Tiny St. Patrick's Day Gifts for Leprechauns

St. Patricks Day is a big to-do around our house. Not that we’re Irish or any­thing, though my third child’s name is Mur­phy (named after my brother, who was named after a great Aunt’s hus­band that was indeed Irish).

I’ve always told my lit­tle Mur­phy that he was half lep­rechaun and that St. Patrick’s Day is when every­one cel­e­brates the tiny keep­ers of gold like him­self. So every year, we leave gifts for his lep­rechaun half-brothers. They’re very tiny, so the gifts have to be tiny, too!

What makes the per­fect gift for a lep­rechaun? Gold, of course, so this year we packed our gifts with gold glit­ter. They also love any­thing to do with rain­bows and it never hurts to add a healthy dose of candy. We typ­i­cally leave the gifts on the kitchen table and we usu­ally find some­thing mag­i­cal that the lep­rechauns leave behind…

The only way to know if a lep­rechaun lives on your side of town is to sur­prise him on St. Patrick’s Day with a small token of your appre­ci­a­tion. Leave a tiny gift or hand­writ­ten note and watch the excite­ment in your lit­tle one’s eyes when the lucky lep­rechaun pays a visit!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
