It's citrus season, when some of our favourite varieties are at their best. This 3-in-1 citrus twister by Kikkerland will help you make the most of them. Pare, cut, zest and juice for all your favourite dishes and cocktails with just this one tool. A perfect gift for any chefs or mixologists in your life and there might even be be a cocktail in it for you!

 

 

From the makers of ‘The day the crayons quit’ and ‘The day the crayons came home’ comes the brilliant 'The Crayons’ Christmas', an interactive Christmas story with cards, games, press-out ornaments, a poster and a surprise pop-up. This activity book is the perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon or enjoy some time out from the Christmas madness with kids. It’s not just for children - it’s seriously funny, so it’s a treat for grown-ups too.

 

 

We had our 9th birthday this November. We feel very privileged to have been in business for so long. We were so happy to celebrate our 9 years with you - thanks for coming in and raising a glass. As a little thank you, we gave everyone 15% off on the night and also gave away a €90 voucher to one lucky customer.

 

 

It’s been a wild ride – we opened the day the IMF came to town (everyone thought we were mad) and yet, here we are – still here! We don't do Black Friday here. It's a day designed to get us all revved up about spending money. Most of this money is spent online and not with Irish businesses. We wholeheartedly support Green Friday, which is a campaign supporting local Irish businesses. Did you know that if everyone spent just an extra €20 in their local businesses it would mean an extra €73m for small Irish firms, which in turn would have a huge and positive impact on local jobs, businesses and general good vibes in Ireland. We can help to keep retail sustainable, creative and interesting for everyone. To celebrate Green Friday, we gave 10% off everything if you showed us a receipt from another local business.

 

 

Come in and have a look at our brilliant card selection, designed by some of the best illustrators in the country and we dare you not to feel a little tingle of excitement. Oh, and we do great gifts too.

 

 

How pretty is our Christmas window? As usual Laura and Jo did a fantastic job and the shop is looking pretty snazzy too!

 

 

We have every kind of Christmas card covered including ones that double as decorations. This one from AllJoy Design has a removable robin to hang on the tree or anywhere you need a robin.

 

 

Been to the dentist lately? The pain both to your pocket and your jaw is enough to make you wish you'd taken better care of those gnashers, right? This dental set from Plan Toys featured on The Late Late Toy Show this year is the perfect way to teach little ones about dental care, while having a blast playing at extracting and filling teeth. So much fun you'll almost forget your last visit to the dentist. Almost.

 

 

You can stock up on brilliant cards in-store or hop online and nab a selection and we’ll get them in the post to you asap.
