10 delicious gifts to send to your friends and loved ones – some look so good you might even order for yourself!

It’ll soon be two years since the pandemic hit, yet most of us are still holed up at home, patiently waiting for the pandemic to pass.

Although the end seems like a distant future, that doesn’t mean celebrations should be dismissed. Be it a birthday, baby shower, graduation, or even just a random act to show someone that you’re thinking about them, make the most of each celebration and send a little care package to brighten up their day!

Ahead, AVENUE ONE has handpicked a selection of yummy and not to mention, stunning gifts you can send to your loved ones on their special day – or just to show them you care.

A cookie a day keeps the sadness away, so what better than an entire box of jumbo gourmet cookies to lift someone’s spirits?

In spite of the name, Nasty Cookie actually serves up the most decadent cookies on the market. From chunky to crunchy, and deliciously gooey, you can almost taste the luxury in every bite as the brand only uses premium dark couverture chocolates to handcraft these delights.

The Box of 6 (S$30) lets you select from a range of epic flavour combinations such as Banoffee Walnut, OH! Smores, Matcha Mania, and even Ondeh Ondeh! And the best part? Each cookie is individually packed into striking Tiffany Blue boxes that are so pretty you could display them.

Visit the website to make an order or check out Nasty Cookie’s Instagram for fresh flavour releases every month! Delivery is priced at S$10 for orders under S$30, S$5 for orders between S$30 and $44.90, and free for orders above S$45.

One look at Konditori’s Instagram and you would think it’s an artisanal bakery from Europe. In actual fact, this quaint halal bakery sits in the heart of the traditional Kampong Glam district and cooks up one of the most authentic European bakes in the city.

With each good hand-baked from scratch daily, you can be assured that the gift boxes do not stinge on quality. If you’re looking to celebrate a big occasion, the Premium Picnic Basket (S$90) filled with an assortment of fresh breads, cakes, and drinks would be perfect for that. Otherwise, the Box of Treats ($55) would also suffice. You can even write a few heartfelt words to your recipient with an additional Special Greeting Card (S$4).

Do note that orders have to be made on the website within a minimum of two days from the date of delivery. Delivery is priced at S$15 flat islandwide or you can opt for self-pickup from 2.30pm – 5.30pm daily.
