Throughout this year, I’ve teamed up with for Marshes Shopping Centre as part of their Front Row launch. I’m super excited to be teaming up with Marshes for a series of fashion posts sharing my top shopping and style tips for the Christmas season ahead. For today’s post we’re looking at Christmas gifting, in case you need a little help buying for your loved ones this festive season. Keep on reading for your chance to win a €50 Marshes gift card!


When it comes to buying gifts for the men in your life, I always say to avoid over-thinking it. They tend to enjoy much the same gifts as the ladies do! I always opt for cosy jumpers, socks, beanies, a nice pair of trainers, and even a nice candle to enjoy. I also love nice glassware as gifts, and this Newbridge whiskey tumbler set was such good value! See more of my favourites below:

Carraig Donn Newbridge whiskey tumblers set: €15
Flying Tiger Coasters: €3 each
Jack Jones Jumper: €29.99
Jack Jones Socks: €2.95
Jack Jones Beanie: €12.95
Lifestyle Nike AirMax: €140


I always find that gifts for her are typically easier, as I tend to just think about the types of things I would really enjoy! Nice nightwear, beautiful candles, or a nice piece of crystal or glassware are always high on my present list, see some more of my favourites below:

New look candle: €7.99
Penneys robe: €14 & dress €12
Penneys Candle with holder: €7
Carraig Donn Killarney crystal bowl: €24.95 (was €60)


I’ll be honest, I find shopping for the kids the most daunting of them all, so I always recommended enlisting a bit of help from the Mums and Dads if you can. I picked up some items for my lovely nice after getting a few hints from my sister Claire while out shopping, here are some of my picks below:

Claire’s Accessories Beanie Baby teddy: €9.95
New look fleece scrunchy pack: €6.99
Penneys cosy jumper: €14

I definitely recommend checking out some of the incredible high street brands that Marshes Shopping Centre has to offer, there is so much choice under one roof that you’re sure to find the perfect gift for everyone on your shopping list!

My shopping experience felt so safe and comfortable at Marshes. There are so many sanitisation stations and floor markings dotted around the centre that I felt totally at ease browsing my favourite stores in one place.
