This store in Chinatown is an excellent place to shop for traditional Chinese home furnishing products. Glass oil cruets, delicately crafted teapots, and bamboo cutting boards can be purchased here. There is a great book selection here which make great gifts. You can also find them online which is great!

Indicative of the 'new' Chinatown known more for its trendy galleries on Chung King Road and fusion cafes like Via, this gift store stands out amongst the sea of tourist shops. The well-lit and organized interior is slightly reminiscent of a gallery and it features small paintings from local artists as well as large black and white photos of Chinatown taken in the 1950s on its walls. Realm retains a Chinese flavor but brings it upscale by taking typical themes like lotus blossoms and using them for sleek silver vases or minimalist tea sets. There's a large selection of art books in the back of the shop and a variety of items perfect for a hip kitchen or living room. While they're a bit on the pricier side, it's worth the extra money for the functional items that resemble works of art.
