Cinnamon spice and all things nice, Thanksgiving is just around the corner and it’s the most wonderfully traditional time of the year. You can’t get more traditional than authentic Irish knitwear, and an Aran Sweater is a timeless gift that will never go out of style.
These are the five types of people who will love you forever if you purchase them an Aran Sweater this Thanksgiving. Are you one?
Irish Living Abroad
They say you never feel more Irish than when you live abroad. Ironically, you won’t be able to escape the power of the little island of Éire, as hoards of expats gather at local Irish pubs and GAA clubs. Send them a piece from home this Thanksgiving with a piece of clothing rich in history from The Wild Atlantic Way.
Give A Family Member The Symbol Of Your Clan
Many ancient Irish clans adopted their own uniquely stitched sweater as their ultimate family symbol which was then passed down through the generations. Today, over 130 patterns are available to represent different surnames. Purchasing a relative your family’s representation is a truly thoughtful and meaningful gift.
The Fashionable Twenty-Something
Cosy sweaters are the basic girl’s guide to surviving autumn. Oh and not to mention that Aran Sweaters featured in the August edition of British Vogue. Need we say more!
Paired with dark skinny jeans and brown Chelsea boots, this is an outfit combination that will last for years and years. All she will need is some floating fall foliage to achieve that Instagram ready look!
The Rugged Manly-Man
He’s the strong silent type who sports a beard and exudes just the right amount of hipster. A sweater teamed with tartan shirt and black skinny jeans will be his go-to outfit of choice over the festive season. While if he is a lad of country heritage, an Irish flat cap will go down a treat for those crisp evening walks.
Kit Out The Kids
The kids may not be overly-enthusiastic about being kitted out in matching attire, but we guarantee a set of matching sweaters will just melt every mammy’s heart! Perfect timing too, how adorable would white and red cable knit cardigans look in your family photo for your holiday greeting cards!
