There’s never been much of a tradition of gift giving on St. Patrick’s Day but we don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t buy something special this year for those you love to celebrate your shared Irish heritage and all the beautiful crafts that come with it.
Here are IrishCentral’s top five St. Patrick’s Day gifts:
Stainless Steel Green Crystal Claddagh Ring
A Claddagh ring is a firm favorite present at any time of the year and we’ll use any excuse to gift this beautiful Irish tradition onto any of our friends or family.
While we have a whole host of different Claddagh rings for men and women available, this exquisite stainless steel ring from Solvar Jewelry is particularly stunning. As well as a sparkling green crystal that makes up the heart centerpiece in this ring, it, of course, features the iconic heart (love), crown (loyalty) and the hands (friendship).
Large Merino Shamrock Throw
There are tons of different ways you can celebrate this St. Patrick’s Day and not all of them involve even leaving the house. Why not curl up with a great Irish book on a chair decorated with this beautiful throw?
Crafted from a super-soft and thick merino wool, this lovely Irish throw blanket is knit with classic Aran stitches rich in history and comes in a creamy natural white with a pretty shamrock border for contrast.
God Bless Our Home Square Panel
An ideal housewarming gift throughout the year, wish the luck of the Irish on your friends this St. Patrick’s Day with a special message for all who enter their home.
This vivid and vibrant multicolored stained glass window hanging from Royal Tara features gorgeous Celtic knotwork and a blessing in a Celtic font. The panel comes in a gift box and a hook is provided for hanging.
Belleek Saint Patrick’s Cross Ornament
If you wish to give your friends a special blessing that is more closely linked to St. Patrick, this cross ornament made by the outstanding Belleek Pottery is simple, elegant, yet still, holds plenty of Irish charm.
The stunning hand-painted St. Patrick’s Cross is made from Parian china and makes a truly beautiful wall decoration.
Kate Kearney’s Dairy Cream Toffee
Everyone knows that the very best of Irish grannies will have a few Irish toffee hiding in their handbag while they watch the St. Patrick’s Day parade, ready to whip out and appease their grandchildren when little feet start to get tired from all the merriment.
Make sure they’re all stocked up before they head out for fun this year with this three pack of boxes of the delicious Dairy Cream Toffee.
