40 gorgeous Irish gifts to give everyone on your list this Christmas

It’s more important than ever to shop local, so here are some great Irish businesses to buy from this festive season.

You probably already know all the amazing reasons to shop from Irish companies. Whether they’re an established brand or one person working at their kitchen table, supporting them has knock-on benefits for a much wider circle.

But I also think one of the best reasons to shop Irish is that what you buy is almost always better than if you’d picked it up from an international brand. Whether it’s a hand-poured candle, or a jumper with a story behind it, it’s guaranteed to be more interesting than anything mass-produced.

Here are 10 ideas of Irish gifts to buy this Christmas.

Table linen

Christmas is a time for gathering round the table, so some new table linen is a gift that’s likely to get used straight away. Whether you go for napkins or a tablecloth, there’s plenty of gorgeous options.

Ceramics

An Irish-made ceramic piece is something your recipient will use and treasure for many years to come. There are countless incredible makers dotted across the island, but here are just a few that we love.

Candles

Who doesn’t love a candle gently flickering during the dark evenings? There are plenty of Irish-made options that smell as cosy as they look.

Knitwear

Ireland is known for its gorgeous knitwear, so why not make the most of our wonderful heritage and buy a beautiful investment piece? If you don’t fancy a traditional jumper, there’s plenty of modern brands giving Irish knitwear a modern update.

Bags

You might not think of luxurious-looking handbags when you think of Irish gifts, but if you’ve a fashion-lover in your life, they’ll definitely thank you for any of these bags.

Calendars

A lovely way to look forward to the year ahead, and to know that your recipient will have something beautiful hanging on their wall for the next 12 months.

Sleepwear

The perfect example of something you might not buy yourself, but would enjoy it every single day if you were lucky enough to receive it as a gift: a beautiful quality pair of pyjamas. We’re lucky to have plenty of great Irish companies making gorgeous designs. 

Stocking fillers

Shopping local doesn’t have to mean spending a lot, here are some low-budget ideas for a little treat.

Kitchen

For the keen cook, a beautiful Irish-made product to use every day would be a great gift.

Green fingers

If you know a keen plant parent, try one of these horitcultural gifts.
