We had a chat with some of the Magee 1866 team about what they would like to find wrapped up under their tree this Christmas. 

Charlotte | Creative Director  

Wish list – Fern Throw

“Cosying up on the sofa with the kids under one of the new brightly coloured throws to watch a Christmas film (‘A Boy Called Christmas’ is our favourite) is my idea of bliss. If my children are reading this (or husband!) this is what I would love for Christmas.”  


Daniel | Ecommerce Manager  

Wish list – Sheelin Jacket

“I love the new Sheelin jacket in the Blackwatch check. It’s warm and comfortable but smart enough to pair with jeans for a Christmas night out with friends.” 


Kieran | Assistant Manager – Magee of Donegal  

Wish list – Achill Polo Jumper

“You can never have too much knitwear. I love the Achill polo jumper, it’s a nice casual alternative to a shirt under a Donegal Tweed jacket or just on its own. Lightweight and super soft thanks to the cashmere, yet warm and cosy. A great layering piece.”


Sorcha | Digital Marketing Manager  

Wish list – Nessa Coat

“One of my favourite things to do on Christmas morning is to go out for a walk with family and plan the day ahead. Weather in the Northwest can be unpredictable to say the least, so the Nessa coat would be perfect! The quilting and longer length mean I can pop it on over a jumper and jeans and wrap up well in one of my Magee 1866 scarves. Ideal!” 


Rosy | CEO – Magee Clothing  

Wish list – Clodagh Jacket

“Christmas is a really busy time, travelling around to catch up with family and friends with lots of different events. I would love to find the Clodagh shirt jacket (the herringbone one in a luxury baby alpaca blend) under the tree, it’s so versatile and will go with so many different looks – both smart and casual.“ 

Our carefully curated gift guides have something for everyone this Christmas. Bringing together a luxurious selection of ideas from across our collections, you can be assured that each piece has been designed and made with longevity in mind and will be enjoyed and treasured for years to come. 

As a 5th generation Irish family business, we are acutely aware of the importance of spending time with family and stressing about gifting should be the last thing on your mind. Our collections focus on slow fashion and high-quality pieces that will stand the test of time.

For Her 

Contemporary tweeds, designed and woven at our mill in Donegal, are paired with timeless styles in the women’s range of jackets and coats. These are show stopping pieces that will bring a smile to anyone’s face on Christmas morning. 

Lightweight and luxuriously soft, our new range of organic cotton and cashmere blend jumpers are available in two styles – the Imogen and Eve – and a range of festive hues. For fans of colour, look no further than our selection of Liberty of London print shirts and tunics in a deliciously soft cotton. 

For Him

One of the key characteristics of Donegal Tweed is the colourful neps you find in the threads, originally made using natural-plant dyes found in the surrounding landscape, this season we have brought this ‘Donegal fleck’ through to our knitwear. New styles the Clifden turtleneck and Port fisherman rib cardigan both pay homage to Ireland’s long standing fishing traditions and join a range of knitwear focusing on natural fibres including lambswool and organic cotton and cashmere blends.  

There is always space in his wardrobe for a beautifully made shirt, from Irish Linen to super soft flannel and traditional checks, you will find something to suit his style. These styles pair perfectly with our signature Donegal Tweed jackets, choose from tailored or classic fit and for someone extra special, explore the pieces in handwoven tweed. 

Made in Ireland

Our weaving mill in Donegal Town, on the banks of the river Eske, is still the beating heart of everything we do at Magee. we are proud to support a tradition of weaving and manufacturing textiles in the northwest of Ireland, bringing a contemporary edge to an age-old craft. Our exclusive range of scarves, pashminas, and home interior throws are designed and made in Ireland in a range of colours and patterns inspired by the land and seascapes of Donegal.

Father’s Day is a time to take a step back and acknowledge the dad in your life. Usually falling on a bright summer’s day (we hope we don’t jinx this!), it is the perfect time to gather around and spoil your dad.  

We asked some of the Magee 1866 team how they will be marking Father’s Day this year. 

Charlotte – Creative Director 

“With three young kids we have a very busy house, this Father’s Day will be like every Sunday, lots of sport, family time and an attempt at a civilised Sunday lunch! Alongside homemade cards and gifts, the kids will be getting their dad one of our Irish Linen Shirts. Versatile enough to wear to the office or on the weekend, I love the look of linen and its natural and sustainable virtues cannot be beaten. ” 

Daniel – Ecommerce Manager 

“The summer for us is all about time together at the beach. I’ve been dropping hints about our new Dungloe chino shorts and Marfagh polos, they would make a great addition to my summer wardrobe. As for the day, I’ll enjoy some fish & chips by the sea with my wife and three boys. “ 

Rosy – CEO Magee Clothing  

“This Father’s Day myself and dad will be biking across Northern Norway. We’re both really sporty and the love of the outdoors is something we have always bonded over, whether it’s daily swims down at our local beach or weekend cycles across Donegal. Although it’s bright for 24 hours a day at this time of year there, it can get chilly at night, so I’ll be packing a Shannon cashmere blend crew neck jumper for dad’s Father’s Day gift. Lightweight but warm and easy to pack on a bike!” 

 
Don’t forget – Father’s Day is Sunday, 19th June 2022. For more inspiration, explore our Father’s Day gift guide.

Mothers are special, make sure they know it. 

It’s been a tough year for everyone. Lockdowns, separated from the ones we love and the dreaded homeschooling! 

 This Mother’s Day, more than ever, you should take the chance to spoil your mum. We spoke to some of the Magee 1866 team about how they are going to celebrate this year.  

Charlotte – Design Director 

“As a mum of three young kids, Mother’s Day is usually marked by cuddles and cards in bed – their weekend clock can be pretty early so I am not sure a lie-in is on the agenda! My kids love art and I have some very special cards and pictures from the last few years. Mother’s Day to me means spring, so we try to spend some time outdoors, usually that would include a visit to my parents but this year we’ll FaceTime instead. My ideal Mother’s Day gift would be our Grey Donegal Tweed Lily Jacket, it’s the perfect style for this time of year and looks great paired with skinny jeans and white trainers for an off-duty Sunday.”  

Sorcha – Digital Marketing 

“I won’t get to see my mum this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make a fuss. My mum loves to accessorize, so I’ve picked one of our gorgeous new Glen Check wide scarves, designed and woven here in Donegal. The neutral grey shade is really versatile and with the Irish weather the way it is I’m confident she will get many opportunities to wear it.” 

Daniel – Ecommerce Manager 

“With two young boys at home, the greatest gift I could give my wife is the day off! Me and the boys will head out for the afternoon and leave my wife to relax and catch up on her favourite Netflix shows. Our Wigwam throws are ideal for tucking up in on the couch, the boys can buy the chocolates. 

Don’t forget – Mother’s Day is Sunday, 14th March 2021. Explore our gift guide here.
