Children of all ages generally love to draw, paint and create, so adding to their collection of art supplies – whether it’s a case of Crayola or something more grown up like a watercolour paint set – check out the Art & Hobby Shop in Jervis Street Shopping Centre or the St Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre, or Easons have a great range in both their O’Connell Street and Nassau Street branches.

Games, consoles and DVDs
