The best St Patrick's Day gifts

St Patrick’s day gifts for large budgets

#1 Irish landownership

Even though St. Patrick’s Day was originally a celebration of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland who brought Christianity to the island back in the 5th century, it has turned into a celebration of anything Irish (especially in The US). And what is a better way to celebrate the Irish and Irish heritage, than to become an official owner of land in Ireland?

That’s right nothing.

I think it’s one of the funniest gifts for St. Patrick’s Day, though keep in mind that it’s a symbolic landownership. They can’t actually build a house or live on the land, unfortunately.

For more typical Irish gifts, check out my Ireland gift guide.


#2 A trip to Ireland or a St Patrick’s Parade


Besides owning land in Ireland, visiting the homeland is another great Saint Patrick’s day gift. So if you have the budget, head over to Skyscanner and book a flight for the 17th of March to celebrate the next Paddy’s Day like the locals.

Though to be honest, there are some US cities (Boston or Chicago, for example) that actually take St. Patrick’s Day way more seriously than the Irish themselves.

I mean, Chicago even turns the color of the river green for St. Patrick’s Day! That’s a pretty serious commitment to me.

So another alternative is to take the recipient to Boston or Chicago (or other US cities) to visit the parade.

Check out Etsy to find many different designs, or buy my favorite one with the two shamrocks.


#5 Bottle of Irish whiskey

If you are really not sure what St Patrick’s gifts you should get, you can always go for the safe option; a gift card.

I know that gift cards are often considered a bad gift, but I disagree. I actually think they are the most practical and thoughtful gifts for people you don’t know very well or for people who are difficult to shop for. Plus you can get super creative when gifting a gift card, or simply go for the St Patrick’s-themed gift card on Amazon.

Whether you’re buying gifts for kids or adults, you can never go wrong with St Patrick’s Day candy!

You can literally find any type of green-colored candy, but since these will usually have a mint flavor (and I am not a big fan of mint candy), I selected two other cool options.

The first one is a pack of Oreos with leprechaun and shamrock decorations, and the second one are chocolate coins wrapped in green paper. The latter is great for kids if you want a fun way to give them their personal pot of coins.
