  • Make a shopping list – who do you need to buy a present for? Is it gifts for him? Or gifts for her?
  • Know your budget.
  • If you’re not sure what they’ll like…. Go with a safe choice.
  • Put the kettle on and read on; we have solutions for you!


So what is a safe bet Christmas present in 2019?

 We know a safe bet is one that’s certain to succeed. There are not many safe bets in life but happily, in the case of Christmas presents - that are plenty out there that you really cannot go wrong with. In our experience, one of the best gifts you can give (and have) is glassware because people simply love to have good glassware at home. Timeless, luxurious and classy – good glassware can add a touch of sophistication to any gathering. Some of the best glassware brands we have come from the two powerhouses of businesses in Munster: Waterford Crystal and Tipperary Crystal. Let’s take a festive peak: 

Brand #1 Waterford Crystal

Waterford Crystal Marquis Brady Bowl 9"

Tierneys ChristmasThe Marquis collection combines versatility with value, using classic Waterford designs on fine crystal to create stemware and giftware of astonishing clarity and with substantial weight.
