With Christmas just around the corner and the desire to shop local and sustainably on everyone's mind we have a wonderful selection of handmade, sustainable gifts for you to choose from for babies, children and teens.

Starting with our adorable selection of stuffed toys; Fiona from Sundew Crafts knits adorable Irish native animals, along with Béirín, An Béar Mór and Bábóg stuffed with freshly washed natural fleeces from a local organic farm as sustainability and the environment are very important to Fiona.  These lovely knitted gifts come in a variety of sizes some small enough to make for cute stocking fillers.

Vicky from Patches sews the cutest Teddy Bears and plush Puppy Dog's in high quality bright and colourful fabrics and we have a lovely collection here in The Leitrim Design House.  A gift that is well and truly made to last.

We love the cúpla focail and what better way to keep our ancient language alive than a gift of an Irish made prints from the wonderful Sinead of Lapa Beag.  Sinead creates the cutest drawings of native animals with a short rhyme as Gaeilge perfect for a baby's room or the playroom.

Reading is so important and what better way to encourage this engaging pastime than the gift of an Irish book, we have a lovely selection of Adam's Cloud books from the original "Before You Sleep" to the seasonal story of "Adams Saves Christmas" a perfect read with little ones on  Christmas Eve just in time for Santa.

For older children and teens we have sun catchers from Catch the Light, perfect to brighten up a bedroom window, notebooks, copies and pencil sets and a selection of earrings from cute studs for the newly pierced ears to funky and bright earrings for older teens.
