Over €5 million will be spent at the traditional opening to the festive season in Dublin, featuring over 400 designers, makers and artisan food producers.
Gifted will also feature Ireland’s largest Christmas food fair – the Spectacular Christmas Food Emporium, with over 100 artisan food producers, where you can meet the experts who can help you source all your festive treats
The Fair also features contemporary Irish jewellery brands, sustainable fashion, ceramics, leatherwork, woodwork, prints, knitwear, vintage clothing, and a huge selection of books from Irish authors
“At Gifted we celebrate Christmas giving with the country’s largest collection of thoughtful, handmade and sustainable gifts for your loved ones,” said organiser Patrick O’Sullivan.
“The Fair is a unique opportunity to meet hundreds of makers and artisan food producers and discover thousands of original gift ideas.
“You won’t find a bigger selection of unique, handmade products under one roof anywhere in Ireland.
“If you have someone in your life that you find hard to buy Christmas gifts for then we can almost guarantee that you will find something they’ll love at Gifted.
“Giving a Gifted gift this Christmas means your loved ones will receive a specially created present from an extensive range that can’t be matched anywhere else.
“Our curated offering gives you the opportunity to secure one-off presents from a huge selection of contemporary designers and makers.
“The Fair is a huge boost to the independent creative sector, it is vital to the industry as a whole and it is estimated that it generates enough business to keep many exhibitors busy for at least four months of the year.”
There will be 10% off everything at Gifted on the opening day, Wednesday, December 6.
