    Every year we try to help you lovely Mammies when it comes to Christmas gift ideas. Whether its for a friend or family member, we have lots of cool gift ideas to tickle your fancy!

    Lets kick it off with – wait for it – Donkey Milk Soap from 12QuailFarm! Who doesn’t love fancy soaps and these ones are weird & wonderful. Donkey Milk is a fabulous exfoliant, is soft and smells lovely too. Quirky and made in Ireland, we think these are very cool. Find out more at

    Next up, we’ve got some gorgeous Bath Salts and candles & body scrubs from Made By Coopers. This is really luxurious. After a run, I love a soak in these. See the full range here My fave is the Vanilla blend!

    If there is someone in your life who likes make-up, Note Cosmetics has a new range of products that are price friendly and vibrant. I am particularly loving the mascara and lip matte. The lip stain lasts really really well and the mascara does great things to lashes!!

    If you or someone you love is into natural products and essential oils, Dublin Herbalists have a beautiful range that we think will make someone very happy for Christmas! We have been trying some of the range this week and its gorgeous.

    For the fellas, these gift boxes scream luxury! From two Irish guys, Hidden Gent is a clever, stylish gift for a husband, Dad, brother, fiancee or basically, any guy who likes to be stylish! Get 10% off with promo code MAMS! Our faves are The Viscount Box and Vega Box. Very cool for the guys! See more here!

    For anyone with Asthma, sinus conditions or someone who just likes to look after their health, Black Salt Lamps from Salt Cave Halotherapy are fantastic. Direct from the black salt caves in Transylvania (yep, we know, very Dracula-esque!) these are brill. Our own daughter has one in her bedroom and it helps her astha alot!

    If you’ve got a teenager, make-up is a great stocking filler (or if you are a Mammy who loves make-up like me, its also a great stocking filler) this range is superb. Cost friendly and colourful! From CND – Creative Nail Design #CND Love CND

    Wet n Wild is another colourful, purse friendly option for stocking fillers. Our 14 yr old and her pals love this range!

    A great gift idea for family members is Plugpics individual stickers that you put on your phone charger so there is no more mixing up chargers! It a great way to cut down on arguments over who owns which charger (which, if you have kids with devices you’ll know all about!!) And these were designed by some very clever teens – we love to support products like this! Order here! 


    Love this brush set from Nima Brush. You can get full sized or travel sized. Very good quality and we love that its an Irish company too! See more here


    For beautiful gifts from a fantastic Irish company, we are very impressed with what Tipperary Crystal has this season. From bath sets, to their new Noir jewellery, to handbags and handbag accessories, they have so much to choose from. Here are some of our top picks!!!! The bear & Pom Pom key chain are only €10! Perfect Secret Santa gift.

    The satchel is great for a guy for his iPad, laptop. And the leather wallets make a wonderful gift for the guys!

                                  Saville Row Brown Men's Satchel                                  

    If you have a family member or friend who enjoys the theatre and the arts, then a voucher for National Concert Hall is a wonderful gift idea. My Mam got a voucher for NCH last year and really loved it. She has been to shows and concerts there, its a beautiful place with wonderful acoustics. (She has already dropped hints for this year!)

    More gifts we love from Tipperary Crystal are their bath and candle sets. I would be thrilled to get this hat box full of lovely goodies on Christmas morning. The bubble bath and body lotion smell amazing. The candle & diffuser set is literally the smell of Christmas. Its fab and the candles are on sale atm for only €13, see here!

    We all need to do our bit to protect the environment and that’s why we love these Eco-Friendly toys from! Plastic free they are well made, colourful, durable and will give hours and hours of fun play. Our top picks are the building blocks, piece together puzzles and games! Check them out here!



    Each year, over 3.5 billion plastic toothbrushes are produced with the majority of these ending up in oceans and landfill. That’s why we love Bambooth – the same great clean as a plastic toothbrush…but with a biodegradable bamboo handle.#mams_ie thumbs up!!!


    With children spending so much time on devices these days, we think a FitBit kids watch is a great gift for a child. It encourages them to get active and has fun features on it, so its not a stressful watch for a child and is about getting them moving and having fun!

    I have a Fitbit and I love it so I think this is a great gift for a child too!

    This beauty box is a fab gift. Gals who love their beauty products, will love this!!!


    A toy that gets kids up and moving is a must at Christmas time. We made the mistake of ordering skates online last Black Friday and they didn’t arrive until 27th Dec!! So, we learned a valuable lesson, buy local & buy Irish to get your hands on the products you want in time for the big day! A fantastic company for skates, skateboards and scooters is Based in Dublin and also, a website where you can buy online.

    We got our daughters skates from there over the summer and I actually got a pair for myself too, very similar to what I had when I was a kid. Its been amazing going skating with my girls! My skates have 4 big wheels and a stopper at the front; exactly like when I was a kid! Very impressed with the quality & the service, so we decided to go back to them for scooters. We ordered them online at (the pink one below is currently half price!)

    How fantastic is this?! A personalised board from Adkot Boards and Mirrors to set out cookies, milk & carrots for Santa and his reindeer. Its so sweet with the kids names on it! We raffled this one off last week and think its fab!

    Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without an Elf on the Shelf!

    It is so much fun coming down each morning to see where our elf ends up. We called our one ‘Jingles’ and our children just love him. He comes with a book all about elves and after Christmas, he can go back into his box until next December.

    We have gotten so much fun from this little guy and we definitely recommend getting one for your children. It encourages imagination, fun and magic and that’s really what Christmas is all about!!
