St Patrick’s Day gifts for large budgets

#1 Irish landownership

Symbolic land certificate

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.


#2 St Patrick’s Day gift basket

A St Patrick’s Day gift basket is a super cute way to celebrate this Irish day together. It contains soap, bath bombs, candles, and, of course, green gnomes!


#3 Good luck necklace

Are you looking for cute Saint Patrick’s Day gifts for women?

Then this beautiful necklace from Swarovski with shamrocks is perfect. It’s a cute way for her to show her Irish heritage, without being too obvious, so she can even wear this necklace after March 17th.

For more beautiful Saint Patrick-themed jewelry, check out #18.


#4 Bottle of Irish whiskey

One of the two most famous Irish drinks is, of course, whiskey. So if you need typical Irish St Patrick’s Day gifts, then a bottle of Irish whiskey is an awesome gift idea. Jameson is probably the most famous Irish whiskey so you can never go wrong there.


#5 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.


#6 Sweaters

Depending on where you will be celebrating St Paddy’s Day this year, a cute and warm sweater in green will come in handy!

It’s especially great for people who are always cold, but who also want to show their love for Ireland.

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

#13 Gift card

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.

This beautiful butterfly hanger is one of the best St. Patrick’s Day gifts for someone’s home.

St Patrick’s Day gifts for small budgets

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.


#19 Clover earring studs
