St. Patrick’s Day this year won’t see us joining together for parades and festivities, but we will still celebrate the day with our own households as it’s an important day for our culture and heritage. It’s also important to remember our Irish friends and families abroad who are missing home this St. Patrick’s Day. Newbridge Silverware, the Irish lifestyle company synonymous with all things stylish has lots of beautiful jewellery and homeware products which would be ideal St. Patrick’s Day gifts and help bring home a little closer.
The ‘Romance of Ireland’ range includes a myriad of Irish inspired book markers, hanging decorations and souvenir spoons. Each piece has been meticulously crafted to incorporate the essence of Ireland’s most notable landmarks. From the splendid Georgian doors of Dublin and the nostalgia of the Irish cottage to the majestic setting of Glendalough and the symbolism of the St. Brigid’s cross. This collection includes timeless keepsakes and pieces and are presented in a beautiful gift box such as the Romance of Ireland hanging Shamrock (€25).
The Claddagh Ring is making a big comeback and the humble Irish Claddagh ring has accumulated some well-known admirers.
