17 St. Patrick’s Day Care Package Ideas


St. Patrick’s Day has always been a favorite holiday of mine. (Which is probably strange for a girl who has absolutely 0% Irish heritage in her DNA.) When I was in high school, my marching band actually marched in the Dublin St. Patrick’s Day. We marched in the rain. Then we toured the country and saw some of the most beautiful countryside I’ve ever seen in my life. I definitely fell in love with the Emerald Isle. 15 years later, I had the chance to spend two more days in Dublin as an adult. It. Was. Amazing.

Sending St. Patrick’s Day care packages can be a little tough, especially if your loved one is stationed in a dry country where the posting of alcohol isn’t just frowned on, it is banned. There are work-arounds, of course, but if you ask me, don’t do anything that would get your service member in trouble. It’s not fair to them and it certainly isn’t a good look for you, either.

I’ve pulled together a bunch of top-notch resources to help you plan fantastic St. Patrick’s Day care package for your loved one:

Gifts & Recipes

Okay, you’ve got your care package theme. Now to fill it! Here are a bunch of lovely gift ideas and recipes that you can make up and throw in the box. If you’ve got kids, you can include them in creating a bunch of these, especially the treat bags. (You might have to keep a few treat bags back for them… and for yourself, though!)

While St. Patrick’s Day does not have the same amount of parcel and mail traffic that other holidays like Christmas or Valentine’s Day do, you’ll still want to get your package to the mail at least three-to-four weeks before the holiday if you’re shipping overseas. Of course, if you’ve sent other packages and know approximate mailing times, that helps too. After all, post office shipping guidelines are just that–guidelines. They can be faster or slower depending on where your loved one is deployed, what time of the year it is, and if there are any international incidents that occur.
