Best Father's Day Gifts for Dads Who Want Nothing

We all know the struggles of finding the perfect gift for Dad, especially when he insists he wants nothing! Even if your Dad wants/needs nothing, he won't say no to spending quality time together with you. Here are some fun bonding experiences he'll love this Father's Day!


Brew Your Own Craft Beer

If you love happy hour with your Dad, take it one level up and brew craft beer with him! In this craft beer making experience, your Dad will learn all about malts, hops and yeast and how to design and create those flavours he loves. Bonus - you'll also get to take home 1.5 litres of your own yummy brew to enjoy together!


Make Pasta and Enjoy a Rooftop Meal

Take on a new food experience with the family by making your own pasta (perfect for foodie Dads!) and having it cooked by your lovely host. Picture a delectable squid ink tagliatelle in front of you as your fam shares a meal while basking in the scenic views on a beautiful rooftop - we guarantee Dad's going to love this snug and intimate time together.


Build a Bike with Dad!

If your Dad loves cycling, treat him to his very own premium handmade bicycle! Even better, custom-make the bicycle together with him - it's an experience you'll be talking about for ages afterward!

Take your Dad to learn how to make his own premium belt-driven bike from a passionate team of bicycle-makers! Clinking cool bottles of beer while custom-making THE ultimate dream bike together - this is one experience your Dad will never forget.


Hike to Hidden Parts of Mount Faber

This one's for the adventure-loving Dads. Bring yours to venture deep into the jungles of Mount Faber to Keppel Hill Reservoir, and uncover hidden war bunkers along the way. There's a small portion of the hike where he'll have to use his hands to manoeuvre about but otherwise, average fitness levels are more than sufficient to make the best memories together!


Yacht Day Out with the Extended Fam!

If your Dad loves time with his family, and grandkids, he would love a yacht day out! This Father's Day, treat your family and extended family on a 4H yacht trip - kids can enjoy loads of water activities, and adults can enjoy BYOB drinks and BBQ. It's the perfect quality family time!


A Private Home Dining Experience (Not Your Typical Dine-Out!)

Dad's more of a sit-down-dinner type of guy? We've got you - he would absolutely love a private home dining experience!

Enjoy a 7-8 course meal cooked by a passionate home chef, in the privacy of their lovely home. Not only will your family get to enjoy scrumptious dishes from a variety of different cuisines (made by your hospitable hosts), you’ll also feel the warmth of a home away from home. We’re sure your Dad's going to love this fresh and intimate experience!

A Private Home Dining Experience (Not Your Typical Dine-Out!)

Gin Tasting at Singapore's Top Distillery!

If your Dad’s into drinks, this is the perfect activity to do together, without breaking the bank! Here at Tanglin Gin, you’ll get to indulge in a super cool distillery experience, a LOT of yummy gin AND the atmospheric vibes of the Dempsey jungles. If your Dad loves the gin here (he will!), you can even get him a bottle afterward!


Indulge in Matcha Tea Tasting!

Dad's been itching for Japan's borders to fully reopen? Take him to savour that authentic taste of Matcha 🍵 right here in SG first! Here you’ll taste different types of Matcha from various prefectures of Japan, with culinary experts walking you through the art that is Matcha itself. With in-house bakes to have tea time with, this is a super cute activity to try out with your Dad!


Enjoy Coffee Roasting and Brunch!

This is THE ideal activity for any Dad who lives by his 8 a.m. black coffee. Take your Dad to make coffee from scratch where you’ll roast coffee beans over a live fire, grind them and more!

After perfecting your cuppas, you guys can also enjoy a brunch date, sipping on your hard-earned roasted coffee and just spending that much-needed quality time together.


Pick Up Fishing Together

If your Dad’s been wanting to try out fishing, take him to enjoy a fun beginner fishing workshop with the help of knowledgeable guides! You guys can then have a try at it yourselves whilst chatting away at the pier, amidst the panoramic Bedok Jetty 🎣 PS: If your catch is big enough, you can bring it home to fire up for dinner!


Enjoy a Private Rooftop Movie

If your family loves watching movies together, why not rent out a private rooftop for a movie night to remember?

Here, you'll have a beautiful secret rooftop garden all to yourself, where you can enjoy a private movie under the stars 🤩 This comes with 3 cocktails per person, and the host will provide a screen, projector and Apple TV (so you can stream movies from your own Netflix account). Order your Dad's favourite food and just enjoy a really chilled evening together!


Dine with Ex-Triad Members

Is your Dad a history buff? If so, he would enjoy going back in time on this heritage walk led by ex-gang members.

This is Singapore's 1st ever walking tour led by ex-gang members turned good! Uncover the underbelly of Singapore's past dark secrets of gangs, drugs & untold crime. After the walk, you'll get to enjoy a meal with your guide, and get to hear stories in a personal and intimate environment.


Go Kayak Fishing Together!

If your Dad is the outdoorsy type, he would love exploring Singapore with you on a kayak fishing trip!

Here, you will fish along the shores of Sentosa for bottom fishes - parrot fishes and groupers are especially common on this route. If they're lucky you may also catch a glimpse of a hawksbill sea turtle along the way! No experience of either fishing or kayaking is needed, but note that this is paced like a light morning jog.


Make Sweet Makgeolli Together

Bring your usual craft beer-lovin' dad to try out something new - Makgeolli! Here you guys can get your fill on different flavours of homemade Makgeolli and learn to make it yourselves (from a super passionate Korean chef no less!)

Not only will your Dad get to learn how to make his own superfood (or superdrink!), you'll have a really fun time with him experimenting with lots of flavours with their extensive ingredients lab!


Be a Biltong Sommelier

Does your Dad love his meats?! Treat him to a Biltong Sommelier session where he gets to make his own cured meats!
