Looking for a gift that's unique and handmade? Does the thought of trailing around lots of shops leave you cold and unmotivated?

Quirky Gifts for Children
Hoping to keep the children occupied in the school holidays with a new hobby?
The Shea Butter Bath Bomb Making Kit is fab for any creative children out there. It is suitable from 3 years (with supervision...it does look like baking mixture so please no licking the spoons or bowls!) but suitable for older children too as they can be as creative and as skillful as they want to be. Each kit conatins 2 different aromatherapy pre-blended bath bomb kit bases and organic flower petals, so lots to practice with 'how to' support tutorials on this blog. Making bath bombs can be something you can set older children on with if you need a little break or something you can work on as a project together.
If making bath bombs is not for you and you just want to enjoy or gift the finished result then the Limited Edition Snowmen Fizz Bombs are lots of seasonal fun! The Loveheart fizzbombs are available all year round!
Handmade Cotton Baby and Toddler Hats - These gorgeous hats are made by Wendy Louise Designs (who happens to be the designer who makes my funky headscarves) and come in a fab variety of super cute fabrics. They come giftboxed and the new born and small baby sizes are a great present at any time of year.

Gifts for Them
What about those people that pretty much have everything and that are super hard to buy for? I absolutely adore these fab handpainted watercolour cards and paintings by artist Bethany Shannon. Beth is based in Westmeath and doesn't yet realise how talented she is. So now is the time to snap up some amazingly unique art pieces. Here's a little taster and here is the link to her etsy shop Bips Doodles
I hope you enjoyed these gift suggestions for some unique, quirky, locally made Irish gifts! I read a brilliant meme this week that said - "When you buy from a small business an actual person does a little happy dance" I hope whoever wrote that wasn't looking in through my windows because its so true! It does make a big difference to all the local, small designer makers when you shop with them.
