Okay, so we can't promise to make you more Irish. We actually can't promise to make you Irish at all. But, for St. Patrick's Day we can help you get into the spirit and become the shamrock-adorned, dancing leprechaun we know you want to be, without spending a ton doing so.
Here are 9 stores that help you get more green for less green:
If their name doesn't tell you, then we will. Whether you're looking for jewelry, apparel, even food or a Guinness Tankard, ShopIrish.com has it. Nothing says "Erin Go Bragh" like authentic Irish turf you can burn in the fireplace for the scent of the Irish countryside. Seriously, they have that! Plus, you can get free shipping on any order with coupon code CTEST2 at checkout.
Are you of Irish descent? Do you wish you were? Why not find out the true history behind your surname at Ancestry.com? The 2012 Family Tree Maker is now 25% off or you can get a free 14 day free trial, which allows you access to U.S. Record collections and connect with other Ancestry.com members for tips and tricks to learning about your history.
If World Market isn't already on your go-to list for unique items and gifts, it really should be. Along with home decor, furniture and kitchenware, they've also got a wide variety of foods and beverages from all over the world (hence, World Market). To get in the Irish mood, try the Guinness Bread Mix, Lucky Pasta or Garvey's Irish Organic Soda Bread Mix.
We just can't resist trying to talk you into a trip to Ireland. What better way to explore the countryside than living like a local? HomeAway.com offers vacation rentals to fit all of your needs (and unnecessary wants!) Search for homes in your preferred area, select your preferences then start looking through dozens of available rentals that meet your requirements. If you're going to spend on a hotel anyway, check out HomeAway and you could get an entire home away from home, allowing you to relax in full-size comfort.
Looking for something a little more creative than "Kiss Me I'm Irish"? BustedTees.com has a few ironic shirts for St. Patrick's Day and a huge selection of hilarious shirts for every day. If "Irish I Were Drunk" isn't quite your style, you can always go with a tee featuring Christopher Walken or the Honey Badger and get 10% off your order with code STEEDTUBES.
We decided to embrace the drinking theme and tell you about KegWorks.com. Yes, they do have beer mugs and kegs. They also have beer pong kits, jello shot mixes and a sweet, little gadget called the BrewTender that looks like something everyone needs in their life. Slainte!
Looking to celebrate your Irish heritage? Why not get something to show off your pride and your name. Personal Creations has customizable jewelry, picture frames beer mugs (do we sense a little drinking theme here?), and more. Activate our link to get 25% off your entire order.
If you're throwing a St. Patrick's themed party, look no further than ShinDigZ.com. Create your own beer or wine labels, don yourself in beer mug glasses or a shot glass necklace. They even have an inflatable beer mug cooler to keep your guests' beverages chilled while they partake in whatever boisterous Irish activity you have planned.
No matter your team preference, IceJerseys.com has a selection of sports apparel perfect for any Irish sport fan. Sport a green hockey jersey, a Boston Red Sox St. Patrick's Day Cap or a classic Guinness tee shirt. How you root for your team is up to you, but we can't discourage also sporting some green.
