After Chinese New Year, we will be in the Year of the Dragon (for context, 2023 was the Year of the Rabbit).
What is an appropriate gift to give on Chinese New Year?
A lucky plant like a Lucky Bamboo or Money Tree is an appropriate gift to give on Chinese New Year. These plants symbolise wealth and good fortune, so they're a sweet gift.
Alternatively, our Moët & Gourmet Nibbles Hamper is a good gift. It comes with a nice bottle of Moët & Chandon's premium champagne and a selection of savoury nibbles from Australia's best artisans. It's got something for everyone and is perfect for toasting.
What is lucky when giving gifts for Chinese New Year?
When giving gifts for Chinese New Year, here are some things you can do to make your gift more lucky:
- Use a lucky colour like red, yellow, and gold in the gift wrapping
- Give the gift with two hands to express respect
- If you're giving money, use red envelopes and newly printed notes
- Give gifts containing 8 of something
- Give oranges, kumquats, pomelos, and tangerines
Some gifts are bad luck or symbolise something negative. These gifts include umbrellas, a green hat, sharp objects, shoes, and pears. You should also avoid giving someone four of something ("four" is unlucky because the way it's said sounds like "death").
