THIS coming Father’s Day, give dad a present that he will surely love with ideal gift items only from Rustan’s.
On his special day, dad keeps a laid-back style with classic denims and colorful polo shirts paired with canvas sneakers, leather shoes and loafers from Faconnable. Hackett also has their Aston Martin polo shirts, boat shoes and fitted trousers. Topping off every ensemble are a variety of accessories like belts from Nautica and Faconnable, bow ties from Dibi Ties and fedora hats from Hackett. Dads can even spruce it up with Montblanc’s choice pieces with cufflinks, Flyback steel watch and their messenger bag.
Stylish carry-ons are a must during a relaxing weekend vacation so pack his essentials in Bric’s Life Pilot Trolley. Boat shoes are also a great addition to his wardrobe.
Pieces that liven up their home or work space make for great gifts as well. Rustan’s Discovery Shop houses one-of-a-kind display pieces that reflect dad’s different hobbies. For the men that have forever changed our lives, they deserve only the best that their loved ones can give.
Golf your way to Father’s Day at Marriott Manila
THIS June, we share our own fun way to uniquely indulge every great leader of the family—our dads! At Marriott Manila, we ensure that we’re the perfect venue to celebrate his life and love through golf.
Since it’s another event that deserves a grand blow out, food is always the first thing to consider especially for the man who takes time to enjoy family, hobby, and a good meal of course. If thinking where to eat on his special day, it would be great to consider a venue where dad can enjoy a hole-in-one treat from dining, accommodation, plus his love for golf!
Wake up the whole family a little earlier and head to Marriott Café for a taste of our most-talked about Sunday Brunch. Needless to say, there’s just something so endearing about a brunch especially at Marriott Café which has set the bar on the way we brunch—cozy, comforting, and basically has everything to satisfy an ever-fickle taste buds.
Another hands-down way to reward a hard working head of the family is by taking him at the Quan Spa, where he’s in to experience a whole new way to wholeness and wellness.
At Marriott Manila, we offer a simple formula for an occasion that is worth remembering while getting out of the traditional.
Love on crutches
IT may be difficult to have someone dear to us suffer from a lifelong handicap. But John Paul Paulino proves to his family that disability is never a hindrance for love to thrive in his home. John Paul, or JP, contracted polio when he was three. His condition would’ve easily shattered dreams, but he proved many people wrong.
“I didn’t want to be a helpless and dreamless guy, dependent on my crutches, and anchoring my life on self-pity and remorse,” JP said. He persevered in his studies and worked as a draftsman after graduating from college.
Presently, JP is a phone-based prayer counselor at CBN Asia Prayer Center in Makati—shifting from his industrial trade to a God-given calling to uplift downhearted individuals.
“I want to help others by motivating them and sharing to them the hope I found in Jesus Christ despite of my condition.”
When he met Rowena, the love of his life, they didn’t mind the discriminating eyes around them. All that mattered was their love for each other and for God. They tied the knot and are now raising their beloved kids, Javis and Kisha.
“I’m grateful that my wife and my children are very supportive and understanding. They love and accept me for who I am, and they are never ashamed of me,” JP said.
Tips for a great gift on Father’s Day
WHILE gifts certainly aren’t the only way to show you care on Father’s Day, there’s nothing like the sense of personal satisfaction you can gain from giving a thoughtful item to the most important man in your life. Taking one day a year to show your appreciation for Dad is the least you can do. So even if you can’t say the words “I love you” out loud, he’ll know you always care. Here are some tips for a great gift on Father’s Day.
Choosing unique Father’s Day gifts begins with knowing Dad. Take a few minutes to brainstorm Dad’s hobbies, interests, favorite foods, leisure activities, special occasion choices and favorite memories.
Think of Father’s Day gift ideas that reflect time spent with Dad, doing something that Dad likes to do. Tickets to a movie, play, sporting event or hobby show could provide you with a chance to spend more time together.
Help Dad remember a special time. For example, finding a picture of Dad and you together having fun and displaying it in a hand-decorated frame, on a decorated box, mug, t-shirt, pencil cup, key chain or any number of handy containers can be a way of creating a present he’ll always enjoy and can show off.
A personalized gift can be a hit, including monogrammed pens, clothing items, cufflinks, plaques or an appreciative poem that has been decorated and framed.
