For Christmas Shopping in Taipei

Store Announcement

We have received the unfortunate news that Wiz Gift Shop will be permanently closing its doors on the 1st of August, 2022.

In light of this news, we have not decided to immediately delete this blog. However, we may do so at a later date.

Since the Covid-19 global pandemic has kept many of us in the safe comfort of Taiwan, it’s become even more meaningful to send gifts back home this year.

Wiz Gift Shop is an ideal store for foreigners to go Christmas shopping. It is also good for gift shopping for any occasion, like choosing birthday gifts. The products are mainly in English, also it’s only a 3-minute walk from Taipei City Hall MRT.

Budgets for gift exchanging are usually agreed to be either $300, $500, or even $1,000 depending on the game or activity.
