad the most relaxing Father’s Day weekend ever!


Relaxation tickets

Your dad has worked so hard to provide and be the best father for you. Why don’t you give him some time off? Treat your dad to a luxurious spa treatment. Spas provide a full range of relaxing treatments including indulgent massage and exfoliation for men. It is the perfect way for your dad to de-stress. Alternatively, you can get him a gift voucher to visit a resort. You can get good deals online or search for places close to you that will offer holiday or Father’s Day deals.

Comfy clothes

A relaxing weekend or vacation needs comfy clothes. Get your dad comfy shoes like the Soludos Men’s Anchor Embroidered Smoking Slipper (N23,435 or $65). Chip in a breathable polo with lightweight material like the Mack Weldon Vesper Polo (N24,529 or $68). Get cosy Tommy John Go Anywhere Sweat Shorts (N23,435 or $65) for him to stay stylish and comfortable. Better still, get him a gift card so that he can choose what he likes best. If you have some money left to spare, add a head nap pillow for the journey.

The ultimate smart suitcase

If your dad travels a lot, whether for work or for pleasure, then this is the perfect time to get him a smart carry-on suitcase. The Away Carry-On Suitcase (N81,120 or $225) has a built-in battery and two USB ports that will guarantee that he’s never left stranded at an airport. You can also throw in a Polo Ralph Lauren Men’s Military Toiletry Bag (N38950 or $108) so that he travels with his toiletries in style.

Life-saving gadgets

We are in a digital era. Our dads also have to be a part of it. The Amazon Echo (N50,470 or $140) virtual assistant, Alexa, can forecast the weather, read audiobooks, order food, tell Dad jokes and do other things that your father finds fascinating. The Automatic Pro Gold 3G Connected Car Adapter (N39655 or $110) can make your dad a smarter driver. The Tile Bluetooth Tracker (N9015 or $25) is a way make sure that he never loses his keys, glasses or the remote again.

I love you notes

Get him a card or a “World’s Best Dad” mug that tells him how much you love and appreciate him. You can also write different notes, telling him why you love him. Put them in a jar and give to him. He can read a note every day to remind him of how special he is to you. In the end, the most important thing is letting your father know that you love him. That is the best gift of all. A customised mug should cost between N5050 ($14) and N7220 ($20).
