Chinese New Year Gift Guide

07-02-2013

first


Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. The celebrations go on for 15 days. Little red envelopes are passed on from married couples or the elderly to juniors or young couples. The amount of money in the red envelopes can be anything, but it has to be even numbers. In addition to the envelopes, it is also a tradition to exchange gifts.


The star of this year's Chinese Zodiac is the Snake. The Snake symbolises intelligence, gracefulness and materialism. Snakes like to surround themselves with the finest things life has to offer... So keep this in mind when shopping for New Year gifts...

I picked several items from our Armour Collection RED as well as from the Veronika Isis Collection, both made from snake-embossed materials and exotic leathers.

The Armour Collection was inspired by the legendary knights who protected European's royal nobility in Medieval times. Its design derives from their traditional ornately scaled plate armours. The collection's timeless Visetos material also features a unique python pattern on exotic leather, embellished with a sprinkling of gold studs. This is a really bold, unique and individual collection, perfect to celebrate the intelligent and refined SnakeIt includes a variety of accessories such as pouches of varied styles, an interchangeable drawstring-shopper, purses, bracelets and belts expressing a passion for opulence.

The Veronika Isis Collection is one of my personal favourite. Inspired by legendary Queens and ideal for the most daring fashionistas, it exudes sophistication, majesty with a hefty dose of glamour. Handcrafted with snake-embossed materials, the softest lambskin and refined hardware, it is available in muted hues coupled with daring colour pops.

And now, let me help you pick a bag for each of your loved ones...

fashionista

We all know someone who loves fashion more than anything else and owns enough clothing to fill a whole department store. So what do you give the fashionista with perfect tastes? A bag that will surprise and delight her with its originality.

jetset

When you are constantly on the go, you need to think about being practical but also stylish. So this Armour Collection backpack is the perfect companion for your beloved jet setter.

rock

Always at concerts, always the coolest, wearing the edgiest clothes - the rock chick is the envy of all her friends. Help her perfect her attire with this wrist band.

night

Nothing quite like a touch of sparkle in the night. The Night Owl in your life will be overjoyed when you give her this wonderful Veronika Isis bag. There won't be another one quite like her on the dance floor.

geek

There isn't a tablet the Chic Geek doesn't own. In fact, she owns three of everything, just in case. She will certainly need something to carry all her tech gadgets in style.

organised

If there ever was a prize for the best organised handbag, your friend would get it. Everything has a place and a pouch, so she can never have too many wallets, card holders etc by her side.
