Four out of five fathers are unhappy with Fathers Day presents

The prestigious hamper company is urging punters to forget about socks and ties, replacing them with tasty gifts instead.


“As our contact with clients has shown, socks and neck ties are still the most common gifts for Irish fathers and yet still the most disliked,” says Emer Purcell, founder and director of Irish Provincial Hampers. “Father’s Day presents are a challenge for most of us but with a little imagination there are great ideas out there.”


Irish Provincial Hampers 2007 collection offers a great range of delicious gastronomic solutions to the Father’s day gift dilemma, from wines to liqueurs, chocolates, games and collectables.


“Our hampers include some of the finest gastronomic goodies on the market. We have a ‘Poker Nights’ Hamper which includes a bottle of 12 year old whiskey. Our ’19th Hole’ hamper is aimed at the golf fanatic, while our ‘Friends Over’ hamper has a ‘Night at the Dogs’ board game included for those who like a bit of a gamble and of course we have a selection of hampers with a variety of wines for the wine connoisseur. So there is a hamper out there packed with treats and goodies suitable for every dad. And who deserves a treat more than your dear old dad!”
