Shop Local and Irish Brands For Christmas

Shop for Irish brands this Christmas

Are you looking for last minute gift ideas? I recently wrote about buying practical gifts, shopping local and buying online from Irish websites. But, what about going one step further and buying Irish brands. I think you’d be surprised how much you’ll find. By shopping local, buying Irish brands and locally made products you’ll be supporting Irish family businesses and in turn supporting local jobs.

Look after your skin with Irish brands

When it comes to skincare you’ll be spoilt for choice. For example, Kinvara has a beautiful range of skincare products, Precious Facial Oil being one of their most popular. Kinvara pride themselves on quality and all their packaging is fully recyclable. The Dublin Herbalist range includes hand creams in a variety of scents, they soften, nourish, and hydrate your hands. Closer to home, for me, is Holos Skincare, made in Co. Wexford, whose mission it is to bring vitality to your skin through the creation of skincare that fits easily into your life. Their amazing Good Night Rich Night Cream is created with relaxation and sleep in mind, it hydrates, softens, soothes and relaxes. Laura’s Beauty Rooms also made in Wexford is one of our latest additions with a selection of heavenly scented body scrubs and creams.

Irish products for the foodies

For the foodies we have Irish Brew Niks Tea, whose range of loose-leaf teas includes a premium Traditional Irish Black Tea, sleep infusion Bedtime Kiss, and an Organic Rooibos Hemp Chill Out. Niks Tea is a Multi Award Winning Irish Producer, packing all teas in Ireland using 100% compostable materials. If you love hot chocolate, you’ll love the Great Taste award-winning Nibbed Cacao block. Hand crafted in County Wicklow, it's perfect for making the popular ceremonial hot cacao drink, or for baking, or nibbling. Supernature snack bars with only four ingredients are a perfect healthy treat for all the family. They're plant based, gluten free and dairy free.

Irish Brand Supplements to give you a boost

Another popular gift from Co. Wicklow is the luxury hand-rolled incense sticks from Be Kind Industries, with several scents to choose from. If you prefer essential oils there’s Irish Atlantic Aromatic oils and massage blends to choose from.

Irish branded supplements to keep the family healthy include Healthreach magnesium and collagen. There's Irish Botanica who has a range of herbal products including Milk Thistle to support your liver this Christmas, and Echinacea to protect you during the winter months from cold's and flu. Or there's Macánta Nutrition Ltd, an Irish company based in Galway who produce high quality Irish made nutritional supplements.
Revive Active Starter Kit is the ideal gift pack of super Irish supplements which includes Revive Active, Mastermind and Beauty Complex 7 Day Boxes, designed to work together to help you get the most out of every day.

I think you'll agree that we have some fantastic Irish made products, and I am only managing to mention a few.

Check out your local stores and markets for Irish crafted products. Even a jar of local honey would be a thoughtful gift to give.
