Are you missing a celebration, or know someone who deserves a treat? Here are some thoughtful Irish gift ideas that can be delivered to your loved one

Level 5 certainly feels a little tougher than the first lockdown. Sending someone a gift just because is a lovely gesture, and as well as letting them know you’re thinking of them, you’ll get that feelgood buzz that comes with doing something nice for someone else. Here are some gift ideas to consider for the people you are missing over the next few weeks.

For the chocolate lover

Bean and Goose‘s handmade chocolate in Co Wexford is something to savour. Their products are made with sustainably sourced single origin Ecuadorian chocolate, delivered in an eco-friendly gift box. The gift box includes chocolate peanut butter pieces or chocolate popcorn pieces, three 70g bars of single origin chocolate, in three flavours; milk salty almonds, milk smoky salt and dark umami seaweed.
