The other morning I stopped in McDonald’s for a coffee and saw a sign that I know will make loads of people happy. Yep, the Shamrock Shake is coming back. The unofficial arbiter of St. Patrick’s Day has arrived!
Now despite the fact that I have a son name Ryan Logan, it may surprise you to learn that I am not actually Irish. Nope, not one bit. My wife does love Lucky Charms cereal, though, and I take great pride in knowing that Jennifer Aniston’s first feature film was the horrific horror movie Leprechaun. But that’s about as far as my Irish luck runs.
That doesn’t mean I’m not a big fan of St. Patrick’s Day. Who doesn’t love Irish Soda Bread and green beer? Well, maybe not so much together, that is. I’d like to think that if my family was Irish, we’d be decorating the house like mad with four-leaf clovers, leprechauns, rainbows, pots of gold and shillelaghs up the wazoo.
Apparently some people go to much higher (and way classier) levels, though. If you’re looking to celebrate your own Irish heritage or want to share the shamrock-love with some friends, you can’t get much more elegant than Waterford.
Uh, Waterford? The super fancy, nice crystal Waterford?
Yep, that Waterford.
These guys actually have some amazingly gorgeous items for sale that are bound to make even the luckiest of leprechauns green with envy. As I said, I’m not Irish, but even I’d love to have some of these in my house!
I previously wrote about my love of Waterford’s cocktail glasses (those highballs are just awe-inspiring), and now you can get a variety of them engraved with a 4-Leaf Clover and any name you choose. (I’m thinking O’Kardon has a nice ring to it, don’t ya think?) Take a look at some of these engravable gifts!

There’s just something extra classy about having your names etched into glass isn’t there? Note, If you’re looking to purchase some special engraved items, be sure to order by February 28, 2014 at 11 a.m. EST if you want to get them in time for St. Patrick’s Day!
Now, if it’s green ye be wanting (don’t ask why I suddenly sound like a pirate…), Waterford certainly has you covered too! These colored crystal gifts are spot-on for St. Patrick’s Day gifts, but they’re also striking enough to use all year round.
