Christmas snuck up on me this year. I'd swear that Halloween was only last week. I just can't keep up, and the days keep passing without a card written or a gift list begun. I was all set to buy more boring stuff from the usual shops and then a chance post on Facebook reminded me of all the people I know who sell on-line. And really, it would be a crime to keep them to myself. So here are nine of my favourites:
Very cute personalised hand painted mugs and more.
Gorgeous flowers and the longest lasting helium balloons in Dublin, at this Blanchardstown-based florist.
|€12.00 for the plant, chocolates and gift bag. Instore only.|
Sligo Secrets Calendar
Beautiful calendar featuring images from County Sligo in Ireland, photographs by Magnumlady.
Catherine Drea's first book is a stunning marriage of words and photographs from her native County Waterford.
Gone Rogue Pets
Handcrafted funky fabric pet collars and accessories.
Colourful, whimsical and stylish artworks from Emily Rainsford Ryan.
Joanna's Little Shop
Personalised poetry, paintings and greetings cards.
Castle Kelly Crafts
Cards and crochet from a mother and daughter team. I've ordered the handmade cards in a last minute panic, and they always arrive in time. But orders for crochet items are now closed for this Christmas. Oh well, there's always next year.
Glitter Mama Shop
Gorgeous baby wear and a few treats for mum too!
