Celebrate the Year of the Dragon with our annual Lunar New Year Friendship Box (available in mid-January). Inside you'll find:
Treats to Bring Good Fortune. Eat your way to luck with various auspicious sweets!
Year of the Dragon Item. People born in dragon years are thought to be charismatic, intelligent, confident, and natural-born leaders. Dragons are also considered lucky in general. In Chinese culture, they're powerful and benevolent creatures that represent wisdom and good fortune.
Red Money Envelopes. Also called hong bao or lai see, these envelopes aren’t for mailing letters. They’re for gifting money, the crisper the bills the better. Children and singletons will especially benefit: traditionally, married couples are supposed to give hong bao to the young and unattached.
Lucky Charm. Attracting good fortune is imperative during the New Year. You can do so with a lucky charm such as a diamond knot for longevity or lucky coins for prosperity.
Noisemaker. Setting off firecrackers to scare away evil spirits is a Lunar New Year tradition. But anything noisy will do, whether a drum or party blower, or symbolically clamorous item like a firecracker decoration.
Pocket Chinese Almanac. What will 2024 bring? Find out in this mini book of daily household tips, health remedies, and recommendations. Translated and annotated by Joanna Lee and Ken Smith. PLEASE NOTE: Due to a shortage of almanacs, some boxes will have a substitution of equal or higher value.
