Irish Design Gift Guide – Art & Design

Irish Design Gift Guide - Art & DesignToday I am back with one of my last gift guides of the season. I loved focusing on Irish Design this year and I do hope that perhaps you found a new designer that you had not heard of before or perhaps redeveloped a love for one that you bought from before. Today’s gift guide is all to do with Art & design. Sometimes jewellery or accessories are not the right Christmas gift – but artwork to brighten up or add to someone’s home can be right on the mark.

There are so many talented artists out there that the below is just a small snippet into the beautiful work of Irish Art, illustration and design. And first up, has to be the beautiful, memorable and meaningfulPainted Clans.

Painted Clans

Brendan from Painted Clans has featured on Floralesque before here, and since then my Brennan Coat of Arms has hung proudly in my office. I love that it is both beautiful and meaningful. I feel like it links me to Sligo when I am living away from home. For those who are not aware Painted Clans creates beautiful paintings of your Coat of Arms. The end result is a one of a kind, personalised piece of art that you will treasure for so many years to come. I personally cannot think of a better gift to give someone.

Jill & Gill

Jill & Gill create some of my favourite prints. Hands down this are one of the brands that I have mentioned time and time again when friends ask for present recommendations especially for housewarming gifts. Well, this Christmas they would be the most perfect gift for one of your best friends. Their troll prints are simply adorable and would be such a good talking point in any home. I love the Original Hotline Bling. It is just brilliant and I think so many of us had these as kids!! It would be such a fun way to connect your childhood to someone else’s and a fantastic gift.

Niamh Design Studio

Niamh creates some amazing artwork for children’s wall art. She creates personalised wall art for babies, girls and boys and they are all made in Ireland. The baby wall art is customizable so that you can add your child’s name and birth details. These would make such fab gifts for baby’s first Christmas. The colours also mean that they will be suitable for most nurseries or room colour schemes. There are also beautiful again customizable art suitable for the slightly older child. These would make a stunning addition to any home.

Reddin Design

Gary Reddin is hands down an amazing artist. His work is show stopping and a conversation starter in all the right ways. The range of artwork that he produces is just hands down awesome. And do I sound a little over eager about his work? Well, that’s because I am. He has pieces of Marvel characters to pugs and french bulldogs to the Wild Atlantic Way all the way to Seamus Heaney. This is one online store that you will find something for everyone in – and they will display it proudly in their home.

I think that sometimes it can be so difficult to find the right gift for everyone – and a print or piece of art is often a good option. Especially, if you have been to that loved one’s home and know their colour scheme.
