If one of the people on your holiday shopping list is celebrating his or her first-ever holiday season this year, there's no doubt an Irish gift would be perfect for them. From cute Irish-themed bibs to baby Aran cardigans to baby’s first Ireland t-shirt, there are loads of great Irish baby gift options, suitable newborns through the toddler years.
Baby Aran Cardigan
This gorgeous merino wool baby cardigan was hand-knit in the heart of County Mayo, Ireland, using age-old Irish knitting techniques. The merino wool is organic, pure, and luxuriously soft, so baby will love the feel. The wool is also super-warm and durable, so the sweater can withstand a lot of use! The cardigan comes in a natural white color and adorable brown football buttons.
Shamrock Carraig Donn Baby Blanket
You don’t need Irish heritage to appreciate this adorable shamrock and sheep baby blanket; the luxuriously soft Merino wool is empirically lovely to touch for all. Wherever you’re from, this wonderfully cozy piece will leave you with an appreciation for traditional Aran knitting, as its classic cable stitches heighten the texture and beauty of the warm wool. Light green sheep and shamrocks add a dash of whimsy and Irish luck that baby will enjoy!
Baby’s First Ireland Shirt
This adorable top is a must for every baby of Irish heritage (or with plans to visit the Emerald Isle someday)! Made in a soft, durable cotton, Baby’s First Ireland Shirt has a vibrant green color and will be a great keepsake or hand-me-down.
Baby Pink Irish Shamrock Booties
Is there anything cuter than tiny feet wearing little baby booties with bows? (Not much). These cozy booties from Traditional Craft are the sweetest things. Baby will love the soft and warm acrylic, and you’ll love the vibrant pink shamrock print. They also come in green.
Printed Baby Bib ‘a Bottle Of The House White Please’
This funny cotton bib makes for a perfect baby shower present or newborn’s gift. Soft machine-washable cotton and string ties ensure that this baby’s bib from Traditional Craft has a comfy fit.
Baby will look cute as a button in this Irish romper from Lansdowne. Made of a soft but durable cotton, the romper features horizontal green-and-white stripes and an embroidered three-shamrock over the heart (the Irish rugby team’s emblem!). Snap button enclosures along the legs make the romper super-easy to take on and off, and the three-button placket and collar is a sweet (and funny) dignified touch.
Green Aran Pinafore Dress
What’s more adorable than a baby girl in a pinafore dress? Not much! This sweet Carraig Donn dress is made of a super-soft Merino wool that’s plush and organic (never scratchy), knit with gorgeous Aran patterns rich in Irish history. We love its vibrant green shade, perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or any celebration, really. The different-color buttons add a final fun, whimsical touch.
Baby Ireland Polo Shamrock Vest
Here’s another one for the sporting baby! Lansdowne keeps baby looking sharp with this extremely cute polo-inspired onesie. The outfit comes in a crisp white cotton with dark green-accents. A two button placket and collar gives the whole ensemble an elegant look, and the snap enclosures make wardrobe changed very easy.
Shamrock Irish Baby Onesie
This sweet Irish onesie from Traditional Craft is made from a cozy soft (yet sturdy) 100% cotton that baby will love. Snap enclosures make for an easy removal, and the green shamrocks with pink hints on white print make for a pretty print.
