We visited the new gift shop at The Four Seasons, Ballsbridge, and honestly? As hotels shops go this is a stroke of creative genius. All of the opaque tights, bottle openers and toothpaste thoughts usually conjured by the words ‘hotel store’ are utterly trashed when you visit the teeny space. The guys at Makers and Brothers have brilliantly stocked the Tiny Gift Shop with everything from woven woolens by Mourne Textiles, teeny mice by Cleo, and more traditional presents too, like Burstenhaus Redecker’s shoe shine kit.
Mice, €9 each
Shoe shine kit, €28
We’ve decided to rename it The Teeny Irish Joy Room.
