The countdown to Christmas 2022 is officially on and at The Leitrim Design House we have you covered.

To give you some inspiration, we’ve put together some of our most popular gifts that your husband, brother, father or any of the men if your family would love.


The old reliable, you can never go too far wrong with a new mug! We have a new collection in from Antonio López Castro that hold the perfect amount for a cup of coffee or tea. A contemmporary design with a pop of colour along a solid flat base make it a great stoneware coffee mug to add to any collection.

Does your Dad love to fish? Pick up a cosy scarf to protect him for the season. The design above was inspired by shoals of fish swimming in the ocean with fresh, light and bright colours. McKernans have a great range of scarves to keep him warm during this cold weather. If that doesn't float your boat, how about a catch from Catch the Light. Mia makes beautiful stained glass pieces that look great rain or shine.


Art can often be overlooked since it can be such a personal choice to make but Black Hens Designs contemporary style fit  any space. "Rock n Roll" a seal balances on shores edge. The illustration is float mounted on acrylic glass and casts a lovely soft shadow in the frame. All artwork is titled and signed by the artist.


If he's into skincare why not try Natural Ireland/ The Soap Box, They have a range of shaving balms or soaps. Many of those who shave are moving to using a more traditional safety razor and a natural shaving soap is the perfect accompaniment. Ideal for sensitive skin, their soaps are 100% natural and reduces razor burn, cuts, pain and irritation during shaving. Ideal for sensitive skin.


Journals, for those who are always looking for a handy sized notebook to jot down reminders. Lined or blank, there is something for the planner or artist. Hubert Bookbindery have a range of finely crafted notebooks with soft leather, cork, wood and hard bound 2023 diaries.

Why not pair it up with a handcrafted wooden pen from one of our local makers Roy Humphreys. Sleek in design and a perfect weight, these pens feel great to write with and come presented in their own gift box.

Tinnakeenly have you covered for a bag that's made to last. A good leather bag can last a lifetime and only get better with use. Their messenger bag is very versatile with a sturdy strap and slim in design.
