Whether he’s a fan of the hit TV series ‘Peaky Blinders’ or he’s all about recreating that traditional heritage Irish look, this classic 8-piece cap with a button on top makes an excellent stocking filler. This Mucros Weavers cap makes the perfect addition to his wardrobe and is available in a number of different styles and colours to complete any look.
Featuring the most famous style in Aran knitting, this sweater is a wardrobe staple and is unisex, too! The sweater features a variety of stitches including honeycomb, basket and diamond stitching, each one carrying its own meaning. This sweater helps to keep in the heat on particularly cold days, made with 100% wool and is available in a number of colours such as oatmeal and green.
Dress him in classic elegance with this Donegal Roll Neck Fisherman Sweater.

On top of being such a stylish outfit finisher, this sweater is steeped in heritage and tradition.
A different, more personal kind of gift, this Sterling Silver Celtic Knot Pendant is quite popular on our site and features oxidised silver for a blackened effect that is both sleek and meaningful. The interweaving of the Celtic Knot represents an enduring love story, paying homage to our Irish ancestry.
Christmas 2023 Gift Guide: For Her
Keep her warm this winter with the help of this beautiful traditional unisex Irish crew neck sweater, featuring traditional patterns like honeycomb and cable Aran stitching. The stitching is not only stunning visually, but it also tells stories of the traditional Irish lifestyle. On either side of the centre panelling, there are rows of Irish cable Aran stitches which resemble the fisherman’s ropes.
She’s going to love this beautifully fitted, parsnip aran cable knit side zip jacket is made from 100% merino wool and features traditional Irish cable stitches with insert pockets. The side zip feature gives this garment a ‘biker jacket’ feel for a slightly edgier look. The wool is soft, breathable and light, yet provides warmth to keep you comfortable. It is also naturally odour-resistant and moisture-wicking.
Light but toasty - this Aran Crafts Chunky Collar Soft Grey Coat has all the aesthetic appeal of the traditional Aran sweater… but it’s a coat! This is a merino wool sweater coat which gives extra warmth for the cold months of winter. This beautiful coat is also available in colours such as black, damson and green.
Elegance and symbolism combined - this stunning sterling silver ring is the perfect way to channel the history of Ireland if she wants to be able to wear her heritage with pride as jewellery. The ring’s intricate design features 12 symbols - each of which represents Ireland’s most historic eras. Available in a range of fits.
This Connemara Marble Tree of Life Necklace is all about simplicity and enchantment. The Celtic Tree of Life symbol represents balance and harmony, and the various stages of life. In fact, the tree of life was seen as a means for the Celts to stay connected to their ancestors and heritage. This necklace carries a lot of meaning and is the perfect accessory to complete almost any look.
