The shamrock has a significant history with the Irish nation that makes it a symbol of deep meaning and much more than a good luck charm. Ancient Celts revered the flower not only because its three heart-shaped leaves reflected the sanctity of the number three in Celtic culture, but also because they believed that the shamrock could ward off bad spirits and cure illnesses. When Ireland was under oppressive British rule during the 19th century, British monarch Queen Victoria outlawed the wearing of shamrock flowers in an effort to crush Irish rebellion. This law, however, only fueled the Irish, driving them to make the shamrock an even greater symbol of strength for their country. Ireland has deep-rooted Celtic origins that the Irish still honors to this very day with Celtic artwork displayed in all kinds of items like drinking ware, dining ware, and more that show off beautifully replicated Celtic symbols.
Intricate Celtic Knot Gifts
Common Celtic symbols include Celtic Knots, which feature intricate and infinite loops, curves, and elaborate patterns that symbolize the eternal love that ancient Celts shared with loved ones. Celtic Knot variations like the Trinity Knot had a variety of meanings in Celtic life, as its three corners and three infinite loops signified the number three, which was sacred to Celts. Lovely items like candle holders also feature ornate renditions of the Celtic Cross. The four limbs of the Celtic Cross were commonly used to symbolize four-part systems in Celtic life, like the four cardinal directions of north, south, east, and west. The signature halo of the cross symbolized unification and wholeness.
Traditional Irish Harp Gifts
Another beloved symbol of the Emerald Isle is the Irish harp. The history of the Irish harp actually goes back at least 1,000 years to Celtic civilization, and it was also known as the Gaelic harp. The harp was revered in Celtic culture as an instrument that was played to accompany the singing of psalms and recitations of poetry. Today, the Irish harp is seen in many places in Irish life such as coins and the presidential seal. It is wonderfully recreated among fine Shamrock Gift Company items like festive shot glasses or decorations:

Classic Claddagh Gifts
One celebrated icon of Irish history that has been embraced throughout the world as a universal symbol of love, loyalty, and friendship is the Claddagh emblem. The Claddagh emblem came from the fishing village named Claddagh in Galway, Ireland in the 17th century. One legend claims that an Irishman by the name of Richard Joyce created the first Claddagh in a ring design to honor his beloved who faithfully waited for his return to Ireland after being held in captivity for several years in a distant land. The Claddagh consists of two hands representing friendship, and they unite to hold a heart signifying love. On top of the heart is a crown symbolizing loyalty.
Though these Shamrock Gift Company souvenirs are created with exquisite designs and festive flair, they are also rich with tremendous meaning, history, and Irish pride!
