Full moon gift

Normally, there will be a full moon party when a new born baby reaches one month old. It is either having a buffet at home (with food provided by a caterer or cooked at home) or booking a few tables at a Chinese restaurant for the relatives and friends to look at the new-born baby. For couples who are busy, they will go for the pre-packed full moon gifts and deliver the gifts to their relatives and friends.

We decided on the third option since we did not want any mess in the house if we celebrated at home and I thought it would be difficult for me to breastfeed our new-born if we were to choose the Chinese restaurant option.

Most of the pre-packed full moon gifts that we saw were pretty standard. The traditional packages mainly include red eggs, ‘kuih ang ku’, chicken, pickled ginger, and ‘nasi kunyit’. The better one comes with cakes or tarts. We were thinking of Ayamas until we came across a unique full moon package in a parenting magazine.

Therefore, we went to the OneJoy website to take a look at their packages. The package comes with a nice box pre-filled with certain items such as two red eggs, chocolates, candies, lollipops, biscuits or even a cute teddy bear. There were five box designs to choose from. It is also comes with a personalised card where we can provide the baby’s information such as baby photo, name, date of birth, length, weight and other personalised messages. Surprisingly, the cost of the package is more or less the same as other traditional packages. Another good thing about this package is that we don’t have to rush to deliver all the boxes to our relatives and friends because the contents are non-perishable, unlike the food in traditional packages which must be delivered fresh.

Our relatives and friends loved the full moon gift. At least the gift is different from the norm, making it a talking point and the box can be used as storage.
