Claddagh Heart Symbol

The Claddagh symbol is an Irish tradition. The hands on the symbol represent friendship, the heart represents love and the crown means loyalty. Originally only seen on rings, the symbol is common now on throws, pillow, bedding and in artwork. A gift with this symbol on it is sure to be a cherished wedding gift.

Belleek Pottery

Belleek pottery is available as gifts ranging from the tiniest Christmas ornaments to large ornamental bowls for home decor. Newlyweds often combine household decor and furnishings but enjoy having possessions that remind them of the day of their unity. Special Christmas ornaments are a thoughtful way to begin their collection of tree-trimming accessories as a married couple. They may not be able to afford any cherished ornaments the first year or two of their marriage. When they unwrap the ornament each year, they will delight in your thoughtfulness and remember their wedding day. Decor such as large bowls and other decorative pottery will help to fill their home with joint possessions instead of those from the bachelor or bachelorette days. The presence of the cherished decor will remind them of the wedding and the emotions they felt during this day. Belleek is known for its elegant pottery, which you can find in fine gift stores.

Waterford Crystal

Waterford Crystal began production in 1783 in Waterford, Ireland. The crystal items vary from picture frames, vases, ashtrays to stemware, which are traditional wedding registry items. This is an effective way to begin a collection of crystal with an Irish history for the newlywed couple. You can find pieces of Waterford crystal at fine department and gift stores.

Shamrock Symbol

A shamrock plant is a lovely wedding gift for the couple. It will give their house a homey, outdoor look, but that isn't your only option. The symbol is present on stemware, dinnerware, throws, framed items and many other types of decor. It is a traditional symbol of luck, and the bride and groom will treasure it as a symbol of their Irish heritage.
