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!

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:

Large Merino Shamrock Throw Blanket

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 super-soft and thick merino wool, a lovely Irish throw blanket knitted with classic Aran stitches is rich in history. If you're looking for a different size or color, you can find various Aran-designed throws for St. Patrick's Day available at Shamrockgift, ready to be shipped and make a perfect gift.

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 to any of our friends or family.

While there is a whole host of different Claddagh rings for men and women available, an exquisite stainless steel ring from Solvar Jewelry is particularly stunning. As well as a sparkling crystal that makes up the heart centerpiece in this ring, it, of course, features the iconic heart (love), crown (loyalty) and the hands (friendship).

Irish Blessing Home 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.

Keily's offers the largest selection of online Stained Glass Windows, Suncatchers, and Panels featuring unique and iconic Irish designs and heartwarming blessings. Check them out today.

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, and 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 box of delicious Dairy Cream Toffee.

Happy St Patrick's Day!
