IRISH company CraicPack has released its Christmas line of ‘care packages’ for those expats missing that little taste of home.
Included are Irish favourites like Barry’s Tea, Tayto crisps and Wexford Home Preserves strawberry jam.
This year the Dublin-based firm has put out two festive hampers packed with those home comforts to see you through the festive period.
The ‘Advent Box’ features: a Cadbury Advent Calendar, mince pies, limited edition Cadbury chocolates, Lucozade and more (see below).
Meanwhile, the ‘Irish Christmas Box’ comes complete with: Cadbury Roses, a Christmas pudding, Bisto Gravy, Butlers hot chocolate, a handwritten Christmas card and more.
A spokesperson for the firm said: “Not being home for Christmas is incredibly difficult and we aim to help Irish expats who are feeling homesick.
“We also want to make it easier for people in Ireland to show their loved ones abroad that they are thinking of them this Christmas season.”
Both boxes are available from €49 and can be ordered online.
