Your parents or grandparents would probably have mentioned this before, never visit someone’s house empty handed! It’s always recommended to courteously show up with thoughtful gifts to be greeted with open arms 🙂 Especially during Chinese New Year, gift-giving can help express your utmost care to loved ones all around. Looking forward to finally meeting your relatives and basking in the festivities? We’ve rounded up the perfect Chinese New Year gifts to enjoy together as a family that you can bring along during your visits (with your oranges and red packets)!
Box of 5 Pineapple Cakes by SunnyHills are available at $18, via customised gift box.
No Chinese New Year is ever complete without pineapple cakes. Nothing comes close to wishing “Gong Xi Fa Cai!” with these delicious bite-sized staples that resemble wealth and prosperity! A melting pot of two heavenly flavours – crumbly cake base and sweet pineapple jam, these irresistible delicacies will leave the whole family munching the entire day.
Fish Skin Chips
As the saying goes, “Nian Nian You Yu!” where fish is considered a lucky dish for Chinese New Year. Fret not, you don’t have to give a whole fish to wish for a year full of abundance when you can conveniently opt for delectable fish skin! These treats, coated with salted egg flavour have been increasingly popular in recent years – which is just excellent for sharing!

What else will you be stuffing yourself with while waiting for the reunion dinner to be prepared? Peanuts carry an auspicious meaning of vitality and long life!

While you’re busy catching up with the grown-ups, don’t forget the little ones as well! It’s always sweet to bring along some chocolates as a surprise treat for them for studying hard and to spur them on through the new semester! Besides, chocolates can also keep them occupied in the meantime 😉
Take a break from the intense mahjong sessions. Get everyone together for some fun and interactive rounds of The Singaporean Dream: The New Normal Card Game!
