Farmers gives Fathers a day to remember

Everyone knows what Dad wants to do on Father’s Day. A sleep in, brunch with a beer, an afternoon snooze on the couch and a home cooked family dinner.

But the big question is what gift to get him. That’s a no-brainer too when there’s a Farmers nearby.

Farmers has an array of gifts for every type of Dad. For stressed out Dads why not treat him to a back massage using the Home Medics Quad Mini Massager. Battery operated and in an assortment of colours, at just $29.99 this is the gift that keeps on giving.

Most Dads miss the boy’s nights of their single years so remind him of his bachelor days with a Texas Hold Em Poker Set – $29.99. Get his buddies together for a night of poker, partying and high rolling.

Let’s face it, most Dads would be disappointed if they didn’t receive at least one novelty gift. For something that’s useful as well as entertaining get him the Bottle Ball Bottle Opener – in the shape of golf, soccer and cricket balls the opener delivers sports commentary each time you crack open a cold one ($9.99).

Every Dad wants to feel like a super hero. If your dad is deserving of the title, send him a wave of pride with the Superdad tee - $19.99.

Make it easy on yourself - whatever your dad’s desire this Father’s Day, you’ll find it all at Farmers.
