    Nowadays, they replace the old gourds with modern wine bottles with famous brands coming from both local and all over the world while in the past, wine is kept in pottery gourds. However, they still preserve the meaning of wine as the present of the upcoming year.

    Wine is highly appreciated by Vietnamese people as it takes so much time for wine to ferment and distil. Moreover, once drinking wine, people can feel energetic and warm, which are definitely their wishes for the New Year. It is a good idea to send your Vietnamese business partner a gift basket with branded wine. It is high time to further enhance your bonds.

    Spring is the season of the brightest and most effulgent colors. Especially, in Asia’s beliefs, red is considered good luck, prosperity, joyfulness and contentment. We can see the red color everywhere, from the ornaments, lucky envelopes, to the clothes of the elderly on the first days of New Year.

    Coming to Vietnam during the Tet, tourists can see the whole streets covered with the color of red. Whichever gifts you plan to give, place a priority on red and yellow and avoid dark colours. For example, if you want to buy children new clothes, try to pick the most bright coloured ones.
