It’s that time of year when parents need to get organised, so my Mam and I spent a day over the weekend in Ilac Shopping Centre, making a really good dent into our Christmas shopping!
We started off in Rocket Menswear and this was our fave outfit! The jeans keep it casual but the jacket & waistcoat, smarten it up. I reckon a waistcoat on a man is like spanx on a woman – it helps keep a nice shape!!
Next stop, Nisbets on Moore St. for some homeware essentials! We picked up a cake mixer (for puddings & cakes!), cocktail shaker, glasses and a 4 slice toaster – very handy at busy breakfast times when family come to visit!!
Then, straight in to The Works for stocking fillers, books & games. Favourite this year is Monopoly Dublin edition!
Then, into Dealz for wrapping paper, shoe box appeal boxes and fillers, jigsaw puzzles, sweets, treats & more!!
Next stop, Creative Ideas in middle of Ilac, which has loads of beautiful gifts. Their homewares are beautiful too!!
We picked up some fabulous gifts in Boots. Their range of make-up, skincare, haircare offers are just superb! Something for everyone in here and make sure to watch our for the Star Gifts, these are brill!!
Now for the little ones – and what could be better than an advent calendar & cute goodies from Smiggle!!
We had a lovely time in Gerard, browsing the gorgeous winter clothes and Christmas outfits. I picked up fab glitzy jumpsuit & my Mam (its her FAVE shop!) picked up petite trousers & beautiful animal print top. #OnTrend
Love candles? The Card Gallery has a great selection of Yankee and there are lots of price points to choose from. Our favourite was this selection, with lots of different scents for only €25! Perfect for someone special!
Of course, Flying Tiger has an amazing range of fun, colourful and affordable decorations and gifts! We love the chuckling Santa!!
If you’ve got Reds Fans in your house, then you need to get yourself into LFC store. Aside from clothing and jerseys, they’ve got fab gifts. Love the hot water bottles, egg cups, water bottles, LFC Elf and lots more…..
Then, finally, we had to pick up a VERY special dress & shoes in Quiz for lucky #mams_ie Mammy Emma who won a trip to the E! Awards in LA!! She was seated 2 tables away from the Kardashians, so we needed a knock out dress and shoes to make her look & feel like a star. And Quiz had the perfect dress & shoes!!!! She looks AMAZING!!!!!
