Make it an Irish Christmas…

This year more than ever as small local businesses recover from the pandemic it’s imperative to shop local and support Irish enterprises. Our first port of call for inspiration is always The Irish Design Shop, which has expanded its range of gift boxes this year to suit all tastes, interests and budgets. Another is Mimi + Martha, the mother and daughter-owned online portal which specialises in home decor items from Irish designers including Aoife Slattery, John Hanley and Kaiko Studios.
