Dublin Christmas Gift Guide

Christmas is just around the corner and this year more than ever it is important to shop local when buying your Christmas gifts for friends and family. Buying locally-made produce from independent retailers makes a huge difference to the Irish economy and the lives of the owners and staff of the businesses,  keeping our favourite small shops open and local people in employment. Lucky for you, Dublin has a huge independent and local shopping scene, and each business offers a personal touch you won’t find with bigger brands. PREMIER SUITES Sandyford are championing keeping your shopping green this Christmas and here are just some of our favourite local shops.

Toy Shop 

Did you know that Santa shops in Stillorgan? Nimble Fingers is one of Dublin’s favourite toy stores and is just 5 minutes’ drive from our serviced apartments in Sandyford. They sell a huge range of quality children’s toys, scooters, books, board games and so much more, all with a personal touch. Staff are friendly and always happy to recommend toys in a certain age range or show you the very latest trends. They have a great selection of long-lasting, traditional wooden toys that are ideal as a treasured Christmas gift. You can also shop online!

Irish owned Bookshop 

There is no gift that compares to a book that can take its reader into the furthest reaches of their imagination. This year, if you can, stay away from big multinationals and websites. Instead buy your books, gifts and stationery in Bookstation, Ireland’s best value chain of book & stationery shops. The chain is 100% Irish owned and have a huge range of books from bargains to bestsellers at great prices. Their website offers the same great range & value and you won’t have to brave the cold!

An Alternative Gift

Wellness is a billion-euro industry with everyone jumping on the wagon, taking care of themselves better, both inside and out. Irish Winters are harsh on our skin and bodies, that’s why skincare and wellness gifts are always a popular choice for Christmas. This year, treat your loved one to a gift that will help them thrive through the colder months from The Heath Store in Dundrum. They sell a range of supplements and home care items as well as some perfect essential oils, natural skincare products and other perfect gift ideas for your loved one. The staff are knowledgeable & friendly and always happy to recommend something suitable.

Christmas Treats 

Nothing says Christmas quite like a hamper full of luxurious, sumptuous Christmas foods, most of which we save until after the 25th. This year, treat yourself or someone you love to a food hamper they won’t forget from the amazing Donnybrook Fair. They have a huge range of hampers with prices from €90 up to almost €400, all packed with the most delicious sweets, cheeses, savouries, wines and so much more. If you like, you can also get your hamper delivered to your home or as a surprise to your loved ones. If you’re lucky, they might even share!

Authentic Irish Jewellery

If you’re planning a very special Christmas for the person you love, there is only one place to go in Dublin. Rocks Jewellers has been trading as a family run business since 1972 and have a wealth of knowledge behind them. The store is packed with the most precious jewellery from watches to earrings and they specialise in beautiful engagement and wedding rings. They have a great selection of the biggest jewellery brands and bespoke pieces, made to your taste. A gift from Rocks will make 2020 a very merry Christmas all round.

Your Festive Outfit 

Clothes are always a welcome gift at Christmas, especially warm, comfortable and fashionable ones! This year, treat your loved one to something extra special from Pamela Scott clothing shop in Stillorgan Village Shopping Centre. It is an Irish owned, family-run company and the staff are always on hand with recommendations and style advice. As well as stylish clothing, they also carry a wide variety of bags, jewellery and other accessories and many unusual brands.

Designer Discounts 

If you love designer bags, shoes and accessories, but don’t love the designer price tag, Siopaella is a great place to bag a bargain. An Irish company that specialises in pre-loved luxury brands, Siopaella is a great one-stop shop for Christmas gifts for the whole family. You can get the lady in your life a fabulous handbag, a designer leather belt for himself, some luxury branded sunglasses for your sibling and a gorgeous purse/wallet for your Kris Kindle. They have multiple shops across Dublin or you can shop online or on their app. 

Gift Vouchers 

Many of us have missed out on a lot this year. Some of us missed out on dream holidays or big birthdays while others are missing their loved ones. We think the best way to make up for lost time is to create new memories. That’s why the perfect Christmas gift for you this year is a PREM Hospitality gift card, to be used in any of our 30+ properties across Ireland, UK, Netherlands and Belgium. You can surprise a loved one from wherever you are in the world with the gift of choice, giving them the freedom to choose where they go, when they want and to spend their voucher on any of our services from weekend breaks to delicious meals. 

If you’d like to book your festive stay in PREMIER SUITES Sandyford or buy a PREM Hospitality gift card, you can contact our friendly team, or visit our official website today. Wishing all of our customers, guests, clients and friends a very happy and safe Christmas.
