22 days until Christmas. For me, that means about 20 days of shopping for myself and 2 panicked days getting creative on the cheap – baking cookies, knitting mittens, and painting (abstract) pet portraits. I never shop ahead. Not just because I'm not that organized, but because I enjoy December and all the naughty or nice list decisions (over hot chocolate) it brings. Thanks to an early Bourne-like brainwashing to "Buy Irish," I can't but use this season to introduce non-Irish friends to favorite Irish brands and goodies and to give expat Irish friends and family a little bit of home. I thought I'd share a few of my faves here for the month of December (though, I may have to spike the hot chocolate to make it all the way!)
Brand new Irish homewares and gifts company, Sealed With Irish Love, offers a lovely blend of Irish nostalgia and fresh, modern design. The product range includes notebooks, card sets, mugs, tea towels, and coasters — all decorated with quintessentially "Irish" images like the windswept hawthorn tree, old Irish bicycle, bird feathers, and a village water pump, and all right at home in today's young Irish kitchen.
