Lunar New Year is a time of joy and celebration, hope and aspirations, gathering of friends and family, festive presents to gift and of course indulgent meals to ring in the new year. This year, The Peninsula Boutique has prepared gourmet gift sets inspired by the luxury hotel’s famous interiors to share and to give. The latticework uses intricate geometry to construct the auspicious packaging, and also resembles mazes in honour of the Year of the Rat.
Whether it is to enjoy with the family or corporate gifting for colleagues and clients, The Peninsula Boutique has been catering to Hong Kong’s biggest celebration for decades. The carefully curated gourmet delights with the city’s most sought-after New Year hampers and Spring Calendars to serve all forms of festivities.
Much like the beloved Christmas Advents, The Peninsula Boutique Spring Calendar (HK$698) features numbered boxes to be opened each day starting from the first day to the 15th day of the Lunar New Year. Find traditional Chinese sweet and savoury treats, tea and other seasonal delights.
Lunar New Year Puddings
Arguably one of the most auspicious dishes of the New Year, the fresh glutinous puddings are essential to start the new zodiac cycle. Alongside the original flavour, the traditional legacy gets an aromatic update with The Peninsula’s signature Jasmine Tea Blend. Available individually (HK$198) or in an assorted gift box containing both variations (HK$388).
Visiting friends and family means you can’t go empty handed. Whether it’s their bestselling Butter egg rolls (HK$185), Almond puffs (HK$230), Sesame cookies (HK$150), or even their Gourmet sauces flavoured cookies (HK$398) — think XO chilli sauce and shrimp paste type savoury biscuit; The Peninsula Boutique bakery is always a joy to give and receive.
