We Love the Color Green for Luxury Gifts

As a kid, my favorite color fresh out of a Crayola 64 Crayon box was GREEN. It was the perfect shade of green- crisp and vivid, with just the right hint of warmth.

Right after that, my next go-to was Yellow-Green. It added dimension and perkiness to my flowers and petals. And I secretly liked that no one else ever seemed to appreciate it, calling it “puke green.” Rounding out the top 3 was Sea Green. It was a magical hue that inspired pictures of mermaids, unicorns with flowing hair and dainty fairy wings. It’s safe to say that green was the prominent color in my imaginary world.

Green has Symbolic Meaning

In the real world, green is significant for many cultures. In the Ming Dynasty, green symbolized the heavens. And the jade stone’s importance can not be overstated as a reflection of Confucian values of wisdom, modesty and compassion. Not to mention, all of my Taiwanese relatives and aunties sported jade bangles around their wrists, meant to provide safety and protection.

Interestingly enough, I married into an Irish-American family whose default color choice is always the lucky shamrock green. What color placemats to buy? Green! What color to paint the front door? Green! In Muslim countries, green is a holy color associated with paradise.

And the green of the olive branch is of course, the traditional color to represent peace. What better hue for a gift for a precious loved one?
