Greetings to show your loved ones you care this Chinese New Year

It’s the most anticipated holiday of the year when families gather and the feasting begins as friends and family share good tidings for the year ahead.There’s nothing like Chinese New Year to put a cheer in our hearts, but have you ever found yourself stumped at what to say in face of your loved ones? Sometimes, the toughest people to express our love towards are the ones closest to us, but fret not. BRAND'S® has your back.

Arm yourselves with these symbolic well-wishes for your family and relatives this auspicious holiday. To help you express your appreciation with a thoughtful gift, we also have just the thing for you—read on!

龙马精神(lóng mǎ jīng shén); To wish for someone to be hale and hearty, and full of vitality.

It’s almost a universal culture to send your well-wishes to the elderly before anyone else, and what better greeting to light up your grandparents’ faces than a wish for them to live healthily and heartily? With age catching up with them, it’s easy for your grandparents to feel the effects of their bodies and minds deteriorating, but it doesn’t have to. Bring your sincerity a notch higher and give them the gift of health with BRAND'S® Essence of Chicken with Cordyceps. A perfect supplement for the elderly, it is formulated with principal herbs, cordyceps and astragalus, together with essence of chicken—all known to help maintain a sharp mind and healthy body.

青春常駐(qīng chūn cháng zhù); To wish for someone to stay young and youthful.

Another group of people most prominent during Chinese New Year is the pack of overly-concerned aunties that have a million questions to ask—like ‘Why haven’t you got a girlfriend?’ or ‘Why are you getting skinnier?’But let’s face it, in some ways, their probing personalities make you feel at home. For them, a simple greeting of youthfulness paired with BRAND'S® Bird’s Nest with Rock Sugar is sure to win their hearts. Packed with protein, essential amino acids, carbohydrates and minerals to nourish the body and skin, pamper your aunties with a little sweetness this Chinese New Year.

精灵活泼(jīng líng huó pō); To wish for someone to grow up actively and healthily.

If you’re married, you might also find yourself having to give out red packets to the younger cousins or nieces and nephews. There’s nothing more important for a child than to grow up with a bright and lively spirit—yes, not even academic grades—and BRAND'S® Essence of Chicken makes a thoughtful gift to help fulfil that wish. Not only does it help combat mental fatigue in the midst of their studies, it also provides the nutrients they need to live a bubbly and active lifestyle full of adventures!

福寿安康 (fú shòu ān kāng); To wish someone longevity and health.

Last but not least, we often go around sending well-wishes to all our relatives but forget that the most important people we should verbalise our care towards are our own parents. For the countless sacrifices they have made to nurture us through our childhood, honour them with a wish that symbolises your concern for their well-being and the gift of health with BRAND'S® Bird’s Nest Sugar Free. Time for you to take care of them for a change!

At the end of the day, these greetings are merely words. What’s most important is spending quality time with your loved ones and the sincerity behind every wish. Chinese New Year represents a new beginning, so start the year by showing your appreciation and love for them. Take the time and effort to invest in these relationships and nourish the ties that matter, whether with a pack of BRAND'S® or simply vocalising your well-wishes. After all, a family bond is unlike any other.
