St. Patrick’s Day has always been a special day for me, because it’s also my birthday! That’s why, at this point, I’m an expert on St. Patrick’s Day giveaways. One might think it is fun to share a birthday with a holiday, but the sad truth is that my big day often gets overshadowed.
By no means am I complaining, but let’s face it: People love celebrating their Irish pride on St. Patrick’s Day, my own family included. (My maiden name is Fitzpatrick and my married name is O’Shea — you do the math.)
But I digress. Below are the items I have seen quite frequently in my wonderful, almost-30 years of celebrating my birthday and St. Paddy’s Day!
Why should chocolate be reserved for Valentine’s Day? The decadent treat makes a great giveaway any time of the year. Whether you’re at an office, bar or school, everyone likes free food! I love our St. Patrick’s window box chocolate shamrocks. The box offers a full digital imprint on the outside, and the chocolates are delicious.
Let’s be honest: St. Patrick’s day is a big day for drinking. Countless parades, bar crawls and shenanigans take place every March 17th. Why not stock your bar or restaurant with custom shaped shamrock coasters to match the theme? Kids love coloring on these coasters too, making them ideal for a St. Patrick’s Day school project. Most importantly, they prevent water stains on wooden surfaces.
3. Eco-friendly products
Just because St. Patrick’s Day is a day for jubilations, doesn’t mean you can’t also be eco-friendly. Motivators’ very lucky four leaf clover ornament makes a wonderful giveaway. It is made out of seed paper, which is constructed from natural, biodegradable and recycled fibers. And once you no longer want to use is as a decoration, you can plant it and keep it as a reminder of a fun St. Paddy’s Day! Give this out at your store to delight customers this St. Patrick’s Day.
So with that, enjoy March 17th safely and responsibly! For more tips on promoting your business or event with St. Patrick’s Day giveaways, dial 800-525-9600 and ask to speak with a promotional consultant.
