Your Gift Fix

RTÉ Guide - - Interiors -

If you don’t fancy hit­ting up the usual sus­pects for presents for your near­est and dear­est, then the Gifted Con­tem­po­rary Craft and De­sign Fair at the RDS in Dublin from De­cem­ber 5 to 9 will of­fer plenty of in­spi­ra­tion. There are tonnes of orig­i­nal and quirky op­tions cour­tesy of the 500 or so de­sign­ers, mak­ers and ar­ti­san food pro­duc­ers who will be ex­hibit­ing. You’ll have a chance to meet these cre­atives face to face and hear their sto­ries: just some of our favourites are The Dublin Puz­zle Com­pany, who cre­ate hand­crafted puz­zles, as well as Guadalupe Cre­ations, who make unique hand­crafted dolls for chil­dren, from a Ziggy Star­dust to Mex­i­can-wrestler bun­nies. An­i­mal lovers this year will find plenty of op­tions for their furry friends and de­sign en­thu­si­asts will en­joy sleek, high-end of­fer­ings from the likes of Alan Mered­ith Stu­dio (Vin­cu­lum shelf, pic­tured left). Food­ies should check out the Christ­mas Food Em­po­rium, and don’t for­get, if you want to pick up a bar­gain, there is 10% off ev­ery­thing on the open­ing day, De­cem­ber 5.
