A father's love is often understated. It's the little things, like slicing up some juicy fruits for you or going the extra mile to buy multiple bottles of your favourite shampoo just because you once mentioned how much you liked it.

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 16 June 2024. This year, let's think beyond the typical ties and socks and focus on creating moments that will truly pamper and delight.

From indulging in relaxing spa treatments to exploring new hobbies together, there are countless ways to make this Father's Day memorable. So, get ready to shower your dad with love, appreciation, and some well-deserved spoiling.

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. 

#1: Topping up their CPF

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! 

#2: Some tender loving care

Sometimes, our dads neglect themselves in the hustle and bustle. Gift them a massage to loosen the knots and tension in their shoulders—from carrying the weight of being the best father, duh

The Fullerton Spa | Best Luxury Hotel Spa in SingaporeSource: The Fullerton Spa

If your dad is in a manual line of work, he'll definitely appreciate "A SpaTreat for Papa Bear" at The Fullerton Spa. This 90-minute treatment consists of a 60-minute body massage (choose either Deep Muscle Massage or Inner Calm Massage) and a customised anti-stress 30-minute facial using products from ESPA.

Normally priced at S$348, this special treatment is available for fathers at a discounted rate of S$298 on this special day.

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!

#1: Give paint a spin

Want to unleash your creative side? It's time to give art jamming a go, but with a twist (or should we say spin? 👀 🎨) Head down for a day of colourful fun at the Spin Art booths where pendulums and swinging trapezes are your tools of expression. For a funkier vibe, head down to the studio at night to discover the wonder of mesmerising neon paints instead!

Suitable for all ages, you and your dad will go home sharing a unique painting encapsulating this special day's memory.

#2: 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!
