Irish-made goods to treat yourself to this new year

From hampers packed with Irish treats to the chance to completely unwind, these are perfect if you’re looking to treat yourself. Plus, they're all 20 per cent off. Simply enter code Sale20 on checkout.

We all want to give our loved ones something they’ll adore this Christmas, but it can be so hard to know what the right gift is. If you’re looking for something a little more considered than a few bits grabbed on a mad dash around town, then going for Irish-made is always a good idea. 

Whatever you choose will have been made with care by someone not too far away, so you’re guaranteed the highest quality, as well as knowing you’re supporting local makers and choosing a more sustainable option. 

The CLIFF Home collection has so many gorgeous Irish gift ideas to choose from, whether you’d like to give a hamper of delicious local food, something beautiful for the home, or a memorable experience. Here are some of our favourite picks from their range, not forgetting that they also have a selection of vouchers if you’d prefer to let your recipient choose. 

For foodies

Aimsir farm experience

Including a two-hour tour of the Aimsir kitchen gardens and farm at Cliff at Lyons, this is an incredible chance to learn more about the renowned two Michelin star restaurant, and how they make use of Irish ingredients.

The tour is led by head gardeners Tom Downes and Stina Hjalmarsson, former chefs who now lead Aimsir’s vision of using only Irish produce. Sample some fresh produce with a pit-stop in the potting shed for a fresh tea or juice distilled from the day’s crop, before relaxing in the Aimsir lounge with a charcuterie board created by chef Jordan Bailey.

The gift box also contains a Ballyshane chopping board made from beech in Co Carlow, and a wooden handled cheese knife.
