SoSueMe’s Christmas Gift Picks from Arnotts!

When it comes to shopping for Christmas gifts, I LOVE those department stores that have every brand under one roof. There is such comfort in being able to buzz around and pick up whatever you need!

Recently my mum and I were in Arnotts, and I got the idea to compile a gift list featuring items all from under the one roof!

Let’s face it, there is always one or two people that you never quite know what to buy for, so here are a few suggestions that might help you along!

Before I go on though, did you know that Arnotts have recently launched a new loyalty programme? Their Wonder Card allows you to earn points with every purchase that you can then use anywhere, anytime on anything. There is DOUBLE points in beauty and TRIPLE points on your birthday and what’s even better is that if you download the ‘Wonder App’ you can earn and burn points as you go!


If the person you are buying for is a jewellery lover, then I have three words for you. Arnotts Jewellery Hall. They have all the major brands such as Alex & Ani, Carat London, and Pandora, so you are pretty much guaranteed to find the perfect token.

I think this Ruby and Vermeil ‘Love Cluster’ necklace (€135) from Juvi Jewellery would be such a sweet gift for your mum, mother-in-law, godmother, grandmother, etc.

Ruby and Vermeil 'Love cluster' Necklace. Euro 135

If that is out of your price range, then I would recommend you have a look at the Alex and Ani range. Arnotts has one of the largest collections of Alex and Ani to choose from, and they can be picked up for as little as €26. Check out the Arnotts range here.

These bracelets are subtle in terms of size but big in terms of statement, and I personally love the positivity and good vibes associated with each one. As you know from previous posts, I am a huge fan of the Alex and Ani range and would definitely recommend these as Christmas gifts!

If a watch would be more to the taste of the lady you are buying for, then have a look at this Marc Jacobs time piece!!

I am so in love with this!

Marc by Marc Jacobs rose gold-tone stainless steel slim blue watch – €199.


And of course, not forgetting the guys! Here’s a piece of Tommy Hilfiger wrist candy that any guy would be proud to receive!

Tommy Hilfiger ‘Brodie’ watch – €149



Smashbox On The Rocks Photo Op Eye Shadow Palette (€54)

How fab is this? Smashbox On The Rocks Photo Op Eye Shadow Palette containing 28 high pigment neutrals and jewel tones to experiment with!

I can’t think of one girl that wouldn’t absolutely adore this! The colours are so vibrant too.

Clinique Sonic Systems (€89)
The Clarisonic has been the must-have skin care product ever since it was released, unfortunately however it’s a tad expensive! A wonderful alternative is the Clinique Sonic Systems.

This gem delivers a deep cleanse and exfoliation and trust me, any beauty-product loving lady who receives this will definitely love it



Fragrance is such a tricky thing to buy because everyone’s taste is very different. If you are unsure what fragrance to buy, I say stick with the classics. It’s hard to go wrong with the firm favourites!

Thierry Mugler Alien (€68.50) is one such iconic fragrance. In fact, it will be celebrating its 10 year anniversary next year.


A party clutch is a fabulous gift to give at Christmas, and with it being the party season, you can be sure it will be put to good use.
How amazing is this Olga Berg Diamante Clutch in Blush (€110)? The Olga Berg range of clutches in Arnotts is to die for!

Arnotts has a brilliant Orla Kiely range but here are three items that caught my eye.

(L-R) Orla Kiely Ballpen €18

Orla Kiely Memo Book Multi €20

Orla Kiely Memo Book €20



I love hats, and if the lady you are buying for is a fellow hat lover, then I can guarantee that this wide brim fedora shape hat designed by Peter O’Brien and hand-made by Irish bespoke milliner John Shevlin, is the perfect gift to give her!

Peter O’Brien Hat – Lauren Oversized Felt Hat Navy €130

POB Navy HAT E130

There is nothing like blasting the music, and this MiFA Speaker is one that will do the job! I think I might actually buy this for myself! I love that it’s a small but yet surprisingly powerful speaker, and it gives brilliant volume and clarity.

Red5 MiFa Bluetooth Speaker (€30 / available in red)


Ahhh the old reliable gift but with a modern twist! What man doesn’t love Ted Baker? Stylish and practical, this is a brilliant stocking filler for any man!

Ted Baker Boonah Socks & Boxers Gift Set (€35)


Arnotts has such a great selection under the one roof, so you will be spoilt for choice!

Happy shopping guys!
