For the man who loves the outdoors, the Ribbed Merino Troyer with zipped collar sports the fisherman’s ribbed stitch famed for its protective quality. Available in seven color options including classic navy blue and versatile steel marl, you are guaranteed to find one to suit the man you love.


If you’re in search of a smaller gift for mailing or for the ideal stocking filler, then look no further than our stylish men’s accessories. The Aran Christmas Men’s Store features unique gift ideas including Kerry tweed and leather gloves and the universally loved Trinity Tweed Flat Cap for the dapper chap in your life.

The fleece lined Aran cable headband is perfect for staying warm on long walks, as is the hooded Donegal Tweed wool country walking cape.  The latter is available in wine, moss green, charcoal, or red, all of which are lined with beautiful coordinating plaid.

The Women’s Heavyweight Merino Wool Aran Sweater is also a winner with professional women thanks to the flexibility of its style. This sweater looks great with a crisp white shirt or accessorized with an on trend wide waist belt.

Christmas Gifts For Couples

When in doubt about what gifts to buy for individual members of your family, there is always the option of buying couples gifts instead. Gifts for couples are a great way to celebrate your family and their special relationships.

For loved up couples who love to snuggle up on the sofa for movie night, you can’t go wrong with a wool throw.  Choose from soft lambswool in a herringbone or check pattern or an Aran knitted throw available in more than 10 colors.


For the tea lovers, we have the ultimate cute ‘n cozy gift to put a smile on their face every day of the week. The Aran cable knit tea cozy will remind them of you and happy Christmas memories every time they make a pot.

Every family has at least one couple that likes to coordinate (whether they admit it or not).

His and hers Irish wool socks will go down a treat as will matching Merino Wool cable knit hats.

If you have new homeowners on your Christmas shopping list then you are guaranteed to put a smile on their face with a thoughtful gift for their home. Aran-knit cushion covers are a popular gift option as the natural color works well with any home decor color scheme. They can be used in the family room on sofas or for extra comfort and luxury in a bedroom.

Christmas Gifts For Kids

No matter how much we grown-ups love Christmas, we will never be able to match the level of excitement that kids have for the festive season. Their sheer joy in the run-up to Santa’s arrival is contagious and the glee on their faces as they discover gifts under the tree on Christmas day can’t be beaten.

We have the sweetest gift ideas for the youngsters in your family, starting with the newest arrivals. Anyone with a baby will be smitten with the sheepskin baby booties from the Aran Christmas Store. These natural, organic, and easy care booties are sure to become a keepsake once baby grows out of them.

Toddlers and infants will love our Aran wool sheep teddies and baby teddy bears. We’ve no doubt they will become firm favorites with your little ones. Young nephews and nieces and grandkids will look like adorable little lambs in our Hooded Baby Capelet with Ears. As well as being incredibly cute, they offer practical warmth for outside playtime too.

As children get older they will love the cozy warmth of their very first Aran sweater. With so many fun styles, patterns, and colors to choose from, you will be spoilt for choice this Christmas. The kid’s hooded cardigan with pockets and the super soft merino wool sweaters are firm favorites.

Christmas Gifts For Yourself

The only way to guarantee that you get the gift you really want this Christmas is to buy it for yourself. Treat yourself to some Christmas lux with our cable knit hoodie or double collar merino wool coat. Both of these flattering pieces have zip openings and pockets and come in a range of colors.

If your holiday traditions include curling up with a new book on Christmas eve then look no further than the Aran Christmas Store for the perfect accessories to snuggle up in.

Tips For Choosing The Perfect Christmas Gift

Christmas shopping should be a stress-free and fun activity that gets you in the mood for the festive fun ahead. Here are our top 3 tips for happy Christmas shopping..

  1. Get started early

When it comes to finding gifts for all the family the earlier you start planning your gift ideas the better. Getting a jump start on your shopping means that your gifts will be better thought out, more suitable for the recipient and that they will arrive on time.

  1. Have A Christmas Brainstorm

Do some detective work before you start shopping. Find out what size clothes each family member wears and what colors they favor. Remember, that children are often bigger or smaller in size than their age range in clothes would suggest (if in doubt always buy the size above their current age).  Think about the interests and hobbies of the family members on your Christmas list. Are they the outdoor adventure type or a stay indoors surrounded by their creature comfort types?

  1. Budget For Delivery & Look For Special Offers

Shopping online is an easy way to get your Christmas shopping done and is a great choice for anyone looking for that extra special gift that you can’t source closer to home. When you shop online look at the delivery details of a site before you start shopping. That way you will avoid the disappointment of realizing that the postage and packaging cost is too high or the delivery time is too slow. Online shops that offer a flat rate for deliveries are a safe bet and will be easier to budget. Stick to the sites that are transparent about their shipping costs and processes.

As a valued customer you should expect to receive some kind of reward for your loyalty. That’s why we offer our online shoppers a $20 voucher every time you shop with us. A store that values your patronage will always go out of its way to show you that your business is appreciated.

Make this Christmas one to remember with cozy, unique gifts that the whole family will love.
