Gift Ideas for the Drama Lover in Your Life

Christmas is only 3 days away, and you’re at a loss for what to get that person in your life who likes those newfangled “asian dramas”. Have no fear, I’m here to help you out! If you’re a drama lover yourself, feel free to casually slip these into conversation, just to give friends and family a headstart.

1. A TejiToki (pigrabbit doll) from Fabulous Boys/YAB

2. A boxed drama set off Amazon

I highly recommend both of these

3. Fabulous Boys OST

4. Prince of Lan Ling OST

5. Macaron baking sheet
because the ones in Amour et Patisserie looked too dang good

6. Pre-made Macarons
just incase the baking sheet doesn’t work out

7. Cute Stationary from Asia

8. Facemasks (I prefer Skinfood/My Beauty Diary)

So you can pamper your skin while drama watching… (note: that’s rita orr, not me!)

9. Stuff toy lion (wings optional) from Just You

note – I wasn’t actually able to find it sold online, but I’m sure you could choose any stuffed lion and sew on wings 🙂

10. a subscription to dramafever!
this isn’t sponsored I swear (though DF, if you want, just shoot me an email 😛 ). DF offers a subscription that allows you to watch HD eps without commercials and subs. While there are other sites you can watch dramas on (sensentv is pretty good!), it’s a toss up waiting for subs/having to download (which I don’t like to do).

  1. I received the pig rabbit before as a birthday present! 🙂 I was going to put posters and calendars on there as well….but all the stores I found only sell korean artists. 😦 With such a big boom of kpop and kdramas, tw dramas are losing steam.

  2. You’re right. I lived in Taiwan for a year and even there the merchandize for Taiwanese celebrities was usually limited to CDs and maybe promotional posters. On the plus side, whenever an artist promoted a new CD (ie Raine Yang, Vanness Wu, Peter Ho) they would have a free signing even in Taipei! It’s too bad Taiwan’s merchandise isn’t on the same level as the Korean stuff!

    1. Wait you lived in Taiwan for a year? That’s so cool! I’ve been thinking about going back there and finding an intership/work for a year, but wasn’t too sure about where to start looking for opportunities. But yeah, Taiwan has lots of posters and CDs, but not much else. Sigh. Maybe once/if the Hallyu wave dies down, Taiwan will be able to catch up again.

      1. I taught grades 1-6 in Yilan which is about an hour from Taipei. I still can’t believe how adorable my students were 🙂 Where does your family live?

      2. they’re scattered around taipei/taoyuan, so I’ve only really been there and kending (so gorgeous…like an actual postcard). Aww, I bet they were cute. Did you take Chinese/speak Mandarin before you went?

  3. Awww, I want a pigrabbit doll! My friend, since she loves Pokemon, recalled me commenting about how I didn’t watch Pokemon growing up, but Digimon instead and she bought me the entire first season. 🙂

    I really wanted a ramyun pot for Christmas this year, but alas, didn’t get one 😛

    1. I think the pigrabbit dolls are still sold on YesAsia! Mine was a gift from a friend, so I’m guessing they bought it there. Awww that’s so sweet! Gotta love it when friends remember little details like that.

      Hm.. I’ve heard about these “ramyun” pots but I’m not too sure how they’re different from a normal pot…

      1. It was very sweet. I kind of just want a ramyun pot simply because it looks like just the right pot size for most of my cooking needs 😛
