Today is Father’s Day and if you are scrambling to get a gift for your pops, here are some little sparks of inspirations and gift ideas from Thrift for Good.
Order in a lovely dinner
Food is the way to a man’s heart, and that includes Dad’s! If today is going to be spontaneous, we recommend simply spending time at home and ordering in. Krush Brand owns and operates a series of health conscious, mission-oriented brands such as Freedom Pizza, Wildflower Poke, Coco Yogo Vegan Kitchen, Salad Jar and more. Nutritious and delicious, the only thing left to an amazing night with Dad is the movie you both pick, or the board game to choose!

Buy Dad a new wardrobe
Lucky for you if you have an easy-going dad but for the rest of us, their fashion may be just a tiny bit difficult to navigate. So, we made things simpler by breaking it down for you. Here are some of Thrift for Good’s clothing picks for dads according to their personalities.
For the fashionable dads:
Some dads have style and it shows. Handsome or suave is likely to be their middle name.
Collared shirts to match the look:
For the brand conscious dads:
Some dads are high-maintenance. They might not be easy to please but we think these items are worth a shot.
For the cool “I’m-not-like-other-dads” dads:
These are dedicated to the fun ones, the carefree quirky dads that like to stand out.
For the laid-back golf dads:
They are chill, they are casual. The putting green is their scene.
Choose a book for Dad
With the time we spend indoors these days, a good ol’ book will always be appreciated.
We have curated a list of books that may interest your old man (joking, don’t call him that). Let him have a laugh about getting on with age, we recommend Wrinklies, Wit and Wisdom Forever! If comedy is his thing, perhaps You Took the Last Bus Home, a witty collection of hilarious poems about life will crack him up.
If your papa is fascinated about other cultures, an interesting read would be Edible France - A Traveller’s Guide where he can learn and discover the delicacies of France by its regions. Or perhaps a guide book about Italy, Naples, may spur the adventurer in him! Otherwise, with extra time on his hands, why not encourage him to learn a new language? Greek, phrasebooks.
Here are some other interesting books sieved out just for dads in different categories:
Autobiographies/ Memoirs: The Untold Story of Kasturba, Wife of Mahatma Gandhi
Business: For the People of this Planet
Surprise dad with a Candle Making Workshop
On the 3rd of July, Thrift for Good will be running a Candle Making Workshop in partnership with Innara. Grab your dads along for this unique fun-filled activity. Spend some bonding time together while creating your own personalised candles.
This workshop embodies sustainability and you will be using pure soy wax as well as repurposed and upcycled materials. The scents used are also phthalate-free. This environmentally-friendly experience will give you and dad something to smile about for days to come!
Limited spots available so hurry! Sign up here.
P.S. Mom might be jealous. Why not invite her along?
Take Dad on an adventure
For an idea guaranteed to surprise dad and excite him off his feet (literally), take a look at Gulf for Good. Imagine the adventure of a lifetime trekking through Kyrgyzstan or the Everest with your good old pal by your side. It might be physically demanding, yes, but you and pops can train together in the days leading up to it. Gulf for Good offers free, weekly training sessions to prepare the both of you and there is no better way to bond than by achieving such milestones together.
