All the yuletide blessings and cheers aside, have you already bought something for your dear parents? Yes? Good boy/girl. Not yet? Click here if it's only your mom who's still unchecked in your shopping list.
If it's good ol' pops though, don't worry! Take a look at our list below of fool-proof, 100-percent satisfaction guaranteed, you’ll-finally-make-your-dad-proud-for-once gift guide!
1) Taylormade Ghost Tour Maranello 81 Putter 35 (with cover)
We don’t know much about golf but this putter looks sleek AF doesn’t it? We also read that it has "[a] new multi-material 8020 PureRoll insert 80 percent Surlyn and 20 percent aluminum for smooth roll and profound feel." We don't know exactly what that means, but we bet it's something nice about this product. Yep, golf is deep.
Seriously, if your dad golfs or is a fan of the sport, you can't go wrong with this.

2) Men’s UA Gold Mesh Stretch Fit Cap
To cool off the usually hot-headed father of yours, why not try this quick-dry, sun-protector cap that’ll help him breeze through that fairway (or wherever he is outdoors) in no time and in style.
Score for: P1,395 via Under Armour branches around the metro
3) Onitsuka Tiger: Curreo Sneakers
Most dads prefer comfort over looks. So, when getting shoes for your father, the best way is to go with something that offers max comfort down there, like these pair. Plus, it actually looks good, too!
Score for: Starts at P2,700 via Zalora.com.ph
4) Deluxe Vehicle GPS Tracker
Because proud, mature men hate asking for directions, a GPS gizmo like the Deluxe Vehicle GPS Tracker for the family van would be a nice gift for your dad. Say goodbye to reading physical maps (which can be dangerous while driving) and the sometimes awkward "Itanong mo nga kay manong" moments with this baby!

5) Chicago Live In Manila tickets
Screwed up big time this year? What better way to say you’re sorry than buying your dad a ticket to a classic rock concert? Make it two and include your mom for a romantic evening for your folks! Consider yourself forgiven.
Score for: Tickets start at P1,575 via Ticketnet.com.ph
6) Johnnie Walker Black Label
Nothing says "I love you, pops" like a smoky bottle of his favorite whisky. When was the last time you shared a drink with your dad? Time to catch up, son!
Score for: P7,300 to P9,000 via liquor stores around the metro
7) Hickok 15000 Genuine Leather Reversible Belt
Is your dad trying to lose his dad bod? Show him your support by gifting him a sturdy belt that actually fits him, so he can finally throw away that old belt that has way too many hammer-adjusted holes.
Score for: P800 via Lazada.com.ph
8) Greatnes D&D 2 Wheel Self-Balancing Drifting Electric Scooter
Introduce your dad to the future of personal transportation with this pseudo-hoverboard. Before you make him ride it though, be his "driving instructor." Doing so lessens the chances of him becoming one of these poor people. Also: instant father-son bonding!
Score for: P7,700 (discounted price) via Lazada.com.ph
9) A new haircut via The Union Station Barber
As we grow older, we prioritize our looks less and other stuff (read: making money) more. Chances are your dad's hair needs a better style or shape. Gift him with a trip to a nice barber shop and watch your mom approve of the result.
Score for: P300 via The Union Station Barber on Facebook
10) Seiko 5 wrist watch
A nice, semi-fancy watch could just be the thing to spruce up you dad's t-shirt-and-shorts outfit with a little bit of class. Try going for metallic and silver or gold colors for a truly "premium" look.
