Why Irish gifts make perfect Christmas presents

Irish gifts have a whole lot of love behind them – they’re lovingly crafted, full of symbols of love and cherished by lovers of Ireland both at home and abroad.

Knitwear is the key to a cosy Christmas

‘Tis the season to be cosy and Irish knitwear makes a wonderful Christmas gift. From hats, scarves and gloves to sweaters and wraps, you’re sure to find the perfect piece for everyone in the family.

Aran Sweaters

The beauty of Aran knitwear is that it’s made from breathable yarn. Designed to keep you warm in winter but cool in the summer, it can be worn all year round. There’s also the added charm of buying an authentically Irish product that’s lovingly crafted and steeped in heritage.

Did you know that every stitch tells a story?

From wishing the wearer health and prosperity to expressing your love, there’s a special message woven into each piece so you know you’ll be choosing a gift with a lot of thought behind it.

Top gifting tips from our experts

At Carrolls our gifts have been putting smiles on the faces of happy recipients for over 40 years so we know a thing or two about how to choose the perfect gift.

Make it personal – It’s the thought that counts

When it comes to gifting, it’s the thought that counts. Whatever the gift, the trick is to personalise it to the person you’re buying it for. This shows that you know them well and have put a lot of thought into the gift you’ve chosen for them.

Choose a gift that reflects their tastes or interests

If you’re buying a hamper, consider what their favourite foods and drinks are – a chocolate-themed hamper for people with a sweet tooth or a Guinness hamper for fans of the black stuff. If you’re buying knitwear, choose classic styles for Mum or Dad and novelty sweaters for the brothers and sisters.

Add a special message

Engraving is a wonderful way to elevate a gift so consider how you can add a special message to create a gift they will really treasure. Watch out for this personalization option with some of our glassware and jewellery.

Guinness Glass

Turn the perfect pint into a perfect gift by personalising it with a name or message.
