Celebrate the Year of the Tiger With These Lunar New Year Gifts

Bestproducts.com Logo By Katherine Pittman of Bestproducts.com | Slide 1 of 21: The new year is an exciting time to look forward, reflect on the past, and celebrate living in the moment — but it doesn't always come on Jan. 1! Lunar New Year (also known as Chinese New Year), occurs on the first new moon of the year, usually sometime between late January and February. This year, which is the year of the tiger in the Chinese zodiac, Lunar New Year is on Feb. 1. Lunar New Year is a time for families to gather and celebrate together, eat delicious meals, share gifts, and decorate and clean their homes to usher in good luck for the year. If you're exchanging gifts in celebration of the new year, it's always a good idea to know what not to gift, too. Stay away from black and white items (which are often given at funerals), necklaces (which are usually reserved as a gift for partners), or a clock (which is considered bad luck). Stick to things that are red or gold, which symbolize luck and wealth! (And might we suggest investing in some reading material for adults and kids, too?)Still not sure where to start? We've done the research for you. Here are 20 Lunar New Year gifts that are sure to please (and uplift AAPI-owned businesses, too). Xīnnián hǎo!
