  • For the tea drinker: 2019 Darjeeling Nouveau, from TWG Tea
    2 / 10 For the tea drinker: 2019 Darjeeling Nouveau, from TWG Tea

    Hailed as the King of Black Teas and the Champagne of Teas, the darjeeling tea is a fitting tribute to the king of your household. After all, darjeeling is a premium, highly coveted tea that is only grown in the foothills of the Himalayas in the West Bengal state of India. This gorgeous new offering by TWG Tea is a blend of harvests from the first flush, and boasts fruity, light, floral notes that resemble muscat (Moscato) wine. Packaged in a lavish elegantly designed airtight tin, it’s part of TWG Tea’s Haute Couture Tea Collection and will thrill any tea lover. Besides, darjeeling tea boasts impressive health benefits — it’s abundant in antioxidants, promotes weight loss and reduces blood pressure levels and cardiovascular disease risk, to name a few — so Dad would appreciate the thought put to his health.

    About: $55, available at all TWG Tea Salons and Boutiques. Visit TWGTea.com for more info.

Emotional, meaningful and a priceless keepsake, Dad will surely love the walk down memory lane. Just make sure he doesn’t procrastinate on his task!

  • or the one with pent-up emotions: The Fragment Room
    6 / 10 or the one with pent-up emotions: The Fragment Room

    Men often have a lot of pent-up emotions and anger that they can’t release or articulate well, thanks to the strong silent men stereotype in society. The Fragment Room is a safe space for them to let loose and vent while smashing items such as televisions, laptops and glass. Even if Dad is a peace-loving bloke, it’ll be oddly satisfying for him to just throw things around, just for the fun of it. The Fragment Room is currently on a hiatus as it moves from its Balestier Road outlet to a new space along MacPherson Road, but they’re slated to re-open on June 8, just in time for the Father’s Day weekend. Coincidental? We think not. You can even join him for a wrecking good time. Head to their website for more information.

    About: Packages start from $38. At 490 MacPherson Road, Singapore 368198 from June 8.

    7 / 10 For the one who loves quality footwear: Jonathan Abel bespoke service

    There’s nothing more suave than a man looking dapper in a suit with a great pair of footwear as the pièce de résistance. This Father’s Day, elevate your dad’s style to new heights with local premium footwear label Jonathan Abel’s bespoke footwear service. Jonathan Abel prides itself on creating quality, luxury-level shoes at an accessible price tag. Crafted in a small family-run factory in Portugal, its footwear is constructed with sustainably-sourced leathers and Goodyear welting — where the upper and soles are stitched together rather than glued — to ensure the soles can withstand wear and tear. Most importantly, this construction allows the soles to be replaced, which means the shoes can be worn for much longer. Its bespoke service allows you to customise the shoe style, colour, leather, outsole material, insole colour, laces and size, offering over five million possibilities. The made-to-order service is currently available only by appointment but you can head to their counter at Takashimaya Department Store level 3 for ready-to-wear pieces made with the same quality.

    About: Jonathan Abel bespoke service costs upwards of $450 while ready-to-wear starts at $190.
