Some of our moms have barely removed the wrapping on their Mother's Day presents and it is now time to think about dad. Father's Day falls on 19 June this year and time is running out to find something for dad. That being said, fret not as the kind people at meREWARDS(aka us) have carefully curated this list of 10 Unique Gift Ideas for 10 Different Dads to make your life easier. That is what we do, tips and tricks to make your life easier.
Also, we never thought we needed some of the products in this list until we saw them too. Check them out.
1. For the Beer-loving Dad

Forget ice cubes in beer. Anyone living in Singapore will know a few ice cubes are no match for the tropical climate here - they disappear faster than our money when we go to JB. Get these freezable beer mugs from Host to keep dad's favourite pints chilled longer. The secret lies in the proprietary gel between the insulated plastic walls of the mug - chill them in the freezer for two hours and they stay chilled for hours even on hot summer days. Say goodbye to watered down drinks! Also say goodbye to warm beer!
Price: $33.09 for 2

2. For the Dad Who Is Always on His Computer

We get it, dads are workaholics. If you find your dad constantly glued to his computer desk typing and clicking away, consider getting him the Logitech Master MX 3S workhorse mouse that will only help to increase his productivity and efficiency - leaving more time for other stuff.
This mouse is no ordinary mouse, with the highlight being its MagSpeed Electromagnetic scroll wheel allowing the user to scroll 1,000 lines in a second. That means he can scroll from the top of your composition homework to the bottom in a mere second (well unless you wrote a thesis, then that is different).
Other highlights include its 8K DPI tracking on any surface, simultaneous connectivity to different workstations, 70 days usage on a full charge and many more.

3. For the Dad Who Likes to Take Your Chou Chou Away

If you have been through the agony of having your chou chou (endearing term for a smelly pillow which most people cannot sleep without) taken away from you too often, we feel you. We know our dads have our well-being at heart but this has to stop.
Get dad to stop by gifting him his very own chou chou, with the words "Super Dad" emblazoned across no less. Who knows he might learn to understand why he should leave other people's chou chou alone - by getting attached to his new chou chou.

4. For the Dad Who Cannot Fall Asleep on Warm Nights

Unless you have been away from Singapore for the past few weeks, you would have experienced the torrid humidity and heat which all of Singapore was so regularly subjected to. Daytime temperatures hitting 35 degrees Celcius was a common occurrence, and showering 12 times a day no longer seemed like a strange thing to do.
If your dad struggles to fall asleep at night when the heat wave hits, wait no more and get him this Ultra Cooling Blanket from IUIGA. This dual function blanket is made of cool fibers on one side to keep temperatures low, and cotton jersey on the other for when the nights get cold. Talk about a perfect blanket!
Bonus tip: Pair the blanket with the Premium Bed Linen Set from Heavenluxe featuring 100% Austrian Tencel™ from Europe. Tencel™ is a material that is softer than silk and more absorbent than cotton. Its superior absorbency helps to wick moisture away from your skin faster, giving the fabric an "airy" feel. Read about our review of Tencel, The Unsung Hero We Never Thought We Needed for Better Sleep.
Price: $99.90 for Queen size, $109.90 for King size

Oh the dreaded dad bod. Help dad get rid of his dad bod with frequent exercising and what better way to do it than start from something as simple as hula hoop spinning at home?
This Hula Waist Trainer from JML Singapore features a gravity sphere that does not fall off as compared to conventional hula hoops. There are also soft rubber massage heads (including magnetic therapy disks) which deeply massages the body as the user spins the hoop. Massage and exercise both at once? Take my money!
