Whether you're playing Secret Santa, decking the halls or dressing up for Zoom drinks we’ve got the Lockdown-limbo shopping tips to make your yuletide a cracker. 

Tweed dog collars, self-care kits, personalised whiskey bottles and Cork-centric prints are just some of the goodies from retailers – local and large – making spirits bright; plus 20 gifts under €20 to keep those stockings stuffed.
