Have you ever wondered what to get your friends for their special days such as birthdays, graduations, or even just to cheer them up? Here is a practical present suggestion. After spending a lot of time trying to find gifts for my friends, I finally learned that sweets are universally loved. As a result, here are some sweets in Ulsan that your friends would be thrilled to receive!
The first gift I would like to introduce are these cute little chocolates. The biggest reason I would like to recommend these chocolates is that they are handmade.
While living in Korea, I had a difficult time finding authentic handmade chocolates. Many chocolate shops and cafes simply use factory-made chocolates and customize the outside packaging. Which, defeats the whole purpose of purchasing expensive chocolates.
However, after a bit of research, I found Adapt. Their handmade chocolates are delicate and had a distinctive taste. To make it even better, the chocolates are packaged in this adorable round tine case that can be reused after finishing the chocolates. A four-piece chocolate bonbon set including the tin case costs 11,000 won.
Adapt (어댑트) Address: 43 Hwajin 4-gil, Jung-gu, Ulsan Korean Address: 울산 중구 화진4길 43 Opening Hours: 11:00 AM - 08:30 PM Closed: Mondays
Do You Like Cookie?
The second gift I would like to introduce are these fluffy cookies from Do You Like Cookie? café. These cookies, in my opinion, are ideal as a welcome home gift for friends and family.
The difference between these cookies and those found in other stores is their wide selection and stylish take-out box, which is suitable for gifting to friends. The take-out box fits about four cookies, which is the perfect amount to not get overwhelmed.
I also liked that they allowed customers to choose the flavors freely. But if I had to make a recommendation, I’d say try their tiramisu, strawberry creme brulee, apple cinnamon crumb, and blueberry cream cheese are my favorites. In addition to tasting fantastic, the flavors are quite distinctive. Definitely a good gift to get for less than 15,000won.
Do You Like Cookie? (두유라이크쿠키) Address: 1185-3 Songjeong-dong, Buk-gu, Ulsan Korean Address: 경기 수원시 팔달구 화서문로 58 Opening Hours: 12:00 PM - 07:00 PM Closed: Tuesdays
Little Bake Shop
The third place for sweets in Ulsan I would like to introduce has a combination of vegan cookies, financier, pound cake, and canelé.
I’ll admit that I cheated a little by naming multiple desserts. But, I can assure you that each of them is delicious and reasonably priced.
I believe this gift is best for buying desserts for a group of friends as they have a wide range of selections. Gifting a good variety of desserts is important because speaking from my experience every time I buy a dessert, there is always someone who can and can’t eat it.
Lastly, not only do they have one of the best cookies, but they have the cutest package ever! They are topped with a ribbon which makes it even more appropriate to give as a gift to friends and family on their special day.
