Bamboo shoots - a good luck symbol

 

Is there anyone in the world who would not wish for good luck if you or someone could give it to them? Probably not, well maybe one or two diehards, that don’t believe in good luck, would not take you up on that offer. In fact, I don’t know anyone who would refuse good luck if it could be offered to them. Good luck is called different things sometimes, and can have different meanings to different people.

What is considered good luck can also depend on the country and its customs.

Some call luck destiny, while others consider it a miracle. Some people don’t really think there is such a thing as luck and whether they call it destiny, say things or events are preordained, or have other explanations of it, an argument can be made that some unknown force could be at play to explain what we consider “luck”, either good or bad.

Having an ‘edge’ over others is what some consider good luck. Someone who just seems to have everything go their way, even without trying, a person that wins a big lottery of hundreds of millions of dollars who bought a single ticket to surprise his wife, a person diagnosed with terminal cancer living 50 more years with no medical intervention – all these highly unusual situations are instances of good luck, that befall some people, while others people crave for such good luck but never get it.

 

 

Good luck charms and potions have been in existence since the beginning of mankind. It crosses all cultures, races, and religions. We associate certain things with bringing good luck and let’s not forget, the same symbol can also mean bad luck to others. Regardless, for almost any occasion, good luck gifts make ideal gifts to present to family and friends. It shows your love and that you care for the person.

If the gift is not necessarily associated with good luck, you might give them a card with it and write how it is a symbol of good luck with a paragraph or two of the history behind it. That should really arouse their interest. They will likely appreciate the gift even more.

In times of prosperity friends will be plenty, in times of adversity not one in twenty.

Here are four good luck gift ideas to get you started:

  1. Buy lucky stones from jewelry stores and have them mounted as rings or chains. Check the stones for authenticity before purchasing. Pick the nicest, most beautiful, or most unique stones you can find. The stones are a symbol of good luck so pick the best ones to represent it.
  2. Gift a bamboo tree. These are ornamental good luck gifts. They are kept in living rooms, family rooms, or kitchens. Since it is wood, it brings vitality, energy, peace, and revitalizes life. These trees can last years with proper care, so be sure to provide instructions of how to care for the tree.
  3. Present a crystal for good luck. Not just any crystal, but an exceptional looking crystal. Find one with beautiful clarity and color. Crystals are considered to possess elemental powers and they are said to inspire positive forces in the environment they are kept in.
  4. The color and inscription of Chinese Jade make them a good luck charm. Many people already associate jade jewelry with good luck so a beautiful jade accessory can make an excellent good luck gift. Don’t skimp on the cost and make sure it’s real jade. If it’s in a setting, such as a bracelet or pendant, make sure the setting is high quality.

Any of these can make excellent good luck gifts. When giving good luck gifts be sure you tell or write something of the history behind the good luck tradition. A nice hand printed card can do wonders, and shows you really care, After all, how often do you see anything hand written anymore. It’s rare to even get a written letter nowadays. Handwriting is a nice personal touch and is just the touch for good luck.

Search for that one-of-a kind gift that symbolizes good luck. It’s a wonderful thought, and a great way to shower a bit of good luck on a loved one or very special friend. Who knows, it might well bring you good luck too!
