Chinese New Year Hamper

by / Tuesday, 27 January 2015 / Published in CNY

During the festive season, it has been a tradition for many to gift New Year hampers to their business partners, relatives and friends. In a hamper, it usually consists of a variety of food types that may come in the form of canned food, tonics, and dried products. For a premier price, the hamper will come with a bottle or two of red wine too.

Examples of items found in a hamper:

Canned food – Abalone, sea cucumber, canned fruit cocktails

Tonics – Bird nest, chicken’s essence, cordyceps

Dried products – ginseng, dried mushrooms, Chinese new year cookies, peanuts, assorted sweets

These products are significant gifts as it symbolize blessings for the recipient to be able to eat well and lead a luxury lifestyle.

There is a Chinese saying, “礼尚往来“ also known as “As the call, so the echo” – which is to imply one to gift back the giver as a token of appreciation. Henceforth, it is not uncommon for the Chinese to deliver hampers every alternate year, sometimes depending on what they received from the other party the previous year.
