Since we’re big supporters of buying Irish and all, it’s only right to shout out some of our favourite Irish-made Christmas gifts.
Here are some wonderful present ideas from Irish creators, artists, and designers.
Husband and wife duo Julie and Owen McLoughlin create gorgeous, colourful prints of Irish landmarks, from the Poolbeg Towers to the Spanish Arch. A unique gift they can keep forever.
This is a bit of a spendy one, but if you’re looking for something special, Moon + Mellow’s organic cotton pyjamas are it. They’re €198 a pair, and everything from the cotton to the packaging is sustainably produced. For a cheaper option, their cotton sleep masks are gorgeous too.

Will they wear it out of the house? Maybe not. Will they think of you as they go to sleep in it every night? Definitely.
A supersoft lambswool scarf and a scented candle, all for €36 – we’d nearly steal this for ourselves.

Very few of us would say no to a good smelly candle. With notes of burnt amber and patchouli, Jane Darcy’s All Is Calm is a cosy night in in a jar. This set comes with a candle, reed diffuser, and room spray. Gorge.
