The Lunar New Year, commonly referred to as Chinese New Year, falls on the 10 February 2023 – and this year, we’re celebrating the Year of the Dragon. Gift-giving is a key part of this special holiday, as they symbolise wishes of prosperity and good fortune for the year ahead. Tradition suggests we give a lucky red packet full of new bills to children, unmarried adults and elderly parents, but it’s not uncommon these days to see people giving more modern gifts to each other (or saving a few themselves). To get ready for the celebrations, we’ve curated our very own Lunar New Year gift guide, which you can browse below…
