Chinese New Year Hamper Delivery Singapore

Nearly all business owners will call for hampers to be sent to their best associates and important working partners, while families also do the same to show their love and appreciation for kinship. We totally understand the heart behind the hampers, but what do the items inside a typical Chinese New Year mean? Do they even symbolise anything?

1. Abalone

It’s one of those things your parents are willing to pay a premium for especially during Chinese New Year, since in mandarin, 鲍鱼 sounds alike to ‘a guarantee of receiving surplus’. Abalone is thus eaten with hopes of good fortune in the new year.

 

2. Pistachios

Translated to mandarin, 开心果means ‘happiness’.

3. Love Letters

Also known as egg rolls, Chinese tradition denotes that eggs represent fertility and mortality, also the reason why you’ll receive red eggs when attending the first-month celebration of a friend’s newborn. Looking much like a gold bar to signify wealth, this festive snack is a favourite among kids with its sugar, eggs and coconut recipe. 

 

 

4. Wines

Wines are typically drunk over celebrations, and it’s no different for Chinese New Year. Red wines, fruit punches and orange juices are especially favoured for their colours which represent wealth and luck.

5. Flower Mushrooms

Shiitake mushrooms are nothing short of a wonder food for the human body. They are stocked high with vitamins and minerals, shown to reduce blood cholesterol levels, are powerful sources of antioxidants, and aid in weight loss. When you send a box of flower mushrooms, you are thus wishing good health and longevity upon the recipient.

 

 

6. Candies

A heartfelt blessing to sweeten the recipient’s coming year.

7. Nuts, Red Dates, Dried Fruits, Seeds

Nuts and especially the cashew resembles a gold ingot and thus represent money, while seeds literally mean having a big harvest of children. Apricots indicate a blessed happiness, red dates of prosperity and fertility, while peanuts are a hope for good health, fortune and life.
