Christmas Crackers Week

Find the perfect last-minute gift this Christmas!


I think we can all agree that 2018 has absolutely flown on by! The decorations are up, markets are in full swing and the festive tunes are on non-stop repeat – Christmas is well and truly on its way by now. But with it can sometimes come with the stress of wanting to find the perfect gifts and presents for your nearest and dearest, leaving you in a mad rush on the high street as you battle the heaving crowds.

That’s why I’ve gone ahead and teamed up with the lovely folks at Groupon Getaways – during the course of the week we’ll be bringing you a hand-picked selection of top festive deals just in time for the big day!

Sometimes it is hard to come up with a clever gift idea for someone, but I’ve always been a firm believer that a getaway is one of the best presents you could get. After all, memories are absolutely priceless, and being able to share some special moments as a family or couple is something we will always be happy to look back on.

With that in mind I’ve gone and picked some of my favourite deals over on Groupon right now. There’s everything from plush 5* getaways to some of Ireland’s plushest hotels, where you can indulge in a bit of that well-deserved VIP treatment, to even cosy escapes in the countryside spent snuggled up by the fire. Whatever your idea of the perfect getaway is, I’m certain there’ll be something for everyone here.

Every day I’ll be sharing a brand-new Christmas cracker with you guys, so be sure to keep checking back during the week to stay-up-to-date!
