TOMS Multi StripeWeave

You can’t go wrong with footwear. You can choose work shoes your dad can rock at the office, fancy footwear for dates with mom or a more casual pair for his leisurely weekends with you. Here are some of our favorites from Dr. Martens and TOMS. Your Dad might like them, too.  Dr. Martens at Fort Bonifacio Strip. TOMS is available at Rustan’s and Nothing But Water.

Forget Lady Gaga and Coldplay for a second. You may not realize it but your dad helped shape your taste in music. The awesomeness of The Beatles? The soothing voice of Johnny Mathis? The timelessness of Toto? These are things we may never have discovered without our dads. Thank your dad for awakening the music lover in you with these killer headphones from Sennheiser and let your Dad enjoy his music even more. Available at Power Mac Center

Snap-happy dads will enjoy these Clap cameras from Superheadz Japan. They are tiny but powerful. Clap cameras allow your dad to take both still photos and videos. The built-in USB makes transferring photos and charging the cam super easy. And the best part? It doubles as a USB storage device so your dad can keep important files accessible anywhere, any time. Clap cameras, P2,300 each. Available in red, blue, green, pink and yellow. Oh Shoot! Toy Camera Shop, Unit GB, 187 Murphy Center, Bonny Serrano Road, Quezon City; or order through order@ohshoot.us.
