At this time of year it's easy to get overwhelmed with Christmas and ALL the different people you need to buy for. So we'd thought we'd put together some little gifts guides to help make it marginally easier!
These are some of our very favourite things...for those special ladies in your life.
These very cool hoops sit beautifully on the ear. In a hoop style they look fierce on with their inner fern spikes and look great with everything from a white t shirt to a black dress. They come from Irish designer Eily O’ Connell and they are cast from solid silver and then coated in thick 18ct gold, then sculpted to create a nice thick curve with inside spikes.
A super special gift.
These Margarita glasses are a delight! With rose tinted glass and golden details - they're perfect for celebrating this festive season! Ideal gift for your mate.
A stylish bright red mug that reads FEMINIST in a pale pink colour with two blue small blue stars around it. This makes a great gift for all your fellow feminist friends... wait ALL your friends and if they're not a feminist, they aren't REALLY a friend now are they?!
We spotted this bag brand in Amsterdam and could not stop thinking about the stunning shapes, soft leather and subtle shades. The brand is called Zand-erover and their focus is on creating eco-friendly leather bags that are strong, waterproof, long lasting and beautiful - the idea is that they will be used and loved for years, instead of just one season - which is an idea I really love.
This Nude Mini Fold bag measures 22 x 18 x 4cm and yes, it's the perfect cross-body 'going out' bag. Subtle, seriously chic and a beautiful gift to receive this Christmas.
This black and white typography print features that favoured Dublin phrase 'Ah Here' on a stark white background. Like much Irish lingo, 'ah here' has many meanings depending on the situation and the speakers inclination. This was designed with a definite 'stop your messin' vibe but is completely open to interpretation.
These humorous and affordable prints poke fun at human nature and the condition of Irish society today. The typographical prints are all designed in house specifically for April and the Bear and are available in both A4 and A3 size. A deadly gift for your favourite Dub.
