Chinese New Year has begun! The festival, also known as the Lunar New Year, is celebrated by 2 billion people worldwide. On the agenda this year is time spent with loved ones, watching traditional performances and of course, gifting meaningful presents. Seeking a present for your little munchkin or their nursery that truly wows? Here’s what to grab and why it’s symbolic for Chinese New Year.
An elegant red baby outfit
The perfect outfit for their Lunar New Year celebrations? Take a look at the Rachel Riley Smocked Set in Red fit for a prince or Baby Bodysuit with Peter Pan Collar and Red Binding for your princess. Formal and fun for Chinese New Year 2022, red symbolises success, celebrations and good fortune (as gifts are usually given in small red envelopes during this joyous time). We’re loving the red Smocked Set (shirt and shorts), which is ultra-chic for those Chinese New Year family photo shoots. And the oh-so-gorgeous Baby Bodysuit with its smart red binding – style it with a red skirt or pretty pinafore dress. For bonus points, wrap their luxurious outfits in beautiful red paper.
Laced gold nursery décor
Gold is a magical, regal and charming colour to add to your baby’s nursery. So this Lunar New Year, opt for a gold gift that represents prosperity and elegance. Cue the exclusive Majestic Gold Collection Set AKA the gifts of all gifts – ones that promise to wow this Chinese New Year. In the collection, you’ll find everything to give their nursery an enchanting gold makeover, from the Majestic Gold Blanket for story time snuggles, to the Cushion Set, featuring two cushions (heart-shaped and bolster cushion) to jazz up their cot in the day and provide back support whilst rocking them at night. This set is ideal for gifting to a loved one or treating your little darling to.
An enchanting life-size toy
What’s more exciting than a toy? A large, life-size toy, of course! Meet the jaw-droppingly fun, adorable octopus toy that’s the perfect playtime companion. The Jellycat Odyssey Octopus Soft Toy in Huge is just what they need to spark their imagination and fuel their development, as they learn to play, babble to and show kindness to their new soft friend. You’ll be the best gift giver there is, especially as Odyssey is a sea moss green hue and green signifies health, harmony and purity in Chinese culture. Trust us, their face will light up when they receive this for Chinese New Year.
Whilst wallpaper might not seem like a typical gift, a tiger-themed bedroom makeover is on the hot list for Chinese New Year 2022. There’s nothing not to love about the Year of the Tiger – it depicts courage, confidence and chasing your dreams. Look no further than the Animalis Multi Wallpaper to compliment a tiger or wilderness themed nursery. This beautiful wallpaper gives you all the safari feels, where you’ll spot zebras, dodos and hippos alongside those terrific tigers. The beauty with this wallpaper is that it feels super-special to put up on Chinese New Year, but its timeless design means it’ll suit all seasons.
