How are you giving back to your dad this weekend?

Father’s Day is only four days away. Aside from celebrating it with your family at home or at a fancy restaurant, you can also make it extra with a nice, thoughtful present. If you’re still in need of ideas, look no further as we’ve rounded up some gifts that can easily delight your food-loving dad. Whether he's into sweets, booze, or both, there’s something in this list he will absolutely love.

Is he up for something boozy? Say hello to the first Ube Cream Liqueur in the world—“an innovative blend of sugar cane vodka from Negros, blended with full cream and the star of the show, Filipino Ube.” This drink crafted by Destileria Barako is best served chilled, but it can also be consumed neat, on the rocks, layered on shooters, or mixed with halo-halo. 

Speaking of fresh offerings, the world’s first Belgian Tableya has just been introduced by Theo & Brom, which “combines the classic Italian tiramisu and its best-selling Tableya Filipina made of the finest cacao beans.” The Tableyamisu A La Ragazzon has mascarpone cheese and homemade Pistoccus di Fonni (Sardinian version of ladyfingers). Available in Tableyamisu Caffe (P1,499) and Tableyamisu Cioccolato (P1,599), it’s topped with 24k gold shavings that make it a lovely gift for dad. If he loves both coffee and chocolate, you can opt for the twin pack (P2,499) to give him the best of both worlds. 

Dad's in for an exciting surprise with the Aperitif Heart-Shaped Smashbox (P2,950), which is amped up with cookie nibblers dipped in chocolate as well as Kisses, Ferrero, and a Scotch Whisky.

By giving him an orbit mug where he can store his favorite drink, you can remind him of your love and appreciation with the help of Lahja’s personalized offering.

For P320, you can make Father's Day a lot sweeter with Cocoa Monster Manila's Classic Milk & Dark Chocolate Truffles. Each box contains eight pieces of each flavor, all with a decadent ganache filling. 

Does he enjoy bonding with you over tea? Get him this Le Pere gift package by Celestea. Priced at P999, each “Best Dad Ever” box contains a “Best Dad Ever” mug, two white handkerchiefs, a glass tube infuser, 125 ml raw honey, 125 ml oolong tea, and a wooden dipper.
