Mid-Autumn 2022

The Ultimate Guide to Mooncakes Gifting and Gorgeous Packaging

Mid Autumn Festival falls on 10 September this year. It’s a traditional annual affair where friends and family enjoy these sweet baked or snowskin mooncakes with hot Chinese tea or perhaps some with cocktails or champagne. The festival celebrates the end of the autumn harvest. But in Singapore, companies and consumers alike find a reason to gift people who matter beautifully packaged mooncakes in appreciation of the friendship.

This year, we spotted some interesting packaging as brands are looking to extend the life of these packaging beyond just housing mooncakes.

A Si Chuan Dou Hua Mid Autumn

Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant continues to offer a selection of low-sugar mooncakes so you can enjoy them without guilt. This year’s design takes a leaf from nature with an eco-chic packaging to encourage usage all-year round. The carrier this year is a beautiful wicker woven tote bag that can be repurposed as a carrier. The mooncakes will be packaged by beneficiaries from Extra*Ordinary People, as part of Si Chuan Dou Hua’s inclusive hiring efforts for persons with disabilities.

These low-sugar mooncakes are already on sale up to 10 September 2022. Prices start from S$35+, and you have the option to purchase in sets of two or four pieces with four flavours to select from. If you purchase the four-piece set, they will be packaged in a drawer box that you can use to store jewellery or other smaller items in the future. In one of the drawer boxes is a premium Pu-erh tea cake that is perfect to end off the sweet treats. The smaller two-piece box can act as an elegant tissue box holder.

By the way, the Lychee Paste with Rose baked mooncake makes a comeback this year since its debut last year. This is my favourite baked mooncake this year, with light floral tones and sweet lychees. A new flavour is the Nyonya Brown Sugar with Shredded Coconut mooncake.
