Mandarin orange is seen as a good luck item symbolising "gold", as its Chinese name "gem" (/g/ "hard G") in Cantonese indicates. It is therefore used as gift while visiting relatives and friends during Chinese New Year to bring good luck to thehousehold. Mandarin oranges are exchanged between the host and guest as a way to show respect to the other. "Li shang wang lai" 礼尚往来 is a Chinese idiom most appropriately describe this social method, as in "you give me a gift and I do the same to you as a courtesy".
