People around the world live for and look forward to the holidays. The markets are lively; families take advantage of this hiatus to spend time with each other. And people are busy preparing gifts for their loved ones. This article shares the best Irish gift ideas for every holiday.
A blessing on a plaque makes a meaningful gift because you are not just wishing goodness on your loved ones. You’re also sending them luck, abundance, guidance, and many other virtues rolled into one.
“May your home be trimmed in love
With joy wound round and round,
May laughter raise the waters
And merriment around…
May your heart glow with the smiles
Of all your kith and kin
And may heaven grace your
As the good Lord dwells within.”
Belleek Tea For One
Beautiful tea sets aren’t meant to gather dust on the top shelf. It’s meant to be enjoyed with people you love, drinking tea they love. Send the memo!
Every day is a special occasion. We love this iconic tea for one set with quintessential Irish symbolisms – shells, harps, and shamrocks and made in Ireland.
The Celtic Knot™ Pendant
This Celtic Knot keepsake is a class on its own. This pendant stands out because of its meaning, especially at this time of year. It signifies eternity, a never-ending promise of dedication to love, health, career, and life’s purpose.
Traditional Aran Sweater
One of the best Irish gift ideas is the classic Aran sweater! An Aran sweater is also known as a “Fisherman Sweater” and is noted for its use of complex stitch patterns. This delicate garment had us at “finest merino wool” from the Merino sheep.
It’s known the world over for its exceptionally soft and delicate texture, as well as its water-repellent features. Merino wool is naturally long, so aside from its natural insulation, it makes for stronger fiber—an excellent gift for both men and women.
Irish Wool Trinity Flat Cap
This Irish wool trinity flat cap goes well with that traditional Aran sweater! Handcrafted using age-old methods by the Mucros weavers, this Trinity Flat cap is made from the finest and purest wool. Fully lined for comfort and warmth, it adds that elegant touch to anyone!
A Susan Boyle CD
Susan Boyle is the daughter of Irish immigrants to Glasgow. She rose to fame after her superb performance as a contestant on Britain’s Got Talent (third cycle), singing “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables.
She broke all stereotypes and was at the receiving end of the typically ruthless judge, Simon Cowell’s praises. Her voice and rendition of songs will touch the heart of anyone who receives it as a gift.
Irish Breakfast Basket
Nothing says Nollaig Shona dhuit (Null-eg henna which, Happy Christmas!) than an Irish breakfast comes Christmas morn. The Irish are big on breakfast. For a reason, it's called the “Full Irish” – it’ll tide you over until past lunch!
This gift basket includes a delectable selection of bacon, pudding, Irish sausages, Barry's tea, Irish jam, and Kerrygold – the cream of Irish butter.
A Symbolic And Elegant Jewellery Set
It’s the season of indulgence; up the ante with this earring, necklace, and ring set. All pieces are inspired by the infinity and goddess knot – Celtic symbols representing love, friendship, faith, and loyalty for hundreds of years. It comes in 18K white gold finishing that exudes quality and elegance.
