Everyone agrees that it is going to be a Christmas like no other.  It is a year that gifting is going to be even more important, where we are more thoughtful and put more meaning into the gifts we give, as we won’t have the opportunity to celebrate with friends, family and colleagues like in other years.  


Inspired by the natural surrounds of their walled gardens, dating back over 200 years, Carewswood Garden Centre and Cafe have created a beautiful range of luxury Christmas Hampers which are  packed full of the finest seasonal treats from boutique brands and Irish artisan producers. The perfect thoughtful gifts, for a Christmas that will be like no other.


For example their “Carewswood Christmas Comforts Hamper” is presented in a vintage wooden crate and offers everything the lucky recipient will need for a cozy Christmas - award winning wine; a hand poured, beautifully scented candle and lots of artisan treats to indulge with on a cosy night in. The perfect way to say thank you to a friend, colleague or client and comes inclusive of VAT at €90.


Another hamper which is proving very popular with the corporate market and with people who won’t be able to visit close loved ones over Christmas is “The Carewswood Festive Hamper”.  This premium wicker and leather hamper is packed full of exquisite wines and artisan treats both savoury and sweet to suit all tastes. Everything needed this Christmas to enjoy the finest of fare, delivered right to the recipient’s door in time for Christmas.  Including VAT, this hamper costs €165.


Carewswood Gardens are steeped in rich history with links to the gardens in the White House, Washington. Daniel and Juulika Leahy have been the proud owners of the Carewswood Garden Centre and Cafe for the past seven years. They are both deeply passionate about horticulture as well as organic, local and artisan produce, which has led to the success of Carewswood.


Speaking about the success of their business during these unprecedented times which led to the introduction of their new Christmas Hampers, Juulika Leahy said “We were blown away by the success of our online business during this pandemic. Thankfully we were able to pivot the business quickly and successfully. Our customers escaped the constant headlines and got back to nature; everyone had more spare time at home and gardens and homes were transformed. We were delighted to be able to help with our range of plants and trees delivered to our customers' homes nationwide. Our gift range, which we also moved online, was extremely popular and because of this we decided to work with our producers to create a range of very special artisan Christmas Hampers.”


Carewswood knows that gifts should be that bit more special this year, hence their range of unique gifts. The “Gardener Hamper”, “Family Trees” and “Children’s Hampers” are prime examples of these which will be introduced in time for Christmas gifting.  The “Family Trees” gift, a self-pollinating apple tree which produces five different types of apples. This could be a perfect activity for families this Christmas, giving them the opportunity to plant together and watch their “family tree” flourish in the Spring, Summer and Autumn. The “Children’s Hamper” is a lovely gift that will encourage children to get creative this Christmas, connect with nature and develop their green fingers.
