If you're struggling to think of original presents for everyone on your 'nice' list this christmas, look no further. Not only are these shops independent, they all offer gifts that you won't find anywhere else. 

So, when you drop cash you know you're buying something that'll be remembered. No more pairs of socks or aftershave - give these independent little gems your money for truly great gifts this Christmas. 

1. Article 

We love this interiors haven in The Powerscourt Shopping Centre. You'll find everything from quirky cards and books to gorgeous home accessories and prints here. Plus, they'll wrap it all up beautifully for you, too.

2. The Irish Design Shop 

Not only does this little store on Drury Street have an abundance of unique Irish gifts, they also offer a savage gift service. They'll help you pick out something perfect, wrap it and even include a hand written note if you like. This is a last-minute-shopper's dream. 


3. MADE 

We've spoken loads about this fab little store before, and for good reason. For the fashion and jewellery lover in your life this is a one stop shop of beautiful pieces, whatever you're budget. Get on it.

4. Fresh Cuts 

Another one of our favourites, Fresh Cuts on South William Street has gone from pop-up to permanent. We love their super soft organic tees and hoodies, for a very cosy Christmas present. 


5. April And The Bear

This Irish website is launching its very own festive pop-up shop in Portobello next week. Expect oodles of interior and jewellery pieces to die for. We have our beady little eyes on their coffee print, below.

6. Indigo & Cloth 

One for the lads, I&C in Templebar has the best selection of cool, under-the-radar clothes and accessories in the city. Plus, they serve Clement & Pekoe coffee here too, so your shopping will be rightly fuelled. 


7. Cocoa Atelier 

Seriously, you cannot go wrong with a really amazing box of chocolates form this incredible chocolatier just next to George's Street Arcade. And they do macaroons. NOM. 

It's okay if you just want a box of goodies for yourself...
