Mooncakes are must-haves during the mid-autumn festival (we will worry about the calories later). With the many innovative flavours like bird nest flavoured mooncakes to salted toffee ones, mid-autumn festival gets more and more exciting every year.
Besides picking the best tasting mooncakes to gift our loved ones with, now we want them in the most unique and interesting packagings too. In fact, a closer look at all the mooncake offerings from the bakeries to the hotels got us spoilt for choice. In case you get too overwhelmed with the huge variety, we sussed out 6 mooncake sets with unique packagings for you.
Join the royal ranks with mooncakes that are all wrapped in handcrafted blush-celadon and crimson-hued silk boxes that resemble imperial jewellery boxes adorned with pearl buttons. There are three limited edition Shang Palace gift boxes on offer for sharing or gifting: the Mini Snow Skin Eight Treasures collection, the Mini Eight Treasures collection, and the classic Four Treasures collection.
The perfect gift for that friend bitten by the wanderlust bug is Crowne Plaza® Changi Airport limited edition travel-themed suitcase mooncake series. The traditional baked mooncakes will be presented in a chic and sturdy orange suitcase, complete with vintage brown trimming, shiny gold hardware and a matching leather luggage tag. The snow skin mooncakes will be presented in our sleek silver metal suitcase, which is back by popular demand. The suitcases can be reused for other storage purposes by removing the inserts.
