3 Irish-made interiors gift boxes we’d love to receive this Christmas

15th Nov 2020

Want to shop Irish this Christmas but not sure where to begin? Interiors lovers will be smitten with these three Irish-made Christmas gift boxes that you can send right to their door.

Buying presents can be a tricky process, and without the comfort of browsing, it is difficult to know even where to begin. With shops (hopefully) due to reopen in early December, it doesn’t leave you much time to get organised.

Thankfully, some quick-thinking Irish brands have pulled together some interiors favourites that are ready to be popped in the post.


Irish Design Shop Home Comforts

With the care and love the ladies of Irish Design Shop put into everything right down to their perfectly wrapped packages, anything from the Drury street shop is a joy to unwrap and keep forever. This year, they’ve put together a selection of gift boxes, with their favourite interiors items. From housewarming treats to a hug in a mug for those you wish you could squeeze, there’s a great range of options for different values, starting at €50.

Above is the bumper Hoem Comforts delivery, featuring all Irish products like Eoghan Leadbetter’s coffee scoop and Harry’s Nut Butter, to Rosemarie Durr’s espresso cups and Irish Design Shop’s own Áras felt placemats. €150

Max Benjamin Sleep Tight Gift Box

Irish candle company Max Benjamin has teamed up with two other small Irish business, Dusty Boy Designs and White & Green, to create two gorgeous little gift boxes for the festive season.

They worked with White & Green, luxury Irish bed linen brand, on a Sleep Tight gift set, including a charmeuse silk eye mask, a Sleep Tight Natural Pillow Mist and a Shea Butter Hand Cream of your choice. €70

A special Dusty Boy Design wall print comes with their Home Edit gift set, as well as a candle and diffuser in either French Linen Water or Lemon Grass & Ginger. €50

Arran Street East Coffee Lover Gift Set

Frankly, we’d take any of the gorgeous Dublin potter’s gift sets, but there’s something about their Coffee Lover set that seems just right. Featuring their signature hand-thrown cup and pourer in a matching Portland stone, and a pour-over of your choice, it seems like the best place to start your Arran Street East collection.

The set also includes a bag of Upside coffee and coffee filters so you can get your caffeine hit as soon as you unwrap. €120
