Ireland’s largest collection of sustainable Christmas gifts will be featured at Gifted, the Contemporary Craft and Design Fair, which takes place at the RDS from November 30 to December 4.
Gifted is the ultimate destination for anyone interested in design, craft and unique independent brands and will attract an expected 35,000 visitors over five days.
Over €5 million will be spent at the traditional opening to the festive season in Dublin, featuring over 500 designers, makers and artisan food producers.
Gifted will also feature Ireland’s largest collection of sustainable Christmas gifts for both adults and children.
The Sustainable Edit is a collection of sustainably produced beauty products, clothing and gift ideas as well as some incredible vintage clothing.
The Fair also features contemporary Irish jewellery, fashion, accessories, ceramics, interiors, art, photography and children’s gifts.
“At Gifted we celebrate Christmas giving with the country’s largest collection of thoughtful and sustainable gifts for your loved ones,” said organiser Patrick O’Sullivan.
“The Fair is a unique opportunity to interact with the most creative people in Ireland and discover thousands of original products, available only at Gifted.
“Giving a Gifted gift this Christmas means 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 once-off presents from a wide 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.”
Gifted also hosts over 100 artisan food producers and you can meet experts who can help you source the tastiest festive fare.
It will also host a series of free workshops, presented by Irish makers, where visitors can make their own crafts such as mini-terrariums and weave their own Christmas decoration.
There will also be a series of children’s workshops over the weekend where kids can make their own Christmas decorations.
There will be 10% off everything at Gifted on the opening day, Wednesday, November 30.
Gifted, the Contemporary Craft and Design Fair, will take place at Dublin’s RDS from Wednesday, November 30 to Sunday, December 4. Full details and booking can be found at www.giftedfair.ie.
