Food

The one good thing that came out of the pandemic is that restaurants are no longer the only means a consumer can access specialty food. This means that foodies can get more bang for their bucks by shopping via direct suppliers of food they crave. Mukbang favourites such as ganjang gaejang (marinated raw crabs), samgyetang (ginseng chicken soup) are some example of frozen food that be easily reheated, particularly useful for busy individuals (and still yummy!) 

Not only that, there's also plenty of gift sets that can be found across commerce sites!
