By now, most of us are officially out-gifted, but, if you do have an occasion for gift giving this January, then, symbols of luck for the New Year may be just the way to go. Different cultures accord different meanings to symbols, and at CoutureLab, we love to celebrate diversity, so we have a few suggestions for you. An elephant, a tiger, a horse or a tortoise will suit you if you have an Eastern philosophy, particularly if they are made of lucky jade; the Hand of Hamsa is perfect for the mystics among your friends. Gifts featuring a butterfly are also a great idea; the butterfly is a symbol of transformation, of happiness and sociability. If, rather than through a symbol you prefer to communicate with color, something orange always radiates positivity – as this is the color of eternal optimism - and something orange is bound to brighten up a dreary winter day.
