Sometimes in life, you get really busy and caught up with work or your life that you just somehow forget to buy the perfect gifts for all of your loved ones.
It’s not that it isn’t important, it just slips your mind. We get it. And we’re not here to nag at you, but rather, save you the embarrassment of telling your loved ones that you bought them gifts at the last minute.
Here are gifts that you can purchase that will look like you’ve planned this gift since weeks ago!
Here’s a gift that you can gift to your loved ones for a jolly good time. Instead of heading out for drinks, bring the cocktails to their house with LAIBA. Curate your own box of cocktails or simply purchase the LAIBA Gift Set. This set comes with eight of their luxurious and unique cocktails packaged in a classy black box. It also comes with a complimentary gift card so you can indicate a message for your recipient. The message will be handwritten on the card, making the gift that much more personal.
There are also other bundles that you can purchase.
One bottle of cocktail costs S$12.50 and you can browse the selection here, while the LAIBA Gift Set costs S$105. LAIBA offers free delivery as long as you order a minimum of six bottles. You can also choose the specific date of delivery at checkout. Otherwise, orders placed after 1pm on weekdays and 11am on weekends will be delivered the next working day.
When it’s a last minute gift, you would probably not have any patience to wait for the item to be delivered. After all, it could take days, and if it arrives late, it would make it too obvious that you bought the item late.
Thus, it’s great that shops have this option called Click-and-Collect. This helps to save so much time because it ensures that you don’t encounter a situation where you head down to a store only to find out that the item you want is no longer in stock.
For the gym-enthusiasts, you can consider getting them this black duffel bag with bold webbing tape. This is durable and roomy, so your recipient will definitely be able to fit all of their gym needs – a towel, toiletries, change of clothes and shoes, water bottle – in this bag.
Keep your loved ones warm and cosy with this Marimekko Oversize Hoodie. This hoodie is in halo brush and has a small adidas logo embroidered on the left chest. On the back of the hoodie is a golden flower graphic that is unique to Marimekko.
T2 Tea Paws for Tea
For pet owners who also love tea, you can consider getting them the Paws for Tea series from T2 Tea. The set comes with two boxes of tea and a beautiful mug with either pictures of dogs or cats on it. It also comes with its own similarly-designed lid.
The dog set comes with Melbourne Breakfast and New York Breakfast while the cat set comes with French Earl Grey and Gorgeous Geisha as the flavours of tea.
Kaiby Rainbow Baby Box
For those whose loved ones have just welcomed a new addition to their family, you can get them a gift box filled with baby toys for them to have new tools to stimulate their baby. This particular Rainbow Baby Box comes with three cloth books and two sets of mini high contrast cards.
This Rainbow Baby Box retails for S$53 and can be ordered here. Order before 11am and receive the gift box on the same day by 9pm.
Bearloon 3D Reindeer Gourmet Hamper
Take a look at this Christmas hamper that comes with an adorable transparent 3D reindeer balloon with small red balloons inside! This will set you apart from those who send regular Christmas bundles thanks to the cute addition.
This hamper is essentially every chocolate-lover’s dream basket, because it comes with eight different kinds of chocolate treats that will be enough to last them at least a couple of days. And to add on to the festive season, the hamper also comes with a 20cm Santa plush toy that they can display every Christmas season. This will also give them a reason to think of you whenever they celebrate Christmas in future!
Customisation and delivery can be done on the same day as long as you order before 2.30pm. This hamper is available for S$128 and you can order it here.
Casio G-SHOCK GM-2100CH and GM-S2100CH
This Christmas, why not splurge on both yourself and your partner and get this pair of matching Casio G-SHOCK analog-digital watches?
This is the GM-2100CH and GM-S2100CH in the latest colourway – chic black with red, gold, and green accents. These colours are perfect for this holiday season.
The GM-2100CH retails for S$329 while the GM-S2100CH retails for S$309. Simply order online and you can opt to pick it up at any of the nearest stores on the same day.
The Imprint Laptop Sleeve
If your loved one has just bought a new laptop recently, you can surprise them with this laptop sleeve from The Imprint. It is made from high quality saffiano reinforced vegan leather, which means that it’s cruelty-free! You can also customise it and have your recipient’s name monogrammed on the front for an additional S$4.90.
You can purchase this for 13-inch, 14-inch, or 16-inch laptops from just S$53.90. Click here to place an order and wait for the confirmation to self-collect it!
KLOSH Dewdrop Diffuser
We all love the experience of walking into a room and instantly getting a whiff of a good scent, and we’re sure your loved ones would appreciate it too! However, instead of getting them a typical reed diffuser, get them this Dewdrop Diffuser from KLOSH.
Their diffusers come in four different designs – Neat Herbs, Clarity Shell, Bright Orange, and Primm Flower – and they are all inspired by the four seasons of Japan. The diffusers are made with real flowers, so they don’t just smell good, they also look really aesthetic.
They are available for S$39.90 each and you can pick them up from a KLOSH store near you. Click here to order.
For something a little more romantic for your partner, you can consider this gift set from Bloomback that comes with a floral display diffuser, a personalised birthstone bag charm, and a box of flower soap.
This bundle is priced at S$125 and you can enjoy same-day delivery on weekdays if you order before 2pm. Click here to purchase now!
If your loved one is always cooking and eating steak at home, you can purchase this Steak Cutlery set for them! Meat-lovers would know how annoying it can get when a steak knife is not sharp enough to cut through meat properly. You end up exerting a lot of strength just to eat your food, and it becomes instantly unpleasant, even if it the food is delicious.
Thankfully, this 12-piece set by WMF is crafted with their Cromargan 18/10 Stainless Steel, and the steak knives have a specially designed serrated edge so they’ll stay sharp even after using them for prolonged periods of time.
Watch your loved one’s face light up in happiness as they are finally able to cut through thick meat like it’s butter.
This set is available for S$99 and can be purchased conveniently in-stores at Takashimaya, Metro, BHG, Tangs, OG, and Isetan.
