Irish Ornaments for a Lucky Christmas Celebration
You don't have to be a leprechaun to love these Irish ornaments. Celebrate your Irish heritage with beautiful and affordable Christmas ornaments.
Irish eyes will be smiling when you give your buddies an Irish ornament for Christmas. It's a great pick-me-up gift for friends who are going through hard times. If you've got a friend who's lost their job or had their hours cut, give some emotional support with a whimsical leprechaun ornament. Attach a note saying you know that they'll find their pot of gold soon. Emotional support with a touch of humor is a good way to help keep up peoples' spirits in hard times.
Leprechaun and Irish good luck symbols are very popular with the family members and friends I know that like to hit the casinos and bingo parlors. So Irish ornaments are always welcome stocking stuffers. Irish culture is thousands of years old -the city of Dublin is over 1,000 years old itself - and it has a great deal of mystical or Celtic lore attached to it. So it's no wonder that they have wonderful imagery like rainbows, leprechauns and pots filled with gold.

From three of the most respected names in decorative collectibles - Waterford, Kurt Adler, and Lenox - three beautiful shamrock ornaments.
I love wrapping Christmas presents in unique ways. A Christmas ornament is a great way to make a gift sparkle. Sometimes I relate the ornament to the gift as to give a hint. But other times I use it to throw the gift recipient off the track and truly suprise them.
You can also use shamrock ornaments and other Christmas ornaments as dinner place settings for your Holiday gatherings. I love to put an ornament by each place and leave the name blank. Then I ask the dinner guests to decide which ornament matches the personality of each guest and choose where they should sit. This inspires all kinds of conversation and storytelling.
As you can see to the right a shamrock ornament doesn't always have to be green. While the Kurt Adler shamrock ornament is a beautiful green glass, the Waterford shamrock ornament is a stunning clear crystal glass. The Lenox shamrock ornament is a high-quality white china with 24K gold accents.
Of course put them on your Christmas tree, but take them out again a few months later for St. Patricks day and let your imagination wander. A front door wreath embellished with these ornaments would be the perfect way to greet your guests as they come by for your annual corned beef and cabbage dinner.

If you chose claddagh wedding rings then you'll definitely love adding a claddagh ornament. An Irish cross with a blessing is a touching sentiment. And just be proud to be Irish with an Irish flag!
I love the traditional woodcut ornaments shown to the right. Not only do they portray traditional Irish values, they will add a timeless feel to your Christmas tree. If you're trying to make your tree look like you've been collecting Christmas ornaments for decades - or even have inherited family heirlooms that are generations old - then be sure to include some wood ornaments on your tree! From flying snowmen and Santas to Irish dancers, you'll love these Irish-themed ornaments. While these will look great on a traditional green Christmas tree, a table-top Christmas tree will really show them off!
