New IDEAS For Your Christmas Shopping List
Stuck for gift ideas? Well, that often happens to me. It's the time of the year where you’ll spend most of your day swiping through shopping apps or walking through the mall in search for that special gift. I feel your pain! On top of that, there will always be that one friend or relative that's especially challenging to shop for. For a change, why not give her something that is less conventional this year? Here's our take on some practical and yet unpredictable presents for Christmas.
For The Younger Sister/Girlfriend
A combination of style and practicality makes the best gift. I simply couldn't agree with that more! You definitely can’t go wrong with stationeries as there is an obvious use for it! That said, check out Kikki K’s new launch of its advent calendar for the season. If you have friends who love redecorating their workspace, this will be a perfect surprise.
For The Health Junkies
The highly raved Kombucha tea is THE coolest gift to get if your friend loves trying new health trends. Kombucha tea is a fermented tea consumed by people since ancient times. Not only does it have the same health benefits as regular tea, it also contains beneficial probiotics and antioxidants. Well, it costs $10 per bottle at cafes so now you can enjoy it for the fraction of the price. It requires no special storage and the Scoby can survive for up to 12 months.
The Avid Traveller
Delicate jewellery is a keepsake. However, it is a pain packing them for my weekly travels. I dread unpacking simply because of finding out what’s broken upon landing. I’ve had expensive earrings broken, sunglasses scratched and necklaces tangled during the flight. With that, the ultimate solution is The Daily Edited’s travel jewellery box. To add a personalised touch to the jewellery box, The Daily Edited also provides monogramming services.
The Hair Enthusiast
Good Hair Day, also commonly known as GHD, recently launched its "SMART" hair straightener. The "SMART" Technology refers to its ability to predict what your hair needs. Thus, it can ensure and continually adapt to the optimum styling temperature that suits your hair at all times. GHD can be costly but I guarantee you, it’s worth every penny. It starts up quick, does such a perfect job, lasts long and protects your hair. Before Sephora Singapore, I had to ship mine all the way from Sephora USA via VPost and paid close to $400 for mine. Best Investment Ever.
The Cool Girl
Instead of wrecking your brains for the perfect gift, why not let her choose her own? Gift cards such as Net-A-Porter is the ultimate gift any girl would want. From the IG-famous Cult Gaia Ark Bag to beauty cult balm cleanser from Eve Lom, Net-A-Porter has everything she needs. Also my ultimate go-to gift for every lady in my life.
