9 Gifts to Celebrate The Lunar New Year, The Year of The Tiger

9 Gifts to Celebrate The Lunar New Year, The Year of The Tiger

On Feb 1, 2022, we will transition from the year of the ox to the year of the tiger. The traditional Lunar New Year is celebrated with family and friends and consists of four main elements: Little Year, which takes place one week before the Lunar New Year and is a day of memorial and prayers; New Year’s Eve, a day of reunion and gift-giving; Spring Festival, which runs for 11 days and includes a festival of family activities, prayer, lots of food; Lantern Festival, which concludes the Lunar New Year and is celebrated with family and friends and is marked by making lanterns and lighting them in the sky.

Gifting during the Lunar New Year will include the colors red, yellow and gold to symbolize wealth and prosperity. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite gifts to ring in the year of the tiger.
