My Five Favourite Products from the Rouge Asian Decor Shop

I picked out five of my favourite items from the shop, which will give you an idea of what’s on offer. I’ll start with this Black Japanese Sake Set. It’s an excellent gift for a friend who is partial to a sip of sake. You get a flask and four little cups which come packaged in a very stylish black gift box. The flask is 13cm high and 6cm in diameter while the cups are 3.8cm tall and 6cm in diameter – £25 for the set.
