What to get for my friends and family this Mid-Autumn Festival?

The Mid-Autumn Festival is a traditional Chinese celebration where people exchange gifts with their friends, families, relatives, business partners, and colleagues. The traditional mid-autumn festival falls on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month which is their usual harvest time. Families make delicious meals to enjoy together as a part of the celebrations.

Things to get your friends and family for the Mid-Autumn Festival

Over the years, rich mid-autumn festival customs and traditions have stood the test of time. Certain foods and fruits have to be present in the gift hampers given because they hold a special meaning during this time of year. Let’s take a look at some of the items that you can get your loved ones this Mid-Autumn Festival:

  • Mooncakes: The classic must-give gift

Mooncakes are traditional Chinese pastries that have a thin tender skin enveloping a sweet, dense feeling. They can either be made at home or bought at the store. So many varieties are put on display in stores as the festival approaches. Mooncake fillings may include lotus seed paste, sweet bean paste, egg yolk, and more modern flavors include chocolate, roast pork, ice cream, etc.

The mooncake gift hamper is usually enough as a gift and that’s why lots of people give a box of mooncakes as gifts during the Mid-Autumn Festival. 

  • Tea 

This beverage is a great accompaniment to mooncakes as it helps ease the sweetness of the mooncakes.

For the longest time, tea has always been considered a healthy drink so most households make it almost daily and serve it to guests. This means that you can gift people tea not only during the Mid-Autumn festival but during other festivals too.

  • Fermented wine

Fermented wine with osmanthus flowers has a long history in China. The Chinese started drinking this type of wine more than 2000 years ago. Enjoying this drink with your friends and family is symbolic of a happy life. During the festival, the osmanthus flowers are in full bloom.

Alternatively, you can give red wine or champagne instead of the traditional fermented wine.

  • Fruit hampers

A fruit hamper full of fresh fruit is a very healthy and common option during the Mid-Autumn festival. During this time of year, most fruits are ripe and ready to harvest. 

Some of the common fruits that go into a fruit basket include pears, grapes, grapefruits, and pomegranates. Some of these seasonal fruits have good meaning. For example, eating a pear which is a mid-autumn fruit during the festival means that your family won’t be apart. 

  • Fresh hairy crabs

If you’re thinking about getting someone a gourmet hamper, you can include hairy crabs in it. This special seasonal delicacy has tender meat with a high nutritious value and has a delicious taste.

  • Organic rice and oil

These two are some of the most common ingredients that the Chinese use to prepare their day-to-day meals. Their organic variants are great options for people seeking a more healthy lifestyle.

  • Pumpkins

Traditionally, pumpkins were eaten by poor families who couldn’t afford mooncakes. Over time as the tradition got passed down, it was believed that eating pumpkins during the Mid-Autumn festival brought good health.

  • River snails

River snails are an indispensable Mid-Autumn festival food, especially for people in Guangzhou. Eating river snails is believed to brighten the eyes.

They’re usually cooked with medicinal herbs to dispel their unpleasant odor.

  • Duck 

Ducks may be cooked in different ways and enjoyed with loved ones during the Mid-Autumn festival. For example, it may be salted and baked with osmanthus flowers. This recipe is popular among people of East China’s Jiangsu Province.

  • Taro 

Taro is a type of starchy root vegetable that resembles arrowroots that provides very good nutrition. Eating taro during the Mid-Autumn festival is believed to dispel any bad luck and bring wealth, prosperity, and good luck.
