Christmas Gifts - Take Inspiration from Ireland

Ireland is inspirational when it comes to gift ideas. From culture to craft to food, from beautiful romantic locations to jewelry, the influence of history and the geographic beauty of the country resonate.

If you are looking for Christmas gifts this year, why not take inspiration from Ireland.

Wild or Ancient?
The Wild Atlantic Way has opened up the West of Ireland like never before and the beautiful coastline stretching over 2,500km is there to be discovered. Ireland’s Ancient East is another amazing travel option now in Ireland and it offers up 5,000 years of Ireland’s history encompassing must-see sights like Glendalough, Newgrange and the Rock of Cashel. A gift voucher or even a self-gift to any of these locations is the perfect Christmas option.

Festive Feasts for Foodies
Ireland’s food culture is really coming into its own now. Origin Green is Ireland’s food and sustainability programme and brings the food industry together now with one common goal. Love Irish Food is a group of Irish brands that have come together to tell their stories and to secure the future of Irish food and the food industry. This Christmas, provenance and knowing food sources are a great way to celebrate Ireland and take inspiration directly from the land when choosing gifts.

Culture to Creativity
If you want to give the gift of Irish culture then look no further than the many festivals that are taking place across towns and villages all over the country during 2018. If you want to celebrate your Irishness or give a gift to somebody inspired by Ireland then think about a voucher for one of the upcoming Festivals to match their interests or theater tickets to upcoming events or music or comedy live events.

Irish Jewelry

Sparkle this Christmas
Jewelry is always one of the most special gifts that anyone can receive under the Christmas tree. Whether you are planning on popping the big question or you want to give a gift just to celebrate and cherish the person that you love, Rings from Ireland has a collection of beautiful Irish handcrafted jewelry from Claddagh rings to collections including Celtic Warrior, Eternal Promise, the History of Ireland and more.

Dunguaire Castle

Castles and Lighthouses
From castles to lighthouses, there are locations that no other country can offer when it comes to an original escape. The Irish Landmark Trust has restored noteworthy buildings around the country from gate lodges to historic buildings and they are now available as unique holiday rentals.  Vouchers are available and you will also be contributing to the restoration of important buildings across the north and south of Ireland.

A Love of Literature
Ireland has always been known as the island of the saints and scholars and this Christmas there are many new book releases across fiction and non-fiction from Irish authors and up and coming new contemporary voices. A book from Ireland will be treasured by anybody with a connection to the country and is worth thinking about as a great Christmas gift idea.

Take inspiration from Ireland and give a gift that is sure to be gratefully received!
