This year, choose carefully considered, tasteful gifts from artisan producers.
Ardkeen Quality Food Store is one of our favourite spots in the country to pick up quality Irish foods, including Lismore Company Biscuits, Drummond House Garlic, Harry's Nut Butter, Bean & Goose Chocolate and much more.
Ahead of the festive season, the folks at Ardkeen Quality Food Store have assembled a range of tasteful gift hampers that highlight small-scale food producers and, best of all, can be shipped worldwide, making them ideal gifts for food lovers both home and away. Combining thoughtful, elegant presentation with sustainable packaging choices, both the custom-made hamper boxes and wrapping are completely recyclable, helping to ensure a joyful gift that's good for the environment.
Here, we have rounded up some of our favourites from the range for you to enjoy this Christmas - to see more, visit ardkeen.com.
