The Silver Egg blog: Local Hong Kong Gifts for Foreign Friends
By: Babette Radclyffe
After stocking up on Hong Kong’s signature souvenirs to send back home, where do you go to find a more elusive and stylish gift? We highlight our top picks for local Hong Kong gifts with a twist.
Goods of Desire
A must-see store for any Hong Kong tourist, Goods of Desire, AKA G.O.D is also a perfect place to pick up local gifts at wallet-friendly prices. For nearly 20 years, G.O.D. has been adding a humorous and quirky edge to apparel, accessories and housewares. The local brand frequently takes 1960s everyday classic local graphics and adds a contemporary touch such as newspaper print bedding and neon signage photo frames. Constantly playing on double entendre that reference cheeky Cantonese curse words, G.O.D’s graphic tees, tea towels and even boxer shorts, make great gifts for witty friends. After checking out the Hollywood Road store, go grab a refreshing Starbucks coffee in Central at the G.O.D. collaboration outlet that resembles a 1960s Hong Kong bing sutt (snack house).
