Mid-Autumn Festival is coming up and that can mean only one thing — mooncakes! Treat your loved ones and the important people in your life with a deluxe Mid-Autumn hamper, a beautifully boxed mooncake gift set, or try some new and unique mooncake alternatives.
The Mid-Autumn Festival is upon us and this time round, we gladly let the calories slide! We know options are endless and sometimes it can be tricky to pick the best without sampling each one. From traditional mooncakes to modern, unconventional flavours and healthier, eco-friendly options, we’ve done the hard work for you and highlighted the top Hong Kong mooncakes and Mid-Autumn offerings this year.
Festive Fruit Hamper with Peninsula Mooncake & Wine or Champagne
Whether it’s a corporate gift or for family and friends, Gift Hampers HK‘s seasonal fruit basket just got festive with the addition of egg custard mooncakes from The Peninsula! You can either opt for just the mooncakes in your hamper or elevate it further by adding either Champagne (Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label) or wine (French Grande Garrigue). It’s all encapsulated in an elegant weave basket (which comes in either a medium or large size). Enjoy free same-day or next-day deliveries on orders ($300 is charged for outlying islands). View all of its Mid-Autumn Festival hampers here.
