We’ve saved the best gift guide until last! It’s so important to show support to Irish businesses throughout the year, but especially at Christmas. We think it’s so much better to get something super special from some of the insanely awesome Irish brands out there. Here is a small selection of our favourites…
If you’re looking for something really special Chupi has a stunning collection to suit a lot of different budgets. Our editor Dani has the North Star Necklace and adores it. The Initial Gold Necklaces are so darling and would be a beautiful and special gift for your sister or bestie. Each piece of jewellery is made here in Ireland and is inspired by imperfect natural beauty. There’s free worldwide shipping on all pieces purchased from chupi.com and everything comes in the most beautiful packaging you have ever seen.
Gilly And Rob
If you’re shopping for someone with a wicked sense of humour you need to check out Gilly and Rob. They have a hilarious collection of Christmas cards like Rissoles roasting on an open fire (it’s a Wexford thing!) or a simple Happy Christmas Hun, but they also make sweatshirts and t-shirts that are going to be loved by Game of Thrones fans. You can shop Gilly and Rob‘s full collection on their website, but they are also in some selected shops Nationwide like the The Book Centre.
If you’re shopping for someone who is into their health or hoping to make changes come January íon have a lovely selection of tonics that come beautifully presented. Ion produce small batches of completely natural tonics that helps boost your health, nourishes organs and prevents illnesses from developing. You can purchase Íon directly from their website with free shipping.
My Shinning Armour
My Shining Armour is an online accessories store based in Kilkenny and draws its name from founder Nicki’s ethos to be your own hero. My Shinning Armour is your one-stop-shop for all things glitz. Our top pick is the stunning Velvet Hero Handbag from My Shining Armour’s own bag collection. They also carry Ban.do and Kate Spade. We’ve asked Santa for the much-needed Ban.do “I’m Very Busy” Power Bank because why can no phone hold a battery?!?! Anyway moving on, we also adore their vast selection of earrings and necklaces. We think the Arrow Necklace is the perfect can’t go wrong for anyone gift or a piece from the Helen Moore Faux Fur Collection would surely be loved by every mammy or granny in the nation. Be quick though you must order before the 20th of December to mare sure it arrives before Christmas!
Another of our favourite Irish brands is Dusty Boy. They just have the dreamiest prints and stationary. They also produced a special design for the December Glossy Box! We chose this Wild Precious Life Print for ourselves but we also have our eye on their beautiful notebooks. Dusty Boy have teamed up with Angela Scanlon to make a special Thank You, Thank You print in aid of Focus Ireland. 100% of the profits will go to Focus Ireland. So, if you’re wanting to show your appreciation to someone in your life while also doing something great this is the gift for you. This would also be the perfect treat to yourself!
