Easter is a good occasion to gift something really special and inspirational. But where did the event of Easter come from?

Easter gets its name from Eostre, the great mother goddess of the Saxons of Northern Europe. And, in many cultures, eggs are central to the event of Easter. Eggs used to be associated with spring as a symbol of germination and a new life.

So the custom of giving eggs as presents at Easter time, was incorporated into the Christian event as a way to symbolise Christ’s resurrection. Eggs, often forbidden during Lent, were brought to the dinner tables at the occasion of Easter (dyed red) to symbolise the joy of this celebration.

A really special gift of faith

This is something special and unique: An exquisite solid-silver bookmark which is handcrafted in northern Spain into the shape of the St James cross, and featuring a scallop shell / concha de vieira, the symbol of the Camino de Santiago. “La Cruz de Santiago es un símbolo que favorece el coraje y la esperanza ante las dificultades”

The 1,000-year-old pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is known as the Way of St. James (El Camino de Santiago - in Spanish). Some 200,000 pilgrims travel to the city each year from all over the world to find inspiration and/or deeper spiritual understanding.

:)- Optional information card about Santiago and El Camino (free)

:)- Personal message can be added

This would make an extraordinary gift, for example: A Christening present to treasure for a lifetime; a Communion gift; a religious Christmas present with meaning; or indeed, a special gift for anyone involved with the Camino de Santiago, or of a Christian persuasion.

Description: This petite solid sterling-silver St James cross measures 8.4cms (3.25") in length and 3.6cm (1.45") in width, and features an intricately handcrafted scallop shell in the centre. At the top of the cross is a beautiful red silk tassel.

In Xacobeo 2010 - a Holy Year (Año Santo) in Spain because the Feast of St James (on 25th July) fell on a Sunday, over 272,000 pilgrims completed the final 100 km walk to Santiago and qualified for the 'Compostela' or certificate. The Way of St. James criss-crosses Western Europe, arriving at Santiago through Northern Spain. It is generally regarded as a journey of the body, mind and spirit. Modern pilgrims choose to do the Camino for personal, spiritual and/or religious reasons - or simply to take time out from their busy, modern lives. For many, the walk is to find inspiration - improving their outlook on life, bringing them into closer contact with nature and expanding their cultural horizons through contact with other pilgrims. Everyone experiences the journey in a different way.

Gift this unique St James cross bookmark to wish someone good fortune in their life, or on their journey. Comes gift-wrapped, like all our presents - and we can add a personal message on your behalf
