One toyshop owner says there is no need to rush out to buy Christmas presents.
It comes as Ireland is set to enter level five coronavirus restrictions from midnight on Wednesday.
This will see non-essential retailers close their doors, including toyshops.
However retailers will be allowed to continue offering 'click-and-collect' services during lockdown.
Places such as supermarkets, newsagents, pharmacies, pet food stores, banks, laundries and office supplies will be allowed remain open.
While the Government's guidelines for essential retail state that "any other retail outlet that operates an online or other remote system of ordering goods for purposes of collection at the retail outlet" is included.
Alison Murphy owns The Toy Shop in Malahide, Co Dublin.
She told Lunchtime Live there are ways around this.
"I know we were depending on a big, big Christmas - but unfortunately it is what it is.
"We have to move back online again, we have to move to click and collect.
"But I think it's going to be OK, Santa has to come and we're going to be here.
"Our shelves are stocked completely, so there is ways and means of getting the toys.
"So this, the hysteria: there is toys out there and Christmas will happen".
Asked what is popular this Christmas, she said people are going back to basics.
"The basics are all still really, really popular.
"We sell a lot of arts and crafts, the wooden train sets, all the wooden toys for babies, rocking horses, dolls houses.
"It's really traditional toys that we saw in lockdown came around again - all the chess, the draughts - they're still really, really popular".
She said her business has not been hit with any big issues in terms of getting stock.
"For me I haven't, mainly because my quantities aren't as huge as some other shops.
"I've found it OK and we're really fully stocked at the moment.
"Our chain of supply has been OK.
"There's a few things that are out of stock, but you do alternatives and you try and find other things to stock instead".
