12 AMAZING Irish Christmas Gift Ideas For Everyone In Your Life

We’re now all counting down the days to Christmas! The shops are packed and people are busy buying and wrapping presents in time for the 25th.

Our little emerald isle has so many amazing products and talented companies that there is no excuse not to shop local this Christmas.

A bonus of shopping local is that the shipping and postage usually is less complicated which is exactly what you want this time of year.

With this in mind, we’ve put together a little gift guide to get you started on shopping Irish.

1. Hairy Baby T-Shirts

When we think of Irish branded products, we tend to think of Shamrocks. Kerryman Daragh Murphy, founder and owner of Hairy Baby, set out to change that perception when he set up the online clothing company in 2005.

Now, as well as t-shirts, they’ve moved onto accessories, baby clothes, hoodies and mugs.

Thirteen years later, operating out of Cork, Hairy Baby is still going strong. It’s the perfect gift for someone who enjoys a laugh or maybe a family member who has emigrated and wants a t-shirt that is uniquely Irish.

They have a whole section dedicated to Fr. Ted products. Their most popular t-shirt this year features a picture of Darth Vadar with the lettering: Is Mise D’Athair.
