The best spots for birthday treats…

1. Oookie Cookie

Best for: Delicious one-bite treats

This local bakery is perfect for kid-friendly bites like chewy cookies, rice krispies and European delicacies from meringues to almond thins. The team’s delicious creations look as exquisite as they taste, with fun and colourful designs that will make for the most Instagrammable treat buffet! The recent Cha Chan Tang Fondant Cake Collection features local classics including Pineapple Bun with Butter, French Toast, Iced Lemon Tea and more. They also offer incredible custom creations limited only by your (or your kid’s) imagination.

2. Dalloyau

Best for: European masterpieces

Parisian bakery Dalloyau is all about exceptional attention to detail and European flair. Specifically for kids, their Baby Bear or The Carousel, each made with banana, white chocolate or chocolate and finished with fondant, serve as works of edible art that are (almost) too good to eat! You can order online for either delivery or pick up at Dalloyau Pacific Place.

3. The Cakery

Best for: Healthier choices

If you’re looking for a birthday cake that opts for the healthiest ingredients, The Cakery is the way to go. Found within Great Food Hall, the Hong Kong cake shop is a big believer in the philosophy ‘you are what you eat’. The team of bakers replace refined sugar with natural sugars, increase the amount of good fats and proteins in cakes, and offer options that are organic, sugar-free, gluten-free and vegan-friendly. 

The best spots for snacks or catering…

1. Artemis & Apollo 

Best for: Lavish catering 

If you’re looking to go all-out, Greek favourite Artemis & Apollo is the way to go. The restaurant offers bespoke dining experiences in their own spaces or can bring the magic of the restaurant straight to your home. And for kids’ parties where you want the adults to be impressed too, we think Greek-style spit-roasted chicken, house-made potato chips, grills and hold and cold mezze are all winning. Or if you feel like Vietnamese, the team can put something together at Le Garcon Saigon or your chosen venue. Contact the restaurants or email to enquire.

2. Pret a Manger 

Best for: Low-key catering

When it comes to easy, fuss-free catering that will please both kids and adults, Pret a Manger is a go-to. There’s a bounty of healthy (and sometimes indulgent) share-sized trays of pre-cut sandwiches, salads and treats to choose from, including French baguettes, club salad and cookies. Order online and opt for delivery or swing past their Three Pacific Place location for pickup. 

3. Great Food Hall 

Best for: Going light and DIY

If you’re thinking of offering light snacks and refreshments — think cut fruit and vegetables, cheese and crackers, and an assortment of drinks — head to Great Food Hall. You’ll find a bounty of kid-friendly snacks sourced from around the globe that are perfect for when you’re keeping it simple at home or planning a Spring picnic.

The best spots for gifts…

1. Shanghai Tang

Best for: Earning serious style points

If you want to opt for a luxurious, sophisticated gift — perfect for those little ones with fashion-loving parents — make a stop at Shanghai Tang. The brand’s mini-sized silk mein lap jackets offer the same craft and classic Chinese aesthetic as the adult versions but in cute mini-me sizing. 

2. Wise-Kids Educational Toys

Best for: Fun gifts that are good for the mind

Wise-Kids is the perfect spot for toys that focus on enhancing children's all-round development through play. From crafts to building construction, puzzles, games and play sets, you’ll find an array of unique and engaging gift ideas kids will think are fun, and parents won’t mind them using! 

3. Kelly & Walsh 

Best for: The forever failproof gift option

A book is always a well-received gift for little ones. Stop by Kelly & Walsh and check out their large selection of little kids’ classics like Goodnight Moon and The Very Hungry Caterpillar, or more unique, Hong Kong-centric options, like My Hong Kong Alphabet. There’s an array of award-winning young adult fiction, as well as age-appropriate non-fiction for those who love learning.

And don’t forget, hosting is about the parents too! Stop by Ellermann for some beautiful ready-made or bespoke floral decorations, and if you’re serving some treats to the grownups, check out the array of beautiful homewares just perfect for hosting at Lane Crawford Home, Joyce and André Fu Living.
