Holiday Gift Guide for the Lunar New Year

As of 2023, the Lunar New Year begins on January 22 and is the Year of the Water Rabbit. 2023 is predicted to be a year of hope, as the rabbit's sign symbolizes longevity, peace, and prosperity.

Stylish Clothes In Traditional Colors

Avoid colors like white, black, or blue, as they are often associated with colors of death and funeral attire. Instead, choose colors such as red, yellow, and gold if you provide any gift, as they all symbolize wealth and prosperity. 

Here are some stylish suggestions, perfectly customized to match the animal of this Lunar New Year.
