Men are not always easy to shop for, but if he loves Ireland, it is easy to find an Irish gift he’ll love. Whether this is your first Christmas together or your 50th, a Celtic keepsake can be the perfect present to say how you feel about having the gift of his presence in your life. Here are our top six recommendations for Irish Christmas gifts for him.
Irish jewelry for men is a great way for him to wear his passion for this island every day. A signet ring, a leather bracelet or a Celtic cross necklace could become a signature part of his personal style. And the symbolism on Celtic jewelry is very romantic. The Claddagh motif has roots in a love story that should be a film. Entwined Celtic knotwork represents two souls whose lives are woven together.
When the weather outside is frightful, a fire isn’t the only thing that’s delightful. You can also wrap him warmly in a classic Aran knit sweater. You can’t go wrong with a traditional pullover in cream, but you can also opt for a colorful cardigan if that’s more his style.
Our ancestors would be dazzled by the number of photos we all take now with our phone cameras, and it’s a shame to leave those lovely memories locked in the phone. Why not print out some snaps of your favorite moments together and give them to him in beautiful picture frames? Would he prefer crystal or Belleek?
Whether this is your first year celebrating together or the first year the kids are old enough for you to enjoy some more elegant (and fragile) decorations, an Irish Christmas tree bauble is a present he’ll enjoy opening every year. Belleek produces a stunning range of Christmas ornaments, or you can choose one that says ‘Nollaig Shona’ (Merry Christmas in Irish) or features his initial in an ornate Celtic script.
Tell him how much you love spending time together with a stunning pocket watch featuring a meaningful Irish motif. The Claddagh or Celtic knots symbolize love and connection, and a pewter pocket watch engraved with these designs is a statement piece he’ll be proud to own.
Toast your relationship with a set of gorgeous Irish crystal glasses – or a pair of pint glasses! Irish glassware is a practical present that adds some beauty to his life every day whether its cut crystal or a Guinness glass. He’ll love using these Irish gifts for a romantic dinner or a cozy night by the fire.
It can be a challenge to find a romantic Christmas gift for him, but these six options are sure to touch his heart. He can buy his own socks, boxers and sports accessories. But these are things he’s less likely to buy for himself. Coming from you, his beloved, these romantic Irish gifts will carry real meaning and make an impact. The look on his face Christmas day will be priceless!
