2. Decorate with festive sets of couplets, calendar and red packets

The new year is often a really busy time, what with spring cleaning, cooking and getting new outfits. That probably means a last-minute rush to get your decorations and red packets in order. To avoid having to jostle with the crowds at Chinatown, pick up one of these festive sets instead.

3. Match with your loved ones in tiger couple tees

The CNY festivities are often marked with new clothes and kaypoh relatives asking when you’re getting married. This year, walk in with your partner in matching couple tees to at least get them off your back about still being single.

Plus, with Valentine’s Day happening just a couple of weeks later, these tees will be both fashion statement and declaration of love between you and bae. And if you’re still single, that’s alright too. They’re available in a whole range of sizes, so even the whole family can be in matching outfits for the season.

4. Collect tiger figurine blind boxes

If you know someone born in the year of the tiger, these CNY-themed figurines will make an auspicious gift for them. The tiny striped feline collectibles are sold individually as blind boxes, so what you get is completely random. But Taobao has options for those looking to collect full sets as well.

There are display frames too for those looking to have these as decor for the new year. Otherwise, these tigers are just as cute displayed on their own on a coffee table or even a car dashboard.

5. Decorate living areas with tiger rugs

When it comes to CNY decorations, most of it centres around hangings on the walls or displayed neatly on coffee tables. But with these tiger rugs, your floors will be spruced up for the new year as well.
