Father's Day Gift Guide 2021
Buying a good gift for Father's Day is often way harder than buying one for Mother's Day simply because traditional father's day gifts tend to be really boring. Dads can be elusive about their hobbies or claim they "don't need anything" which makes it difficult to pinpoint an exciting gift for them.
Here at Synced, we've curated a list of highly useful and really cool gadgets for men that your dad is sure to love. From gift ideas for fitness dads to plant dads to even the workaholic dads, we've got something for everyone.
Casper Memory Foam Pillow
As your Dad grows older, you may hear him complaining about neck pain or uncomfortable sleeps more frequently. This might be due to the type of pillow he uses! Good pillows are hard to come by and one that was great a few years ago might not be suited for him now. The Casper Foam Pillow is the most supportive pillow in Casper's 2021 lineup, designed for the most comfortable sleep.
The Casper Foam Pillow features 3 layers of supportive foam designed for proper alignment throughout the night. The meticulously designed inner layer contours to your head and neck in all sleep positions, while two plush outer layers offer cushioning comfort.
Their patented AirScape™ foam is engineered to prevent overheating, featuring hundreds of perforations that circulate heat out and away. This is on top of the extra breathable jersey knit cover that ensures the coolest sleep which is especially crucial in Singapore's hot weather.
Most supportive pillows tend to be rock hard and extremely stiff, this is where the Casper Foam Pillow strays from the norm. Unlike other foam pillows, the Casper combines low- and high-density foams for a luxurious, squishable feel that lasts night after night. With the Casper Foam Pillow, your dad won't have to find a replacement for a long long time. Talk about a long lasting Father's Day gift!
