Beginning today, it's officially the Year of the Ox, and to get you in the festive spirit, we've selected 6 of our favorite gifts for that beloved bovine in your life. Whether you're ready to go all out with sparklers, dumplings, and lots of booze or simply slip a little money under the pillow, here's our roundup of everything from pinatas to hong baos (the traditional money envelopes), and even a happy buddha lamp for lighting up the night.
