The word “Celt” comes from the Greek word “keltoi”. Many early references to “Keltoi" pertain to several Central-European tribal cultures that shared a common language base. This ancient language base eventually became some of the Gaelic/Celtic languages. In the later part of the Iron Age, these tribal cultures expanded over what is now Europe; as far west as Ireland and the Iberian Peninsula, as far east as Galicia, and as far north as Scotland.
By modern definition, the Celtic nations are: Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Isle of Man, Brittany (a region in northern France), and Galicia (a region in Spain). Celtic gifts are very popular with people whose heritage originates from these countries.
Celtic symbols have never gone out of style, and Celtic gifts are more popular than ever! Formal Scottish kilts are stylish choices for weddings, proms, and other special occasions. Irish claddagh rings - a design dating back to the 16th century - are still popular to give as engagement or promise rings. Spirals, knots, and stylized animals - universal Celtic symbols - can be found in modern artwork, t-shirts, jewelry, and housewares. All kinds of Celtic gifts - from coffee mugs to diamond rings - can be found decorated with Celtic style.
At Things Celtic, we enjoy helping our customers find just the right Celtic gift.
