Only a chosen few have mastered the art of gift-giving and if you aren’t part of the club, don’t worry, there is hope for you. All it takes is knowing the person you want to gift. That doesn’t mean you have to unearth their “hidden desires”, but it helps to have some idea of their likes and dislikes. Hopefully you’ve paid attention to the person you want to give a St. Patrick’s Day gift to, because they have likely talked about things they want. Then if you do end up gifting them one of those things, it’ll show that you care enough to listen to and remember their words.
However, things can get tricky when people are not direct about their likes and dislikes. Not everyone is forward enough to say: “If the Cleveland Browns ever make it to the Superbowl, I want tickets!” First of all, even if the person who said that was immortal, those tickets may very well never come into existence. But even though some people are not that direct, they do tend to give clues about what they like. You just have to be observant enough to pick up on those clues.
So, if you know the person you want to gift is a sports fan, get them tickets when their favourite team is playing. You can also consider gifting them the Carlsberg Game Day Snack Basket, which is perfect for a night of watching the game with friends, with enough beer and munchies for everyone. If the team they support is playing on St. Patrick’s Day and happens to lose, this gift basket will console them better than anything or anyone else, thus salvaging a little good this St. Patrick’s Day.
Gift-giving is also dependent on the occasion. In the case of St. Patrick’s Day, even if you aren’t exactly sure what they like, just go with something green that has leprechauns on it. Or you can browse through our St. Patrick’s Day Gift Basket collections! You can be sure that one of our gift baskets will have you covered.
The Chocolate Apple & Cider Crate is perfect for your best friend or sibling.

For example, the next time you go on an outing, put some snacks in the crate to take with you!
