Saint Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, and whether it’s a big celebration day for you or not, we at Goodly look at March 17th as a wonderful excuse to wear the color green!
But why green on this particular day? We’re so glad you asked! See, legend has it that wearing green makes a person invisible to leprechauns. Also, according to legend, leprechauns like to pinch people. So not wearing green leaves you vulnerable to leprechaun pinches.
Personally, we’re giving the whole “leprechauns like to pinch people” the side eye, but why leave anything to chance? Even if you like to live dangerously, green is a fantastic color. We’ve got tons of unique and useful green items to add into your daily life!
Unbreakable Silicone Tumblers
These luxe wine tumblers are made from food grade silicone and available in multiple colors, but we’re huge fans of the lovely green color combo above. We hear that in order to hide from humans, leprechauns live in places like hollow tree trunks. If you’ve got a picnic planned on March 17th (we know, it's still winter in a most of the world - work with us here), make sure to take along the green tumblers!
Day Off Tumbler
Also available in multiple colors, you’ll find you’ll want to carry this lovely green tumbler beyond St. Patrick’s Day! We love the handy handle on this 17-oz insulated drink holder. Made of stainless steel and BPA-free silicone, this fun tumbler is great for hot or cold drinks: each will stay that way for 6 hours! So it’s perfect for a day off adventure of looking for leprechauns, or maybe just helping get you through a work day.
Leuchtturm Soft Cover Notebook
Similar to the hardcover version, but thinner and more malleable, this venerable blank journal is perfect for just about anything: journaling, list-making, organizing your day or (maybe) your life. We know, that’s a big ask, but if any blank book is up to the task, it’s from Leuchtturm. The green color will blend right in on St. Patrick’s Day, but we think you’ll want to use this handy book year-round.
Porcelain Enamel Cup
Another one of our fabulous gift items that’s available in multiple colors! This high-quality porcelain enamel-covered steel mug is kinda indestructible — it’s shatterproof and super lightweight — and holding one will definitely keep you from getting pinched! Even if you’re not much of a camper, you’ll want to add some rustic charm to your kitchen with this cool 12-oz mug!
Hammond's Sour Balls Hard Candies
You’re not likely to carry around a green tin of handmade hard candies just to ward off getting pinched by a leprechaun (especially since we're told leprechauns like to eat nuts and mushrooms), but plopping this cute tin on your desk will surely protect your office space, right? A great gift for hard candy lovers, these yummy sour balls also have a sweet side to them! And the bright green reusable tin is perfect for display year-round, but especially on March 17th.
Now, in case you want to be literal (which means you… believe in leprechauns? We won’t judge) about your green, make sure to check out our sock selection. We’ve got tons of green options, as well as other funny, colorful and adventurous socks you’ll love!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone!
