SINGAPORE – In light of the rising COVID-19 community cases, each household will only be allowed to welcome eight visitors a day, and the guests are advised to also limit themselves to visiting only two other households a day. The tightened measures will be implemented Tuesday (26 January) as Singapore plans a quieter Chinese New Year celebration this year.

While most of us are choosing to usher the Chinese New Year in Singapore albeit a smaller celebration, you can still continue on with the gifting tradition to bring festive smiles to everyone.

Some of these ‘auspicious’ hampers feature mandarin oranges, which signify good fortune, as the word ‘orange’, when spoken in Mandarin, sounds like ‘wealth.’ You could also gift hampers that contain abalone, mushrooms and bird’s nests – food offerings that are thought to carry good fortunes.

Abalone or sea snail signifies good fortune; apricot brings you gold or wealth; and bamboo fungus is said to bring you long life.

Here are some ‘auspicious’ hampers you can order for your loved ones and family members.
