Whether you’re welcoming the goddess Lakshmi into your home and ushering in a year of prosperity, celebrating the return of Rama and Sita after a long exile, worshipping the goddess Kali’s destruction of evil forces or Lord Krishna’s victory over evil; Diwali celebrates the triumph of good over evil, and that celebration is universal. Times of celebration are when we truly feel the value of a community, and there’s nothing that can make us miss the good old days, pre-COVID-19 and social distancing than the festival season. This Diwali, many of us won’t have the opportunity to spend it with our loved ones or celebrate the same way we used to, but that shouldn’t change the significance of the day and what it means to us. The triumph of good over evil, and light over darkness, isn’t always straightforward or easy, and the COVID-19 crisis has only served to remind us that the battle to see good conquer evil is in our hands. When it comes to ensuring the safety of ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities, taking steps to follow public health guidelines, including social distancing and other necessary precautions, is a personal responsibility. In Sanskrit, Diwali translates to a row of lights. It is a fitting name, given that there’s no celebration that lights up the world quite like Diwali. At a time of social distancing, global uncertainty, and widespread anxiety, however, it can be difficult to conceive of new ways to celebrate the festival of light while protecting the health of your loved ones and the wider community. Finding ways to connect in spite of social distancing can be challenging, especially if you’re used to travelling to be with your family during Diwali. Being away from your family and friends is a difficult adjustment, especially during times of celebration. This doesn’t mean, however, that you need to spend the festival season feeling lonely or alone. Video calling your family, making your favourite food, sending your loved ones gifts to show them you’re thinking of them this Diwali, or even lighting your own row of lights will help you celebrate the festival of light despite these unusual circumstances. The challenges you’re forced to contend with, this year, may not feel quite as noble as fighting off evil, and your separation from home may not be as long as a fourteen-year exile. Regardless, every little step counts—stay connected but stay safe. No matter how dark Diwali in 2020 may seem to you, let this season remind you of all that is good in the world. If you find yourself away from your family during this time, reach out to them and remember that despite being unable to be with them in person, you can still celebrate together. Social distancing aside, your golden Diwali can be just as bright when you give the gift of gold safely.

Ramadan 2020 will certainly go down in history. For the first time, during this holy month, we can no longer open our homes, families can’t come together in quite the same way, and pilgrimages can’t be embarked on. Ramadan is about faith, prayer, fasting, reflection, and community. It is the most important month in the Muslim calendar and holds significant meaning for all those who celebrate it. It’s such a vital part of the year that its personal and spiritual significance cannot be overstated.  Ramadan is characterised by the generosity that is shared, with many gathering to break fast and inviting guests over for iftar. During Ramadan 2020, these practices are unsafe and instead, we have had to turn inwards, to our homes and ourselves, to mark this holy month. In spite of these circumstances, however, Muslims around the world haven’t let COVID-19 get them down. Ramadan 2020 may have us all confined to our homes, but this has become an opportunity for a display of faith, a time for spiritual growth, and the creation of a community that embraces the true significance of Ramadan, even in the face of adversity  Despite social distancing, lockdowns, and quarantine, the most sacred month of the year in Islamic culture has brought with it a reminder of the unity of the human spirit. While abiding by social distancing guidelines, Muslims have taken to virtual gatherings to celebrate together as a community - staying together while staying apart.  Social distancing doesn’t have to mean isolation, and Muslims are teaching the world right now how to keep our spirits up and find inner peace and spiritual growth while demonstrating that the strength of a community is not limited by physical barriers.  Whether this means decorating their homes, digital gifting, connecting to the extended family through video conferencing, virtual iftars or participating in the many virtual spaces created by Islamic institutions and foundations, this has become a time to reaffirm faith and maintain a positive perspective.  While Ramadan 2020 is challenging the many personal traditions that have been established over time, being safe at home is paramount given the current health risks. One thing the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us is that while these disruptions have been inconvenient, heart-wrenching, and difficult to reconcile with, especially in times of celebration and during community events such as Ramadan, the repercussions of the alternative are much worse.  Generosity and community have been redefined, as the best way to serve each other and action good deeds has been to keep our distance; a personal sacrifice we’ve seen during this time. May the social distancing of Ramadan 2020 turn into a time of inner peace and contentment for everyone, the world over. Eid Mubarak and Happy Ramadan to all those celebrating!

It’s a strange time for the world. When most bad things happen we, as humans, instinctively turn to one another - our friends, our families, and especially our mothers, for comfort and safety. The crisis we face today means that this is no longer an option for us. The best and only way to really protect yourself and those you love is to physically distance yourself from them at this time. This Mother’s Day is not about hugging our mothers or gathering together to celebrate them for all that they are. Whether you’re lucky enough to be with your family at this time or forced to stay away, this day reminds us of just one aspect of motherhood - putting your loved ones first, however difficult it may be. This Mother’s Day is about remembering that a mother’s love transcends all - time, space, and distance. The love and support you’ve always felt from her never falters, even if you can’t be near her. If you aren’t able to hug your mother or share a laugh in person, on this day, remember that the bond you share knows no bounds. Your mother is your first protector, supporter, and carer - and that’s just in the first nine months of your existence; before you were even aware of her, before she even set eyes on you. That’s just the beginning of all that it means to be a mother. Mothers are constantly adapting to meet the needs of their children. For most, there is never a point in time when a mother will refuse to help. Mothers raise their children but they don’t stop being mothers once their children are grown. The magnitude of belief, support, and unconditional love she is capable of is impossible to quantify and is taken for granted far too often. As far as jobs go, being a mother is a thankless one. Mother’s Day, however, reminds you to remember everything your mother has done for you. Today is an opportunity to think back on the little things you might have overlooked, to appreciate the difficulties and the joys of motherhood, and realise that everything that you are would be impossible without her. For everyone struggling or feeling lonely at this time, remember that despite having to practise social distancing, you don’t have to feel lonely or isolated. Reach out and talk to the people you love, especially your mom. Whether that means simply walking into the next room, video calling them or talking to them on the phone, do it. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! There’s not enough gold in the world to repay you for all you do, but it's certainly worth a shot.

This Mother’s Day is not about hugging our mothers or gathering together to celebrate them for all that they are. Whether you’re lucky enough to be with your family at this time or forced to stay away, this day reminds us of just one aspect of motherhood - putting your loved ones first, however difficult it may be. This Mother’s Day is about remembering that a mother’s love transcends all - time, space, and distance. The love and support you’ve always felt from her never falters, even if you can’t be near her. If you aren’t able to hug your mother or share a laugh in person, on this day, remember that the bond you share knows no bounds. Your mother is your first protector, supporter, and carer - and that’s just in the first nine months of your existence; before you were even aware of her, before she even set eyes on you. That’s just the beginning of all that it means to be a mother. Mothers are constantly adapting to meet the needs of their children. For most, there is never a point in time when a mother will refuse to help. Mothers raise their children but they don’t stop being mothers once their children are grown. The magnitude of belief, support, and unconditional love she is capable of is impossible to quantify and is taken for granted far too often. As far as jobs go, being a mother is a thankless one. Mother’s Day, however, reminds you to remember everything your mother has done for you. Today is an opportunity to think back on the little things you might have overlooked, to appreciate the difficulties and the joys of motherhood, and realise that everything that you are would be impossible without her. For everyone struggling or feeling lonely at this time, remember that despite having to practise social distancing, you don’t have to feel lonely or isolated. Reach out and talk to the people you love, especially your mom. Whether that means simply walking into the next room, video calling them or talking to them on the phone, do it. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! There’s not enough gold in the world to repay you for all you do, but it's certainly worth a shot.

Another year, another Valentine’s Day around the corner. While this is an exciting occasion for many, there are plenty who dread cheesy romance - especially if you’re out of thoughtful and meaningful gift ideas, with the holiday just a few days away.

If you find traditional romantic gifts a little overdone, we’ve got a few ideas that will help you nail a gift that’s not just exciting but entirely out of the ordinary too.

Some of these are also excellent if you’ve decided to celebrate yourself this Valentine’s Day - it’s a great opportunity to honour a lifelong commitment to the one person you can truly count on: Yourself. 

Now of course many SendGold customers have already send the gift of gold this year - the perfect last minute gift - with their custom message and unique virtual gift card. But if you still need other ideas, here is a list we've come up with:

An Amazon gift card

Valentine’s gift-giving can be stressful because no matter how well you know someone, there may be certain things they don’t share with you - like their secret obsession with miniature Disney figurines, for instance.

Regardless of what they’re not telling you, Amazon gift cards are the perfect Valentine’s Day gift because you’re basically just sponsoring a shopping spree on one of the biggest e-commerce marketplaces on the internet. No biggie. 

A smart home assistant

Smart homes are all the rage these days and if you’re looking for a gift that will add real value to your partner’s (or your) life, a smart home assistant is a surefire choice.

Not only can these order you an Uber, place your go-to order on the Domino’s app, and wake you up on time, but soon, you will be able to have entire conversations with sophisticated assistants like Alexa.

The best part about buying one of these devices is that they’re available at different price points and come with incredible features - did you know that they can even double as powerful Bluetooth speakers?

Digital gold

They say diamonds are forever but few naturally-occurring commodities like gold have retained value over thousands of years and continue to be highly relevant, high-value investments.

If you want to be more creative than simply gifting your partner a gold chain or any type of gold jewellery, digital gold is a great way to make an investment on behalf of your loved one this Valentine’s Day - it doesn’t get any more non-romantic, yet deeply meaningful, than that!

Digital gold also happens to be a great gift to give yourself - one that will bail you out on a rainy day, especially given that gold only continues to become more scarce and is increasing in value.

On our app, SendGold, you can not just buy and wrap up your gift in exciting Valentine’s Day-inspired gift wrap, but you can also sell your gold just as instantly as you buy it!

A weighted blanket

Another extremely popular (and non-romantic) gift idea is the weighted blanket that has set the internet ablaze with its proven benefits for anxiety and sleep.

Basically, these fluffy duvets, built with innovative cooling technology, are weighted, which means that when you cover yourself in them, there’s a relaxing pressure placed wherever your body is covered.

Proven to improve sleep, these blankets can be bought at different weights for people of different ages, tailoring the weight of the blanket with the bodyweight of the person it’s bought for.

Blue-light-blocking glasses

If you or your partner are all about the latest tech goodies up for grabs, blue-light-blocking glasses are a high-tech way to commemorate one of the most romantic days of the year.

These are perfect for people who spend all day in front of a computer or peering at their smartphones (basically, all of us). The glasses filter harmful blue light that disrupts the body’s Circadian Rhythm, which ultimately throws your sleep cycle off-balance.

Celebrate Valentine’s day with fun gift ideas that are meaningful and non-romantic

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be celebrated the way society demands you to. On the 14th of February, gift your special someone something that’s not a framed photo, a spa treatment or jewellery and actually make them feel special with something that’s a little different.

If it’s just you this Valentine’s Day, our gift ideas are still amazing - you just get to enjoy all the benefits yourself. Head to SendGold to begin your Valentine’s Day shopping - gold is a gift that keeps giving.

Whether you’re welcoming the goddess Lakshmi into your home and ushering in a year of prosperity, celebrating the return of Rama and Sita after a long exile, worshipping the goddess Kali’s destruction of evil forces or Lord Krishna’s victory over evil; Diwali celebrates the triumph of good over evil, and that celebration is universal. Times of celebration are when we truly feel the value of a community, and there’s nothing that can make us miss the good old days, pre-COVID-19 and social distancing than the festival season. This Diwali, many of us won’t have the opportunity to spend it with our loved ones or celebrate the same way we used to, but that shouldn’t change the significance of the day and what it means to us. The triumph of good over evil, and light over darkness, isn’t always straightforward or easy, and the COVID-19 crisis has only served to remind us that the battle to see good conquer evil is in our hands. When it comes to ensuring the safety of ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities, taking steps to follow public health guidelines, including social distancing and other necessary precautions, is a personal responsibility. In Sanskrit, Diwali translates to a row of lights. It is a fitting name, given that there’s no celebration that lights up the world quite like Diwali. At a time of social distancing, global uncertainty, and widespread anxiety, however, it can be difficult to conceive of new ways to celebrate the festival of light while protecting the health of your loved ones and the wider community. Finding ways to connect in spite of social distancing can be challenging, especially if you’re used to travelling to be with your family during Diwali. Being away from your family and friends is a difficult adjustment, especially during times of celebration. This doesn’t mean, however, that you need to spend the festival season feeling lonely or alone. Video calling your family, making your favourite food, sending your loved ones gifts to show them you’re thinking of them this Diwali, or even lighting your own row of lights will help you celebrate the festival of light despite these unusual circumstances. The challenges you’re forced to contend with, this year, may not feel quite as noble as fighting off evil, and your separation from home may not be as long as a fourteen-year exile. Regardless, every little step counts—stay connected but stay safe. No matter how dark Diwali in 2020 may seem to you, let this season remind you of all that is good in the world. If you find yourself away from your family during this time, reach out to them and remember that despite being unable to be with them in person, you can still celebrate together. Social distancing aside, your golden Diwali can be just as bright when you give the gift of gold safely. Benefit from our exclusive Diwali offer, when you purchase gold virtually with SendGold this year! Receive a 2% top-up on the value of all the gold investments you make, right up until midnight on the 30th of November. Earn up to AUD 250 with no minimum purchase amount.

Ramadan 2020 will certainly go down in history. For the first time, during this holy month, we can no longer open our homes, families can’t come together in quite the same way, and pilgrimages can’t be embarked on. Ramadan is about faith, prayer, fasting, reflection, and community. It is the most important month in the Muslim calendar and holds significant meaning for all those who celebrate it. It’s such a vital part of the year that its personal and spiritual significance cannot be overstated.  Ramadan is characterised by the generosity that is shared, with many gathering to break fast and inviting guests over for iftar. During Ramadan 2020, these practices are unsafe and instead, we have had to turn inwards, to our homes and ourselves, to mark this holy month. In spite of these circumstances, however, Muslims around the world haven’t let COVID-19 get them down. Ramadan 2020 may have us all confined to our homes, but this has become an opportunity for a display of faith, a time for spiritual growth, and the creation of a community that embraces the true significance of Ramadan, even in the face of adversity  Despite social distancing, lockdowns, and quarantine, the most sacred month of the year in Islamic culture has brought with it a reminder of the unity of the human spirit. While abiding by social distancing guidelines, Muslims have taken to virtual gatherings to celebrate together as a community - staying together while staying apart.  Social distancing doesn’t have to mean isolation, and Muslims are teaching the world right now how to keep our spirits up and find inner peace and spiritual growth while demonstrating that the strength of a community is not limited by physical barriers.  Whether this means decorating their homes, digital gifting, connecting to the extended family through video conferencing, virtual iftars or participating in the many virtual spaces created by Islamic institutions and foundations, this has become a time to reaffirm faith and maintain a positive perspective.  While Ramadan 2020 is challenging the many personal traditions that have been established over time, being safe at home is paramount given the current health risks. One thing the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us is that while these disruptions have been inconvenient, heart-wrenching, and difficult to reconcile with, especially in times of celebration and during community events such as Ramadan, the repercussions of the alternative are much worse.  Generosity and community have been redefined, as the best way to serve each other and action good deeds has been to keep our distance; a personal sacrifice we’ve seen during this time. May the social distancing of Ramadan 2020 turn into a time of inner peace and contentment for everyone, the world over. Eid Mubarak and Happy Ramadan to all those celebrating!

Another year, another Valentine’s Day around the corner. While this is an exciting occasion for many, there are plenty who dread cheesy romance - especially if you’re out of thoughtful and meaningful gift ideas, with the holiday just a few days away.

With the Chinese New Year approaching rapidly, it’s no surprise that many of us have our heads filled with creamy-red hongbaos, steaming Chinese dumplings and sticky rice cakes. If you’re celebrating this holiday, however, your head is bound to be filled with another matter of equal importance - giving the perfect Chinese New Year gift.

If you’re stuck for ideas and don’t have the luxury of time, take a look at our gift-giving dos and don’ts for all you need to know before you pick the perfect gift. Good luck!

Do think about the colour of your gifts

Given the importance ascribed to colours in Chinese culture, especially to gold, red and yellow, giving gifts in these colours can make you an instant party favourite.

If you’re trying to be a little creative with your gift-giving this year and still want to give gifts considered to be lucky, gold is always a good way to go. The best part is that you no longer have to shell out a mini fortune to make a good impression - with SendGold, you can now transfer gold via our app to your loved ones this Chinese New Year, for just about any amount you can afford

Whatever you decide to get, check if they have variations of it in gold, red or yellow for a truly prosperous gift. 

Don’t forget to do some research on CNY gifts - some are considered inauspicious

As with every culture, certain gift items don’t ring a tiding of wealth and prosperity - quite the opposite, in fact. 

Among the list of tabooed gifts for the new year include shoes, pears, fans, umbrellas and clocks or watches. While the list doesn’t end there, these are a few items that can cause quite a stir if they’re unwrapped at a Chinese New Year party. 

Make sure you’re the talk of the party, but for all the right reasons!

Don’t give gifts in sets of four

Another major gift-giving faux pas is giving someone a gift that comes in a set of four. This is because the word ‘four’ sounds similar to the word ‘death’ when stated in Mandarin

If you’re eager to give someone special a gift set though, you can always give them something in pairs of two or eight, which are considered to be much luckier and prosperous. ‘Eight’, when pronounced in Mandarin sounds like the word that means ‘to prosper’.

Do use both hands when presenting your gift

In addition to giving your gift plenty of thought, you also need to make sure that you present it in the right way. 

When exchanging gifts this Chinese New Year, make sure you use both hands as a sign of respect to the other person. In the same way, if you receive any gift, use both hands as well. 

Following these simple but deeply-revered customs will help you engage more meaningful on this occasion.

Don’t open your gifts right away

Another thing you need to know is that it’s considered bad form if you tear into your gifts as soon as you receive them. Given that your reaction to someone’s gift can either lead to satisfaction or disappointment for the giver, you’re expected to open your gifts in private. 

This is also so that someone who has given you a more modest gift won’t feel bad when they see that you’ve received more lavish gifts than theirs. 

Nail gift-giving this Chinese New Year with SendGold - your partner in prosperity

This Chinese New Year, ensure that your loved ones revel in the traditions and joy of this auspicious occasion with the right gifts and by following all its revered traditions. 

Whether you’re gifting generously-stuffed hongbaos, a delectable array of fresh fruit or digital gold, give each gift with complete goodwill and generosity to experience the true joy of this occasion.

Another year, another Valentine’s Day around the corner. While this is an exciting occasion for many, there are plenty who dread cheesy romance - especially if you’re out of thoughtful and meaningful gift ideas, with the holiday just a few days away.

If you find traditional romantic gifts a little overdone, we’ve got a few ideas that will help you nail a gift that’s not just exciting but entirely out of the ordinary too.

Some of these are also excellent if you’ve decided to celebrate yourself this Valentine’s Day - it’s a great opportunity to honour a lifelong commitment to the one person you can truly count on: Yourself. 

Now of course many SendGold customers have already send the gift of gold this year - the perfect last minute gift - with their custom message and unique virtual gift card. But if you still need other ideas, here is a list we've come up with:

An Amazon gift card

Valentine’s gift-giving can be stressful because no matter how well you know someone, there may be certain things they don’t share with you - like their secret obsession with miniature Disney figurines, for instance.

Regardless of what they’re not telling you, Amazon gift cards are the perfect Valentine’s Day gift because you’re basically just sponsoring a shopping spree on one of the biggest e-commerce marketplaces on the internet. No biggie. 

A smart home assistant

Smart homes are all the rage these days and if you’re looking for a gift that will add real value to your partner’s (or your) life, a smart home assistant is a surefire choice.

Not only can these order you an Uber, place your go-to order on the Domino’s app, and wake you up on time, but soon, you will be able to have entire conversations with sophisticated assistants like Alexa.

The best part about buying one of these devices is that they’re available at different price points and come with incredible features - did you know that they can even double as powerful Bluetooth speakers?

Digital gold

They say diamonds are forever but few naturally-occurring commodities like gold have retained value over thousands of years and continue to be highly relevant, high-value investments.

If you want to be more creative than simply gifting your partner a gold chain or any type of gold jewellery, digital gold is a great way to make an investment on behalf of your loved one this Valentine’s Day - it doesn’t get any more non-romantic, yet deeply meaningful, than that!

Digital gold also happens to be a great gift to give yourself - one that will bail you out on a rainy day, especially given that gold only continues to become more scarce and is increasing in value.

On our app, SendGold, you can not just buy and wrap up your gift in exciting Valentine’s Day-inspired gift wrap, but you can also sell your gold just as instantly as you buy it!

A weighted blanket

Another extremely popular (and non-romantic) gift idea is the weighted blanket that has set the internet ablaze with its proven benefits for anxiety and sleep.

Basically, these fluffy duvets, built with innovative cooling technology, are weighted, which means that when you cover yourself in them, there’s a relaxing pressure placed wherever your body is covered.

Proven to improve sleep, these blankets can be bought at different weights for people of different ages, tailoring the weight of the blanket with the bodyweight of the person it’s bought for.

Blue-light-blocking glasses

If you or your partner are all about the latest tech goodies up for grabs, blue-light-blocking glasses are a high-tech way to commemorate one of the most romantic days of the year.

These are perfect for people who spend all day in front of a computer or peering at their smartphones (basically, all of us). The glasses filter harmful blue light that disrupts the body’s Circadian Rhythm, which ultimately throws your sleep cycle off-balance.

Celebrate Valentine’s day with fun gift ideas that are meaningful and non-romantic

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be celebrated the way society demands you to. On the 14th of February, gift your special someone something that’s not a framed photo, a spa treatment or jewellery and actually make them feel special with something that’s a little different.

If it’s just you this Valentine’s Day, our gift ideas are still amazing - you just get to enjoy all the benefits yourself. Head to SendGold to begin your Valentine’s Day shopping - gold is a gift that keeps giving.

With the Chinese New Year approaching rapidly, it’s no surprise that many of us have our heads filled with creamy-red hongbaos, steaming Chinese dumplings and sticky rice cakes. If you’re celebrating this holiday, however, your head is bound to be filled with another matter of equal importance - giving the perfect Chinese New Year gift.

If you’re stuck for ideas and don’t have the luxury of time, take a look at our gift-giving dos and don’ts for all you need to know before you pick the perfect gift. Good luck!

Do think about the colour of your gifts

Given the importance ascribed to colours in Chinese culture, especially to gold, red and yellow, giving gifts in these colours can make you an instant party favourite.

If you’re trying to be a little creative with your gift-giving this year and still want to give gifts considered to be lucky, gold is always a good way to go. The best part is that you no longer have to shell out a mini fortune to make a good impression - with SendGold, you can now transfer gold via our app to your loved ones this Chinese New Year, for just about any amount you can afford

Whatever you decide to get, check if they have variations of it in gold, red or yellow for a truly prosperous gift. 

Don’t forget to do some research on CNY gifts - some are considered inauspicious

As with every culture, certain gift items don’t ring a tiding of wealth and prosperity - quite the opposite, in fact. 

Among the list of tabooed gifts for the new year include shoes, pears, fans, umbrellas and clocks or watches. While the list doesn’t end there, these are a few items that can cause quite a stir if they’re unwrapped at a Chinese New Year party. 

Make sure you’re the talk of the party, but for all the right reasons!

Don’t give gifts in sets of four

Another major gift-giving faux pas is giving someone a gift that comes in a set of four. This is because the word ‘four’ sounds similar to the word ‘death’ when stated in Mandarin

If you’re eager to give someone special a gift set though, you can always give them something in pairs of two or eight, which are considered to be much luckier and prosperous. ‘Eight’, when pronounced in Mandarin sounds like the word that means ‘to prosper’.

Do use both hands when presenting your gift

In addition to giving your gift plenty of thought, you also need to make sure that you present it in the right way. 

When exchanging gifts this Chinese New Year, make sure you use both hands as a sign of respect to the other person. In the same way, if you receive any gift, use both hands as well. 

Following these simple but deeply-revered customs will help you engage more meaningful on this occasion.

Don’t open your gifts right away

Another thing you need to know is that it’s considered bad form if you tear into your gifts as soon as you receive them. Given that your reaction to someone’s gift can either lead to satisfaction or disappointment for the giver, you’re expected to open your gifts in private. 

This is also so that someone who has given you a more modest gift won’t feel bad when they see that you’ve received more lavish gifts than theirs. 

Nail gift-giving this Chinese New Year with SendGold - your partner in prosperity

This Chinese New Year, ensure that your loved ones revel in the traditions and joy of this auspicious occasion with the right gifts and by following all its revered traditions. 

Whether you’re gifting generously-stuffed hongbaos, a delectable array of fresh fruit or digital gold, give each gift with complete goodwill and generosity to experience the true joy of this occasion.

A holiday dedicated to the Sun God, Surya, Thai Pongal is an annual Hindu holiday, predominantly celebrated among Tamil communities around the world. Marking the end of the winter solstice, the holiday is a harvest festival that takes place over the course of three to four days. 

Given the rich culture and traditions of the Tamil community, Thai Pongal is celebrated with the aid of age-old customs that are followed with great reverence and exuberance. If you’re curious about how you can celebrate Thai Pongal this year, here are a few tips!

Prepare delicious sweetmeats for simple gastronomic delights

Did you know that Thai Pongal even has a special dish known as Pongal rice? 

Pongal, which literally means ‘to boil, overflow’, is a technique used to prepare the rice, which is made of rice from a new harvest, boiled in milk with jaggery, green gram, raisins, cashew nuts, cardamom and other ingredients. 

The dish is considered to be a pleasing sacrifice and is offered to Hindu gods during the festival. It’s usually on the second day that the family gathers together and prepares Pongal rice on a fire hearth made of bricks. The rice is cooked in a clay pot, with each family member adding a handful of rice in.

The sweet and aromatic rice is then served on a banana leaf and given to the family.

Other dishes you can prepare and enjoy with your family and friends include curd rice, coconut rice, lemon rice, idli sambar - a life-changing dish if you have it with a thick curry! - and vada, which can be made in different ways with a mix of pulses.

Give gifts to all those who are near and dear

Another major and exciting part of Thai Pongal is the exchange of meaningful gifts between close friends and family.

While there’s no restriction to what you can and can’t give, gold happens to be a very popular token of appreciation during this holiday period. While many celebrants prize their gold jewellery, you can now gift gold to the people you care about as quickly and as easily as you’d make a bank transfer. 

The best part? You don’t have to be a big spender this Thai Pongal; gift gold for any amount you’re comfortable spending - even as low as $10!

Give your home a thorough cleaning and throw out old belongings

In preparing for Thai Pongal, a major part of pre-festivities is spring cleaning your home! If you’ve been looking for a good reason to give your house a thorough scrub down, this is basically part and parcel of the holiday experience.

In this process, take a look at household items and belongings you no longer need and either give them to people who may need them or throw them out completely. In many households, it’s a Thai Pongal tradition to burn these items in a bonfire.

Make time for the people you care about

While engaging in the festivities during this holiday is important, what’s more important is spending time and forging deeper connections with your family, friends, and loved ones. 

Thai Pongal is meant to bring the whole family together with its cheerful festivities. Even if you don’t follow every tradition or custom, make sure you appreciate the people who love and support you during this holiday.

Visit a temple if you’re feeling inspired

On the second day of the festival, celebrants usually head to a temple to offer their prayers for a more prosperous year. A variety of processions usually take place here and this presents a wonderful opportunity for the community to gather and offer their good wishes to one another.

While you don’t have to visit a temple to celebrate this holiday, pay a visit to a nearby place of worship if you want to enjoy the full Thai Pongal experience. 

Celebrate Thai Pongal in good spirits with SendGold!

Bring your loved ones together this Thai Pongal and enjoy a truly joyous festival! Make this occasion extra special with gifts worth their weight in gold - literally.

With SendGold by your side, make a gift of gold for a truly auspicious start to the new year
