It’s that time of year again and I have to say “I love it…..” Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year and I just embrace all aspects of it. However, for many of us choosing the right gift for our loved ones seems to get more difficult as the years go by.
So, to give you a little helping hand here is our gift guide for 2017 from our favourite stores in Dublin:
Irish Design Shop
These gorgeous felt laser cut place mats are the perfect stocking filler for any design conscious individual and are only €12.50 for 2. They come in grey, teal and orange, but I’d just bite the bullet and go for all 3.
This one is definitely going onto my gift list. Perfect for those cold winter, cosied up in front of the fire. The Ombre Double Blanket is €325, so a bit of an investment but you’ll have it for life.
Ok, so I know its not a homewares gift but I just love these watches from Gold and Grey. This particular watch is €380 and they come in different colours.
These beautiful Lau Vases are so reasonably priced at only €12.95 and come in 2 different colours. I think that these are a fantastic stocking filler.
Absolutely love this one…. the Papua platter is handmade in Portugal and would the perfect centre piece to any dinner party. This one is €55.
The Dream Tree is a fabulous gift for any age, but I think that it such a lovely idea for older children, giving them a project that inspires them. It’s a really good price at only €36
If you have a pottery lover in your family then this one is definitely for you. Arran Street East design and produce all of their own products from their studio in Dublin 7. Here are some of our favourites:
The Jug @ €95
The Succulent Pot and Underplate @ €50
April and the Bear
For the Gin Lovers out there (yes, that includes me), this is an absolutely gorgeous gift. It is a full gin kit including tumblers, stirrers, coasters, berries and notebook, its a steal at only €45.
The Alphabet light boxes are really cool and a great present for anyone. They are €17 each.
For the Dubliner in your life…. we think this one is pretty cool, only €25.
Well I hope that we have given you some ideas and made the task a little easier.
