Savvy Irish Gift Idea

Pin It

Are you looking to bring an Irish smile to someone’s face on Saint Patrick’s Day? Give them a cup of good luck! I picked up this adorable Shamrock plant at my local nursery this week and replanted it in a teacup—it is two gifts in one.

The Shamrock is the national plant of Ireland. Saint Patrick used shamrock leaves to teach pagans about the trinity: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit. People wear shamrocks on March 17th in honor of Saint Patrick.

The word shamrock comes from the Irish Gaelic word Seamrog that means summer plant. Lucky clover, or oxalis house plants, are sold at stores in early March, as the symbol of Saint Patrick’s Day. They clean the air, add beautiful green color accents to home decor, and help create a pleasant, relaxing and healthy home environment.
