Ok, so you might not be able to buy a brand new flat screen TV for the change in your pocket or a shiny new laptop for the cost of filling a parking meter, but Hong Kong's shops, malls and markets still have the prices to help you fill Santa's sack without emptying your wallet.
If you're plotting on bringing back T-Shirts saying "I Love Hong Kong", you might want to take a look at our list of the Best Hong Kong Souvenirs highlighting some slightly more exciting gifts you can load up on in the city - from suits to pottery. Films and DVDs are always a good stocking filler and Hong Kong has some blockbusters, from classic Kung-Fu with Bruce Lee to gangster flicks that give the Godfather a run for its money - find the 10 best in our round up of the best Hong Kong movies. Of course instead of bringing them from Hong Kong, you could instead bring them here - try the hotel and flight packages on Zuji for some great deals.
