Christmas Gift Ideas from Irish Etsy Crafters

Well, it's that time of year again! I've been running around like a headless chicken trying to keep up with orders and prepare stock for markets. I kind of like the mayhem though, sometimes I work better under pressure :)
Some of the things I've been working on myself for Christmas are new fragrances, floating tea lights and new packaging. I've been tweaking my labels, partly for design reasons and also because I needed to try and get more information on the labels. It's still a work in progress so watch this space.
Here are a few of my new items - I'm particularly in love with the little floating candles, they look so pretty on the dinner table. I've been rapidly diminishing my stock because I'm using them at home all the time.

The Oriental Christmas is new for this year, a fabulous blend of GreenTea & Fig, with Siberian Fir, Ylang Ylang, Vanilla and Jasmine. It smells amazing!

Don't forget that all of these are available from Purity Belle on Etsy.

I've also been on the lookout for gift ideas from Irish Etsy Crafters. As you know, I'm a huge fan of the Etsy site - it's a great place to get unusual handcrafted gifts and there's so much Irish talent there, it's really worth checking out. So here's a little selection of my Christmas Etsy list, a mix of gifts and Christmas themed items, hopefully something for everyone and all from Irish shops.

First up, these items really caught my eye, so unusual and there are lots more in the Macushla Shop

I love the quirkiness, they are very different and definitely something I'd like to receive as a gift.

For the man in your life, how about some beard oil? This is available from The DRK Soap Company

Or this beautiful Vintage Leather Case, priced at €81.11 - available from LarkVintage

Lots to choose for kids also, here are a few that stood out for me:

The little felted pencil case is from Puffin Patchwork, the cute cooking set is vintage and from Thrifty Amos. The teddy looks so soft and lovely and comes from AnkasCrochet and last but not least, the Name Artwork is customised by ButtonAndBird.

Next up are the Christmas themed items, from cards to stockings to decorations, these are just a tiny selection of what's available!

Christmas Stocking CraftyBeagleWares Etsy

ProjectSarafan Vintage Christmas Decoration

The cards are from MindfulProductivity, the stocking from CraftyBeagleWares and the vintage decorations are from ProjectSarafan.

My last two items are jewellery and made by lovely ladies I've gotten to know and I can testify to the quality of their products as I've bought some myself and definitely will do again :)

First up, these Christmas earrings are made by Alia of Terramor, great little gift or just to wear at Christmas time.

Next is a pendant by Ellen of TheSpiralGoddess, hand stamped and for any time of year, the star shape just reminded me of Christmas.

      Sorry, deleted original comment because I spotted a typo, the perils of trying to do things on my iphone! I think the little cooking set is gorgeous and perfect for any little aspiring chefs :)
