Four Sleeps Till Christmas

Do you know where all your presents are?

There’s not many shopping days left until Christmas now, but people are still out shopping. If you’re looking for that last minute, perfect gift then maybe these will help.

Newtownards – Ards Crafts, Craft Retail and Design Centre

Found just next to the bus station in Newtownards, Ards Crafts, Craft Retail and Design Centre has a range of funky, out of the ordinary gifts. The options range from pottery to quirky jewellery from a range of local makers.

Derry – Derry Designer Maker


In the Craft Village in Derry you can find Derry Designer Makers, full of quirky, individualistic pieces created by makers and artists from the area – including Emer Dixon. It’s a great place to pop into for something a bit different when you’re hitting the shopping centres in Derry. While you’re there, you can also grab a coffee from Cafe Del Mondo.derrydesignermaker

Belfast – Titanic Belfast


Finally, if you fancy something that’s a bit more obviously Northern Irish, head to the Titanic Quarter in Belfast. After having a wander around – Belfast Baking Company has just opened their restaurant there if you’re feeling peckish – head into Titanic Belfast and check out their shop. Great for presents for friends and family abroad, or for any local Titanic aficionados.
