Father’s Day is just around the corner this year on Sunday, 16th June 2024, and we get it—you’ve been busy and haven’t had a chance to shop yet (we’ve all been there!). But don’t worry, there’s still time to get some last minute Father’s Day gifts, with ideas from us. Read on!

Dining with Dad

From juicy burgers to hearty steaks and some delicious cheesy pizza, the whole family will enjoy this one! At TGI Fridays Malaysia, fathers can eat for free with the purchase of any main course on both 16th and 17th June. 

If he prefers the best pork ribs in town (you know the fall-off-the-bone-heavenly-tender sort), head on over to Morganfield’s Malaysia on 15th or 16th June to enjoy their signature Sticky Bones Spare Ribs.

For a meal in style, head over to one of the many hotels serving up Father’s Day specials in the Klang Valley, on both 15th and 16th June.

Leading the pack is halal-certified Quan’s Kitchen at Four Points Kuala Lumpur Chinatown, where Dad can enjoy a complimentary meal with one full-paying adult at their weekend buffet spread.

For meat lovers, drop by EQ Kuala Lumpur at Equatorial Plaza and enjoy a special barbecue buffet with unlimited steaks, burgers and sausages. If it’s a hi-tea buffet you’re looking for, head over to One World Hotel in Petaling Jaya for a lavish spread from noon to 4pm.

Connoisseurs of Japanese cuisine would appreciate the Intercontinental Kuala Lumpur’s 5-course dinner at Tatsu Japanese Cuisine while dim sum lovers might enjoy this pork-free option at Eastin Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

For the Dad who Needs Some Pampering 

We hear The Body Shop has some nicely packed Father’s Day gift sets, where you can find everything from facial cleansers to scalp care shampoos and fragrance mists in scents ranging from fresh to musky—perfect for pampering your dear Dad. For more gift ideas, swing by Natura Malaysia‘s outlet in Mid Valley Megamall. They’ve got an array of goodies from anti-aging moisturisers to shaving creams and cleansing gels, guaranteed to make your Dad feel like a million bucks.

Bath & Body Works also has a nice line-up of products to help with the ultimate relaxation experience, with scented candles, foaming hand-wash, car fragrance refills, body lotions, aftershave balms, and more. 

For the Pet-Loving Dad

Does he take the dog for a walk everyday? If there’s a new puppy or kitty in the house, how about surprising their doting owner with some delightful toys for their furkids? From chew toys and plush toys, to rope toys, fetch toys, and catnip toys, Pet Lovers Centre has a vast collection to choose from.

Alternatively, imagine a customised leather or microfibre collar (or even an Apple AirTag collar) from Haiwan, engraved with the pet’s name and their owner’s phone number—a practical and heartfelt gift.

For the DIY Dad

Decathlon’s Combo Cutting Tool

Give your dad the superhero upgrade he deserves for his DIY escapades. A shiny new hammer drill, or perhaps a magnetic screwdriver set, a swanky pocket knife or even some top-notch camping gear (think Decathlon outlets) or HomePro for his outdoor adventures. Head over to any MR D.I.Y outlets or ACE Hardware stores and treat him to the best in power tools!

For the Dad with the Secret Sweet Tooth

Treat the Dad in your life to an ice cream cake extravaganza! How about Inside Scoop’s Mocha Ice Cream Cake? Think milk chocolate ice cream, coffee mousse, and caramelised pecan nuts, all nestled on an almond praline base and draped with almond gourmet glaze. 

Or, from Baskin Robbins, there’s the Tangy Choco Delight and the vibrant Rainbow Tuxedo cake. Plus, score a free photo printing and cake topper set to immortalise your best Dad moments!

Not feeling the ice cream vibe? No problem! Go for the Chocolate Mudslide Cake, an ultimate brownie delight from Eat Cake Today. With coffee-infused brownies, a hazelnut feuilletine base, and rich chocolate shavings, it’s crunchy, gooey, and downright irresistible! Looking for something more classic? Try Elevete Patisserie’s Opera Cake, made up of layers of light almond sponge cake soaked in coffee syrup, with a coffee buttercream and velvety chocolate ganache.

We also love this super cute 4-inch hazelnut cake with earl grey sponge or a tart with hazelnut praline and coffee crunch from That Last Slice & Pastries. The best part? Each order comes with a cute card and special pin!

Does dear Dad like to grill on the barbecue? If he has shown interest in throwing some meat on the grill, why not invest in a portable charcoal barbecue (perfect for bringing to the beach, or for use while camping!) or a more advanced grill from Ikea.

If you think he’s an expert who wants to up his game, look into these bundle promos from BBQ King Malaysia which are offering grilling sets with charcoal briquettes, stainless steel tongs, cleaning brushes, and more.

For the Gamer 

Gaming chairs are a real thing! If the man of the house is into gaming, why not let him enjoy it in comfort? Check out the range of gaming chairs at TTRacing, which even comes in a Marvel or Star Wars collection for die-hard fans. If you have an even bigger budget, consider this black gaming desk and chair from Ikea. Other options can be found in FlexiSpot.

Investing in His Health

While it may not seem thrilling, this gift is likely the best that money can buy. Gleneagles Hospital Kuala Lumpur is having a Father’s Day promotion on their Premium Plus Male and Heart Screening Male packages, while Sunway Medical Centre is having a 25% discount on selected health screening packages until 30th June 2024. Why not invest in your loved one’s health this Father’s Day with these offers, ensuring peace of mind and their well-being?
