Gift ideas to warm dad’s heartBy Theresa S. Samaniego
Philippine Daily Inquirer
He is our anchor, our strongest admirer, our staunchest critic, our greatest ally, our unrelenting mentor, our loyal defender. This writer could go on and on describing him using different adjectives and superlatives but at the end of the day he is that man that goes by the name “daddy.”
The role that a father plays to a child—from the time of birth up to the moment the child reaches adulthood—is crucial, critical and not at all easy. Therefore, it is only fitting to give him the accolade, gratitude and tribute that he rightfully deserves.
As we celebrate Father’s Day tomorrow and pay tribute to the most important man in our lives, Inquirer Property provides readers some gift ideas to consider, gifts that are truly fit for the hardworking and ever reliable king.

X-O Rust Paint & Primer In One
A perfect gift for dad as he prepares for the onset of the rains. X-O Rust® Paint & Primer In One is a revolutionary one-coat spray enamel for rust prevention at its finest. And that’s not all, its innovative 360 technology allows super dad to spray at any angle—even upside down—for quick, even coverage. Best of all, you can apply it directly to metal surfaces. Use it indoors or out on metal, wood and even masonry for professional results. (Available at True Value Power Plant Mall)

Just what dad needed to ensure that he makes it to the meeting on time. The cased analog alarm clock available at all Muji stores is compact, handy, and can be easily packed, just like how dad likes his things.
Wall-mounted CD player with radio
It has built-in speakers that are deceptively loud and a power cord that doubles as an on/off switch. This impressive sound gadget is one of Muji’s brilliant products in store. But more than being an entertainment display, the Muji CD player represents design ingenuity as it has received recognitions worldwide. In 2002, it received the German iF Gold award and D&AD Award while in 2005 it was added in the permanent collection of New York’s Museaum of Modern Art (moMA). How’s that for having a functional piece of art for dad’s entertainment in the confines of his own home.
