Good news for couples-to-be! There is a new service in town called The Gift Box, which is a premium, easy-to-use, online gift registry & shop that simplifies the entire wedding gift list process for Hong Kong brides. They offer a wide assortment of beautiful home items from world-renowned brands as well as luxury lifestyle gifts and a ‘honeymoon’ fund (how sweet is that?!) and aims to “banish the stresses and challenges of gift list planning, and to put the magic, excitement and fun back into the process” says Katie Hawinkel, founder of The Gift Box.
Some great gifts we spotted on their website include the indispensable KitchenAid (in a wide assortment of Crayola colours)
Gorgeous hurricane lanterns that would look great inside or out..
Silver place-card ‘leaf’ holders by Ercuis for dinner parties at home..
Bridal couples can now create their own bespoke wedding gift list in a few simple steps. Once a Gift List is complete, wedding guests will have an easy, simple and secure way to spoil a bridal couple on their special day. Not getting married anytime soon? The Gift Box is also a great way to effortlessly buy your gifts online (think Christmas shopping at your desk!) for every occasion, from spa vouchers to cases of wine.

So happy to hear that iconic French patisserie, Ladurée, has finally opened an outlet in Hong Kong at Harbour City following the success of its pop-up store last year at Joyce. With its beautiful packaging and tempting macaroons, we will be making regular sojourns to the other side to satisfy our macaroon cravings!
If you haven’t yet been to Sheer, you should stop by! Sheer stocks beautiful, sexy and fun lingerie perfect for your honeymoon trousseau. Every item in store is chosen with care, from beautiful lace bras to the softest pyjamas. If you are getting married (and even if you’re not!), its definitely a good idea to surprise your other half and revamp your lingerie drawer!
Need another reason? Bring a girlfriend or two and stop by their store on the 31st August for free flowing champagne and meet the designer Olivia von Halle and browse her range of luxury silk PJ’s! Its sheer fun! Sorry couldn’t resist.
