Eating outside is such a treat, make it even more special with this gorgeous Toledo stoneware bowl from www.dotcomgiftshop.com for €12.95.
Red5 Ireland have these seriously cute little fishies that will swim continuously around the bowl without ever needing feeding, cleaning or replacing. Secretly hidden in the rock base of the bowl is an invisible magnetic field which will pull the aquatic creatures around the tank. Magic. After witnessing the fallout after our two goldfish, Mario and Luigi, departed for the great swimming pool in the sky recently, this is quite appealing... €10.74 from www.red5.co.uk
We love this nautical-themed tea light holder from Rebornart. Handmade of locally-sourced spalted beech by Marcin Calka, in the beautiful county of Galway and I’m assured the beech pattern of the wood is specific for every piece - so it may be different from this pictured one. It’s 30cm height, base 7cm diameter and a LED battery operated tea light is included. €50 and available from Crafts Council of Ireland.
This will tickle the kids - have a cinema experience without leaving the house with homemade popcorn - for a fraction of the price. Just go easy on the butter and salt, ok? I worry about you people. Available from The Pavilion Garden Centre in Cork for €1.95, www.thepavilion.ie.
