“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”― W. Churchill
Trying to find a gift for your special loved one or a friend? Whether it be for the holidays, a birthday, or anniversary, there are many great feng shui gifts to give. Here are 9 lucky feng shui gift ideas:
One of my favorite feng shui gifts is a gourd called the Wu Lou – a fantastic symbol of great health and longevity. The Wu Lou signifies good luck and prosperity, and comes in all shapes, sizes and materials. I particularly like sharing this gift with those who are sick. It can help subdue the negative energy in their environment that has been generated from illness.
Rose Quartz Hearts
Rose quartz hearts are great gifts to those who are in need of boosting their relationship luck. The crystals bring good chi and energy for attracting and maintaining love relationships. It also contains great healing energy for those who are seeking happiness and mending a broken heart. They should be placed in the southwest.
A calculator dating back to ancient times, the abacus is a great gift for friends and family seeking prosperity, mentor, or career and business luck. Usually made of brass, it can be placed in the direction of the life aspiration the recipient would like most to achieve (e.g. north for career).
Portrait of Mountains
I absolutely love nature. Being in it is one of the best ways to boost one’s personal chi whether it be from hiking, bicycling, or other active sport. I especially love bringing nature into my home and office by placing pictures of my favorite mountains. When placed behind one’s back, portraits of mountains make nice gifts since they symbolize support and strong relationships. Also, pictures of mountains with blue hues are particularly great for boosting career or professional luck when placed in the north of the home or office.
Fountains are awesome presents to share with a friend or family member especially if they are stressed and in need of a “chill pill.” Fountains are so calming and easy to take care of and great ways to boost wealth, health or career luck.
Monkey on Horse
One of the cutest and most fun presents I like to give to those who are seeking career advancement in a tough corporate environment is a monkey on horse statue, which can be placed on their office desk. The pronunciation of the phrase Monkey on Horse in Chinese phonetically translates to mean that “a promotion is coming quickly.”
Mums or “chrysanthemums” are great gifts for those who love plants and flowers. They symbolize ease and lasting success, happiness, and love luck. They are perfect for bringing good chi into stale home or office environments.
Who doesn’t love crystals? I especially love the beauty of crystal globes. They make great gifts for those who are currently in school and are seeking knowledge and success in education.
Turtles and tortoises are associated with longevity, good health, good fortune, and career success. Gift a tortoise or dragon tortoise statue and have the gift recipient simply place the statue in a location that is in harmony with the materials and colors of the statue. For example, a bronze dragon tortoise can be placed in the north to boost career luck.
I love giving feng shui presents to family and friends. These presents not only make unique gifts, but they also allow me to provide a sense of care and personal touch to those I care about. I hope you find these gift ideas fun and useful!
