Wrapping up the Year
2020 has been a challenging year as we adapt to the new normal: mandatory mask wearing, conforming to safety distancing, and the novelty of working and schooling from home.
Emerging stronger, better, and wiser, this year has surely taught us many life lessons. Let’s celebrate the ups and downs of 2020 as we look forward to 2021.
Season of joy and giving
As the festive jingle of Christmas and New Year marks the celebratory start of holidays, it is also the season of appreciation for our family and friends. Not forgetting self-love, it is the perfect time for a little self-indulgence for a year well done too.
Spread love and joy with our specially-curated list of gifts, only for you and your loved ones.
For the travel bug
Leisure travel may not be an option now but that doesn’t mean you can’t reminisce about your holiday trips. The instax mini Liplay is a sleek and compact polaroid camera that provides instant print.
The two-in-one camera allows you to snap pictures on the go for your next holiday or a quick print of your last overseas trip using your smartphone. From thirty frames to seven filters, each prints are personalised to your own liking.
Bonus: Relive special moments by using the sound to QR code function, simply scan the QR code on the polaroid film and listen to the recorded sound!
For the tech geek
Welcome to the future with Google Home Mini. An ideal gift for the tech geek in your life or for yourself who appreciate a handy virtual assistant, Google Home Mini is a smart speaker with a built-in Google Assistant. Simply speak to play music, stream shows and movies, and listen to podcasts using your voice. Experience hands-free simplicity in your new smart home.
For the eco-conscious friend
Skip the single use bottled water and bring your own eco-friendly bottle. Lifestraw Go Stainless Steel is an insulated bottle that keeps your water cool for hours. Its membrane microfilter protects against 99.9% of bacteria, keeping your water clean and safe at all times.
Sustainability is more than a gift for both your loved ones and the environment. For each purchase, Lifestraw’s global Give Back Program will also provide one year of safe water for one child.
For the workaholics
Be it working in the office or at home, staring at the screen all day is not only harmful for the eyes but for the skin as well. Indulge yourself or your workaholic friends with DR.JART+ Essential To-Go Skincare Kit for anti-aging nourishment and care.
The kit consists of Cicapair serum, Cicapair re-cover cream, and Dermaclear pH foam. Moisturising and soothing for sensitive skin, the skincare products also protect the skin from UV light and detrimental environmental aggressors. Say hello to a healthy and glowing complexion!
For the alcoholics
Hibiki Whisky is Japan’s award-winning blended whisky. Known to be “Kanzen” (complete), Hibiki Whisky provides a harmonious palate of malt and grain whiskies. Meticulously blended to form a strong yet redolent flavour and aroma, Hibiki Whisky celebrates fine craftsmanship and the essence of luxury.
Perfect for any occasions and as a gift for alcohol connoisseurs, it is one of the best drinks to serve during holidays — neat or on the rocks.
For the ladies
The magic of Harry Potter is eternal, its paraphernalia well-loved by all ages. The Harry Potter x Pandora collaboration invites a new stunning creation — the Spinning Time Turner Pendant. Hand-finished in 18k gold-plated unique metal blend, the pendant is intricately detailed with an hourglass and stars.
The engravings read: “I mark the hours, every one, nor have I yet outrun the Sun” and “My use and value, unto you, are gauged by what you have to do.” The pendant is a beautiful and memorable gift for your loved ones to celebrate feelings unchanged by time.
For the men
Raw and noble, channel confidence with DIOR’s Sauvage Eau De Toilette. Meticulously created with natural ingredients, the radiant top notes provide a fresh scent followed by a lingering woody trail.
Inspired by wide-open spaces, a rocky landscape, and the desert sun, leave a lasting and attractive fragrance wherever you go. Make a bold statement for yourself or for the man in your life.
For quality family time
Experience a relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of life. While a margarita by the beach in Bali sounds great but staycations in Singapore can provide a lavish respite as well.
Book a night or two with Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa and enjoy an epitome of indulgence. From lounging by the pool, full-body spa treatment to gastronomic meals, live the French way in Parisian luxury with Sofitel’s French amenities. Head to the nearby beaches in Sentosa for an authentic oasis of serenity and simply relax, enjoy, and let your stress melt away.
Spend quality time in this tranquil sanctuary with your loved ones.
