There's no denying that times have changed—and the roles of the modern-day dad have changed as well. Years ago, many of us would associate them to be the household breadwinners, mainly providing for the family’s necessities through their 9-5 jobs. But now, dads are doing so much more than that.
Those who used to have desk jobs are now taking on more responsibilities at home all while still providing for their family’s needs. On the other hand, dads who are in the service industry have been working tirelessly not only for their families but also for the hundreds and thousands of people they are serving daily in these challenging times.
And since Father’s Day is just around the corner, wouldn’t it be nice to surprise our super dads with a special gift, thanking them for their hard work?
Home Credit, the country’s leading consumer finance company with nationwide store presence and rapidly growing mobile presence, has got you covered with a list of useful and affordable gift ideas that our working superhero dads would surely love.
For the handy dad who loves to DIY
Why look for Bob the Builder when you have Dad the Builder at home? If your dad's a self-proclaimed DIY king, make sure to get him some affordable hardware tools at stores like ACE Hardware and Handyman to help him with his home improvement projects.
You can buy multiple hardware tools in these stores and even have them financed through Home Credit, as long as it’s pasok sa basket (fits the basket) and pasok sa budget (fits the budget). Make sure that the total price of your purchases has a minimum amount of Php 3,000 and a maximum amount of Php 20,000.
For the dad who’s never out of style
If your dad enjoys dressing up, why not get him brand new clothes? Be his personal stylist for a day and come up with an entire outfit (or two) by shopping at your nearest SM Department Store and Metro Gaisano stores. A classic polo shirt, well-fitted pants, and a pair of dress shoes are usually the top choices for stylish dads.
You don’t have to worry about adding multiple clothing items in your shopping basket, too, as Home Credit also offers financing in these stores.
For the active and fitness buff dad
Health is wealth, indeed – and your dad knows it. Whether he's already in tip-top shape or just trying to live a healthier, more active lifestyle, you might want to surprise him with his very own bicycle paired with a fitness tracker to keep track of his daily physical activities and progress.
You might want to check out the 29" Keysto Xtreme Mountain Bike and Samsung Galaxy Fit, which can be purchased in affordable installments via Home Credit at AllHome and C Cellzone stores, respectively. Both items are also available online via Home Credit Marketplace found at the My Home Credit app.
