My Ireland Box is a subscription service providing monthly Irish craft or artisan food surprises from Ireland. To celebrate St. Patrick's Day, My Ireland Box graciously provided one craft box as a prize for Irish American Mom's readers.
Before getting into the details of our giveaway, let me first introduce you to this novel gift idea.
What Is My Ireland Box?
My Ireland Box is a curated gift box subscription service, delivering the best of Irish crafts or Irish artisan foods each month. It is a gift that keeps on giving for as long as you wish, and a perfect gift choice for those who love all things Irish.
How Does It Work?
Step 1: Select from either Irish Crafts for Women (available to the USA, UK, and EU) or Irish Artisan Food (available to the UK and EU only). Both are curated and carefully chosen to offer you the best Ireland has to offer.
Step 2: Select your subscription length. You can choose a prepaid gift of one box, 3 boxes (one box for 3 months), 6 boxes (one box for 6 months) or 12 boxes (one box for 12 months).
Step 3: Be surprised each month.
Who Are The People Behind This Great Idea?
Katharine Keane Barrett and Thomas Barrett, a husband and wife duo, who live in Dingle, County Kerry set up My Ireland Box in 2012 as a result of their love of Irish designed crafts and artisan foods.
Thomas was a currency trader by profession and Katharine a qualified solicitor, when they left the corporate world in Dublin in 2007 and returned to Katharine’s native Dingle, County Kerry .
Surrounded by gifted craftspeople and food producers, the idea for My Ireland Box was soon born.
Merging their experiences in the corporate world and their passions for the Irish tourist industry, they launched My Ireland Box.
By creating a subscription gift service they introduce subscribers to wonderful Irish handmade and artisan products and to those who make them!
What Surprises Await In My Ireland Box?
The monthly craft box includes a selection of 1 large or 2-4 Irish made or designed home goods, accessories, jewellery, stationary or beauty products and the value of the box is at least €30, and it’s usually more.
My Ireland Box Food promises a variety of delicious Irish made artisan tasty treats of at least €20 or more in value. Unfortunately for those of us in America, the food box is only available in the EU and UK.
The story and information on each Irish craft maker whose product is featured is included. What a wonderful way to introduce Irish made products to those who may not be able to easily discover or access them.
