Those of us who still haven't started our holiday shopping can take comfort in knowing that we are still in time to celebrate Chinese New Year in style. These Li Xi Gift Envelopes are a beautiful way to usher in the Year of the Pig. The laser cut envelopes, traditionally used to give gifts of "lucky money" to family and friends, are inspired by ancient Chinese papercuts. Created by Portland-based husband-and-wife team Design Night, each delicate crepe paper envelope is hand assembled and feature intricate silhouettes and shadows inspired by the Chinese Zodiac.

The Li Xi Gift Envelopes start at $6.50 for one envelope.
