This could be the perfect folding bicycle for a city as congested as Hong Kong and Macau’s cobbled roads. It folds down to a portable, practical size and can be taken on other forms of public and private transport. It can also be taken inside (homes, offices, bars) so it is less likely to be stolen. The tough treasure is made of a steel frame, efficient and puncture-resistanttiress, handmade with high build quality and a design that has been refined over 25 years.

The unisex brand has been making waves in the world for extraordinary skincare solutions. The six kits are collectively titled “The Enigmatic Mind”, with each kit celebrating an influential social psychology experiment that rose to prominence in either the 1950s, 60s, or 70s. The Association Gift Kit references the small world experiment, and how we connect to seemingly random strangers. It comprises a closely related trio of formulations: Parsley Seed
Facial Cleanser, Parsley Seed Anti Oxidant Facial Toner, and Parsley Seed Anti Oxidant Serum. Packaged in a practical, reusable amenity case, the kits are wrapped in sleeves inspired by social psychology books of the era; this is the present he wishes to have.
