Early Gifters

Christmas, it gets earlier every year.

It's that popular phrase we hear every year and it's true. The kids are just gone back to school when we are being met with Christmas decorations and gift ideas. It can become overwhelming. Taking it one gift at a time can help though. It can take the pressure off and being an early gifter and having the majority of your gifts purchased well before the party season kicks off, makes for a very enjoyable stress-free Christmas. 

We have created this gift guide with some inspiration if you need it. We are adding to our Christmas shop over the next couple of weeks and along with your favourite Foxford gifts like our throws, scarves and candles we will be adding bundles. You will be able to choose a comfort bundle, a traditional bundle, a new home bundle, new baby and so much more! As always if you need any style inspo, gift inspo or just Christmas inspiration please don't hesitate to reach out and contact us through our web chat, social media, phone or email!



In early 1922, Foxford Woollen Mills presented a specially commissioned Travel Blanket to General Michael Collins to mark his appointment to Commander in Chief of the newly established Irish Army. The blanket was in his armoured car at the ambush at Béal Na Bláth in August 1922. It was recovered at Shanakiel Hospital by Nurse Nora O'Donaghue and later donated to the National Museum.

Foxford Woollen Mills have reproduced the blanket in conjunction with the Michael Collins House, Clonakilty, Co. Cork.

The blanket is in olive, gold and white in a Melange yarn, using a traditional Foxford check. A vintage 4 ply yarn was used for the weaving similar to the quality wool used in the early part of the last century resulting in a very warm sturdy blanket.





More of our most popular gift ideas are as follows. From candles to throws, prints to stationery. There is a gift for everyone. The gift you receive is having your Christmas wrapped up early!


Keep an eye on our blog and social media over the next month. We will be adding some beautiful Christmas Bundles and new products and as always if you need a hand picking out a gift for that special someone, let us give you some advice.
Happy Shopping
