It’s Chinese and Luna New Year! That means fireworks, lavish gifts, those little red packets and awesome food.
If you’re a little lost for inspiration, never fear! I have done all the hard work for you.
I am a compulsive gift buyer, the only thing I like as much as shopping for myself is shopping for others, so check out my gift guide below for ideas to spoil that special someone this February.
For the Fitness Freak
Anyone who is planning on indulging in one too many spring rolls will appreciate this little gadget that tracks calories burned, steps and even your sleep! This will help even the most dedicated athlete monitor their health and motivate beginners to stay on track.
For the New Tradionalist
Yep, you can buy a goat now. It is The Year of The Goat after all. For $39 you can provide a Goat to a person in need in Mozambique, they will bread with other goats and help provide for them in the future. You get a cute card to pop in a red packet and plenty of good karma for helping someone in need.
For Your Elizabeth Taylor
It may not be diamonds but what woman doesn’t like jewelry? especially when it’s from the iconic Tiffany & Co. This charm symbolizes “Wealth” and that’s exactly what you better have if you want to buy it at $1,100 AUD. Though, I’m sure for the matriarch of the family that’s just about right.
For the Culture Clashing Mate
If there is one thing that every Australian should own, it’s pair of thongs. No country wears thongs as proudly as Aussies, so if you’re spending the New Year down under then a pair of bright red thongs is perfect. Even if it’s just to stop your pedicure from smudging, most Aussies live in these and why not embrace the culture clash and mix and iconic pair of footwear with an iconic colour and celebrate the year of the sheep as well.
For the Otaku
Excuse me while I let out a ridiculously high-pitched squeal! Any self-respecting Japan obsessed lover of comfy footwear will adore these. There are two types of people in this world, those who love Hello Kitty and those who love ugg boots, some genius has combined the two to celebrate the new year!
For The Scent Lover
How perfect are these matching sets for the couple who like to do everything together. EVERYTHING.
If the “Korean couple style” matching outfits are a bit much for you, then embrace your romance with these complimentary scents.
For Your Hot Asian Man
Or any man for that matter, how adorably cute and strangely hot is this onesie? This is the perfect opportunity to embrace the matching couples outfit in the privacy of your own home. How could you resist a snuggle with your man in this.
