And if you’re having more than one celebration, it’s also available in a striped, shamrock pattern. $10


Mid-March can still be chilly, so you’ll want to layer up your little one with this popular muted green crew neck sweatshirt from SweetBloomsStudio printed with a white “Little Lucky Charm” design. Just be sure to order quickly so that it’s delivered in time! $28


If you have a bow-wearing babe, a fun hair accessory like this rainbow-inspired bow from Ruffle Butts (so cute!) is essential. Plus, the attached headband makes it more comfortable for little noggins than a clip-on bow. $14

Your little Mickey Mouse fan will be over the moon—scratch that, over the rainbow!—for Disney Baby’s My First St. Patrick’s Day story. Not only is their favorite character front and center, but there is also a touch-and-feel element that engages their senses as they learn about the beloved Irish holiday. $9

Story Set

Think of the Silly McGilly set as the Irish equivalent of Elf on the Shelf or Mensch on a Bench. The book comes with a plush leprechaun that you don’t want to leave out overnight. After all, nighttime is when Silly McGilly plays his tricks! One Amazon reviewer called it the “best St. Patrick’s story for kids ever!” $28

Nursery Rhyme

The Itsy Bitsy Leprechaun by Jeffrey Burton is just what it sounds like: a charming Irish twist on “The Itsy Bitsy Spider.” We love that it’s read to the tune of a nursery rhyme your wee one already knows. This way, their ears will perk up, and they may even hum along. $6


These lamb stuffed animals from cuddle+kind are not only making kids happy, but they are also keeping them fed. With every purchase of a handknit doll, 10 meals are donated to children in need. Each animal in the collection has a name and a biography your child can embrace; Avery the Lamb was born in a beautiful pasture at sunrise, loves to bleat and sing, and is curious about all new things. From $64


Since they’re still too little to enjoy some traditional Irish corned beef and cabbage, pass them this silicone cabbage teether by Ounona to chew on during mealtime. The handle is easy to grip, and the different textures can help soothe their sore gums. $9


Follow the rainbow to find a pot of gold! Your cutie can snuggle up with this sweet, smiley, and colorful stuffy from Jellycat. Pro tip from happy customers: Parents can also use it as a neck pillow! $28


As we continue the rainbow-loving trend, let’s turn toward this colorful set of stacking cups from KIDSTHRILL. As we said in our list of toys that are great for development, stacking cups have a big impact on little learners, helping them learn how to grasp, release, and control their fingers. $12


This downloadable clover field print from Etsy’s PrintitoffShop can become a precious keepsake in no time. Print the page at home and then break out some washable green paint to stamp your baby’s hand as a sweet memento. At under $4, you might as well buy one for each of their growing hands.
