Whether it’s a farewell, a birthday, a teacher appreciations day or another celebration that needs an awesome gift – some inspiration can always come in handy! We know all the hotspots in Saigon, including some great places to get you that memorable present. Here you go.
Giving something personal is always nice. A personalized water bottle is even better – let’s face it, can’t have enough water bottles in this town! And one with your name or life motto on it is even better. We love these personalized water bottles by Hamper Vietnam. Looking sleek, re-usable, made of natural materials and uber practical, this is the perfect gift!
A Cook Book with a cause
We just love this beautiful cook book by Family Favourites. Our tribe starts cheering when we cook from this little book. It’s packed with uncomplicated, every day dishes to cook for family and friends. And all for a good cause, because proceeds go directly to the writers, 4 fantastic Filipino domestic helpers in Singapore. Double gifting we say! Don’t forget to order a bit in advance as it will be sent to your doorstep.
Bouquet of Compliments
This one comes from our teacher gift list (and is one of the teachers favorite presents to receive we heard), but it is great to give to anybody. Because who doesn’t like a compliment? For the birthday of your BFF, the farewell of your sports coach or for your mom on Mother’s day. Hand out some plain cards and ask everyone to write, draw or craft a heartfelt compliment on it. Buy a nice bunch of flowers, like the ones at Ted&Anna and tie every compliment to a separate flower. He or she will be over the moon with this beautiful bouquet of compliments!
Gift boxing to the max
This personalized gift box is too cute for words! Assemble your favorite images and head to lovinbox to make your own gift box, personalized with all your pics. You can even add a little present or note inside.
A mighty cool map
Here’s another fun idea for a gift. A map of Saigon and no, not just your everyday map, one of My Mapz. The design is super savvy and stylish and the quality is tip-top. This map gives something extra to any interior. And it’s a great memory for when you move somewhere else.
Trend-setting concept store and cafe l’Usine offers besides a yummy lunch & coffee and hip clothing brands, also cool lifestyle accessories. If you can’t choose, no worries, they also do gift vouchers. Bingo!
If you’re pampering a person who could do with some relaxation, head to Saigon’s best spa’s! You can never fail with a gift voucher from the stunning spa Apothiquaire or one of the other great massage salons in Saigon.
House of Barbaard
But pampering isn’t something only women enjoy… House of Barbaard has refined the art of creating a man’s haven in the form of a barbershop where men can relax and unwind. Get a gift voucher or just go and make an appointment in advance. All your pal needs to do is show up.
A movie voucher or tickets for The World of Heineken will also make a great gift. The WOH has one of the most spectacular views of the city and is a museum, an experience, a bar, and some more. There are only two WOH’s in the world, so it’s a truly unique experience. Did we mention the bar?

Beautiful Christmas gifts from Saigon
What about giving something exceptionally nice, something you can only buy here in Vietnam? In this digital world where every purchase seems a click away, these kind of presents are getting rare. But we spotted a few nice ones. From Saigon with love.
Saigon based brand Pretty Simple believes in living life the pretty simple way. Which in their case, means beautiful bags in pretty designs while keeping the earth clean as well. Basically it’s guilt-free shopping, people! We have our eye on our this pretty (and not so simple) laptop cover.
Saigon’s very own Workshop Candles has taken some special Christmas scents such as pine, amber and cinnamon and put them in 3 beautiful candles. Perfect Christmas presents, especially for loved ones with dark and cold winters.
Vietnamese jewellery brand Bloom will make sure that your Christmas shopping will be a total hit this year. Their store in Saigon Centre offers plenty of choice in the lovely shiny department. Earrings, necklaces and bracelets, all equally nice. Tick, tick, and tick, those presents are done!

Snap Cafe and the Mekong Merchant really took the giving back part by heart.

All wishes are from disadvantaged children, coordinated by the Christina Noble Foundation.

Saigon without motorbikes is like Paris without the Eiffel Tower! With the traffic getting worse each year, the quickest way to go around the city is without doubt by motorbike. You can buy one, but we like renting one since it includes repairs, monthly service and a few other advantages. Khannh Hoang motorbike rental has all types of motorbikes for rent, from a solid Honda to a hip Vespa. Mr Khanh is very reliable and the service is A-okay! Don’t forget to get a motorbike driving licence- the one from back home won’t do and it’s strongly recommended.
If you’re trying to reduce your plastic usage or go more green, this is the place to go to! But you can also just go because of all their great products. Refill your hand wash dispensers, shampoo bottles or soap jars with their nice smelling soaps. Buy bamboo tooth brushes or make up items that are beautiful as well as biodegradable . And stock up in other useful items that are nice to you ánd to nature. We’re massive fans!
Lai Day has outlets in District 2 and District 7.

Safety first! Not a bad idea, wearing a helmet in Ho Chi Minh City when driving your motorbike… and that’s an understatement. It’s also obligatory by the way. You can buy helmets on every corner, but you might want to invest in a slightly more solid one. Andes Helmets sells good quality helmets and there are stores all over the city. We like the one in D3.
250 Nguyen van Huong, D2
Motorbikes are not the only way to get around Ho Chi Minh City and in particular D2. A bicycle might come in handy too! The Bike Shop has good quality bikes and biking gear. And Nutcase helmets for kids. They also do repairs, and the service is excellent and reliable. Go on, give it a try. You know what they say: four wheels move your body, two wheels move your soul..
42 Pham Hong Thai, D1
Although the temperatures in Saigon might be way above what you are used to when exercising, don’t give up on your sports! It’s not easy to find all the sports gear you need in Saigon, we’ve been there, but this is the place. Certainly don’t expect to find everything, however this is a good place to start… for helmets too by the way. In case you’re out of luck and can’t find what you’re looking for, the street is filled with sports gear shops, so you could try one of those.
