Delight your daughter with a feminist purchase
Empower your daughter (and support a Hong Kong-based mumpreneur) with a friendly, feminist t-shirt or cap from Our Girls Gang. We believe girls do rock and all young ladies should be encouraged to slay their our own dragons. Oh, so many cute options.
Celebrate fabulous women with bubbles made by a woman!
If you’re looking for a way to say ‘you’re incredible’ to a special female in your life, buy her a bottle of Nyetimber bubbles. Nyetimber’s Head Winemaker, Cherie Spriggs, is the first female winemaker to win Sparkling Winemaker of the year, PLUS she’s the first non-French winemaker (male or female) to snatch the title. Inspired! Nyetimber is an English sparkling wine that is giving French Champagne a run for its money, so it’s a great gift. You can buy a bottle in Hong Kong from Watsons Wines now, or look at for it at luxury bars like M Bar at the Mandarin.
