4. Order a McCambridge’s Charcuterie & Cheese Box

These boxes are packed full of delicious savory bites, perfect for any night in. The tasty treat includes olives and sun-dried tomatoes, chutney, pâté, St Tola Irish goats cheese ash log, Mossfield Mediterranean cheese, Gubbeen cheese, French saucisson with pistachio, serrano ham, quince jelly and Le Petit Delice Galway bread. Order before 12 noon for next day collection!




5. Have a Seasonal De-Clutter

A clear space is a clear mind, isn’t that what they say. Why not take the time to clean out what you don’t need, just in time for Christmas. There are even services, like Elephant Self Storage, a family-run, Irish-owned storage facility, that will come and take boxes of unwanted clutter away. Perfect before the Christmas decorations go up.
