Chinese New Year means… new clothes, new shoes and SNACKS. Millennials who are not married yet don’t have to give angpows (we receive them instead, yay!) but that doesn’t mean you can join in the spirit of giving! We don’t mean you have to give red packets (though you totally can), but why not give something everyone would appreciate (besides money), which is snacks? But gifting the usual pineapple tarts, crispy love letters and spicy dried shrimp rolls can get a little predictable after awhile. Here are a few unusual picks you might like! Some of these are limited-edition items, so you’ll definitely want to stock them up this festive season. They are so pretty, you can even gift them to lucky family members (or hoard them all for yourself!).
