Bring the Good LUCK

These birds are seen in all 12 months of the year and usually have 12 eggs in their nests. In Native American lore, the number 12 is considered lucky. If a cardinal is seen, it’s believed that person will have good luck either at noon, midnight, or 12 hours/days after the sighting. They can become a good luck charm for someone buying their new home or starting a new job.

Symbols of LOYALTY

Cardinals are loyal creatures--they mate for life and develop a close relationship with their young. Whether someone is shopping for the holidays or a special occasion, cardinal gifts will be exquisite gifts for loyal friends and family. Symbolic promises to stay true go a long way!


Native Americans see cardinals as messengers for the spirit world. If a cardinal is spotted, it’s believed that a recently departed loved one is trying to make a connection. A cardinal gift may help comfort someone going through a loss, so keep them near your “Sympathy” or “Thinking of You” display.
