5 Cute Christmas Gift Ideas for a Chingu Bitten by the Hallyu Bug
You'll receive finger hearts from your friend in return
Being away from your besties during the holidays gives you all the more reason to gift them with something extra thoughtful. Here are some ideas for your friends who are into all things K-related:
Munch, munch, munch
Nothing says “I love and care for you” more than—you guessed it—food. It’s simple, practical, and gives you the liberty to mix and match the snacks based on the recipient’s preference. Visit a nearby Korean store or order online and stock up on soju, ready-to-cook tteokbokki or corn dog, hotteok mix, ramyeon, and more.
Make her skin glow with her favorite Korean skincare brand
From snack box to pamper box—get your friend some of her favorite skincare products. You’ll never go wrong with products like sheet masks, serums, and BB cream.
Book Hangeul lessons for two
If you’ve always dreamt about learning a new language like Hangeul, this is the sign that you’ve been waiting for. There are various language centers and freelance tutors available that offer online classes for small groups or even private sessions. It’s fun to learn with a friend. Take it from us.
Get her “front row” tickets to her favorite Kpop group’s online concert
If there’s one positive thing that this lockdown brought to us, it’s the opportunity to see and watch our favorite idols perform from the best seats—in the comfort of our own home. If your friend’s favorite group has any upcoming online fan activity or concert, book her a ticket and cheer along with your friend.
