Your loving dad has worked hard for your family for years, and even if you can already stand on your own as a capable adult, he’s still a constant protective shadow who treats you like a princess. This time, treat him like the king he truly is by indulging him in Father’s Day presents he’ll appreciate as he kicks back and enjoys his senior years.
His favorite food
Get him something you already know he loves. But we know that he’s probably watching his blood sugar, so be sure to share!

An improved viewing experience
So you’ve already managed to get your dad a 72-inch HD TV. Why don’t you take it a notch higher by letting him experience the joy of streaming? Sign up for a platform that offers you a wide array of movies and shows that he’ll enjoy while chilling on his couch.

Yes, you can invest in stocks and give them as a gift to your dad, although it takes a lot of time and planning, since you’ll need to pay transfer fees as well as donor’s tax. Transfer fees change depending on the company you bought your stocks from, while BIR will handle how much tax you’ll need to pay. Aside from the paperwork, stocks make for the perfect gift, and they’re even better than cold cash since there’s always the possibility of growth.
