Have you ever wondered what to do with all those mooncake boxes?
Mid-Autumn Festival is here again and while we’re all excited to taste the exotic new range of flavours mooncake makers all over the island have been inventing, what are you going to do with the boxes?
Yes, they come in real handy for tasks like desk organisation, but let us show you three even better uses for them! We’re talking about creating Feel-Good Kits with tons of good stuff inside, perfect for friends who need a little pick-me-up.
The best thing about mooncake boxes, like this one from PrimaDéli, is that they don’t even need to be wrapped. The boxes give a nice element of surprise when opened! Check out some fun ideas on how to make someone’s day with these Feel-Good Kits.
1. Create a Beach Babe Feel-Good Kit
Transform this box into a feel-good kit for a someone who loves being in the great outdoors! Most of us often end up unprepared and tend to forget things like after-sun lotion or a good facial mist. So for the girl friend who is always out in the sun, make sure she has all the right tools for the best beach experience in this kit!
Spending long amounts of time on the beach can dry out the skin significantly, so we’ve included essentials like sheer-coloured lip gloss, face masks, Argan Oil for taming frizzy hair and facial mist for a quick spritz during beach activities!

2. Create a Health Guru Feel-Good Kit
Honestly, we wanted to turn this PrimaDeli mooncake box into an emergency snack box featuring the world’s most deliciously addictive junk foods. But we all know that our friends would also appreciate a good health-boosting package. The best health kits come with nutritious snacks like almonds, dark chocolate, coconut water, and even yogurt – great tummy-fillers for the office crew rushing from meeting to meeting!

We came up with another version of the health guru kit, which keeps things more ‘home-made’. We would love to find a present like this on our desk! From nuts to dried fruits and crunchy baby carrots, your stressed out colleague might feel a whole lot better!

How about some mooncakes that will make your mouth water?
We had the courtesy of collaborating with PrimaDéli and realised that their boxes are not just great for Feel-Good Kits, their mooncakes are just gloriously yummy.
The famous PrimaDéli’s Durian Snowskin Mooncake are a complete luxury! Made with premium grade D24 durians, the filling has a rich aroma, complex flavour and a smooth, creamy texture. Their snowskin is also whisper-thin which gives you a refreshingly icy sensation on your palate.
We’re especially excited to try their brand-new Mini Salted Caramel Toffee Snowskin Mooncake. This delight has a buttery caramel interior with a pleasantly-surprising crunchy texture from the almond flakes inside.
The Mini Sakura Matcha Snowskin Mooncake is another new one, made of sweet sakura filling and surprises texturally with a chewy matcha mochi core.
Can’t decide? Get all nine bite-sized mooncakes in the PrimaDéli Royal Gift Set. What you’ll get: Mini D24 Durian, Mini Cranberry Cheese, Mini Mango Lemongrass, Mini Sakura Matcha, Mini Cookies and Cream, Mini Thai Milk Tea with Black Pearl, Mini Salted Caramel Toffee, Mini Chocolate Mint and Mini Soursop with Guava.
