Irish Fairy Door Company

For something that little bit more magical than your average gift, a beautiful wooden fairy door from The Irish Fairy Door Company is just perfect!

My nieces are big believers in fairy folk and this is something I'm so keen to introduce my sons to as I think life is always better with a little bit of childhood fairytale magic - the idea behind the fairy door is to choose your colour/style of door from the website, and set it up in your home - you leave the stepping stones and magic key beside it overnight and if in the morning the key is gone - you know a fairy has moved in!!

You register your fairy online, and can then access a world of magic via the Irish Fairy Door Company website!

I think this is a beautiful gift and something that will give so many years of magic.

Available from the Irish Fairy Door Company - prices starting at £19.99
