Last Minute Gifts To Celebrate Chinese New Year With

These covetable goodies are great gifts to give yourself or your loved ones on this occasion.

People worldwide are gearing up to usher in a fresh start to the lunisolar calendar on January 22nd. Chinese New Year is arguably the most important holiday in Chinese culture and has influenced similar Lunar New Year celebrations in many neighboring countries.

This year is special in particular, as the first year post-pandemic when traditional festivities and gatherings are set to return to regular programming. Even mainland China, which followed a strict zero-Covid policy, has finally eased its restrictions.

With that, a fresh new sense of joyfulness and celebration is returning to retail. Luxury brands in particular are releasing exciting new limited collections just for the New Year. Unlike before, these collections are now featuring collaborations with Chinese creatives. This is both a nod to their commitment to the market and to the rising guochao or national trend, which sees younger Chinese generations becoming more interested in integrating their traditional culture into modern life.

Lunar New Year is typically celebrated for 16 days, with the first 11 reserved for Spring Festival, and the last four days as the Lantern Festival. As we welcome the year of the water rabbit this Sunday, let’s take a look at the most covetable luxury items that would make great gifts during this celebratory season:

Tiffany & Co. Lock Bangle

There’s nothing quite like receiving that classic robin’s-egg Tiffany’s blue box, no matter the occasion. The world-famous jeweler is making sure that excitement extends to the Lunar New Year with its extensive collection. Consider the Tiffany Lock Bangle with full Pavé diamonds to ensure good fortune for you or your loved one.

Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama Alma BB

The latest collaboration from the French fashion house and Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama has been sweeping the internet since its release. If you’re looking to complete your lucky red look, consider accessorizing with this wearable piece of art.

Nespresso x Angel Chen NOMAD Travel Mug

This year, luxury coffee brand Nespresso teamed up with Chinese designer Angel Chen to produce a collection that fuses East and West. One such item is this versatile travel mug in festive red, ready for you to fill with your favorite brew and take on the go.

Ferragamo Auspicious Rabbit Sneakers

In keeping with the color palette during this occasion, Ferragamo released a limited update on several of their classics, which includes a pair of leather sneakers. This pair could be just the accent you need to spice up your look this holiday.

Loewe Bunny Bag

Loewe reimagined their classic Bunny Bag to suit this Chinese New Year. According to the brand, besides the bunny ears which are an obvious nod to the zodiac, the knot also represents human connection and good fortune.
