Where to buy cool birthday gifts in Saigon
This article will show you exotic stores for an interesting gift on a birthday. Sometimes an expensive gift would not enliven your friend as much as a gift that you put in time and effort for that person's taste. Buying gifts online is okay, but that is not exciting. When you come to a store, which has been curated for that specific domain of interest you'll find surprises, which would even create a memorable gift for your friend birthday.

For the friend who loves art and fountain pens, I've got you covered. Fountain pens are fantastic gifts for everyone who loves scribbling, even your boss would love this gift. Surprise your friend who has always been acquainted with pinball pens with a fountain pen, Lamy, made in Germany is a decent pen without costing a fortune. And even better, buy them a bottle of ink in their favourite colour. Painting and art books are also available, I highly recommend this place to everyone in Saigon.
