A Hong Kong-themed farewell gift is the perfect souvenir for someone leaving the city. Add a personalised touch to these lifestyle gifts for a treasure that’ll be remembered.

With the good news of Hong Kong borders opening up, we can finally welcome our friends and family aboard to pay the 852 a visit! At the same time, we’re facing an exodus of beloved friends and colleagues leaving the city and relocating. From the Star Ferry to pineapple buns and yum cha, Hong Kong has one too many icons that stay close even if you depart the city. And they make amazing farewell gifts too, there’s everything from cards to photo frames, mugs, bags, Hong Kong experiences and more. These Hong Kong brands stock the best souvenirs and farewell gifts and you best believe we’ve shopped at a bunch of them even if we’re born and raised here (and plan to stay here)!

So we say go for all of his “Unspoken Stories, Unsung Heroes” and “Sunset Warriors of Hong Kong” paintings, these postcards ($308 for 13) are perfect to gift someone leaving Hong Kong, they can easily be framed and they’re super affordable.
