Saint Patrick’s day is celebrated on the 17th of March to commemorate the death of Saint Patrick, the foremost patron saint of Ireland. In America, it is a raucous holiday that includes dancing, parades, and plenty of drinking. It was once a holiday only recognized by the Irish, and observed by the attending of church services, but now it’s a day where almost everyone will instead don a shamrock and see how much green beer they can drink. Don’t think that there aren’t opportunities for thoughtful gifts, however! If you’re looking for a St. Patrick’s Day gift, there are plenty of ideas from the traditional to the irreverent party favor.
St. Patrick’s Day can be about more than just drinking. With the right gifts, it can turn into a day that becomes a wonderful and meaningful memory. Shop with care, then enjoy the celebration!
