Christmas Gift Ideas

Gifts! Buy local this year!

If shopping queues in big stores stress you out then head to a festive fair or local craft outlet.

Across Northern Ireland you will find nuggets of stunning local craft,   uniquely handcrafted by local designers. There are fine examples of contemporary craft – from textiles, ceramics and  jewellery, to ironwork and woodwork.

Commission a Unique Individual Piece

Most craftspeople will work to commission and depending on the kind of piece you are looking for, many designers will be able to make pieces in time for Christmas if you get your order in soon!. To find out more about commissioning original craft pieces from Northern Ireland, visit

Experience Craft don't just buy it!

The gift of an experience can be even better than buying a fabulous handmade piece - many venues sell gift vouchers for classes and workshops through out the year. Craft NI have compiled a craft map of craft studios and outlets who welcome visitors with many offering gift vouchers.
