“13” isn’t an unlucky number after all! Here are 13 St. Patrick’s day gifts and giveaway ideas for your event.

#1: Beer Mugs

Shop: Custom Beer Glasses

Whether your drink of choice is a Guinness or a Murphy’s Irish Stout, you can’t go wrong sipping from a beer mug. Your custom text or design will be engraved or printed in ink right on the front of each glass. Keep this drinkware in stock at your bar year round, or sell the glasses in your gift shop as souvenirs.

#2: Shamrock Stress Toys

Shop: Bulk Stress Balls

Set each table with green tablecloths and shamrock stress toys. The combo will have everyone feeling like they’re in the lush, rolling hills of Ireland! Plus, the stress balls are easy to grab and bring home as favors at the end of the night.

#3: Bamboo Coasters

Shop: Custom Coasters

The Irish love handmade wooden gifts, carved with love from oak, ash, beech, or sycamore. Bring that same charm to your party or bar with wood coasters under every pint. Your logo will really pop if it’s printed in full color on the top of each one.   

#4: Silicone Rainbow Pint Cups

Shop: Silicone Rainbow Cups

Tie-dye is having a moment lately, so give it a whirl at your St. Patrick’s Day celebration! Silicone cups are dishwasher-safe, and even though they’re soft, they’re durable enough to be used indoors and outdoors. Promote your drink specials by offering these psychedelic cups as complimentary souvenirs.

#5: Green Clothing

Shop: Custom Clothing

Embrace your inner leprechaun, and rock a ton of green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day! Give out or sell a ton of merch including sunglasses, t-shirts, hoodies, funky socks, and even foam top hats! Your employees should also be wearing this gear as their uniform for the day.

#6: Wine or Beer Koozies

Shop: Wine Koozies & Beer Koozies

Your drink cans and bottles should be dressed up for the occasion! Deck them out in foam or neoprene koozies. They’ll keep everyone’s hands dry, leaving them free to sing a Dropkick Murphy’s song during karaoke, or drop it low during a limbo competition.

#7: Teddy Bears

Shop: Bulk Teddy Bears

The kids want to have fun, too! Toys and coloring books are great, but if you really want to take it to the next level, hand out personalized stuffed animals at the entrance. The kiddos may just find their new best friend at your St. Patty’s celebration!

#8: Bottle Openers

Shop: Custom Bottle Openers

Do you want cheap favors for your St. Patrick’s Day party? You can’t go wrong with bottle openers! Find a unique, themed shape like beer bottles, mustaches, or smiley faces. You can even attach a note to bottle opener keychains reminding all your patrons to call a Lift or Uber if the festivities get a little out of hand.

#9: Shot Glasses

Shop: Personalized Shot Glasses

Shots are popular drinks for celebrations, so you can expect them to be ordered throughout your bar crawl or party. Why not serve those Irish Car Bombs and Lemon Drops in custom shot glasses? Your logo will really pop against these fun, affordable party favors.

#10: Chocolate Coins & Other Candy

Shop: Custom Candy

Are you hosting a St. Patrick’s Day parade? Win over the crowd by throwing out handfuls of personalized candy. Chocolate coins look like they’re pulled right from the pot at the end of the rainbow, while M&M’s are always a classic. Don’t be shy about also having other snacks for your guests to munch on like cookies and pretzels!

#11: Moscow Mule Mugs

Shop: Custom Copper Mugs

Beer and wine are must-haves at a St. Patrick’s Day celebration, but don’t forget about the mixed drinks! Moscow Mules are a crowd favorite and will sell like crazy if you pour them in souvenir copper mugs. Use an elegant font for your company name, and keep the rest of the design simple. You can order a low quantity of these gifts if you don’t have it in the budget for more.

#12: Beaded Necklaces

Shop: Beaded Necklaces

It may not be Mardi Gras, but beaded necklaces are still fun jewelry to hand out to a crowd. Put them around every person’s neck when they come in, and they’ll immediately know it’s time to party! Order a mix of gold, green, and orange in bulk, and everyone will shimmer and shine at your event.

#13: Hand Sanitizer

Shop: Custom Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizer may not scream “party,” but it still shouldn’t be overlooked! The COVID-19 pandemic is still fresh, and it’s important to stay safe. Hand mini bottles out as party favors or order bulk gallons, so you can have sanitizer in every corner of the room. There’s no such thing as too much hygiene!

Final Thoughts

St. Patrick’s Day giveaways are a great way to hype up the crowd at your party or event. You can use them as prizes for contests or raffles, offer them with a purchase of a drink or food, or simply put them inside of goody bags that all your guests receive. Whatever helps everyone have a good time!

Times are tough, and you probably don’t have too much to spend on company promotional items, giveaways, and favors. However, a little something goes a long way and will help make your St. Patty’s event one to remember!
