This year, there's just as much incentive as ever to support local, with Irish makers and gift shops pulling out all the stops to ensure there are plenty of gifting options for you this festive season. Planning a Kris Kindle with a shop local theme? Or maybe you've pledged to fill this years stockings exclusively with Irish goodies? Here's a list of stunning gift shops across the country with great present options for all ages and interests.
