St. Patricks Day Gift Ideas - Artisan Handmade



St. Patrick’s Day will be here before we know it, when all those with Irish heritage (or those that wish they had Irish blood) wear green and wax lyrical about the The Emerald Isles.  And, if you have ever visited Éire, you will know the nagging inner yearning to always go back.


It’s with St. Patrick’s Day in mind that I decided to share seven items from seven handmade artists, all featuring the color green in its many shades.  Why seven beauties you might ask? I chose that number from two symbols that always show up for St. Patrick’s Day, symbols which are often confused: the shamrock (which has 3 leaves) and the lucky four leaf clover (which, obviously from its name, has 4 leaves).  Seven leaves, seven items. The shamrock is a three-leaved clover, a plant was used by Saint Patrick to illustrate the doctrine of the Trinity. It is the national symbol of Ireland, the word coming from seamróg, the Irish name for the plant. The four leaf clover is an aberration of white clover which normally only has three leaves.  Occasionally white clover produces an extra leaf, making finding one especially lucky.





I hope you enjoy the lovely items featured.  Anyone will feel lucky to receive one as a St. Patrick’s Day gift!

Such a lovely St Patrick's Day collection of handmade!

Thanks so much for this sweet collection celebrating Ireland! Interesting info too, about the number 7. How true that once you go to Eire, you always want to go back. It's such a beautiful place, and particularly fun if you (or your traveling companion) has friends/relatives there. Of course, it's easy to make friends in Ireland, so if you go there knowing no one, you will probably leave knowing plenty. :)

Will be pinning and tweeting the blog and all the wonderful handmade items. Thanks again, and again, Happy Birthday to the Moose Boy!


Thanks so much Catherine for the promotion and including my frogs in this delightful posting.
Love the story.

I have clicked on each post and etsy won't let me scroll down to tweet or pin.

Never had this happen before, maybe it is my computer.
Anyone else having this problem.

Having to tweet direct and copy paste the description.

Have a great evening all.

Was able to tweet and pin.
