Xiaomi 20W wireless charger stand
Give dad not only ease but the enjoyment of charging his phone with Xiaomi’s 20W wireless charger stand. The mount will allow him to juice up his phone either vertically or horizontally while watching a movie or scrolling through social media. It has compatibility with different phone brands and has a four-millimeter sensing distance that will allow him to charge his phone with the case on.
Measuring 4.3 x 3.5 x 3.5 inches, the Xiaomi 20W wireless charger stand won’t take up much space on dad’s bedside and portable enough to be brought to the office. Score it for P990 on the official Mi store on Lazada and Shopee.
Star Wars-inspired phone stands and coffee press
Is dad a Star Wars fan? Get him to geek out on his special day (and beyond) with unique finds from the novelty store The Stockroom. Let him display his allegiance to the Empire with the shop’s resin Darth Vader or stormtrooper mobile stands retailing for P1,400 each.
Boost dad’s powers as an everyday Jedi with cups of espresso from The Stockroom’s R2-D2 coffee press (P2,750). It has a plastic shell printed with R2-D2’s unique pattern, as well as a cover reminiscent of the droid’s dome. Another highlight is the coffee press’ stand made to look exactly like R2-D2’s legs. With a four-cup capacity, your dad can make beverages to last him the whole day.
