Like images out of an electric dream, the Lexon Gift Depot, does not cease to amaze. Its European branded products are laid out in a fashion similar to what you may have experienced in most other corporate accessory shops; neatly arranged, crisp lighting effects on all products and an overall head-turning sleekness. But, the items found here are nothing short of uniquely refined. Have you ever thought to yourself that you have always wanted USB ports from a pea pod, a soup can clock, or a bathroom radio? Maybe even a handbag with a rubber shoe sole? Bizarrely, you may have, nevertheless, step into this shop and find gift items for corporate, home and also do not miss out on a few spoils for yourself.
If you think the luggage, laptop bag and umbrella collections are a stand out, you’re in for a real treat with the endless collection of pens, where you have the option of customising the ones of your choosing, with your very own logos by the Lexon Gift Depot.

In the Gift Depot you can view, from internationally award winning designer collections of Lexon, to items such as the TYKHO Radio. The TYKHO Radio has gone as far as being on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, while receiving much recognition from the Pompidou Centre in Paris. Further branded pens by Cerutti, unmatched clocks by Next Time, some of the most magnificently set desktop organisers, watches by Ungaro, Cacharel, Senator, Nina Ricci and Lexon itself, are a few of the products on exhibit. They are not only in high demand by prominent, world renowned corporations such as BMW, Mercedes, Nokia, Emirates, and Google… but also by everyday customers and the prices at the Gift Depot are as reasonable as they can get.
