Fall head over heels as SSI celebrates the most romantic of seasons with the Qixi Festival, also known as Chinese Valentine’s Day. It is based on a romantic legend about a forbidden love between a weaver girl and an ox herd who were not allowed to see each other for so long, until such time the ‘Goddess of Heaven’ granted them to reunite every 7th day of the 7th Chinese lunar month; thus the occasion happening this year on August 4. 

Qixi Festival has been celebrated yearly among the community for over 2,000 years – a special day to find potential lovers or use the opportunity to give presents to their beloved. Like star-crossed lovers, find a destined match from thoughtful and stylish gift suggestions curated by SSI featuring its well-loved luxury and staple brands.
