The Lucky Penny
As the saying goes, “Find a penny, pick it up, and all day long you’ll have good luck.” In ancient times, people often thought that metals were gifts from the gods. They thought that metal would bring protection from evil, and started believing that the finding of metal would bring good luck. Besides this belief influencing the modern-day superstition of finding a lucky penny, pennies have also been seen as lucky because they increase wealth, and because wealth is a symbol of power. Some also believe that if you find a penny, more money is coming your way.

The Wishbone
Over the last few centuries, wishbones have come to symbolise good luck, optimism and love. The superstition can be traced back to the Medieval Period, when certain people claimed that they could divine the weather and a person’s fortune by using a bird’s wishbone. It's a symbol that many resonate with and is ideal as a gift for just about any occasion. Luck's always a good thing, and the wishbone goes beyond that, implying that you have a say in making your luck.
