10 Cute Little Gifts to Buy for St. Patrick's Day

Updated on October 30, 2012

St. Patrick's Day isn't a holiday that we usually think of as a gift-giving holiday. It might be a holiday to go out drinking and dancing or to eat traditional Irish foods but it's not a holiday that you buy presents for. However, it is precisely the holidays that people don't expect gifts for that are the best holidays for gift giving. There's low-pressure since no one is expecting a gift and you get the chance to really surprise someone in your life with a well-timed gift. You don't have to spend a lot of money on these gifts, either. A couple of cute items can go a long way. Below you'll find ten suggestions of what you might want to get for someone for this holiday.

1. Leprechaun Necklace

The leprechaun is such a fun little symbol for this holiday. Getting someone a piece of jewelry with this little guy on it can be a nice gesture. Buy a leprechaun charm for a necklace that she already owns or get a new necklace with a leprechaun on it. There are also rings, bracelets and earrings featuring this funny little character. I wouldn't spend a lot of money on something like this, personally, but instead make it a cute little piece of jewelry that is only going to be worn around this time of year.

2. Green Glitter Shoes

Even grown-up girls like an excuse to play out their fairytale fantasies with their clothing. Buy the woman in your life a pair of glittery green heels or flats for St. Patrick's Day and watch her eyes light up with love for them. Sparkles and a little bit of silliness go a long way towards making a holiday like this one just a little bit more fun. Of course, little girls will love this present as well!

3. Four Leaf Clover Plant

This symbol of good luck is a great gift to give someone in any form. You'll find that there are four leaf clover charms and cuff links and all sorts of other products that make great little gifts at this time of year. However, a plant is a unique little gift that people can actually enjoy all year long. A four leaf clover plant is unique, pretty, fun and suggests that you want the person you give it to to have good luck in his or her home.

4. St. Patrick's Day Book

Books always make wonderful gifts for people. A book about St. Patrick's Day is a great little gift at this time of year. This is especially great for kids since kids love to celebrate every little holiday. There are lots of great children's books about St. Patrick's Day. However, there are gift books and fictional books that touch on this topic for adults as well. Check your local bookstore; they probably have a display that will make it easy to find what you're looking for.

5. St. Patrick's Day Shot Glass

There is no denying that for many people St. Patrick's Day is a drinking holiday. You might be going out to get green beer with your buddies but there is a good chance that someone in your group is more of a liquor kind of person. Maybe you'll end up doing Irish car bombs. Whatever you drink, a St. Patrick's Day shot glass makes a great little souvenir to recognize the night. Give it to friends or to someone special that you're toasting as the evening goes on.

6. Kiss Me, I'm Irish items

This is one of the most famous sayings that you see people wearing around this time of year. People love to get them, especially from someone that they enjoy kissing. It's a little bit like getting mistletoe for your house at Christmastime. The most common gifts bearing this saying are t-shirts but you can also get something more unique like a wallet or coin purse that has this saying on it.

7. Green Makeup

You wouldn't typically think that green makeup would be attractive. However, it can be used to create a wonderful look on eyes, a look that is wonderfully fun to wear on St. Patrick's Day. Get glittery green eyeshadow for a woman in your life that you want to look great on this holiday this year. And don't forget that you can also get green face painting make-up for people of all ages. Decorate your cheek with a four leaf clover or other makeup design before going out for the evening. It adds childlike fun to the evening.

8. St. Patrick's Day movie

Are you not the type to want to spend the holiday out drinking with everyone else? Would you rather spend it inside, cuddled up on the couch with someone that you like being alone with? A St. Patrick's Day movie is a great choice for a gift for this holiday then. Any Irish movie will do. St. Patrick's Day, Finian's Rainbow and Darby O'Gill and the Little People are three top choices for St. Patrick's Day movies.

9. Any Green Accessory

Accessories of any kind make great cheap gifts. Green is the color to go for when shopping for St. Patrick's Day, although if you want to be a little bit different then gold is a good color to choose as well. Scarves, headbands and belts are all things that you might want to consider if you're thinking about choosing this type of gift.

10. St. Patrick's Day Costume

A costume is a really fun way to make St. Patrick's Day more fun. Get yourself a costume - leprechauns are a favorite choice, of course. Entertain your date by dressing up. Alternatively, get a costume for your partner if you think that it would be a welcome gift. Another related option is to get bedroom-wear for St. Patrick's Day; a green piece of lingerie or a pair of new Irish green boxer shorts could be a fun little gift at this time of year.
