The Lucky New Year Gift Box
Celebrate the new year with a little luck on your side! This gift box is filled with snacks that are inspired by Oshogatsu, Japan's New Year, and the traditions that are part of the holiday.
Your Lucky New Year Gift Box contains one of each of the following:
1. New Year Dragon Furoshiki (1 Piece)
A traditional Japanese cloth that's used to wrap gifts, this cotton furoshiki comes in one of two patterns (you'll receive either at random), both with a dragon theme. One pattern features a carp and a dragon, which is said to be a grown-up form of a carp. Dragons are seen as a symbol of success, while the carp below is seen ascending to the sky to obtain a jewel that will make any wish come true.
The second pattern depicts a large, jeweled bead with charms, include a treasure chest (which is said to bring good fortune), and a crane and turtle (which symbolize longevity). The clouds in the four corners signify good fortune, while the blue ocean waves signify a peaceful year.
