CNY 2024: A guide to the best food and lifestyle gifts that promise to impress

While the Christmas gifting season may be well over, the Chinese New Year festivities are just ramping up. Bright red hampers are commonplace during this time, filled with food products and items believed to be auspicious for the new year. We’ve also seen a ton of bespoke and curated gifts on the market in recent years that do the trick if your love language is gift giving. Without further ado, here is our gift guide for Chinese New Year 2024. 



Who can say no to chocolates? Not us. Venchi’s gift collection is sure to bring a little sweetness to your reunions with its artisan chocolates. Each box, including the show-stopping CNY Large Double Layer Gift Box, is embellished with a dragon illustration and floral motifs that add a pop of colour to the boxes. The collection is available at Venchi’s Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and Seibu @ The Exchange TRX outlets. 

On the other hand, Japanese chocolatier Royce is presenting three seasonal collections—each including your favourite Royce chocolates and treats—and a rum-flavoured seasonal special Nama Chocolate. Our favourite is the Chinese New Year variety pack, which gives you a taste of the best of Royce. 

Lastly, Godiva’s Chinese New Year Chocolate Gift Box is wrapped in festive shades of red and gold and contain chocolates all exclusive seasonal flavours of praline and carré, including passion fruit caramel white chocolate.



Amazin’ Graze’s New Year, New Me box, RM78

Give the gift of clean eating with Amazin’ Graze’s trio of snack boxes this Chinese New Year. Pairing perfectly with wishes for vitality and Chinese New Year biscuits, this New Year, New Me box contains packs of the homegrown brand’s granola bites, nut mixes, protein blends, and more. 



A staple in many celebrations, tea is always a welcome addition to dining tables and TWG Tea’s Grand Dragon Tea will fit right in. This exquisite tea is the latest addition to the luxury tea brand’s Grand Mode tea collection and boasts notes of mandarin orange. It is available for purchase at all TWG Tea outlets.

For sweet bites, Elevete’s collection of Chinese New Year baked goods will do the trick at satisfying any sweet tooth. We particularly enjoy its East Meets West box that combines flavours of Chinese New Year with classic French bakes. 



We’ve all got that one friend who is constantly travelling, even over the Chinese New Year holidays. Lululemon’s Lunar New Year capsule is a nod to the overlapping nature of dragons’ scales and is perfectly hued to match the signature colour of the season: red. We love the Lunar New Year Satin Balloon Sleeve Jacket that can complete a sleek airport look. 

Trusty travel brand Tumi has also launched its Spring collection in tandem with its Lunar New Year collection, both comprising travel essentials and accessories. The latter collection features motifs created in collaboration with Shanghainese artist Weber Zhang. The 19 Degree Aluminum International Extended Trip Packing Case in Forest Green is the perfect chic companion for rolling through airports. For a festive yet classy twist, opt for the limited-edition Lunar New Year version that features a dancing dragon on its interiors.
