With fewer than 10 days to go before Christmas, many of us are scrambling for last-minute Christmas gifts. It may be even more difficult to shop for foodies here, especially if you are shopping from afar. Hong Kong Foodie offers four unique gift ideas for your foodie friends and family in Hong Kong. Not only are these items mightily tasty, some are also healthy gifts to give and receive.

1. Taboocha Christmas Hamper



Taboocha is your local Hong Kong kombucha brew. Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage that is deliciously tart and naturally bubbly. The probiotic nature of the drink boosts gut health, encouraging good bacteria to grow while kicking out bad bacteria, in turn strengthening your immune system & cleansing your liver. Made from organic Chinese tea and organic raw cane sugar, Taboocha’s kombucha boasts a range of fun and delicious flavors for you and your gut – fresh ingredients and cold pressed juices are used to make sure you have an amazing kombucha experience.

During this holiday season, Taboocha offers a special Christmas hamper that will delight any healthy foodie. In their hamper, it contains:

2. Craft Beer by HK Brewcraft

Gift Idea -- HK Brewcraft

HK Brewcraft

Craft beer has become quite popular in Hong Kong in recent years. Wouldn’t it be interesting to learn how to brew your own? HK Brewcraft offers 3-hour small-group brewing workshops. Or select from one of their many brewing or ingredient kits, from American pale ale to stout. This could be a really fun experience for foodie friends to do together. If you have no desire to mess around with anything, HK Brewcraft also just sells bottles and bottles of different types of craft beer for easy consumption. Visit their shop to browse their huge collection. They are located in Central. Check out their website at www.hkbrewcraft.com for more information.

3.  Po Sang Yuen Honey

Po Sang Yuen Honey

Po Sang Yuen Honey

Honey could be the sweetest gift this Christmas for your loved ones. Full of nutrients and vitamins, Chinese believe that honey can reduce your “heat” in your system, boost your immune system and has detox effect.  Winter time can be quite dry in Hong Kong. Honey is also perfect for nourishment in this dry weather.

Po Sang Yuen Bee Farm is a local apiary serving Hong Kong’s community for almost a century. Ask any local which honey they grew up having, many will tell you it’s Po Sang Yuen’s. They have its own farm in Fanling in the New Territories. We recommend either the Lychee Honey for its fragrance or the Ivy Tree Honey for high nutritional value.

You could purchase Po Sang Yuen Honey at their bee farm in Fanling. Not able to make the trek there? During the holiday season, they are also exhibiting at the Hong Kong Brands and Products Expo in Victoria Park in Causeway Bay. Look for Booth 4C45-46 between now and January 6. For more information, please visit their Facebook page. Their Facebook page is mostly written in Chinese. If you need assistance, you could always email us and we could help direct you.

4. Hong Kong Foodie Gift Card

Other than these 3 delicious unique foodie gift ideas, of course, you can always purchase Hong Kong Foodie Gift Cards which can be redeemed for a Hong Kong food tour with us. Our Foodie Gift Cards make great Christmas presents not only for travelers to Hong Kong but also for expats living here. A food tour in Hong Kong offers an excellent way to explore different neighborhoods and learn more about our culture through our food.

You can choose from our signature Central & Sheung Wan Foodie Tour. Or for a more off-the-beaten path experience, select our Sham Shui Po Foodie Tour or Tai Po Market Foodie Tour, both of which have won Hong Kong Tourism Board’s New Tour Product Development Scheme. We are rated as one of the top Tours & Activities in Hong Kong by TripAdvisor. Simply visit our Foodie Gift Card page for more information on how to give our Hong Kong food tours to your loved ones.
