Take A Gift To Your St. Patrick's Day Party Hostess That She'll Treasure For Years!

You're going to a St. Patrick's Day party! Isn't that exciting? You know your hostess has lots of fun and excitement planned for you! Now doesn't she deserve a special treat herself? Imagine the look of surprise on her face when she opens your beautiful hostess gift! She won't be expecting it, it will just completely make her day, and she'll remember your gift forever!

But what to get her? The Irish have so many beautiful things... famous for their incredible laces, linens and knits... beautiful crystal, and don't forget that famous luck!

For a different and fun gift that will last for years, why not pick up a live Shamrock Plant to surprise your hostess! (Ok, you might want to pick up one for yourself at these prices, too!) Read more about the interesting Shamrock Plant below!

I've gone shopping for you and picked some wonderful gifts that would impress your hostess, in several different price ranges. I've chosen gifts only from retailers with rock-solid guarantees and tracking like Amazon and eBay so you can shop with absolute confidence!

May the luck of the Irish be with you!

A Shamrock Plant Is A Wonderful Extra Gift! - She Can Enjoy It For Years To Come!

If you stop by your local grocery store on the way to your party, you will undoubtedly find an assortment of Shamrock (Oxalis) plants available in the floral department just before St. Patrick's Day. These cheerful little plants, whose leaves are shaped like clovers, grow from bulbs. They come in several colors - the pretty purple shown here, and a green version are the most commonly found. The older a plant is, the deeper the purple color will become.

Now here's something lots of people don't know! Lots of people think they have killed their Shamrock Plant when all the leaves die. Not true! They will periodically die down, then spring up and re-grow an entire new plant. Just keep watering it as usual, and be patient! When my Shamrock plant dies down, I'll typically just bury the whole pot of dirt into a container with other plants, as shown in this photo. Later on, it will pop up and bloom again.

Be sure to give your new shamrock plant a drink right away! (Water, that is:)
