When thought of and envisioned, a ladybug, or a ladybird as some like to call them, are fine and elegant creatures that immediately catch the eye. The multitude of shades and the sheer vibrancy of their color is enough to leave one in awe. From red to white, the dotted insects are anything but reviled.
The wonder and amazement that they inspire is not merely coincidence at play. Ladybugs, which are often touted as the embodiment of Lady Luck, are a symbol of protection and prosperity. Ladybugs wander about as they please and fly off as soon as they reach the tip of a finger
Depending upon who the ladybug gift is intended for, you can choose between jewelry items, clothing, decorative pieces etc
Regardless of the form these symbolic gifts take, they’re sure to be pleasing to the eye and will hopefully attract a lot of prosperity and good fortune your way. While keeping you safe and protected.
Before delving into the discussion on what would make an appropriate ladybug gift for your loved ones, it’s a good idea to get an understanding and perspective on what makes these particular beetles stand out.
What Is so Symbolic about Ladybugs Anyway?
There are many myths, symbolism, and attributes that are often linked to these tiny creatures. Depending upon who you ask, you will get varied answers about what makes ladybugs so special. Here are some of them. For a more in-depth view, take a look at my article Ladybugs, in Luck, Love, and Symbolism.
A Little about the Friendly LadyBugs
Belonging to the family of the Beatles, ladybugs vary in their colors, although red is the most common. Also known as lady beetles, they have distinct markings, generally dots, on their bodies
Regardless, these oval-shaped incredibly tiny creatures are beautiful, simply put. Not only are they harmless to nature and other beings, but they’re incredibly important to us, and they are quite beneficial for gardens and agriculture, which is why they are lauded to be the bearers of good news and incredible luck.
Different cultures associate different significances to ladybugs. While the reality of these myths or superstitions is debatable, it never hurts to believe in a little bit of luck.
Some cultures consider it an honor if a ladybug lands on a person and presume that the ladybug brings change and improved circumstances for its bearer. The ladybug’s charm is such that the Chinese art of Feng Shui includes the insect as a part of optimizing energy flow.
Some people also hold to the belief that ladybugs represent a safety charm of sorts such that if a newborn child were to have something adorned with the insect, like a toy or clothing showcasing the ladybird, then it would see to their wellbeing and shield them from any bad omen.
Another blessing that the Beatles bequeath to its owner is one that nature has made innate to them. Farmers employ ladybugs to populate their crops and fields to ward off pest insects that are otherwise detrimental to their produce.
Seeing Ladybugs in a Dream
Some people are also of the belief that dreaming about ladybugs has a significant underlying meaning to it. Seeing a ladybird in your dream foretells of good news coming your way from an unlikely source. It serves as a sort of prediction for luck and is considered to be a fortunate time for making important decisions and dabbling in investment opportunities.

But while the insect is often associated with positivity, the opposite is just as plausible. It is said that in seeing a dream in which a ladybug is in a cotton field symbolizes enemies spreading malicious and disreputable gossip pertaining to you. Similarly, seeing a swarm of ladybirds symbolizes chaos and pandemonium in one’s life and cautions one to proceed with care.
Make a Wish upon a Ladybug
Magical beings that they are and flamboyant in their appearance, ladybugs confer good luck on people by doing the simple favor of landing on a person.
Although most beetles inspire horror and are reviled when they crawl upon an in individual, the opposite is the case when considering these minute creatures, allowing it to be no wonder that ladybirds are such a revered and treasured species of insects.
And as folklore and mythic tales would have it, if someone makes a wish when a ladybug is perched on the hand, they get their wish. The direction that the ladybird flies away in becomes the way from which the blessings or the fulfillment of the wish will appear.
