This makes Father's Day the perfect occasion to celebrate the amazing father figures in our lives and make them feel extra special. If you did not know when Father’s Day is this year, it’s on 18 June 2023. This year, let's think beyond the typical ties and socks and focus on creating moments that will truly pamper and delight.

What to get for Father’s Day
Looking for ideas on what to get your dad, who has just about everything? Check out our list of unconventional gifts that are sure to warm hearts.
Nothing says ‘I Love You’ quite like the gift of cold hard cash – well, not literally. Topping up your loved ones’ Special Account (or Retirement Account for those whose dads are above 55 years old) is a great way to look out for your dad in the future.
By harnessing the magic of time and the compounding power of interest – and frankly relieving the pressure of retirement planning – your thoughtful top-up guarantees a self-sufficient future for your dad, accompanied by consistent payouts. However, do bear in mind that the extent of cash top-ups or CPF transfers you can make is subject to their current balances and the corresponding amount they are eligible to receive.
You can also transfer your CPF savings after having your own retirement fund set aside. However, this option will not see you qualify for tax relief. Making a cash top-up for your loved ones will also allow you to receive up to S$8,000 of tax relief. A win-win situation if you ask me!
Tender Loving Care
In the hustle and bustle, sometimes our dads neglect themselves. Gift them a massage to loosen the knots and tension in their shoulders – from carrying the weight of being the best father, duh!
Visit Natureland for a relaxing respite. Whether you are there for a 40 minutes foot massage or full body therapy, they have it all. Best of all? Enjoy 20% off all services at Natureland till 30 June 2023.
Do note that this promotion is only available at Changi T3, Clarke Quay and Orchard Rendezvous Hotel outlets. Read our guide to finding the best massage place for your pampering session here.
If a massage is not enough pampering for the ole pops, how about a bespoke grooming session?

What to do for Father’s Day
Doing a shared activity is a great way to create long lasting memories – and what better way to show dad you love them than to spend time with pops!
Kayak Fishing with Fever
Source: Fever Singapore
Get ready for an outdoor adventure like no other, as this fishing experience is specifically designed to maximise fun and excitement. Picture yourself floating peacefully on the sea aboard a cutting-edge Hobie Kayak, creating unforgettable memories with your dad.
Fever, the host of this incredible experience, offers three types of kayak fishing adventures: Sandy Shores, Monsters Inc Night Kayak Fishing, and Playground.
Sandy Shores and Playground kayak fishing are daytime fishing expeditions held at Sentosa and East Coast, respectively. The Sandy Shores experience is a 4 to 6km route where you will fish deep-sea and coastal structures to reel in parrot fishes and Groupers. If you have some fishing experience or none at all, this experience will still be enjoyable.
The Playground route is shorter, at 2 to 4km, making it perfect for first-timers. The shorter route is also less physically demanding than the former.
There's the Monsters Inc. Night kayak Fishing session for the ultimate thrill. As the name suggests, this nighttime fishing adventure allows you to unwind and explore the waters under the starry sky. Keep your eyes peeled for prized catches like Mangrove Jack, Grouper, and even Catfish lurking beneath your kayak.
Moreover, this unique nighttime experience offers a glimpse of the last few remaining floating homes and farms known as kelongs. After an exhilarating fishing session, you'll be rewarded with a mouthwatering meal of the freshest seafood at a charming seaside house on Pulau Ubin, truly a feast to remember.
Price: From S$199 per pax

Golf Simulator Outing
Spending quality time with loved ones is great, but sometimes, the best gift is the gift of space. Whether your father is an avid golf lover or maybe he is game to try out a new sport, schedule your father for a session of indoor golf.
There has been an uptake in golf simulators – and for good reason. In sunny Singapore, playing golf in the heat might not be for everyone. Golf simulators allow you to pick your own tee time and play in the comfort of an air-conditioned room.
At GolfX, get insights into your swings through real-time feedback using Golfzon technology. Self-improvement, even if it’s just in golf, is key, right?
If you want something more than just swinging a club, check out Kulnari Mystery Golf. Transporting you back to 1920s Boat Quay, this is where minigolf meets murder mystery. Investigate a mysterious occurrence at the Kulnari Trading Company at the 9th hole bar, and piece together the clues alongside a refreshing drink. Be sure to book your slot to avoid disappointment!
