Red Envelopes

Does anyone know where to buy red envelopes? My friend's getting married next month (and he's Chinese) and I wanted to give them money. I guess I could also just give them a card...but I want to know if there was anywhere specific in Chinatown or elsewhere to buy them just out of my own curiosity.

A lot of places sell red envelopes. One place specifically that I can tell you is Ho Tai Printing in Chinatown, located at 723-725 Clay Street. (415) 421 4218. I recently went to a wedding and Hallmark makes money enclosure cards. =)

I think you can usually find them in any Chinese supermarket. They sell it in ours, and we're in the middle of nowhere in Connecticut, so they shouldn't be too hard to find in the Bay Area.

Like pp said, try Asian markets. Also, my dad gets his from his bank (albeit around New Year's).

We bought some Double Happiness from Ho Tai as well. They also have some at the 88 cent store on Broadway in between Powell & Stockton. We bought a lot of red envelopes there for Chinese New Year and I saw wedding ones.
