We chosen some of our most popular gifts we sell online for gift ideas for this Valentines’s day. Sending cards and gifts to loved ones on this special day has long been an Irish tradition. In 1836 the remains of St. Valentine were given to the Whitefriar Street Carmelite Church in Dublin, as a gift from Pope Gregory XVI. A shrine dedicated to the saint still remains there today and has engrained a strong tradition of compassion and love on Valentines Day.

It’s a still a chilly time of the year so what better way to show your love for that special lady in your life than a traditional Aran sweater!RoAran

Another very popular gift idea is a woven wool scarf made with extra fine soft Merino wool and pretty in pink you can’t go wrong with one of these scarves.158
