We’re already in the first week of December and it’s safe to say, we couldn’t be more excited for the festive season ahead! From our brilliant annual 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway which features a number of goodies to win this year to our recently published Christmas Eguide 2021, we’ve got you sorted with everything you need for a fun and festive holiday ahead! But we’ve got even more gifts, activities and places to eat to give you some Christmas inspiration throughout the season. Without further ado!
As many of us know, a Christmas hamper is always a great option as a Christmas gift, especially for someone who has it all. Give Gift Boutique features a variety of options, including its delicious wine and food bouquets that offer gourmet chocolates and tea, among others. Choose from the Inspiria Italian Design, the Christmas Present Box or the traditional Christmas Hamper this year to fulfil all your foodie cravings.
Cruises seem to be all the rage this year, and it makes a fun option to anyone looking for a trip aboard – at least sort of, at sea. Embark on a Royal Carribbean Cruisecation with your friends and family. The Christmas package allows you to enjoy its festive offerings, from Christmas card making to trivia nights.
Join LMO this year to celebrate the joys of Christmas through giving back. The luxury hotel is selling its LMO Bespoke Christmas Stockings, all at HK$288 each. All proceeds will go to MINDSET, a charity that focuses on making a positive and sustainable contribution to mental health. PS, we hear that Chef Ekkebus is selling a number of festive desserts which you can take home from the LMO Delicatessen.
Pirata Group’s concepts are known for their quintessential charm and after trying nearly all of them, we can say that we love each and every one of them. To pick one for Christmas was a difficult task, but we’ve gone for Chaiwala, the modern Indian restaurant. And what better way to celebrate festivities than with brunch? Chaiwala is serving its festive brunch on 25-27, 31 Dec and 1-2 Jan. It’s HK$398 per person and we strongly recommend adding the free-flow booze option to add to the fun.
Who doesn’t love a bit of wine? These two Hong Kong brands have partnered up for an exclusive gift collaboration featuring signature wines from TOASST with BOMSHBEE’s O Wine Glasses. They come in a beautiful box meaning this is ready for gifting your loved ones. Eat, drink, be merry!
‘Tis the season for Christmas carols! Enjoy the blissful tunes of choral music with The Harmonics Choir Hong Kong, the largest local LGBTQIA+ and Allies community choir. Expect beautiful melodies from old-school classics. There are two sessions – one on 15th December, the next one on 18th December.
It’s party time! Dine in with CATCH at one of their restaurants – Quarry Bay or K-town – or bring Christmas home with the restaurant’s dedicated catering services. Christmas plates go from festive turkeys to succulent honey glazed ham. Bring a group together to get the festive spirit going!
We’ve covered numerous Christmas markets this year, but a little birdie has just informed us about Asia Society Hong Kong Center’s special German Market, which will run from December 17 to 19. The arts hub is offering a number of artisan vendors to celebrate local businesses. You can also expect live music, a screening of Home Alone, festive workshops and Christmas Carols at 5pm daily.
Oh doesn’t the sound of Disneyland Christmas just bring flutters to the stomach and a warm fuzzy feeling? As the first snowflakes of winter fall across the park, Disneyland has transformed into a place for all festive fun, with its Christmas trees, shows and overall tree. Wishes do come true.
