Father’s Day is fast approaching, and let us guess: a new wallet? The latest camera? New cufflinks? A tie, maybe? If you think getting a gift for dad is simple, you may be right, and wrong at the same time. We sat down with a few dads and asked them ourselves. If you really want to impress your dad this coming father’s day, here’s how to do it, based on what kind of dad yours is!

THE OUTDOOR DAD

What he’s like: He just can’t stay indoors. If the weather is good, chances are you’ll find him on some hiking trail, or in an oasis off of a beaten path, on a beach, or anywhere far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

What he expects: “I like my portability,” says Gary, 53-year-old outdoor dad, “but an outdoor person like me needs durability, quality, and a way to enjoy the good stuff.”

How to impress him: The Outdoor Dad likes to be free, and has high regard for both nature and nurture. The KEF Motion One earphones are best for on-the-go, but the KEF MUO Metal is musical freedom, a great way to enjoy a view as well as his favourite music. And you can join him on his adventure too.

THE SOCIAL DAD

What he’s like: The kind of person who actually enjoys being out and about, and in the ‘scene’. He loves concerts, parties, and any sort of gathering, and enjoys good company.

What he expects: “What I get every year,” Danny, 50-year-old Social Dad says, “Concert tickets, an expensive dinner, the newest iProduct, they’re great gifts and I enjoy them, but Father’s Day only comes once a year - I’ll take a night in with my family over going out any day!” 

How to impress him: The Social Dad knows the latest trends, and knows how to enjoy and evaluate his interests. You can’t go wrong by getting him a pair of Marcel Wanders LS50 Wireless 'Nocturne' Edition or a pair of MUO bluetooth speakers for stunning stereo sound on-the-go! Bring the concert and parties home to him, and forget the expensive dinner, cook one for him at home! He gets to immerse himself in his favourite music, as well as spend time with you.

Ah, if that doesn’t make him cry, we don’t know what will.

THE GEEKY DAD

What he’s like: He’s always on Engadget.com, and he’s a gold member in all the tech forums you can think of. And mom is always scolding him because he keeps spending money on the weirdest things. You’ll catch him DIY-ing and dissembling his gadgets, and admiring other big boy toys.

What he expects: “Boys never grow up, their toys just get bigger and more expensive,” 55-year-old Ernie says. “All dads give hints, but they actually really want to be involved in the buying process. The experience of acquiring the product, that’s priceless. Unboxing it, setting it up, that’s what you pay for!”

How to impress him: The best gift to give to a geeky dad is to appreciate and share his interest with him. Nothing will make him happier than you going to a KEF Music Gallery for a one-on-one KEF demo session, then purchase the LS50 Wireless , unboxing and setting it up with him at home. Throw in a extra pair of noise-cancelling KEF x Porsche Design Space One Wireless for his commute, catering his indoor and outdoor needs. Like Ernie says, “it’s priceless."

THE CEO DAD

What he’s like: His closet is lined with nothing but tailored suits, cufflinks, and ties. He’s always in demand at work, and always knows how to carry himself. He’s busy, so he needs everything to be worth his while.

What he expects: “My kids seem to think getting me anything branded and businessman-ish does the job,” David, 54, says. “I’m a busy man, so all I really want to do is improve my communication with them. I mean, being a working dad is hard too, you know?"

How to impress him: Easy! Get him a gadget that does it all! What we mean is, one gadget that can do group calls, a gadget that works wirelessly, a gadget that can be used for conference calls, and a gadget that can play his favourite music flawlessly. Oh, yes, it exists. It’s the KEF x Porsche Design Gravity One bluetooth speakers. And they’re super stylish too. For dads who want to bring stereo sound on their travels, a pair of MUO Metal 'dual-connect' stereo bluetooth speakers is the one for him.

THE INTROVERT DAD

What he’s like: He likes to keep to himself, even at home. You know, the type who would rather purchase an iPad with his own line instead of fighting over who gets the remote for TV control at home. He’s private about his interests, only because he feels only he can appreciate them.

What he expects: “I’m not hard to please,” Henry, 54, says. “I like things that are simple, but have a lot to deliver. Good movies, good shows, those are things best enjoyed in my own space."

How to impress him: Let him experience his interests the best way he can by getting him something that can amplify them. The KEF x Porsche Design Motion One earphones the Space One Wireless headphones with its active noise cancelling technology is something he can use at home, or even while commuting, or at work, and he can really immerse himself into his shows and music everywhere. He can enjoy his interests in private, while subtlely showing off your gift to him in public.
