Christmas is almost upon us and if, like us, you are stuck for present ideas, help is at hand. If you are searching for the perfect foodie gift for someone based in Hong Kong or for someone who is planning to visit soon, then try these ideas. We are confident these Hong Kong gifts for foodies are just the ticket.

1. Purchase a Hong Kong Foodie Gift Card

We are sure the first of our five great Hong Kong Christmas gift suggestions will be well received because that is the feedback we receive from our guests. Our Foodie Tours cover an eclectic mix of Hong Kong neighborhoods, from vibrant Sham Shui Po to bustling Central. Our Hong Kong Foodie Gift Card can be purchased for all four of our Foodie Tours and is valid for a year. What’s even better, get them at a 10% discount from December 3, 2018 until December 25th, 2018. Simply use promo code “HOLIDAY”.

2. Get ahead with a HK Brewcraft Advent Calendar

Good news! You do not have to wait until December 25th to get ahead with your holiday present giving. This advent calendar makes the countdown to Christmas a pleasure. Each day from December 1st until Christmas Eve your friend or relative could be enjoying the taste of a bottle of Hong Kong’s best local craft brews. Unwrap a beautifully packaged beer each day and note your favorites as you go along. Remember to always drink responsibly. But if you are a late shopper, you can surprise your beer-lover friends and family with HK Brewcraft’s Christmas Tasting Gift Box. In it, your recipient will find 4 exclusive Christmas-themed craft beers, plus two Lucaris Crystal Tasting glasses, and of course, you’ll also need a HK Brewcraft bottle opener to pop these treats.

3. Deliver a coffee hamper from Coffee Academics

Hampers make ideal foodie gifts and the pleasure of receiving one is assured. For a twist on the usual Christmas hampers, try this coffee hamper from Coffee Academics. These delightful box sets have everything your foodie friend or relative could wish for. Each contains premium brewing equipment, as well as Coffee Academics’ pure top 5% Arabica specialty coffee beans. Choose from the ultimate Capsule-To-Go set, a steal at HK$968, or the Brew It Away set, costing just HK$718. If you are looking for a stocking filler, they also have a Grind the Best set for a very affordable HK$298.

4. Gift a delightful Hong Kong Milk Tea Set

Teaddict, as their name suggests, have a passion for tea and this cute parcel-themed tea set makes the ideal foodie gift for anyone with a soft spot for Hong Kong. The set contains almost everything you need to make a cup of traditional Hong Kong milk tea – all that is required is fresh milk and sugar. The kit comprises a mini tea strainer, teapot, mini milk jar and a measuring spoon to ensure a precise and perfect cuppa. The easy to wrap and post tin makes it as great a choice for foreign friends, expats as it is for locals.

5. Show your love in the kitchen with a gift from Loveramics

One of our favorite Hong Kong design stores has to be Loveramics. This store loves all things ceramic – hence the name – and their cake sets and tea sets make especially cool gifts for foodies. William Lee and Simon Stevens mix passion with a flair for design to create contemporary ceramics which will add a welcome injection of style to any kitchen. We particularly love their take on the classic, 200 year old Willow pattern. In fact, it is even better than the original, because these pieces are microwave- and dishwasher-safe.

We hope these ideas Hong Kong gifts have solved your present buying dilemmas. Happy holidays, everyone!
