Chinese New Year 2023: Luxury gifts for the Year of the Rabbit

Posted On By admin

Lunar New Year – also known as Chinese New Year – will be celebrated on 22 January 2023, ushering in the Year of the Rabbit. Thought within Chinese culture to be the luckiest of the 12 animals of the zodiac, the rabbit is also synonymous with beauty, elegance and peace, with those born in the Year of the Rabbit considered artistic and calm.

The perfect animal, then, for luxury brands to take as inspiration for a selection of gorgeous limited edition gifts to celebrate Chinese New Year. From show-stopping Metiers d’Art timepieces to fine jewellery and some beautiful additions to your bathroom cabinet, these are the best luxury gifts for Chinese New Year 2023.

Chantecaille Year of the Rabbit Bio Lifting Serum+

To celebrate Lunar New Year, French skincare brand Chantecaille has given its best-selling Bio Lifting Serum+ a festive upgrade. Offered in a deluxe bottle which is 20ml larger than the standard size, this limited edition version has been reimagined in red and gold for good luck (but still packs in the same powerful active ingredients).
