We asked our Enterprise Nation members to tell us about the Irish gifts they were offering this Christmas, and they did.
So much so that we decided to split our Irish gift guide into three parts. We published part 1 earlier this week, and now here's part 2, with plenty more wonderful gift ideas to choose from.
If you're looking for the gift of natural, refillable skincare for sensitive skin, this Co. Mayo business is where you should start.
The No.42 facial oil is high in antioxidants and soothes, repairs and protects. There is a sample pack available of minis too. Find natural Irish skincare at herbalearth.ie.
This cleverly named company produces identity bracelets that help give your loved ones the gift of assurance. It operates a 24/7 emergency telephone helpline, and with its discreet but recognisable solution provides the perfect gift for someone with memory issues such as Alzheimer's.
