Welcome to the year of the Dragon—a year that is going to represent a symbol of great significance in Chinese cosmology. Commemorating on February 10, 2024, a new lunar cycle symbolizing rebirth will begin, and if there's somebody in your life that is going to be celebrating the occasion, they'll certainly appreciate the thoughtful act of you getting them a gift. Understandably with the crazy holiday season having just passed, you may be getting a little stumped with trying to come up with you could possibly purchase as a gift since you just splurged on your respective boyfriends, girlfriends, teenagers, and best friends. No need to fret and sweat, we've put together a guide to the best Lunar New Year Gifts that you can shop right now ranging from clothing to home goods.
Getting the perfect Lunar New Year gift also means understanding more about the holiday and what it represents. According to Marca: the Chinese New Year is "an ancient celebration that marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle and culturally represents a rebirth, full of deep-rooted traditions and ancestral symbolism," and as we mentioned earlier, 2024 is the year of the Dragon. That said, thinking along the lines of things that represent the element of "new" or "rebirth" (a Dyson V15 for example), could be a great gift to give to somebody who closed out 2023 with a move, or plans on moving in the year 2024.
