Now that house visits are allowed during Chinese New Year, you must be asking – what should I get as a gift? Gift-giving when visiting a person’s house during Chinese New Year signifies gratefulness. However, there are many superstitions when it comes to buying gifts for house visits. One of them is that you should never buy a gift that’s black or white. Furthermore, it is preferred that you do not give items in 4’s as this is the taboo number. Other than that, there are also a few items you shouldn’t give as gifts. For example, don’t give clocks, umbrellas, pears, chrysanthemums, and more. Getting too much for you to handle? Fret not then, because we’ve compiled some of the best gift sets and hampers you can get this Chinese New Year.
