    Perfect Wedding Gift – A Box Full Of Happiness

    Summer is definitely a wedding season! I have three wedding events on my calendar through the Summer and Fall – two are girl friends’ and one from the family. About the wedding gift, I never want to send a gift card – because everyone will choose the easiest way to buy a gift card. But I am not saying gift card isn’t good, your friends just need something more unique and they can remember your sweetness afterwards.

    For June 23rd, my girl friend Miss L’s wedding, I have prepared a great gift for her and I am a hundred percent confident about this lovely gift that she would love love love it. But now, let me talk about Miss L first. She is an American girl grew up in Long Island. She is very beautiful with long blonde hair, she’s tall, skinny… When the first time I met her through our common friend, I made my mind to make friends with her. The most wonderful thing is she speaks perfect Mandarin since she lived in China for work for a couple of years. She knows I come from China and we talked a lot in Mandarin! Not only about the language, she also knows very well about Chinese culture.

    So in her wedding, I will surprise her with the perfect gift – A Box Full Of Happiness from RITUALS. This box is from the collection named Happy Buddha.

    What is Happy Buddha?

    Inspired by the ancient monk whose legendary smile brought happiness wherever he went, The Ritual of Happy Buddha collection was created to boost body and soul with a burst of positivity. Infused with Sweet Orange and Cedar Wood, every product in the relaunched home and body collection puts a radiant smile on your face. Discover this uplifting collection and spread joy wherever you go and whatever you do.

    Every Chinese people should have a big influence by Laughing Buddha, at least my generation. I remember when I grew up, every single my family member’s home has a statue or painting of this culture symbol. We believe he can bring the good luck, happiness and healthiness to our lives. We really believe in this and it has been a long history in Eastern culture for thousands of years.

    I am so surprise to see RITUALS has this lovely collection and it means a lot to the people who love oriental cultures.

    The reason it can be a perfect wedding gift is because the knot on the package is a sign of marriage in China. It combines two same words together to be a new non-existing word. The two words is in Mandarin meaning happiness. So the new word is double happiness. Isn’t it so cute?

    Let’s see what are inside the box?
