Stylish St Patrick’s Day Gifts

Embracing tradition doesn’t have to be twee. Here are four?gorgeous St Patrick’s Day gifts perfect for the design conscious women in your world.

This elegant square silk scarf from Irish designer Susannagh Grogan cleverly takes the colours of the flag and layers them with tonal shades for a look that’s distinctly Irish without being too in your face. Tie it round your neck, or to the handle of your shopper.

Silk print ribbon neck scarf, €130 at Susannagh Grogan

MoMuse in the Powerscourt Town Centre is one of my favourite jewellery brands.?These elegant rose gold and emerald rings are perfect for anyone celebrating a special occasion on St Patrick’s Day.

Rose gold single emerald ring (top), €285; rose gold multi emerald ring (bottom), €850; both at MoMuse

It may be March, but a pair of gloves won’t go astray at the parade today. These exquisite lambskin leather gloves with cashmere lining will keep you warm, elevate your outfit, and in this unusual shade of chartreuse, will nod to our national colour without looking?too obvious.

Rosario lambskin leather gloves, €140 at Paula Rowan

Forget the traditional cluster of shamrock on your collar, and rock this gorgeous textured green bag instead. Created by Irish designer Emma Manley, it’s made of clusters of tiny leather bows held in place with silver studs. It can be worn crossbody so it’s perfect for a day at the parade as it leaves you hands-free to juggle green candy floss and children with sticky hands.

Lana leather bag, €115 at Emma Manley
