There is something about Ireland that makes everyone fall instantly head over heels. For some, it’s the accent. For others, the Irish humor is what sets the pulse racing. Or maybe what melts your heart is the taste of a freshly brewed cup of tea, or the unmistakable smell of a turf fire in winter. While we still can’t travel to Ireland, we can recreate that Irish feel at home, with these Irish holiday gifts to remind us of the Emerald Isle.
While we can’t travel to Ireland this year, we can bring some of that Irish spirit home with us.

2020 has been a year, so it’s no wonder comfort-fashion is in style. Aran sweaters, originally worn by Ireland’s island fishermen used to be made of unwashed sheep’s wool, which made them waterproof. These days, the wool is squeaky clean, and the sweaters’ knit patterns and cozy elegance have made them a favorite with everyone from Marilyn Monroe to, more recently, Taylor Swift in the promo for 2020’s best-selling album Folklore.
This “My Lovely Horse” T-shirt is the perfect gift for fans of Father Ted.
