Browse the latest bouquets in our collection below

For some guys, finding the perfect gift for your girlfriend can be a total nightmare.

Whatever the occasion – her birthday, Valentine’s Day, your anniversary, or simply a gift to show your appreciation (or to ask for forgiveness!) – a lot of thought is required to make sure your gift is thoughtful, memorable, useful and of good quality, and not to end up in the trash. Here at Gift Something Hong Kong, the premium online store for delivering the best gifts to the recipient’s door, we’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves for seeking out that ideal gift for your girlfriend and to make sure what you give her will put a smile on her face. Read on to find out more!

Gift-giving Etiquette in Hong Kong: Do’s & Don’ts

Hong Kong is the hub where East meets West, and with that comes an extensive history and rich gift culture from both sides. As a gift-giver, this means that there are a few additional things to keep in mind in the act of gift-giving when you are in Hong Kong, especially if it’s something for a special lady you would like to make a good impression on. Even though the act itself shows that you have good intentions and your efforts will most likely be appreciated, there are certain things that you would like to avoid and could instead spend your energy elsewhere.

Do’s:

  • Remember the important days: Valentine’s Day, your anniversary date and her birthday as well as celebratory festivals such as Chinese New Year, Dragon Boat Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival and Christmas are all important dates to spend time together. Your girlfriend will appreciate your time and gifting, and will more than likely offer you the same, so be sure to be prepared around these times.
  • Value of the gift: Consider the importance of the occasion, how long you’ve known each other and how long you’ve been together before deciding on a decent budget for the gift. You wouldn’t want to purchase anything too gimmicky and cheap that would render your girlfriend any feelings of disrespect, but you also would like to avoid buying something so expensive that it would make her uncomfortable. A safe range would be anything between HK$150 – HK$2000.

Don’ts:

  • Leave the price tag on: Leaving the price tag on a gift is a big no-no as it can make the recipient – your girlfriend – feel uncomfortable when receiving the gift. The price of the item is personal, so be sure to keep it to yourself, even if your girlfriend asks you.
  • No wrapping: While the gift itself may be lovely, not wrapping your gift seems unprepared and a sign of lacking effort. If that’s not the impression you wish to give, best to get the wrapping paper out!
  • Sending clocks or watches: This is considered a bad omen and takes a play on words in Cantonese for attending a funeral, so it is best to be avoided.
