How fantastic is this? Best Buy is now carrying Chinese Lunar New Year Gift Cards to give to your loved ones. I think this is a great idea. I love it when companies feel inspired by all types of holidays and offer new ways for us to give to our friends and family.
I know for me I am going to utilize this new card by Best Buy to gift to some of my family instead of the traditional Red Envelope (hóngbāo in Mandarin, angbao in Taiwanese (also Singaporean Hokkien), angpau in Min Nan, lai see (利市/利是) in Cantonese, lì xì in Vietnamese and sae bae don (세뱃돈/歲拜돈) in Korean.) with money in them. I know my kids love getting the Red Envelopes with money in them but for the older kids and adults I think they would love to receive a Best Buy Gift Card and especially since it is designed for the Lunar New Year.
Best Buy :Best Buy supports events which they believe are of importance to employees, customers, and communities. The upcoming Lunar New Year is one of those important celebrations.
For Asians all around the world, including Asian-Americans, Lunar New Year not only celebrates the beginning of the year but also the ending of winter and the anticipated arrival of spring. It is one of the most important holidays celebrated in countries such as China, Tibet, Korea, and Vietnam.
This upcoming year, Lunar New Year, which is based on the phases of the moon, falls on January 31st 2014 of our Gregorian calendar. Best Buy is helping celebrate the event with an Asian-inspired eGiftcard, available for purchase or gifting from BestBuy.com.
