mySKIN BAR - Shaving Set

Used up all of Daddy’s shaving cream for slime making? Father’s Day is the perfect opportunity to up his skin and shaving game with mySKINBAR! A shaving set that includes mySKINBAR’s versatile, nature based cleansers that double up as an aftershave and shaving gel and will keep his skin nourished and moisturized. 

The Inception Sling will become his new go-to moisturising foam gel that also serves as a shaving cream. Packed with Vitamin E and a refreshing cucumber scent, the Inception Sling is a universal cleanser, catered for everyone and anyone. Its anti-ageing and hydrating element gently removes excess facial oils, while keeping his face cleansed and rejuvenated!

And to finish up his routine there’s a soothing aftershave! Beyond Control is a hydrating toner packed with probiotics to keep the skin’s immunity strong. We love the dual useability - all he has to do is pat it on or spray it like a mist on his face to stay fresh and moisturised! This formulation is great for oily or combination skin types as it regulates excess sebum production.

Mann-Oh-Mann Eco-friendly Swim Shorts by Artist Sandra Macheroux

Possibly the coolest shorts in town, these eco-friendly swim shorts have been designed by Singapore’s very own artist, Sandra Macheroux. Sandra is known for her talent of capturing Singapore's raw and unique beauty and turning it into stunning art prints, coasters, gifts and keepsakes. 

A wearable form of Sandra’s popular collages, the Mann-Oh-Mann eco-friendly swim shorts make for the perfect Father’s Day gift this year. Created out of recycled plastic bottles these shorts are super comfortable and eye-catching - both a celebration of Singapore and the environment we live in! 

Sandra Macheroux designed these unique pieces by creatively combining her Singapore street photography into fun collages. The artwork was then printed on fabric made of recycled plastic bottles using water-based ink.

You can also get similar ones for both daddy and son! Available in 2 designs for men and 3 for boys, these fun shorts come in a matching drawstring pouch. Sustainable wearable art at an affordable price - what’s not to love!

Sonos Arc

Want to make Father’s Day ex-traaa special? We’d highly recommend investing in the snazziest smart soundbar till date  - the Sonos Arc. With smart, adaptable, cinema-quality sound, support for Dolby Atmos, and multiple voice assistants, Arc sets a new standard for premium home theatre sound. More than just a soundbar, Arc brings brilliant sound to anything you can stream, tuned for what’s playing from the TV  to music, podcasts and radio when the TV is off. 

Tuned in partnership with Oscar-winning mixing engineers, Arc adjusts its sound profile through software, based on the home theatre set-up and what’s playing, whether stereo, Dolby Audio 5.1, or Dolby Atmos.

And if you’re worried that Mum won’t like another bulky electronic item in the house, the Arc comes in matte black and matte white and it will fit in elegantly within any home. Movie nights will never be the same again - for daddy and the kiddos!

Arc will be available starting June 10 for S$1499 at https://trysonos.sg/

Personalised Fun Stuff from Bright Star Kids

What’s Father’s Day without some prerequisite cheeky t-shirts and Daddy coupons? From Stubby Holders to Beer Bottle Labels, including one that says ‘To the World’s Best Fart(h)er’, you're sure to hit gold at this repository of everything personalised! 

For some real ‘aww’ moments we’d suggest getting a Best Dad Activity Booklet that kids will love to work on for their Daddy dearest. This double-sided A5 greeting card includes space inside for your child to write about their Dad and includes a nice large area for them to create a drawing of them. 

Too busy to create your own handmade vouchers? Make things easy with their personalised Voucher Book that can be customised with a special message on the cover. 

Dad will love redeeming all of the gifts inside, including breakfast in bed, a back massage, date night with mum and big bear cuddles with the kids!


Safe and Slim Wallet from Secrid

Is Daddy tired of bending and breaking all his credit cards? Classic style wallets look fab but with regular use and sitting, lead to bending and breakage of cards. That’s why the wallets at Secrid are so cool! Practical and a fashion statement this version is a timeless all-purpose leather with a natural glossy finish that fits every style. Made in Holland and with Italian cowhide, this beauty comes in corrected grain leather and its slim profile fits perfectly into every pocket. The generously cut leather holds at least an additional six cards, banknotes and business cards.
The patented mechanism allows you to slide out your cards with one simple motion, ready for immediate use. And it also keeps your cards safe! Not only does the aluminium protect from bending, but breaking it also ensures against unwanted wireless communication.
