Irish Christmas Gift Guide 2015

That biting winter chill in the air means the holidays are almost upon us, along with the annual task of finding a special something that’s just right for your nearest and dearest. Despite a seemingly endless array of gifts available, finding something truly unique, and of high quality has become harder than ever. To help, we've compiled a Christmas gift guide with products made by CarveOn and other Irish Craft-Makers. So this Christmas why not give wonderful gifts while helping local businesses.

CarveOn - Personalized Golf Gift Set (€99)


Do you have a golfer in your life? If so, you’ll be only too aware of the almost complete obsession this sport inspires in its devotees. Made from hand finished Tuscan leather, the CarveOn Golf Gift Set is a simple, stylish and timeless set of accessories that instantly conveys the appearance of calm and stylish professionalism. Sadly, it will have absolutely no effect on actual golf skills.

ekotree - Killaloe Snood (€115)


Made from the highest quality Italian spun Lambswool and Merino Wool, this multi-colored scarf will keep your loved one warm in the coldest Irish winter. It's very soft with lovely drape and vibrant colours, the perfect mix of contemporary and quirky.

Chupi - Be Mighty Twig Bar Necklace (€139)


Designed, manufactured and finished in Ireland, Chupi's pieces are influenced by the imperfect natural beauty of feathers, twigs and leaves complemented by the sparkliest of gemstones. A simple piece that whispers a statement, the silver twig necklace is cast from a beautiful twig found on a chestnut tree in West Cork, Ireland, it's available in silver, gold and rose gold and comes beautifully packaged.

CarveOn - Personalized A5 Leather Notebook (€74)


If you are looking to get the perfect gift for somebody who is prone to doodling ideas, taking handwritten notes, sketching out plans or who just loves the process of physically committing their thoughts to paper, then a Premium A5 Leather Notebook is ideal.

CarveOn notebook covers are built to last a lifetime and develop a distinctive aged patina with repeated use. Personalisation comes as standard and the covers are available in four different colours. Constructed from premium 4oz Tuscan vegetable tanned leather, notebook covers are also available in A4 and A6 sizes and come with a refillable notebook.

Jennifer Slattery - Granny's China Table Runner (€96)


For the hostess in your life, the Granny’s China table runner features printed vintage china plates and antique cutlery that once belonged to Jennifer's Grandmother. The design is printed on Linen Union and is fully lined with 100% Cotton and beautifully finished with a top stitch.

Chaim Factor - Carving Knife and Fork Set (€215)


The idea gift for the serious foodie, this Carving Knife and Fork set is hand crafted from a variety of woods including Sycamore, Walnut and Yew. Handles are eloquently designed to fit comfortably into the palm of your hand and finished to an exceptionally high standard with Shellac and bees wax, leaving a smooth and glass-like feel. The knife blades are the finest of Sheffield stainless steel. Items are packaged in a beautifully designed and crafted presentation box lined with Irish linen.

CarveOn - Quick Draw Wallet (€33)


What do you buy the person who has everything that's within your budget? The failsafe answer is getting them something practical, useful and hard wearing. The CarveOn Quickdraw does the simple task of carrying your bank cards and a small amount of cash extremely well. The innovative back panel window allows you to effortlessly access your cards quickly. The Quickdraw is made from the same high quality leather we use in our other products, so it will develop the same gorgeous aged look over time. And of course, personalization is at no added cost.

Ursla Celano - Irish Sheep Childrens Apron (€15)
