Fantastic Ang Pows For The Year Of The Rabbit & Where To Get Them This CNY
If collecting (or receiving) ang pows with unique designs sparks joy for you, then scroll on for more hoppiness, we mean, happiness, this Lunar New Year. Here are some of our faves from the Year of the Rabbit, ranging from the totally adorbs to exceptionally elegant.
Peekaboo, we see you, little gold-speckled bunny. Proof that cute and classy do go tu-gether. Receive it as part of a complimentary four-piece gift set with a minimum spend of $188.
These aren’t ang pows — the contemporary festive packets in calming hues of pink and blue can be used for any joyous occasion throughout the year. Spend $88 online or in-store at Love, Bonito to get a set.
Oriental motifs, but make it edgy and modern. ION+ Rewards Members can redeem a set of ang pows with a minimum $80 same-day spend.
Classic and understated — that Singapore Airlines’ iconic batik motif featured in the unique cut-out design is instantly recognisable. Redeemable with every $100 spent on KrisShop.
There's no technical glitch here — the blossoming digital roses are the abstract red packet design that we can use even after CNY. Spend at least $150 on any Lancôme products at the brand’s counters to get this gift with purchase.
Punny packets with Chinese idioms and a play on words. Cute. Customers can buy a packet of six red packets for $2 with any purchase of White Rabbit merch at pop-up at VivoCity Central Court Atrium (until Jan 20).
