Dress your apartment up in hues of red for the Lunar New Year and prepare for a year of wealth and good luck without forking out a fortune on decorations.

Since the majority of Chinese New Year decorations will only be up for about a month, it's not worth burning a hole in your pocket just to impress at house visits and reunion dinners — unless they're going to become permanent fixtures in your apartment. 

That said, we’ve done the legwork for you and dug up the best boutiques for traditional, contemporary and quirky Chinese New Year accessories; of which, some decoration pieces even go for as low as S$0.25. (Ah, the beauty of online e-commerce!)

Without further ado, here is the auspicious guide to shopping for affordable CNY ornaments, figurines, couplets and wall hangings in Singapore 2023.

At Give Fun, they offer loads of adorable hanging Chinese New Year accessories and decor to deck your corridors with tasteful flashes of red.

Their catalogue is nothing short of versatile and impressive, ranging from decor pieces like Tissue Paper Tassel Garlands (S$6.90) to 36-inch Jumbo Red Latex Balloons (from S$65.90).

For those looking to go all out, let the God of Fortune grace your reunion dinners with their CNY Balloon Dome – 财神爷 福兔贺岁 God of Fortune & Confetti (S$55.90) with the deity himself sitting within topped with an LED string light.

But if that's not enough, their CNY-Themed Standing Organic Chalk Matte Balloon Garland (S$189) or 1.8m Balloon Tower (S$149) should be sufficiently extravagant.

In particular, their Chinese New Year Mini Hanging Banner Decoration (16pcs/set) – 喜气洋洋,金玉满堂 comes with 16 banners of all shapes and sizes, featuring a selection of auspicious sayings for only S$16.90! 

If hanging these banners around hooks and frames in your house is too boring, you're more than welcome to drape them over your favourite houseplant. That's one guaranteed way to liven up your space!

The individual banners in this set are also available for sale separately.

3. Daiso

Moving on to the other end of the spectrum, those searching for cheap but decent-quality CNY embellishments should head over to Daiso.

Known as the Japanese dollar store equivalent, Singaporean bargain hunters are no strangers to Daiso – so it makes sense that many of us enjoy doing our CNY shopping there as well. Just note that given the Japanese chain's roots, their interpretations of CNY decorations differ slightly.

With most items priced humbly at a mere S$2.16, you can get your hands on all sorts of CNY goodies like fortune-telling paper, fake flower arrangements, zodiac ornaments, and more.

Other ornaments are also available at S$4.10 and S$6.26 tiers, based on what sort of decor you want.

Except perhaps, instead of the typical Chinese fortune cat, you'll find the Japanese rendition of Maneki Neko dolls, daruma, and tanuki figurines to welcome good luck and fortune your way.

While you're at it, remember to grab some zodiac-themed angbaos for all your house visitations.

Price From $2.16 (for small decorations, flowers, trinkets, and ornaments)
Address Several outlets islandwide
Opening hours 10am to 10pm daily (unless stated otherwise)
Tel Depends on outlet
Delivery Min. purchase of 5 pieces

4. FairPrice

When it comes to all your CNY needs, you can't go wrong with FairPrice. Besides all your essential CNY snacks, this local favourite supermarket also stocks a plethora of decorative items.

You've got the classic pieces like the hanging pineapples (from S$2.20), 福 banner (from S$3.20), and a generous assortment of zodiac-themed ornaments (from S$0.80).

Just a few pieces should be enough to huat up the barren corners of your home.

At this point, the e-commerce giant, Shopee, may as well be another household retailer name to many Singaporeans – myself included. It's out with brick-and-mortar shopping, and in with effortless online shopping on platforms like Shopee.

Just a simple query search for "Chinese New Year decoration" reveals hundreds of CNY product listings from doorknob ornaments for S$0.94 to elaborate red dragon garlands for S$3.89. 

Basically what we're saying is: on Shopee, the CNY decoration options are aplenty and the prices stay locked low.

💡 Pro-tip: Always check back the 'daily vouchers' tab and 'free shipping vouchers' tab to snag cashback and waived shipping fee vouchers.

And also, if possible, check out your cart on the appointed 'Bank of the Day' if you have a relevant bank's credit card to use. For example, the 'Bank of the Day' for Thursday is DBS.

Not only is Lazada home to some of the best deals on the Internet, you can be sure the goods available are all up to standard too. Similarly to Shopee, Lazada's Huat catalogue of CNY goodies and deals is expansive and a good bargain.

As the epitome of cheap thrills, you can find cheap 17-piece hanging CNY decoration for S$1.50, adorable flannel drawstring bunny ear gift bags for S$2.30, and many bunny-themed angbaos for S$0.88.

Whether you're a traditionalist at heart or prefer all things modern and contemporary, there's something for everyone from every other shopping category imaginable.
