Chinese New Year is only a few days away!

If you’re doing some last minute shopping to prepare to host your guests, we’ve got a delicious makeover tip for you.

Bo Ting – a Taobao vendor – is selling blankets with prints inspired by potatoes, steaks and beer. The quilts aren’t very thick so you won’t feel too wrapped up while the AC is on full blast.

From slabs of raw salmon, to bizarre watermelon halves filled with seeds, these blankets will definitely be a mouthwatering addition to your bedrooms.

And a great conversation starter for your extended family, when they come over to bai nian.

3. Steak

There’s nothing like well-marbled steak, cut into a perfect portion, lightly rubbed with salt before being seared on a piping hot grill. Now you can sleep with the steak of your dreams thanks to this blanket.

Once you bring guests over, we bet that their mouths will water thanks to this giant slab of glistening beef.

4. Beer

Those who love to drown their sorrows or have fun with a bottle of beer can now sleep in one too!

While it might contain zero alcohol, it’ll fit right in for those with a taste for beer. We highly recommend it for your friends recovering from a breakup or those who want to celebrate the Chinese New Year with a wild party.

5. Lobster

Lobster is a typical Chinese New Year staple.

For starters, one of the Chinese characters in lobster (龙虾 lóngxiā) is ‘dragon’ (龙), so it could represent strength and good luck.

While the blanket might not have a lobster’s very pronounced and succulent taste, at least you’ll be reminded of those flavours every time you go to bed.

6. Ice Cream Sundae

These ice cream blankets are perfect for those with a sweet tooth!

The sundae consists of 4 flavours, reminiscent of an ice kachang’s colour palette.

We think it’s a perfect remedy for when your mum asks you not to eat anything sweet, right before going to bed.

7. Dried Fish

If you want to keep unwanted visitors out, then check this out. The pair of dried fish blankets could turn heads and make visitors have second thoughts about entering your room.

Best of all, it’s not as slimy and smelly like its organic counterpart. Have fun sleeping with the fishes!

8. Watermelon

Watermelon symbolises prosperity and its seeds signify abundance.

According to Chinese food symbolism, watermelon seeds could represent having a large number of children.

We’ve all met the typical Asian parents and grandparents who are gungho about having more sons, daughters and grandkids.

If you feel the same way or want more nieces, you might want to drop the not so subtle hint to your daughter-in-laws, with a watermelon blanket.

9. Salmon

We all love succulent slices of salmon in yusheng platters.

For starters, yusheng is the the centrepiece of the Chinese New Year meal and it’s designed to bring in prosperity, happiness, success, good luck & more.

If heaps of raw salmon in your yusheng servings aren’t enough for you this CNY, why not consider becoming one with the fish — in your bed and in your dreams.
