Christmas Gift Ideas | HKTDC DG Studio + GIVEAWAY

Looking for a gift this Christmas? Here are some ideas!
With Christmas being just around the corner, now would be a great time to get creative with gifts that are awesome and quirky that you can exclusively get from DG Studio. If youre wondering what is DG Studio, they are actually under Hong Kong Tourism featuring lifestyle products that are from Hong Kong. Hong Kong is well known to be the Paris of Asia, and also particularly famous to embrace both Eastern and Western cultures, somehow the culture of the country's unique background has managed to be the birthplace of many unique homegrown brands that are creative while bringing imaginations to life!

Justice League collectibles anyone?

I stumbled upon their pop-up store and found amazing gifts to gift to friends and family with their unique collection, and some even for myself too! I found myself exploring 14 Hong Kong lifestyle brands offering a variety of houseware, gadgets, gifts, and toys, making it a perfect destination to hunt for gifts that are exclusive and rare. The 14 DG Studio features brands from Artiart, Cardhoda, Eco Concepts, FLUFFY House, Hoobbe, Hyone, Kilovest, Konstar, MH Blocks, Paris Garden, SOAP Studio, Tea Lab, Team Green, and TINY. In today's post, I'll be featuring some products that I think would be great to have at home, or even for gifting this season.


Some products I got from Hoobbe
Hoobbe Ice Cream Scoop - RM35
Hoobbe T-rex Mould - RM35
Hoobbe Egg Soldier Egg Cup - RM25
Starting of with products from Hoobbe, I was attracted to their houseware collection which is very eye-catching and it makes being in the kitchen fun! Being a fan of dinosaurs, I found myself grabbing an Ice Cream Scoop, a T-rex Mould, and a Souldier Egg Cup. The Ice Cream Scoop is made out of high-quality material that is eco-friendly and it makes scooping for ice cream fun with a dinosaur end as the handle! The T-rex Ice Mould, on the other hand, looks pretty quirky and great as an ice breaker when you have guests around the house. Alternatively, if you really think outside the box, the mold can also be a marzipan mold to be placed as a cake topper too. And just to make my breakfast more exciting, the Egg Soldier Egg Cup is a really cute egg holder that looks like a funny soldier with a big belly the minute you place the egg in the cup. 


Paris Garden easy gardening kit
Also, for those who like gardening or are planning to learn about gardening, Paris Garden offers an interesting array of gardening collections where it comes in a full set of gardening needs, from the pot, the soil and the seed to get you started! When I saw this, I thought of a friend who loves plants and decided that this would be a great gift for her to start off and practice on her green hands. I picked the Basil plant to be given as a gift and the Kitchen Species which offers a Chili, Capsicum and Corriander for you to grow in your instant 'mini garden' at home.

Kitchen Spices - RM40
Comes with soil, Green Pepper, Chili Pepper and Coriander Seeds
Mix the soil with water
And plant the seed, and youre done!
I decided to try planting myself some plants, and I was surprised by how easy it is to plant with this set. The Kitchen Species package comes with the pot, soil, and seeds, and all you need to do to start off is to soak the soil in twice the amount of water, make a hole in the soil to plant in the seeds, then cover up the seeds with at least 1cm with soil. It barely took me 10 minutes and I really can't wait to watch these plants grow. Also, since its a Kitchen Species edition, I can't wait for the plants to grow and use it in my cooking. Now everyone can have their own Herb Garden.


Konstar Master Kitchen Chopper - RM130
Unboxing the Konstar Master Kitchen Chopper
Comes in 4 parts, and its ready to be used!
Having myself a baby now, even the simplest thing like chopping can be challenging when you have a baby who needs all the attention they can get. So, when I found the Konstar Master Chopper, I knew I just had to get it on my hands and into my kitchen. Other than chopping, it also siffs and mixes when needed. Within the box, it only came in 4 loose pieces, the handle, the main body and 2 other parts for shifting and mixing. You can consider this as a multitasking assistant for yourself in the kitchen. It can chop, beat, separate egg whites, spins and grates. It has a lockable top cover and a detachable suction base. Great for anyone who enjoys being in the kitchen, or when they need help. *wink


CardHoda New Card Protector PU Wallet - RM110
Comes with the CardHoda protective aluminium case, and a place to put your cash
Its pretty trendy too! Can fit up to 6 cards and arranges it nicely when you push the lever out
And last but not least would be a little something to keep my credit cards safe, by Cardhoda. the brand offers card protector wallets that feature an aluminum case to protect your cards from any unauthorized RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) and NFC (Near Field Communication) readings. The aluminum case can hold up to 4-6 cards and I find it pretty cool that it nicely arrays your cards when you push the lever to take your cards out. And as a Christmas present, its perfect for any tech-savvy individual who would appreciate any fraudulent activities.

There are also other brands that are equally as amazing from Artiart, Eco Concepts, FLUFFY House, Hyone, Kilovest, MH Blocks, SOAP Studio, Tea Lab, Team Green, and TINY. Honestly, I would list everything they have but I'd really advise you to check out their pop-up stores while you still can!
