While many of us just finished celebrating the solar New Year (January 1st) about a month ago, a large portion of the world is gearing-up to celebrate another calendar milestone: Chinese New Year. Roughly 1/6 of the world’s population will be celebrating the 15-day festival and its traditions. One of the many traditions associated with the Chinese New Year is the practice of exchanging gifts. Similar to Christmas in the West, it is customary to exchange gifts between friends and family during the festival. Red packaging and gifts are the most special, as red symbolizes good fortune, sincerity, and joy. In the spirit of Chinese New Year, I have found some items that would make perfect gifts for your loved ones. What better way to usher in the year of the goat than with a little luxury?
SPECIAL ADVICE. It is considered taboo to give the following gifts: Clocks, shoes, pearls, handkerchiefs, umbrellas, green hats, or anything black or white.
