No matter what age you are at Christmas, the trusty Christmas stocking is bound to be hanging over your fireplace or neatly lined up on the wall waiting to be filled with gifts. Thankfully Dublin city has got everything. From a chocolate Santa to a mini book or puzzle that is just the right size to fit in your Christmas stocking. Below are just some bits you might find helpful to fill that stocking to the brim!
Sweets for my sweet:
Who doesn’t like getting chocolate or sugar coated deliciousness in their stocking. Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe in the Ilac Centre has an abundance of sweets that can be made to measure. Or the trusty selection box comes in all shapes and sizes. They are available to buy in most, if not all, convenience stores.
Cineworld’s Perfect Gift Box:
Here something you may not have thought of! Give the gift of a night out at the cinema with two tickets to any 2D or 3D film as well as a regular popcorn combo sharer for two. It also comes in a lovely presentation box with two merryteaser chocolates!
Give the gift of food, glorious food:
A voucher is always a great stocking filler. They don’t take up too much room and are available to buy in most places. Know someone who loves dining in Dublin? Then a Dine in Dublin voucher is perfect. This voucher can be used in over 30 participating restaurants in Dublin city.
*Vouchers can be posted to you, but to ensure you get it on time for Christmas you can always drop into us in the city centre!
Protect the things they love the most:
For the techie-lovers in your life, make their technology a little more interesting with quirky phone and tablet covers. Apples & Berries in Jervis St have a very colourful range to make that boring technology stand out.
A good book is the gift that keeps on giving:
When it comes to stocking fillers, you really can’t go wrong with a good book. The variety in the city is fantastic. Book shops like Dubray Books on Grafton St, Chapters on Parnell St, or Eason’s O’Connell St all catering for different genres. If you are looking for rare books try Ulysses Rare Book Store on Duke Street or Books Upstairs D’Olier St
Soaps and Bath Bombs and Shampoo Bars – oh my!
Something for the shower or the bath is a great filler and they smell great too! Lush has a great range of bath-bombs that look great and make bathtime fun. Or if the person you’re buying for is more the showering type, check out The Body Shop’s range of shower gels with different scents to choose from.
Keep them occupied for days:
Puzzles are a great gift for young and old. Most people won’t admit it but taking time out to put the pieces together and seeing the finished result is the best feeling! Thankfully they come in all shapes and sizes. Try Toymaster or Arts & Hobbies for some interesting puzzle collections.
