The Alternative Father’s Day Gift Guide

Stumped on what to get dad this Father’s Day? Ditch the socks, ties and cheesy #1 Dad mug and try these alternative gift ideas instead.

1. Men’s Bottle Cap Opener T-Shirt

From $24.26, Available on, Shipping fees from 7.50 USD.

We all know that dads are the unofficial handymen around the house (as much as they may not like to admit it). They somehow always know how to jumpstart the car, fix a leaky tap and get the TV working just when you think all hope is lost. Dads…what would we do without them?

This Father’s Day, show your number one man some appreciation with this cheeky yet useful T-shirt that doubles up as a bottle opener. It’s ideal for the beach, bar or when he’s watching football and can’t be bothered to get up from the couch. Definitely one-ups a “Best Dad In The World” T-shirt, if you ask us.

2.  Bank Dad ATM T-Shirt

From $30, Available on, Shipping fees from 9.99 USD.

Just as much as dads are the unofficial handymen around the house, they’re also our closest and fastest ATM machine. The Bank of Dad is open 24/7 and almost never runs dry when it comes to his *cough* amazing children.

This Bank Dad T-shirt is the perfect way to thank your favourite ATM dad – it’s comfortable, casual and sure to get a laugh or two. You can also customise it to add your dad’s name below the ATM picture.

3. OTO e-Lux Shiatsu Massage Chair

From $218, Available at OTO stores island-wide, including VivoCity and Nex.

If your dad is always complaining about his aching back, then the OTO e-Lux Shiatsu Massage Chair is the perfect gift for him – this nifty device turns pretty much any chair (even a car seat!) into a massage chair. The innovative massage chair has special rollers to mimic a Shiatsu massage, so it helps to improve circulation and alleviate lower back pain. There is also a heat therapy function available, so dad can up the ante if he’s not getting any relief after a few minutes.

5. Dual Beer Glass

From $48. Available on Etsy, Shipping from $35.

We’ve saved the best for last – a dual beer glass that allows you to mix any two beers for a unique taste. The unique glass has two chambers inside its cylindrical shape that combine into one near the lip, so the beers stay separate until you drink from it. Definitely a unique gift that will make your dad the envy of all his drinking buddies!
