Top Mid-Autumn Festival Delicacies
Mid-Autumn is also a celebration for the good harvest, so food is an important component for this week. The food is often given as offering to the moon, in thanksgiving for a bumpy harvest.
The meals may either be cooked at home or enjoyed at restaurants.
Moon cakes are the mist representative of the eighth lunar month tradition. This traditional Chinese pastry is made from wheat flour and has a sweet filling. Lotus seed mooncakes have a sugar and lotus seed powder filling.
These are a symbol of family reunion and are a classic must-give gift. They averagely cost about 100-200 yuan per box of about 8 pieces. If you cannot think of any gift ideas, this would be a lovely choice.
Some mooncakes may have an imprint of the jade rabbit. According to the Chinese, this is a rabbit that lives on the moon and is believed to be a companion of the moon goddess.
This is a nice drink to go with mooncakes.
Traditionally, the mooncakes are cut into slices that equal the number of people in the family. Since the mooncakes are too sweet, a cup of tea is a good match to ease the sweetness.
Tea is also recommended as a gift during the Mid-Autumn Festival as well as during other festivals.
Sending Fruit Gift Hampers
Sending fruit hampers has become a common habit in the corporate world. All sorts of fruits are ripe during the Mid-Autumn Festival and the Chinese believe that it’s healthy to eat fruits. These hampers may either contain dried fruits or fresh fruits and are available in different sizes to suit different business budgets. Some of the finest fruits to include in a fruit gift hamper are:
- Fruits such as persimmon and the star fruit are symbolic of good luck
- The pomelo is round in shape just like the full moon and represents blessings
- Eating pear during the festival means the family won’t part and will forever be united. Pears are also known as “the fruit of fruits.” They’re a natural emulsifier to fat and are, therefore, great for pairing with mooncakes
The goal is to give a gift that thanks your clients for doing business with you and make sure that you remain at the top of the list for their business in the future. Apart from sending fruit hampers, you could also consider sending gourmet baskets, wine gift baskets, chocolate gift towers, etc. If the company cannot accept all these baskets, give them alternative gifts such as calendars, pens, or key chains with your company logo to show your appreciation.
