Musical wind chimes are an easy yet personal gift for everyone. A decorative wind chime adds music to a backyard patio whether your friends are celebrating a wedding, anniversary, birthday, or new home.

Can you have too many wind chimes?


I don't think so. It's a personal decision to buy a single chime or mix alternate sounds in your yard. My house sits on a small lot with a lot of stately oaks. I hang 16 different chimes around the yard. They aren't too loud during a storm or offensive. My neighbors can hear them in their backyards on a breezy day, but they can still hold conversations and drown them out with TV or music. Do remember, the polite neighbor hangs their wind chimes closer to their house than the outside property line.

Wind chimes are visually artistic and audible


Today's musical wind chimes can be pretty elaborate and tuned to imitate familiar classical interludes like Pachabelle Cannon in D or the music of Westminister Abbey. There are low-tone bells that help with meditation and reflection. There are chimes for any occasion or mood.

Wind chimes are often used in Feng Shui


Wind chimes are a significant element in feng shui. They welcome peace and calm, lift chi from a troubled area, banish negative stars from corners, and encourage good news and help from others. There are specific rules for incorporating wind chimes correctly into your environment. I found this post by Katie Weber, one of the most helpful to follow the rules of feng shui regarding wind chimes.

I purchase my wind chimes for musicality. I love hearing Amazing Grace or Pachabelle's Cannon when the wind blows. My best friend enjoys the memories of walking on the beach when she hears her sea shell chimes tinkle. Whatever your reason for purchasing a set of bells, discovering the magic and falling in love is inevitable.
