Fun St. Patrick’s Day Gift Ideas For All The Family

St. Patrick’s Day is the global celebration of Irish culture and heritage and is celebrated in many different parts of the world. If you’re of Irish descent or you just love a reason to celebrate, our unique St Patrick’s Day gift ideas will help you honour the foremost patron saint of the Emerald Isle! 

St. Patrick was born in late 4th century Roman Britain but was taken to Ireland at the age of 16. Legend has it, that he was the son of an English aristocratic family and that he was kidnapped brought to Ireland by raiders and made to tend sheep as a slave.  

Although he escaped Ireland eventually, he returned to convert the Irish to Christianity after hearing the voice of God tell him to do so. Many legends have surrounded St. Patrick over time, such as that he drove all the snakes out of Ireland and used the shamrock to explain the meaning of the Trinity for Christians. 

Whether legend or truth, St. Patrick has become a symbol of Irish Heritage and is celebrated on March 17th each year.  The Patron Saint’s day is more than just a religious festival nowadays, with feasts of traditional Irish food, parades, dancing, music and of course drinking all forming parts of the festivities.

The first St. Patrick’s Day Parade was not actually held in Ireland- it was held in Boston in 1737. Many cities around the world have had a great excuse to throw a party or Céilidh ever since! More than 400 landmarks in more than 50 countries have historically been lit with Emerald Green lighting to celebrate this occasion.

Many people choose to wear the colours of the flag of the Republic of Ireland at these celebrations, which have now spread to many different countries around the world! Legend has it that wearing green makes you invisible to leprechauns, who would normally pinch you if they saw you!  

To give you just a few examples of the types of celebration held around the world; every year the U.S. City of Chicago dyes their river green and the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade is one of the largest parades held anywhere in the world. 

March 17th is a happy occasion, and it is estimated that over 13 million pints of Guinness will be consumed worldwide on that one day. May the luck of the Irish be with you to help with your inevitable hangover!

    St. Patrick’s Day Mug

    This ceramic mug features an original design showing the legend of St Patrick chasing the snakes out of Ireland.

Have a sip of an Irish Coffee from this stylish mug. This mug is also dishwasher and microwave safe!
