Loft - Gift Ideas

One of the best places to shop for gifts in Bangkok is undoubtedly the Loft, which is located at just 3 branches around the city:

- Loft Siam Discovery (10am-9pm)
- Loft Chamchuri Square (11am-8pm)
- Loft Paradise Park (10am-10pm)

With the festive season of celebration around the corner, the gift shop chain is having a promo called "The World of Ultimate Gifts 2011", running from Nov 9, 2010 until Jan 9, 2011. The stores offer a wide range of gifts of all types for all occasions. You can have a nice look at their selection right on their website, http://www.loftbangkok.com/#/promotion

Here's a few of the funky and cool gift ideas from Loft:

  • Vintage Mugi Magi luggage bags (small-sized) in retro colourful polka dots design - 1,900 baht



  • Mobile phone pouches / bags shaped like an old telephone and an old camera - 660-810 baht


  • Classy Tea strainer / filter set including plate, made of good quality aluminium, from Japan - 240 baht


  • Mini Cooper USB flash drive, with over 15 colour designs - has see-thru glass windows, turning wheels and headlights that turn on while the USB is in use. With a capacity of 2 GB, the flash drives cost 1890-2250 Baht each.


  • Multishot Camera which can take 4 actions in one frame, with a film roll included, available in two colours - gold and silver. Imported from Japan, a camera costs 1,290 Baht.



  • Oscar style golden statuette - 1295 baht; customizable wordings on bottom plaque (3 lines) for a personal touch will cost an additional 100 baht and will take about 2 days. Who says you have to be a star celebrity to win an award?


  • Hairband with horns - 280 baht, for that naughty prankster of a sister to wear to the new year party.


  • Magnet collection, mouse-shaped - 198 baht. We can never have enough of the 'cute' factor in our lives.
