We’ve made festive shopping a bit easier with our themed gift guides. Whether you prefer to shop online or prefer to do a bit of research first from the comfort of your home, these gift guides will help you find meaningful gifts, all handmade by talented Northern Irish designer-makers.
Luscious pearls, rich rubies, coloured diamonds and aquamarines – we hope you will enjoy admiring not only the raw materials but the skills and design of Northern Irish makers who brought these beautiful materials to life.
The Jewellery Edit
A small box with a big impact! Northern Irish designer-makers have been busy creating new collections – we’ve included a section of stylish gifts under £50 at the bottom for those last minute stocking fillers or Secret Santas!
Share food and good times with loved ones in a unique, warm setting. This is our edit of handcrafted tableware that will give a warm welcome to your guests and brighten up your kitchen!
Make it…a Northern Irish Christmas!
This gift guide will help you send a little bit of ‘home’ to loved ones who are far away. Whilst visits and traveling may be restricted, sending a bit of festive cheer needn’t be!
With the countdown on to Christmas, many of us are starting their festive shopping lists. The High Street Vouchers can now be spent until mid-December and we encourage you to spend these locally – supporting a maker and buying a handmade, meaningful gift is a win-win for everyone!

We’ve put together a few gift ideas from NI craft retailers. With some money in your pocket, you can make a difference to your local craft community – choose to spend local, where it matters most!
