The Meaning Behind Pet Charms

By Aries Shapney

For many of us, pampering our pets by giving them meaningful gifts is deemed second nature. More and more pet lovers are seeking unique items to present their beloved companions as they tire of the conventional dog collars, cat bells and other common pet paraphernalia found in run-of-the-mill pet stores. For this reason, pet charms are becoming favorable gifts for pets. Pet charms bear a host of special meanings so whether you choose to purchase some for your own pets or present it to a fellow pet lover as a gift, your pet will be the center of attention wherever you go.

Feng shui pet charms are very popular among staunch feng shui practitioners and those who are casual believers in this concept. Most owners elect to buy attractive pet charms bearing symbols of the dragon and phoenix in the hope that their pets will be blessed with good luck, fame and recognition. Pet charms carrying symbols of the Chinese bamboo will not only bestow fortune upon your canine and feline friends but also upon yourself. A majority of female pet owners are fans of pink pet charms especially those imprinted with flowers such as iris, peony and magnolia. Understandably, this is because both the color and flowers will attract an aura of love and considerable wealth respectively to both the pets and their owners. And those who wish to have their four legged friends blessed with long and healthy lives will have them don pet charms with star symbols on them as the fire element-based symbol will generate energy and protect your pets from harm.

Other types of pet charms that are quickly becoming preferred gifts these days include the four leaf clover charm. You might find yourself enjoying good luck if your pet wears this charm just like carrying a five leaf clover pet charm will prolong the relationship between you and your furry companion. Strong believers of good luck charms will want to purchase an ID tag with a symbol of the Hamsa. The Hamsa is a palm-shaped Judaic symbol with Middle Eastern origins which can protect your pets from forces of evil. The ID tags bearing the Hamsa symbol are most often made from metals such as iron or gold. This is to ensure that the reflective surface will bounce off evil aura directed at your pet as well as ward off elements of misfortune.

Conclusively, whether you choose to believe in pet charms or not, you can still buy them for your pets because they make unusually good pet accessories. This is your chance to break away from the norm, so do consider letting your pets wear a unique pet charm or two today!
