Father’s Day Gift Ideas 2015
A chance to let off steam: Bubble Soccer
This, quite frankly, looks awesome! Stick dada in huge inflatable donut and let him run at full speed toward his buddies without the word concussion entering the conversation. This is pure fun. The rules of the game are pretty much as non-existent as you would expect from an activity that involves running around in life-sized hamster balls. To be honest, I’m not quite sure where the football comes into it.
How much? Games are available for $15/pax
Sign dada up: You can book papa on an exciting bubble soccer session for father’s day here: http://www.bubblesoccer.com.sg/2015/05/26/bubble-bump-sg-bubble-soccer-for-super-dads/
A handcrafted personalised terrarium
For the more laid-back and serene man in your life, why not take your cherub along to a special workshop where the littlies can create their very own personalised Terrarium. Not only will this provide your kids with a great afternoon of creativity and learning, it is a gift that is sure to make daddy smile.

Some serious pampering
Blokes need a spot of TLC every now and again too, and what better way to reward papa for a hard year’s graft than an afternoon in one of Singapore’s best male grooming parlours, Truefit and Hill. Book dada in for a traditional hot towel shave, haircut, male mani/pedi or even a massage and leave him to enjoy a much-deserved afternoon of relaxation.
