Who’s excited for Christmas?
I am! It’s nearly Christmas and I am so ‘over’ trying to navigate busy Singapore shopping malls after work every year. So, I’ve decided to go online for present shopping instead. I’m even more excited now because I’ve been trawling Amazon.sg and it has some great deals on its Christmas store for gift shopping this holiday season!
Being slow to take up online shopping, I hadn’t realised just how much you can find on Amazon. There seem to be millions of products, from beauty items to toys, electronics, and home and kitchen goodies. And the prices are really good. Also, for this holiday season you can enjoy two to three days of free local delivery with no minimum spend on eligible orders for a limited time period – ultra convenient. The other thing that caught my eye is the fact that I can opt to have presents gift-wrapped. With my wrapping skills, this sounds very appealing.
So, my first task was to find something for my two-year-old grandniece and my ten-year old-grandnephew (that makes me sound very old!). I also had to shop for my two daughters who are in their early 20s, and my mum who is 90. It’s a pretty varied and challenging range!
Here are a few Christmas presents that have caught my eye…
I bought some EarPods for Michaela for her birthday but they don’t stay in very well! She’s getting roller blades so I thought these Bose Frames Audio Sunglasses would be perfect for when she’s out and about on them – and she won’t get distracted by trying to keep the EarPods in.
For my mum, I like these ToBeCalm candles. I love their scents, and as a present they’re small enough that mum can easily take one with her back to the UK. The one I chose is called Singapore Journey, so it will be something that reminds her of us when she goes back, too.
Also for my mum, as she doesn’t like to spend money on mani-pedis, I like the look of the Vintage & Co Nail Care Set.
Both of my daughters are vegetarian, but as Georgia’s living on her own, she’s really getting into cooking and has been asking for this Bish Bash Bosh! cookbook for a while. Very happy to see it here!
I bet she’d love to get her hands on this Ice Blue KitchenAid too, but maybe that’s for next year!
Because Michaela travels a bit, I thought this Baylis & Harding Cocktail Hour set would be perfect. It comes in a cool bag, and includes body wash, shower creme, and hand and body lotion. The peach Bellini and raspberry rose fragrances sound lovely and feminine.
I like the fact that this Frozen sticker book is reusable, otherwise it’s a bit of a waste. At two years of age, my grandniece is very into the whole ‘girlie’ princess thing already, and she loves the movie, so I think this will go down well.
For my ten-year-old grandnephew, these X-mini Nova earplugs will do nicely as they fit both Apple and Android. He loves a flight simulator programme and also creates his own videos, both of which can be pretty noisy to everyone else around him.
This Bubble Bath with Nutcracker theme is from Michel Design Works, and is something I thought could do for both of the little ones to share!
And just so I can make sure I am still looking cool when I have to take photos at events this pink Canon EOS M100 KIT (EF-M15-45mm) DSLR Camera, can be my Christmas present to myself!
