If there's one Irish establishment, synonymous with tradition, where you can find everything under one, magical roof for a fabulous Christmas, it's always been Arnotts. At this time of year, Arnotts becomes destination Christmas for enchanting gifts. Whether it's the latest gadget for dad, or a special piece of jewellery for mum, the must-have cookbook for our foodie BFF, or the most stunning selection of decorations with which to dress your tree, Dublin's most beloved department store takes the headache out of Christmas. What's more, wish lists of all shapes and sizes can be fulfilled here, be it simply a stocking filler or a one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
From now until the big day itself, we here at IMAGE are teaming up with the elves at Arnotts to bring you a wealth of handy gift guides, special Christmas treats and much more. This festive season, Arnotts will play host to a series of exciting new brands, allowing you to shop for your nearest and dearest in one fell swoop. Stay tuned for our lust-have goodies, what we'll be asking Santa for and plenty of ideas for those whom Christmas is all about; the kids. We're also thrilled to bring you our first '12 Days of Christmas' series, in which some of Ireland's most well-known faces recall for everyone what Christmas is all about. We'll be the first to bring you news on in-store events, from Santa himself or a night of bonanza night that you cannot miss. There'll be competitions aplenty too; we're nice like that.
So before you go blitzing your credit card around town, sit back, relax, and let us do the hard work for you; Christmas just got all kinds of better with Arnotts.
Notes for your diary!
From now: Santa has arrived'down from the North Pole to meet and greet the kids at Arnotts. This year, the elves at the department store have devised a wonderful queuing system where you no longer have to stand in line for too long. Simply register your interest, head off for a spot of shopping or lunch and when you are five families away from your meeting with Santa, you'll receive a text to your phone. Christmas is nothing if not magical, right?
Hot and bothered with all of that shopping? Dublin's famous ice-cream parlour, Scrumdiddly's, has opened a pop-up shop inside the Henry Street window, sure to keep you cool and collected all Christmas, and a perfect treat for the kids too.
