Ok before you read on, this isn't a piece stating authoritatively what dad wants for Father's day. Just suggestions to guide you at best. We often hear people say “oh, I don’t even have a clue” or "he has everything and can afford anything, why should I bother?", when the talk of getting a gift for father’s day arises. Firstly, let’s say we align with your thoughts and can relate. But rather than focus too much on getting that perfect gift or just dismissing the thought, more often than not, fathers will appreciate the kind gesture.

Remember Fathers come a distant second when we celebrate parents around here so the thought alone speaks volumes. But this is not to say you just throw caution into the wind and pick up anything simply because it’s convenient for you. Here are a few options we believe will inspire you to get the ideal father's day gift when you shop at Ikeja City Mall for your father, husband, uncle, brother, son… the list goes on. We hope you find this helpful.

If he is young or young at heart, loves denims and does a lot of casual wear, then you should check Levi’s at the Ikeja store and pick a bargain or two. Currently you can get half the price of regular authentic denim wears from pants, jackets and polo tops and make savings at the same time.

Some dads are all about the board room, management meetings and business trips. At TM Lewin, Ennzo, Owen & Gert, you can get suits, cuff-links and  other corporate fashion accessories. Take time to check dad’s current “stock holdings”. You don’t want to end up buying something expensive and it turns out he has the same piece already.


For those looking for less 'serious' gift ideas, Lacoste will be your best bet. There are lots of casual options to choose from. Something daddy can wear on a Sunday evening dinner with mummy, vacation or the golf course. And if daddy is into fitness, all doors lead to Skechers. There you will find trendy and comfortable shoes that will ensure daddy doesn't skip a gym session anytime soon. This gift will be real value for your money.



And if dad is into accessories you can stop by at Maybrands and tour around a plethora of leather wares including wallets, bags, and bracelets. Have a look at dad’s current wallet and you’ll see that those ATM and complimentary cards need a new wallet to call home. You will also find wristwatches from Fossil to Emporio Armani. If dad has too many stainless steel watches for instance, the easiest option is to get him a leather strapped one. Something different usually does the trick.


There's our two cents to the exercise of getting the ideal father's day gift. Of course there are a lot more options at Ikeja City Mall. For example, you may know immediately that what dad needs is a new phone. If that's the case then go for it.

One thing we won't leave out is perfumes. No man born of a woman will refuse such on Father's day (at least so we think). At Montaigne Place & Essenza, you're spoilt for choice. And top brands too from Tom Ford, to Ralph Lauren to list a few.

At the end of the day, it's all about how important dad is and what you can afford. Whatever your budget, you can browse the following stores in ICM for father's day gifts.
