Chase Away Bad Dreams With a Dream Catcher
Dream catchers can be quite an enchanting gift. They are a simple circle frame that is filled with a mesh webbing, and decorated with long flowing feathers, and beads. These charms insure that a sleeping person can only experience good dreams during their slumber.
Originally designed by the Ojibwa peoples to protect their children from nightmares, a dream catcher consisted of a willow tear or circle shape, netted inside with sinew just as a snowshoe would be. This net was then decorated with feathers, and other ornaments, and hung above the bed to catch the sleepers dreams.
Good dreams could filter through the web and slide down the feathers to enter the sleepers dreams. Nightmares or bad dreams could not filter through the net, and remained trapped within the web, thus insuring only good dreams for the person who owned the dream catcher. This traditional charm is now a popular theme for people of all ages.
When a person gives a dream catcher to their love interest to help insure her a peaceful dream filled slumber this gift shows a sweet concern for your partner. It can be quite a sentimental gift. Want to increase the sentimental aspect of this gift on Valentine's day? Attach a ring, bracelet, or necklace to the web and watch her eyes sparkle. Dream catchers come in a wide array of themes and colors. Want to really step up your game? Tangle a little gold or a diamond in the threads. That will most certainly get her attention.
