Happy Valentine's Day from Ireland
Valentine's Day Gift Ideas from the Emerald Isle
By Creative Irish Gifts
Add a touch of love and luck exclusively from Ireland this Valentine's Day with a keepsake gift incorporating a traditional Irish symbol of love and friendship from Creative Irish Gifts.
Ireland celebrates Valentine's Day with handmade gifts and cards. Dublin is home to the Shrine of Saint Valentine, located at Whitefriar Street Church in the capital of the Republic of Ireland.
Classic symbols of love from Ireland include the Celtic trinity knot and claddagh rings.
Claddagh rings, designed with a heart for love, a crown above the heart for loyalty, and two hands holding the heart for friendship. Heart shapes on jewelry, fabrics, pottery or art are universal symbols of love and St. Valentine's Day.
Valentine Gifts Made in Ireland
Make a country beloved by Irish-Americans your source for unique Valentine's Day gifts this year. At Creative Irish Gifts, you'll find
A combination of Irish symbolism and the universal symbol for love creates our Made in Ireland Trinity Knot jewelry with a heart at the center on a unique design incorporating a Connemara Marble heart at the center of a sterling silver trinity knot on a sterling silver chain.
We carry traditional claddagh rings and contemporary jewelry designs of cherubs, hearts and Irish trinity knots.
For a unique Valentine's Day gift from Ireland, consider an inexpensive claddagh wrist bracelet in pewter instead of the classic ring.
Because we believe everything made in Ireland is made with love, create new Valentine's Day gift-giving traditions by exchanging gifts of Aran sweaters, Irish scarves, tea cups, tea tins, garden décor or Galway crystal.
Irish Gifts of Love and Friendship
Add a touch of the Emerald Isle to your Valentine's Day celebrations with gifts incorporating love, friendship and laughter. A love of things beautiful can translate into a gift of heirloom Belleek porcelain table ware embossed with traditional Irish claddagh designs of hearts, hands and crowns.
An Irish teddy bear can be a lovely gift for a child or an adult friend who needs a hug. Choose a lovely Celtic designs hair clip in pewter for her, or a classic Irish Kerry cap for him. If you're presenting traditional Valentine's Day cards with your unique Valentines from Ireland, add shamrock stickers to the cards or envelopes.
Keepsake trays, figurines and garden stones can convey love without the mushy stuff for good friends.
One favorite that we think would win approval from St. Valentine is our Love Everyone trinket tray embossed with shamrock art and the words: "Love everyone. I'll sort them out later. - God."
Or, how about a fun alternative to a typical Valentine's Day card - an Irish Lassie tea towel that's embroidered with the words Smart & Sassy Irish Lassie.
An inexpensive gift that will delight a good friend or family member is our friendship keychain with Irish shamrock and other friendship-theme accents.
