For the Homebody: Peat Briquettes and an Aran Wool Blanket
Ahhh... the smell of the smoke coming from a turf fire in an old Irish pub...there's nothing quite like the aroma of peat to bring back warm memories of Ireland. In the past, Irish people used turf (peat) to heat their homes and cook their food. It was harvested from a bog. Burning one of these briquettes will fill a room with the unforgettable smell.
For Her: Claddagh Jewelry
The Claddagh represents love, loyalty, and friendship. Whether she’s your best friend or your future wife, a piece of Claddagh jewelry is a lovely Irish gift. The Claddagh ring is the most traditional form and is usually given as an engagement ring, but it doesn’t have to be that serious.
For the Musician: An Irish Instrument
Music is the heartbeat Ireland. If your lucky, you’ve heard it sung by buskers on the streets of Galway. What better gift for the Irish music lover than an Irish instrument? A great option is the Bodhran (an Irish drum).
For the Chef: An Irish Cookbook
If music is the heartbeat of Ireland, then their food is the soul. Traditionally, it’s hearty and grounding. It warms from the inside out. So for the budding Irish chef in your life, give the gift of food – that they have to cook themselves...and maybe you’ll get an invite to dinner!
