The Year of the Ox is fast approaching with Chinese New Year officially falling on the 12th of February. Apart from the obvious red packets, gift-giving is a huge part of the celebration. Albeit a Zoom celebration this year, there are plenty of Chinese New Year food gift ideas you can get delivered straight to both yours and your loved ones’ doorstep. Staying at home doesn’t mean missing out on the festivities!

Crosstown Doughnut may not come up first thing in mind as a Chinese New Year food gift delivery but, this year, they are joining the festivities with their limited CNY Pandan doughnut. It features their signature sourdough, infused with fresh pandan leaves and filled with coconut cream custard, finished with a vibrant pandan icing and desiccated coconut.
Talk about the perfect gift to impress, Biscuit Boutique has absolutely nailed it. These Chocolate Biscuits (vegan-friendly as well) are easily the most artistic-looking and prettiest edible gift to send to your family for celebrating Chinese New Year.
They are most known for their mille crepe. But this Chinese New Year, Sakurado is offering a galore of CNY-themed desserts as well, including golden covered dark Belgium chocolate coins and nuggets, lucky parcels (decorated sponge cakes), and traditional Chinese sticky rice cakes (red bean/brown sugar/Chinese dates).
Yee Kwan Ice Cream
Artisanal ice cream with Far East-inspired flavours? Yes, please! Think of the likes of Chocolate Miso Ice Cream, Egg Custard Tart Ice Cream, Red Thai Tea Ice Cream, Black Sesame and many more. They are based in Sheffield but have recently launched a nationwide delivery service
I’ve absolutely loved their roast duck meal kit and their Hainanese chicken rice. For this Chinese New Year, Rice Guys has launched a few limited CNY treats, including peanut cookies and pineapple tarts! In addition, they have also paired up with Sambal Shiok to create a CNY Prosperity Toss (Yee Sang)!
Laduree’s macaroons always make a great treat. For Chinese New Year, they are offering a limited-edition Spring Festival raspberry macaroons & gold-chocolate macaroons. An exclusive gift box is also available that’s decorated with Chinese calligraphy and symbols of the Ox.
Tea is highly embedded in Chinese culture. Popular tea brand, Whittard, has launched a few Chinese New Year flavour blends, including the Lucky Lychee, Milk Oolong, and Coconut Oolong. They come in striking red-and-gold packaging, which couldn’t be more perfect for lunar new year celebrations!
