Fathers are the first friends for their children, and forever heroes in their eyes. For your fathers, or the father to your children, Father’s Day can serve as a special day where you show your appreciation to them for being the hands-on co-parent. With Father’s Day just around the corner, have you thought of how you are celebrating this year? Although celebrations are muted due to the raging Covid-19 pandemic, it should not take away the cheer off this Father’s Day.
Here are some of The Review Collective’s gift ideas for the father figures in your life!
Get him a signature “Dad” smell this Father’s Day
As a hero to their children, fathers can often make things right again when you’re down by simply wrapping their arms around you. How would you like to be engulfed in the scent of Bleu De Chanel every time you give your dad a hug? An ode to masculinity, this timeless fragrance unites an aromatic-woody scent with a citrus-y note. Serving its olfactory function, the power of this scent can wrap its invisible arms around you and evoke all the beautiful moments you share with your dad, even years down the road. Every day can feel like Father’s Day with this lingering scent.
“Got it for my dad and he has never bought another brand since. The scent was great and long lasting. My father can be picky at times but this perfume definitely exceeded his expectations. I’m sure other men out there will love it.” – @XMISSNICOLE
If you’re going for a more understated yet manly scent, Dior Sauvage might be your pick. With a top note of bergamot, this cologne has a woody undertone, leaving you with a whiff that is not overpowering.
“The initial notes is not too overwhelming and the middle notes are just perfect for hot temperature like Singapore” – @BERNARDKOH_JJ

I may be going out on a limb here to say that ladies tend to invest more on their skincare routine than men. If you agree, and would like the men in your life to pamper themselves, look no further than the Aesop Moroccan Neroli Shaving Serum. An after shave that oozes botanical goodness, it not only smells good, but is also gentle on skin that has just been ravaged by the razor. Your loved ones might just thank you for introducing a new favourite to their after shave routine.
For the Adventurous, Sporty, Outdoor Dad
Mount and capture. That’s all you have to do with GoPro Hero5 to capture all your precious family moments. With its “unshakeable” feature, blurry shots will be the last worry on your mind. Whether you are neck-deep in the ocean, gliding through the skies, or hiking in a rainforest, your father will treasure the GoPro Hero5 as a charming accessory to document family moments.
“I have been using this camera for more than a year now and it had proved it’s worth! For me it is the best specially when you love to travel as it have a lot of accessories you can use like just strapping it on your chest or maybe putting it at the strap of your bag so you won’t get the hassle to hold it while filming travel vlogs. It is also small that’s why it is more handy and easy to carry around anywhere, even for girls who likes to bring only smaller bags can take this with them. Very great as always from GoPro! Perfect 100%” – @APRIL08
