Top 7 Good Luck Gifts for St. Patrick's Day
By Creative Irish Gifts
Perhaps it all began with America's Gold Rush era of the late 1800s, when the words "luck of the Irish" were uttered about the lucky Irish Americans who discovered pots of gold.
Perhaps it all began with much earlier stories and folklore about the luck of leprechauns known to successfully hide their pots of gold at the ends of rainbows.
What our experts on all things Irish at Creative Irish Gifts know for certain is that there are hundreds of ways to express a good luck wish with a decidedly Irish accent - especially for St. Patrick's Day. Because seven is a lucky number, here is our Top 7 list of good luck gifts for St. Patrick's Day:
