We love the local company, Qraftie, and have told you about them before in our gifting guide for Hong Kong. Qraftie supports local artists, providing them a platform to sell their hand-crafted items. 

If you don’t have time to browse their stylish and fun products, head straight for the coasters. Qraftie offers eclectically designed coasters that encapsulate Hong Kong and local style.

As well as being super practical, these coasters will be a conversation starter.  They are sold as a set of 3 for $180 and come packaged in environmentally-friendly packaging.  These coasters make a lovely small gift that is sure to please.


What is a great Christmas gift for a friend in Hong Kong? 

For a gift that’s practical, thoughtful, and good for the planet, you can’t go far wrong with Pre de Provence Marseille Soap 72% Olive Oil Cube – 300g. It’s the most all-purpose gift you can get for someone, and it’s good for the environment since it has minimal packaging. 

This wonder-soap can be used for:

  • Your showering needs
  • Cleaning the kitchen
  • Dishwashing
  • Cleaning your make up brushes

And pretty much anything else that you might want to use soap for. 

It’s also super on-trend right now; you might have even come across Pre de Provence Marseille Soap 72% Olive Oil Cube – 300g on Instagram (like us!!). Do you need anything more from a Christmas gift?

 

What’s a good Hong Kong Christmas gift for someone who loves their home? 

Candles from The White Company 

Looking for the Best Christmas Gift Ideas for Hong Kong 2021? How about candles from The White Company? They smell divine and are long-lasting.

Got a friend who’s all about the house? There are some great places in Hong Kong for quirky and unusual furniture, but you can’t really buy a chest of drawers for someone who’s thought so much about their home design. 

Instead of statement pieces, consider buying a gift from The White Company, which we review here. The designs are classic and clean and should complement any home with their white and off-white products.

The company has a whole selection of Christmas gift ideas –  plus decorations and tableware – and we absolutely love this Winter Botanical Large Candle. The smell of winter and Christmas is certainly evocative. Giving the gift of happy holiday memories is a lovely thought.

 

Where can I get a great Christmas gift for a makeup lover in Hong Kong? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We love Cult Beauty here at Savvy and have reviewed it previously. Cult Beauty has a huge product range, detailed product descriptions, and product reviews you can trust. 

Knowing that, would you expect us to recommend anywhere else for a beauty product lover? With Christmas being close, the site is packed with gift sets that bring together items for your friends to fall in love with. 

  • For the makeup lover in Hong Kong, check out this Benefit Cheers My Dears! Gift set, including a bronzer, eyebrow pencil, primer, and mascara.
  • When your friend is all about skincare, you can buy them the Self Care Edit – a package from a range of brands put together by Cult Beauty themselves.

 

What are the best kids’ presents for kids in Hong Kong? 

Craft activities are one of the best items to buy for a kids Christmas present in 2020.

Christmas is really about creating a magical time for children. Your kids might be missing Christmas with extended family from around the globe this year, but you definitely want them having fun. 

Keep your kids entertained, happy, and creative this Christmas with some fun crafting ideas. The kids who pop around with their parents will appreciate you having something to keep them entertained whilst you dissect the year with their parents over a glass of wine.

  • Order in some washable dot markers from Amazon to keep little ones occupied. You get activity sheets, and the markers are easy to clean off and quick to dry, so you don’t need to worry too much about the mess. 
  • To really inspire creativity, this Kortes Art and Craft Supply for Kids will keep anyone happy. Set the kids a task of making Christmas decorations or presents and watch their minds tick over with ideas. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Order a National Geographic Mega Crystal Growing Lab. I can barely say enough good things about this product. First of all, this product appeals to kids from a broad range; I’ve personally seen an 11-year-old gush after receiving this gift, and equally, my 5-year-old child was happy to receive this present. It’s a STEM activity; both educational and interesting. This is the kind of item you can buy extra of and stick in your cupboard. If you don’t need them for Christmas, you can surely use them for birthday party invites.

Are you a follower of Humans of New York? Brandon Stanton, the creator of the powerful series of posts who shines a light on the curious and interesting people he meets on the streets of New York, wrote a wonderful book – Humans.

Humans” is a deeper take on the stories he found in New York and across the world and is a beautiful read.  It’s available on Amazon. This book is full of stories to make you weep and also make your heart leap for joy.

Wine

Wine is a great Christmas gift that will please most people. Plus, it’s always handy to have a few extra bottles of wine handy over Christmas in case you have unexpected visitors.

If you want to buy some fabulous wine, consider Cocobop. This is a relatively new-comer to the Hong Kong market. Cocobop specializes in hip, niche, and organic wine. If you are looking for something special and unexpected, this is sure to please.
