We all know that one person. You try asking subtly what they want for Christmas and they reply with extremely unhelpful phrases like “I don’t want anything”, “just give me a big hug” or “a small pigeon would be nice”. You’re going to get them something, the least they could do is guide you, right? Luckily, BloomMe is here to do the leg work for that elusive person, and give you some ideas of what to get the person who has everything (but the present you’re about to gift them).
Silk Pocket Square
Stylish, quirky, and simple, you cannot go wrong with giving the man who has everything a unique pocket square. With fun and Hong Kong themed colours, these silk pocket squares won’t break the bank and are ideal for giving to work colleagues and friends who like a little razzle dazzle in their lives. We love this Hong Kong Districts pocket Square from G

Deep Tissue Massage Therapy
Is your significant other super outdoorsy and sporty? What better way to treat that adventurous someone than to 60 minute Deep Tissue Massage from a trained physiotherapist? At Sutherland-Can Centre in Central, all of the masseuses are trained in remedial exercises and Swedish massage techniques (just to name a few) and gifting someone a massage like this for Christmas may just be what their cranky body needs.
19F, World Trust Tower, 50 Stanley Street, Central
Bespoke Hair Treatment with cut & finish
A little bit of pampering and a new look to bring in the new year can never go wrong when gifted. Gentleman’s Tonic knows how to give a stylish cut, and their trained staff can cater and wow even the fussiest man when it comes to a haircut. If you’re looking for something to give to a sibling, close friend, or someone who badly needs a sprucing up, book in for their next treatment with the Artistic Director and look forward to giving someone the best hair do they’ve ever seen (cue wind machine and dreamy music). They also pair their pampering with cocktails named after famous gents like Earnest Hemmingway. Cocktails and a fresh cut? You can’t complain!
Sun Lee Building, 43-49 Wellington St, Central
HK Beer Club 3-Month Subscription
For the man that has everything but still needs his beer, the HK Beer Club will send your lucky recipient 8-12 different beers a month to keep them happy. Gifting this subscription is perfect for those looking to learn more about beer and appreciate the wide variety of flavours and products in Hong Kong. Each purchase also comes with a VIP membership to the Bottle Shop and discounts on products.
Manicure Makeover and Soft Gel
Who could say no to a soft gel manicure, hand exfoliant, mask, and a massage? In one of the chicest and most Instagrammable salons in Hong Kong, you can gift the women who has everything the fabulous manicure she will cherish for a long time. It’s important to take time out of our busy schedules to treat ourselves, and you can bet your bottom dollar that the person you gift this to will love the chance to do just that.

Vinosource Hydrating Facial
2017 has been a tough year, especially on our skin (pollution, stress, glitter at festivals etc.). For the special lady in your life, your mother or significant other, gifting them a hydrating facial from leading French skincare experts can make all the stress of the past year fade away. Choose from a 50 minute or 80 minute facial followed by a consultation and sample products, and watch the person you love glow with the power of grapes and love.

Aerial Bamboo Yoga Private Workshop
Aerial yoga suspended from bamboo on a beach? Rest assured that she doesn’t have that booked every week. If your giftee works harder than a work horse and craves the alternative side of life, the best gift you can give them is a unique workout in a beautiful location. Aerial yoga is a fantastic way of finding balance in life, as you practice suspended off the ground performing twists and stretches that defy gravity,
The studio also offers workshops where you practice aerial yoga in Central, then hike over to Tai Long Wan to practice yoga hanging from a bamboo sling by the water.
If you’re looking to get into yoga more as a gift for yourself but don’t know where to start, check out our handy guide to studios near you.

Treatment Gift Cards
Is your giftee couple fussy as heck? Then let them do the leg work and choose their own gift! By giving someone a BloomMe voucher, they can go through and choose a treatment that sounds perfect for them. Use your BloomMe account email and choose the amount you want to gift, the voucher will be sent straight to your email and you can choose if you want to hold off on sending the voucher to your gift couple. Also keep an eye out for some super duper cute gift cards which may make you want to keep the voucher all to yourself (we won’t tell anyone, we promise!)
Cost: vouchers start at $100
Dinner for Two in the Dark
Don’t invite the couple over to your apartment and turn off the lights (hilarious but not festive), instead gift them with a 3-course dinner, free-flow of alcohol, and a completely blacked-out room to give them a taste sensation like no other. The couple are led into a dark room and served a surprise menu where they will guess what delicious foods they are consuming. Afterwards, compare notes to see what you got wrong and right in the dark. Dialogue in the Dark is dedicating to raising awareness differently-abled people by recreating what meals are like for vision impaired Hong Kongers. A wonderful way to understand the challenges some face every day, this gift will go beyond just a meal and a drink in the dark.
Dialogue in the Dark
Tsing Sha Highway, 87 Ching Cheung Road, Lai Chi Kok, Hong Kong
Cost: $2000 per couple, extra $1000 for any additional members
