What is your favourite thing about Christmas?
My favourite thing about Christmas is the few weeks leading up to it . The twinkling lights and busy bustle on Grafton Street, decorating the house and the tree. Oh and of course the festive catch ups, dinners and drinks with friends and family.
Do you have any Christmas Rituals?
It’s my Dad’s birthday on Christmas Day so every year before even looking at a present the whole family begins the day with singing Happy Birthday to him. When we were kids upon Mums orders) this had to be done before going to see what Santy had left us in the sitting room. So as you can imagine the birthday tune was sung at lightning speed!
What are your top tips for Gifting?
Make a plan and get started as early as possible. I always begin with making a shopping list and work my way through one by one. This helps me avoid any panic shopping on Christmas Eve.
What are you hoping to see under the Christmas Tree?
This sounds pretty random but I have my eye on a simple leather card holder purse from Celine. As I’m constantly running around Grafton street with Personal Shopping clients a small bag is a must. This would be super handy to keep things organised on the go.
Do you have your eye on any Chupi pieces?
Yes absolutely, always! I’m dreaming of ‘The Beauty In The Wild: Green Onyx Ring’, it’s so divine and a piece I would treasure for years!
Will you be making any sustainable choices this Christmas?
I’m going to try and buy local as much as possible this year . Not just to support small Irish businesses but also because they come without the added costs of transportation. Many gifts in today’s marketplace come from halfway around the world, and the impact of transportation contributes significantly to greenhouse emissions and global warming.
