St. Patrick’s Day gifts from the little leprechaun are a simple way to add some magic on March 17. Here’s some fun and easy gift ideas!
St. Patrick’s Day Gifts From the Little Leprechaun
If you’re lucky, the little leprechaun will make a visit to your house to bring some St. Patrick’s Day gifts.
In our house, our children look forward to waking up on March 17th to see if the leprechaun has visited. In all honesty, I’m not one to stress myself out or spend hours and hours setting something up, so as always, these ideas are quick and easy along with these favorite St. Patrick’s Day traditions.
Favorite St. Patrick’s Day Traditions
- Eating Lucky Charms or green pancakes for breakfast (see the end of the post for a fun way to make it extra special!)
- Making Green Mean Machines, the perfect pinch-proof potion
- Having a St. Patrick’s Day family-friendly dinner (that’s not corned beef)
- Eating Leprechaun’s favorite treat for a family movie night
- Having a family home evening lesson all about St. Patrick!
But if you ask my children their favorite tradition, they will tell you that finding gifts from the Little Leprechaun is their favorite!
St. Patrick’s Day Gifts from the Little Leprechaun
Before you get stressed out thinking “Oh, no! Not another gift holiday!”, just know that there are so many ways to do gifts from the little leprechaun. Remember our goal is to make life festive simply.
For that reason, if the leprechaun brings a gift, it’s something inexpensive and useful. I think it’s a great time to surprise the kids with some new art supplies since my children love to do all art all day long!
We’ve also done rainbow-colored kids cups and bowls.

Pot of Gold St. Patrick’s Day Gift
If you want to go with a “gold” gift, leave chocolate coins or gold-wrapped Rolos! Package them up in a cute mini pot, treasure box (like below) or just scatter them on the table or around the house.
I created these cute treasure boxes with die-cuts from a craft store and filled them gold for my family! So simple, but festive! Or you could use mini gold pots.

Dyed Milk From the Leprechaun
My children love waking up to find that a leprechaun has turned the milk green!
That leprechaun must know that children love eating their Lucky Charms, a once a year tradition, with colored milk!
I hope these simple St. Patrick’s Day gifts ideas will inspire you to create a little extra excitement at your house!
