Irish-made gifts for fashion lovers

Finding the perfect gift is a ridiculously difficult task to undertake whether it’s your mother, sister, girlfriend or best friend. Cameron O’Neill counts down 10 Irish-made gifts that will make her year


How are you meant to find a present that proves to her how much she means to you when nothing can compare? Well, we’re here to make the process easier. From watches to handbags, we rounded up the best Christmas gifts that she won’t want to return.

1. Aisling Kavanagh headpieces

A headpiece from Irish designer Aisling Kavanagh is something that every woman needs in her life. This statement-making piece will make her feel like a movie star and it looks far more expensive than its price tag.

2. Shauna Fay Clothing

Take the guesswork out of the lady in your life’s dressing process because this is for the one that always has ‘nothing to wear’. A dress from this Northern Irish designer is a must-have.

3. Karen Pleass Textile Art

From Christmas tree decorations to canvases, these cute, sustainable and recycled items are the perfect stocking fillers — plus, they make decorating the Christmas tree even more fun.

4. Chupi Jewellery

Diamonds really are a girl’s best friend with these one-of-a-kind pieces. With layer-able necklaces, earrings and much more, the subtle but stylish Chupi collection is definitely splurge-worthy.

5. Orla Kiely Bags & Accessories

Items from this famed designer’s collection already have Kate Middleton’s seal of approval so there’s no need to worry about this present not being immediately welcomed into your loved one’s hoard of her best go-to items. This eye-catching purse is the perfect addition to any look.

6. Jen Nollaig Custom Wearable Art

Does she need sparkly, colourful, over-the-top shoes in her wardrobe? Of course she does. For that quirky, Carrie Bradshaw wannabe in your life, this designer’s customisable shoes are sure to stop anyone in their tracks and surely brighten up their day.

7. Arthur and Eda Smith ‘Ansley Watches’

A designer watch is the ultimate luxury gift and Ansley watches are the way to go. With their timelessly chic and sophisticated look, you’ll find that she’ll never be late because she’ll never want to stop checking the time.

8. Byrne Family Sweater Shop

What’s better than coming home after a long day at work? Coming home and getting into a comfy pair of slippers. Upgrade her lounging style with these fluffy slippers from the Sweater Shop that will make her never want to leave the house again.

9. Dee Mangan Kinsale Leather Bags

You can never go wrong with a leather handbag and Dee Mangan’s bags really are to die for. With their simplistic design and carefully hand-stitched leather, they let the quality of the bag speak for itself without the need for a loud logo. This is a work bag chic enough to not dread heaving your laptop around in every day.

10. Cathy Kelly Books

Last but not least, a little gift for the bookworm in every household. What better to be doing on Christmas Eve than cosying up in front of the warm fireplace and delving into this book of warming short stories full of love, life and everyday dilemmas while sipping on a mug of hot chocolate smothered in cream and marshmallows.
