Gifts for the men in our lives on special occasions, even when it’s not Father’s Day

·6-min read

Let’s face it. We do not give enough attention to the men in our lives, especially our fathers in comparison to our mothers. While Yahoo Shopping does not endorse a once-a-year grand gesture towards our father (seeing that Father's Day is this Sunday), we do encourage small, medium-sized and grand gestures peppered throughout the year.

In this article, we aim to inspire you to gift the men in your life – be it your spouse, brother, BFF, uncle, godfather or dad – for the big and small occasions, birthdays and anniversaries throughout the year. There's something to show your appreciation for men with differing interests.

Our editorial team is dedicated to finding and telling you more about the products and deals we love. If you love them too and decide to purchase through the links below, we may receive a commission. Prices were correct at the time of publication.

Bonding through food and a staycay

They say food is the way to a man’s stomach. Not so savvy with whipping up a dish or two? Why not leave it to the professionals?

A change of scene now and then is a great way to chillax. So book a staycay at the Capella Singapore and truly relax for a couple of nights. And while you are there, why not treat him to a glorious Italian meal at the newly opened Fiamma at Capella Singapore? Click the link below for more staycay ideas!

Dad was probably the one who introduced you to the wonderful world of coffee. But the run-of-the-mill kopi at coffee shops just don't cut it these days. Instead, look to the Nespresso Vertuo Next which uses the Centrifusion technology to brew the perfect cuppa at precise measurements – absolutely no barista skills required. Just leave it to the smart coffee machine to do the hard work. Already have a Nespresso machine at home? Top up his capsule stash so he will never run out of supplies for a decent brew!

I woke up like this

You know how some men frown on a grooming regimen and relegate it to the realm of women? If your spouse (like mine!) is the kind who insists on 'I woke up like this' with nary a concern about their increasing pigmentation and wrinkles, look to these easy-to-use, one-step (skincare) wonders below.

  • Start him on Meeth, a no-fuss Japanese brand using the waters from Hokkaido. The Basics Routine Set or the Meeth foaming facial cleanser are excellent products to start him off on a skincare routine. Otherwise, the calming Calendula range from Kiehl’s is suitable for those with sensitive skin. If your man is suffering from the occasional bout of adult acne, look to Dermalogica’s Clear Start. Effective with all the right ingredients like salicylic acid and tea tree oil to calm and soothe problem skin, he will find much relief with Dermalogica skincare products. However, if he’s adamant about an all-in-one product, there’s always the new and improved Cetaphil (first reformulation in 75 years) that can be used for both the face and the body! Or, get Cetaphil products from Lazada and Shopee.

And while he's at it, gently introduce the oh-so-easy to-use one-minute night care routine with the revolutionary Saborino Good Night Sheet Mask. Simply apply a sheet mask to clean and dry face for just one minute before bedtime, remove the mask, pat the remaining serum onto the face, and it's done! This product is a lotion, emulsion, serum, cream and mask all at once. So simple!

If there’s one skincare he needs to take note of, it has to be sunscreen. At Yahoo Shopping, we have waxed lyrical about the wonders of Shiseido D Program and Anessa sunscreen. However, if he’s one to perspire easily and hates to feel anything on his skin, look to Supergoop! sunscreen. It melts on the skin and provides a gentle velvety layer of protection on his face; it's almost like applying nothing. The new Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen offers an SPF40 PA+++ broad spectrum protection and is water and sweat resistant for up to 40 minutes! It's a godsend, especially for sports enthusiasts and drivers exposed to the harsh sun's rays.

Sartorial threats (err, threads)

Some men need a little nudging when it comes to the wardrobe department. Look to Zalora Men, which is chockful of sartorial threads that are sure to get a nod from him. Is your man the sort who wears everything until its final days? Then a pair of trusty Levi’s that lasts forever (well, almost) will do the trick! A classic pair of Levi’s jeans is sure to see loads of wear and a high ROI. There’s also H&M to provide him with staples to see him through all occasions. A leather gift is always a good idea. Consider a well-crafted one from Strathberry using top-quality Spanish leather. At the same time, enjoy free personalisation for a limited period.
