We've been scouring around to recommend cool, quirky, thoughtful gifts for your loved ones, no matter what your budget!

So lets kick this off with some beautiful jewellery from Chrysalis. This Mother & Daughter bangle set is perfect for a Mum to give to and share with her daughter, or vice versa.

You can order from

We love the Rose Gold version, the colour is soft and suits all skin tones.

Some evenings you just want to cuddle up in PJ's with a hot chocolate and..... and our new hot favourite chocolate treat, is the Hot Chocolate Swirl from Chez Emily Chocolate Boutique.

I cannot even explain how absolutely divine this is..... Its a chunk of proper chocolate on a wooden stick that you simply swirl into hot milk to make a creamy, yummy hot chocolate.

No need for trying to stir out lumps in the cocoa or chocolate powder, with the Chez Emily hot chocolate, you just heat your milk, pour into a mug and gently swirl it in until it melts and you hey presto, you have the most delicious hot chocolate!

And its made in Ireland, Ashbourne, which makes us love it even more!!

Order here and try for yourself, yum! http://chezemily.ie/shop/specialities/p ... -chocolate

And you can check out their full range at their shop in Ashbourne or online here http://chezemily.ie

I have to say, this is a beautiful gift for someone for Christmas etc. and I know I will be buying some of their range as gifts for my childrens stockings, friends, KK's etc.

These guys also have slabs with Mam, Teacher etc on them and at under a fiver, they are perfect mini gifts for friends, teacher or to pop in a stocking. Yummy!

If you've ever struggled to get a baby dressed by putting clothes over their heads, trying to get their arms in and then, trying to close poppers while they squirm and try to get away from you....then, you need to check out the range from Happi Close! http://happiclose.ie

Made in Ireland, these clever clothes have velcro fasteners, so no more struggling with poppers!!

We got some pieces to try out and gave them to a Mum with a new baby and a toddler and she loves them. She is very busy with a new baby and energetic toddler and she reckons this clothing makes getting dressed so much easier. And faster!!!

Lovely idea for gift is a voucher to go out somewhere nice to eat. We love Gourmet Food Parlour . They have restaurants in Swords, Malahide, Santry, Dun Laoighaire and Dawson St in Dublin city centre.

Its a fab spot for lunch, dinner or buying hampers as a gift. We got a hamper as a gift last year and it was fabulous!!!

Alex and Ani is always a popular choice for a gift and now, as well as their fabulous collection of bracelets, there is a range of necklaces and earrings to choose from.

This Love necklace caught our eye...it comes in gold or silver and is on a expandable chain.

Image

The meaning of this piece is as follows:
Love is the greatest virtue of all. It is at the root of all good things. All humans thrive in a loving environment, and whenever love is in the equation, happiness results.

It can be bought from retailers nationwide....including Field's jewellers, Shaws Department stores, Arnotts, Kilkenny stores, Blarney Woolen Mills and independent jewellers nationwide.

The weather is turning colder now and its time to make sure you use really good and nourishing products on your skin. Really loving the range of body butters and travel packs from Berry Be Beauty, they smell amazing and are 100% Irish. They are all made in Co Dublin by the lovely Lorna.

I have to say, I really love the Tangerine in the body butter, it smells Amazing!! This is fab to slather on after a bath or shower, before getting into snuggly PJ's!!

The perfect gift for a gal who likes jewellery (like me! Its all costume but I cannot help being drawn to sparkly jewellery!!)

This storage until for jewellery with a mirror on front is brilliant. I've got all my jewellery in there and the mirror is a great size for touching up make-up or an outfit!
