In Ireland, we really are spoilt for choice when it comes to great whiskey. These rather brilliant rocking whiskey glasses are the perfect gift for anyone who enjoys a tipple from time to time. They come with drink stones which you chill in the freezer and then use to keep your whiskey cold but, crucially, undiluted (they're also great for white wine emergencies!). Chin-chin!
Any new parents out there?
Are you the smushy, loving, rose-buying, chocolate-lavishing type or all just a bit of bah humbug when it comes to Valentine's day? We all have different approaches to Feb 14th. Yes, it’s an enforced Hallmark holiday, but it’s nice to doff your cap to your significant other and celebrate your good fortune in finding a mate at least once in a while and judging by our Valentine’s card sales in the last few days, a lot of you feel the same. A customer was telling us earlier about a friend who has given her partner the same card for the last 20 years. After each Valentine's, she rescues it from the recycling and puts it away for next year and he is none the wiser! We love a good story and to celebrate Valentines we are offering one lucky person a bottle of sparkly and some stonkingly gorgeous crystal champagne flutes by nude glass. Comment on our Instagram post and let us know your very best Valentine's story past or present for a chance to win. The competition closes on Sunday at midnight and the lucky winner will be selected next week.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!!
On the back foot with your beloved because you "thought we weren't celebrating Valentine's this year"? Fear not, we've got loads of gifts to get you out of dodge. These mugs are great - they react to heat, revealing the true strength of your love right before your lover's very eyes. They sold out last week and are now back on our shelves today. Just say you had them on order and all will be forgiven.
It is windy out there! Perfect for curling up with a great book. Get kids in the habit early with books at birthdays and regular trips to the library. We have a lovely edited selection and lots are Irish 💚. Pop in and have a look and remember it's all available online.
