5 Alternative Irish Easter Gifts18/03/2016
If you’re being hosted by friends or family for dinner this Easter Sunday, be sure not to arrive empty handed. While shopping for children or anyone with a sweet tooth is easy this time of year, you can still look after the non-chocolate lovers out there with this selection of Irish Easter gifts.
Spring is in swing but as Easter has come a bit earlier this year, there’s still a chill in the air. Give the gift of warmth with this Lambswool Throw from Avoca. Woven in Ireland, this grey throw is ideal for the monochrome look in a contemporary home. A range of other colours in small and large sizes are also available.
4.Coffee Lovers Set
If you’re shopping for a coffee lover, there can be some pressure to source some new blends that they might not have experienced yet. Known for its elegant packaging and bustling shop in Galway, Fixx Coffee offers unique blendings of Sumatran, Ethiopian and Brazilian coffee, available in beans or ground form. Why not get your coffee-loving host something special like this espresso set?
3.Hand-Crafted Serving boards
A hand-crafted chopping or serving board offers a custom signature for your host’s kitchen. With no two pieces made identical, each board is crafted from superb quality sustainable Irish wood from trees aged 60-120 years old. All the trees to make Ambrí Boards have fallen naturally. Once they receive this gorgeous gift, they’ll have no excuse not to have a cheese, bread or meat selection ready for your next visit!
There’s nothing like gifting an experience. First there’s the pleasant surprise when the recipient first opens the envelope, then a few weeks down the line when they go for the spa treatment, they’ll have a whole other day to remember. Also if you can worm your way into tagging along to the spa with them, that’s an added bonus.
The Ice House in Ballina, Co. Mayo offers a range of VOYA treatments including the luxurious Half-Day Heaven experience. Guests can choose two of the following treatments: Full body exfoliation, full body massage, facial, manicure, pedicure, scalp massage or a seaweed wrap. Once this is complete, they can enjoy a 3-course lunch from the Spa Lunch Menu served in The Restaurant, or start with lunch and follow it with the treatments.
