Gifts for Herself
Jewelry is never a wrong choice, and Irish Celtic Jewels has one of the best selections you’ll find online. You’ll find all items on sale through December 7, but you can save 5% on your order after that date with the code ICJ5.
Boots are a must have fashion item- and boot socks from Avoca will keep her warm, toasty & stylish!
Gifts for Himself
Every good Irish lad needs a kilt. Spoil him with a Utility Kilt from Kiltman.
Or make a gift he’s sure to love- Guinness brownies! This recipe from The Celtic Ranch, accompanied by a bit of the “black stuff” may just be his favorite present!
Gifts for the Ireland Traveler
A jacket from Scottevest is not only attractive, it has load of no-bulky pockets for carrying everything you need! For the ladies,I personally recommend the Molly Jacket, while my husband loves his Fleece 5.0. Note: buy one size larger than you wear for layering.
For active vacations- and to protect your items from the rain- I highly recommend the Lowepro Photo Sport Sling. I love it in orange, but it is also available in black.
A camera tote that is both stylish and functional can be hard to find. I love my Janine King tote with leather flap.
Give the gift of Irish hospitality with a B&B Ireland gift certificate! Available in values of 10, 20 & 50 euros, it’s easy to fit your budget!
