Irish Wedding Gift Idea #1:  Irish Linen

Fine Irish linens top our list of suggestions for Irish wedding gifts. The reason is the craftsmanship.

Dedicated cottage crafters apply their skills to handspun flax to create a wide range of stunning Irish linens, each handmade, each different from the other.

One option is table decor. Gracing their table with an Irish linen tablecloth and matching linen napkins for get-togethers with family and friends could become a new family tradition for the happy couple.

Another is bed linen. A set of soft, lustrous Irish linen bed sheets and pillowcases could give their bed a touch of much-appreciated luxury.

And, because Irish linens are durable, they can be passed down from generation to generation – the creation of another new family tradition!

Irish Wedding Gift Idea #2:  Irish Breakfast Basket

Irish Wedding Gift Idea #4:  Matching Aran Sweaters

There is perhaps no one item that sums up Irish culture and history as well as an Aran sweater.

With unique stitching and water-resistant wool perfect for those misty days on the Emerald Isle, an Aran sweater transports you to Ireland even if you're just bundled up in an air-conditioned office.

For the bride and groom, gift a matching set of Aran sweaters.

Choose a cable-knit variety with pockets for the stylish bride, and snag an Irish fisherman's ribbed sweater for the groom.
