25 Unique Lunar New Year Gifts Ideas To Honour The Year Of The Rabbit

January 16, 2023

2023 marks the Year of the Rabbit, the fourth animal in the Chinese zodiac that appears once every 12 years, and is presumed to be the luckiest of all animals. Since the Year of the Rabbit is all about hope and prosperity, we rounded up 25 rabbit-themed and Lunar New Year-inspired gifts (featuring brand new collections) to help you give the most valuable gift there is this year. –Christina Armanious

Tory Burch Mini Monogram Embroidered Rabbit Bag. One of our favourites from Tory Burch’s Lunar New Year collection, this monogram crescent bag is embroidered with pixelated rabbits and includes a red interior printed pocket. This bag also comes with adjustable and removable straps for versatility.

Alexander Wang Fortune Cookie Earrings. These shiny, gold-plated brass earrings in the shape of a fortune cookie are almost too realistic not to crack open. Widely recognized as the symbol for good fortune, these earrings are a paragon for festive Lunar New Year accessories.

Justine Clenquet Gold & Red Bracelet. This handcrafted cable and cup chain bracelet is plated with 24K gold and palladium-plated brass. Its festive red and gold colour pairing make it a beautiful, dainty accessory to wear during festive celebrations and otherwise. 

Sarah-Linda Forrer White & Gold Spoon & Bowl Set. This authentic tableware set comes with a porcelain spoon and bowl, delicately hand-painted with 24K gold. It is the perfect luxury piece to glam up your dinner table for Lunar New Year feasts. 

Coach Lunar New Year Mini Wallet. This mini Coach wallet, plastered with pink rabbits, comes with a detachable chain, giving you the option to wear it crossbody or over the shoulder. 

Creed Lunar New Year Perfume Coffret Set. Creed’s exclusive Eau de Parfum set contains three signature fragrances encased in a thoughtfully designed floral motif box. The two rabbits reaching for each other in the centre of the box symbolise harmony and unity, two qualities associated with the Lunar New Year. 

Anthropologie Rabbit Wall Hook. This rabbit wall hook is the perfect combination of modern and festive. It is a unique homeware piece that can be used for hanging things, or merely for wall decor. 

Lululemon Lunar New Year Yoga Set. Lululemon re-released a series of fan-favourites with limited edition prints inspired by the Year of The Rabbit. One of these items includes a dark red workout yoga set with a foil pattern.

Bang & Olufsen Lunar New Year Headphones and Bluetooth Speaker. These limited edition red and gold headphones and speakers are inspired by the colours of the ancient Silk Road in China. Red is traditionally associated with good fortune, joy and fire, while gold symbolises prosperity, wealth and light. The handle straps on the speaker also include a Chinese knot, another symbol for good fortune and protection. 

Tory Burch Rabbit Ladybug Sneaker. These platform, retro style Lunar New Year sneakers are designed to evoke the feeling of good fortune. On the bottom of the shoe, the brand’s iconic T monogram is dotted along the soles to resemble the spots of a ladybug – a sign of good luck. The rabbit motif on the side of the shoe is intended to add an additional layer of good fortune to the person wearing the sneakers.

 Yuzefi Suede Mini Fortune Cookie Bag. This bag’s unique fortune cookie shape symbolises luck, wisdom and fate; its striking silhouette makes it a rather unique gift for the Lunar New Year.  

Tory Burch Rabbit Necklace. Another featured item from Tory Burch’s Lunar New Year collection, this layered gold necklace includes a pixelated rabbit charm with a cultured pearl, dainty enough for everyday wear. 

Natalia Criado Gold Stone Cutlery Set and Gold Tazine Stone Cup. These standout homeware pieces––a gold-brushed metal cutlery set with red accents, and a gold-tone metal cup with a red volcanic stone handle––are unique gifts to spice up someone’s kitchen for the Lunar New Year. The red and gold are also reminiscent of the most prominent celebratory colours.  

Limited Edition Aritzia Lunar New Year Illustrated Crewneck. Aritzia commissioned four illustrators of Chinese descent––Vanilla Chi, Zila Li, Xiao Mei and Shuhua Xiong––to design four limited edition crewnecks, each one inspired by artistic influences in their personal lives. 

Anthropologie Gilded Hare Table Lamp. This charming lamp features a gold-leaved rabbit peeking out from underneath and on top of a lampshade, and is sure to be a unique add-on to anyone’s tableside.  

Loveness Lee Rabbit Chinese Zodiac Necklace. This 18K gold-plated silver rabbit necklace is the best way to honour the Chinese zodiac’s luckiest animal. Wearing it on your neck will ensure you are armoured with good fortune and longevity.

Coach Lunar New Year Rabbit Tote. This signature Coach tote bag features a twist on the company’s famous horse-drawn carriage logo, cleverly modifying it to a rabbit-drawn carriage.

YanYan Bunny Embroidered Wool Blend Sweater. Made in China and designed by two Hong-Kong based designers, Suzzie Chung and Phyllis Chan (the women behind the premium knitwear company YanYan), this playful mélange sweater is a fun take on the Year of The Rabbit. The sweater features a hand-embroidered white rabbit that distinctly stands out from its surrounding colourful embroidery.

Jill Sander Rabbit Shirt Dress. This elegant rabbit print dress, combined with its asymmetrical button alignment and unique pointed collars at the front and back of the dress, creates a striking silhouette. It’s a stellar wardrobe piece to honour the Year of the Rabbit, even after Lunar New Year celebrations have subsided. 

Kate Spade Lunar New Year Bunny Ring Stand. A gold and shiny bunny-shaped ring stand to help prevent dropping your phone or cracking your screen.
