If your friend likes old Hong Kong, here are a few ideas for gifts you can order online at Gwulo.com. We deliver worldwide:
Photos of old Hong Kong
These are high-quality prints of photos from my collection, ready for framing. They date from the 1880s to the 1970s, and show some aspect of Hong Kong life that caught my eye.

Coffee-table book of old Hong Kong photos
If you'd rather have a collection of photos, I recommend this lovely big book from FormAsia.
The largest photos are printed across two pages and measure 71cm x 27cm (that's 2' 4" x 10.5" in old money), so there's lots of detail to see.
