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.

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...
