There’s nothing quite like the relationship between a son and father. Between the rugby banter, trying to out-eat one another, and finding out who’s the better braai-master competition, the bond between the men of the house is something quite special and amazing.
Well, fellas, Father’s Day is coming this weekend and if you’re wondering what to get to treat yo’ poppa, MenStuff has highlighted some awesome items that should do the trick.
JBL Flip 4
Price: from R1,299
Music-loving dads will get a kick out of cracking out some Rolling Stones or Queen on JBL’s Flip 4 Bluetooth speaker. This waterproof speaker delivers surprisingly powerful stereo sound for up to 12 hours. It features a noise and echo cancelling speakerphone and JBL Connect+ technology to sync to other JBL devices.
Protection and simplicity
Price: R699 each
Is your dad a minimalist? Knowing dads, he probably is. So simplify his wallet-carrying life with Mujjo’s full-grain leather crafted iPhone pouch, featuring solid protection for his smartphone and cards. The case interiors are lined with the finest Japanese microfibre, a slim, super-strong fabric that is also exceptionally lightweight and perfect for ensuring a device’s screen stays scratch-free.
The Swiss Army Knife for facial hair
If your dad is one of those guys who likes to do things himself (don’t worry, we get it), then having the ability to trim his own hair should be right up on his priority list. Thanks to Philips, having a professional-quality cut right in the comfort of your own home is possible with the Home 3000 series hair-clipper. The Home 3000 model features a lacquered high-gloss finish and 2.4m cord, and 4 different click-on combs. Most impressively, though, is the enhanced durability that Phillips promises, specifically related to the motor which they suggest will run four times longer than its predecessor, despite still having a 2-year guarantee.
Alpecin caffeine hair shampoo
Price: from R96
Speaking of hair, why not give your pops the follicle boost he may need. We always hear of these ‘caffeine shampoos’, but do they really work? Well, yeah. The truth is that most shampoos dry out your locks and remove all the natural oils from your hair – but what you really need is something that spurs growth and strengthens your hair. Alpecin’s caffeine shampoo definitely has a denser ‘feel’ to it, and doesn’t contain any softeners (eg. silicone), which also helps to improve the hair structure after just a few washes. Your hair won’t feel brittle and dry after a wash with their C1 shampoo.
Toys for the boys
Price: from R8,489
If your dad is a lover of flying things, remote control toys, and photography, then it’s definitely time he steps into the world of drones, and the best place to start is with the compact yet technically-impressive DJI Spark. Words don’t really capture how incredible this little quadcopter is, so we’ll let the video below do the talking:
