Lunar New Year gift card FAQs

The start of the holiday coincides with the date of the new moon on February 9, 2024, and continues for 15 days. The celebrations culminate with the Chinese Lantern festival on the 24th February.

Gift-giving during Lunar New Year is an art steeped in love and respect. Unlike birthdays or Christmas, these gifts carry wishes for prosperity, wealth, and happiness.

A massage gift card can make a thoughtful present to celebrate the occasion. In traditional Chinese medicine, massage is a gentle and effective way to repair your body.

Here's some of the dos and don'ts of Lunar New Year gifting, like understanding the significance of lucky and unlucky colours, numbers, and the importance of giving and receiving evenly.

Lucky (and unlucky) colours

In Asian cultures, red, gold, and yellow symbolise luck and prosperity, while black, white, or blue are avoided due to associations with death and misfortune. (Just so you know, our physical gift cards come in yellow envelopes!)

Lucky (and unlucky) numbers

Numbers hold immense significance in Asian traditions. For example, "four" is considered taboo as it sounds like the word for death, while "eight" is deemed lucky as it sounds like the word for wealth and success. Learn more about the cultural importance of numbers in gift-giving.

Think evenly

Even numbers, excluding four, are considered lucky. From the amount of money given to the number of gifts, maintaining balance is key. Discover the art of giving and receiving with cultural respect and thoughtfulness.

Embraced across various nations, Chinese New Year, often referred to as Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, incorporates rich cultural elements. From the iconic 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac to the vibrant festivities lasting about two weeks, the celebration features symbolic foods, dragon dances, and the customary giving of red envelopes symbolizing good wishes and luck.

Message Ideas for Lunar New Year Cards:

  1. Traditional greetings and sayings:

    • Extend warm wishes with common phrases like "gong hei fat choy" (Cantonese) or "gong xi fa cai" (Mandarin).

    • Simplify your message with a heartfelt "Happy New Year" in Mandarin ("xin nian kuai le") or Cantonese ("san nin fai lok").

  2. Wishes for family and friends:

    • Convey sincere wishes for happiness, health, and peace, such as:

      • "Wishing you luck and happiness in the year ahead."

      • "May this new year bring you good health and good fortune."

      • "Happy New Year! May success and happiness follow you."

  3. Personalised touch for Lunar New Year wishes:

    • Add a touch of your personality to the message, infusing warmth and authenticity into your well-wishes.

  4. Wishes for work clients and colleagues:

    • In the corporate realm, express prosperity with greetings like:

      • "May this new year bring you success in your career."

      • "Wishing you great wealth and happiness in the coming year."

      • "May your business flourish and bring you joy."

Whether you partake in the festivities or extend your wishes to friends and colleagues, these unique Lunar New Year messages aim to bring a personal touch to your cards. Remember, embracing cultural traditions with genuine sentiments fosters care, kindness, and acceptance.

There are two ways you can gift someone a massage: by booking a treatment on their behalf, or with a massage gift voucher.

Massage gift vouchers have the advantage of allowing the recipient to decide which massage to have, and when and where to enjoy it.
