Safe trip: “Have a safe journey and travel safe”. How often do we hear wishes like that, or want to give a gift to wish safe travels to someone we know?
At Christmas time many people are looking for that ideal and meaningful Christmas present. Folks are also planning their next year’s vacation or holidays: So it could be a good time to combine a gift for travellers with a simple present at Christmas . . wishing friends or loved-ones be holiday safety, and have a safe journey. (See our Good Luck Gift Shop store.)
The most common gift to wish safe travels, is some sort of protection bracelet or safe travels bracelet: It is simple, easy to carry when travelling (on holiday for example), usually low cost (so not a huge disaster if lost) and meaningful. As gifts for travellers go, a safe travel bracelet is it!

But of what does this travel bracelet consist? A simple lucky talisman strung on a bracelet? Or perhaps it is something more meaningful: A piece of spiritual or religious jewellery perhaps?
In this respect, when it comes to travel, people tend to look for something that offers a form of “protection”. Yes, even in these modern times, many people (whatever their faith or religion) still believe in some sort of divine spirit or guardian angel watching over them, acting as a guide, a guardian or protector: It could be a God, a Saint, a Guardian Angel or a simple religious symbol of faith. In the Christian or Catholic world, the St Christopher talisman is a good example of this – and St Christopher bracelets, necklaces and other jewellery are common gifts indeed. But there are more examples of safe travel bracelets too, and the one above features the cross of St James (Saint James is the patron Saint of pilgrims, and travellers in general, whereas St Christopher is patron of all sorts of travelling (and especially long journeys)).
It is said that good luck travelling and a safe return home is not a matter of fate, but of faith. And even for agnostics who maybe prefer some other form of lucky symbol to accompany them on their travels, a safe travels bracelet featuring a powerful symbol like a Saint, couldn’t do any harm!
On the other hand, wouldn’t it be nice to gift something to a friend or loved-one travelling to wish safe travel and safekeeping that really worked! And in a way, you can: By giving a friend or loved-one a Safe Travels bracelet (for example), they will be REMINDED of your concerns while they are travelling and so, hopefully, take extra care. And this is the most important thing.
Tennessee Williams said that “Luck is believing you are lucky” and many people admit that there is a power in a thought made positive by a lucky charm symbol – being a constant reminder of purpose and desires. And so it is also with a lucky charm travel bracelet (or other piece of jewellery) to wish someone a safe journey: In addition to any value in the lucky charm symbol itself, or the religious faith that it might represent, a gift to wish safe travels can actually act as a REMINDER TO BE CAREFUL. And this can be very important and a powerful aid to staying safe whilst travelling away from home.
Anyway, at Christmas time, when the Christian faith is foremost, a safe travel bracelet (or other piece of religious jewellery perhaps, like a necklace or earrings) based on a Christian symbol can be very appropriate as a meaningful Christmas present.
