Top Irish Christmas Gift Ideas
At Purchase.ie when possible we try to sell Irish products to our customers whilst ensuring that we can sell at a price which offers our customers value for money.
We are one of only a select few Irish based online stores which have a dedicated section on our website for products which are designed or manufactured in Ireland.
With 75% of the money that Irish consumers are spending online every year leaving these shores we encourage you to make an effort to help stem the tide and Buy Irish Online where possible in the run up to Christmas. Obviously look for value for money first but think Irish thereafter in an effort to boost the domestic economy and encourage the creation of new jobs.
