Nearly everyone in Thailand knows of, if not observes, the traditions of Chinese New Year. A day meant for families, loved ones, and close friends, there’s something warm and familial about the occasion. And, possessing Chinese heritage or not, anyone can take part in festivities, be them traditional or more contemporary.  As we ring in the lunar new year of the dog over this weekend, here are some special #CNY-themed gifts for a more meaningful way of celebrating with your loved ones.
