Living Room

1. Give your friend who loves lounging on the couch the irresistibly soft and luxuriously cosy uNap Cuddle Blanket, $69.90 or two for $98 (U.P. $139.80), OSIM. Perfect for afternoon naps and travels, too!

2. Your friend who loves hoarding fashion magazines will get a kick out of receiving this Magazine Bag, $45, Egg3. Finally, she will be able to store her collection in style!

3. Know a big Star Wars fan? Gift him or her with this pewter-crafted Yoga Figurine, $150, Royal Selangor. A collector's item, indeed!

4. Add a pop of colour to your friend's neutral tone-dominated home. This Serax Wire Red Vase, $69.95, homestolife, will give any space a stylish punch.

5. The elegant Fossil Collections Singapore Lady, two pieces for $118 and three pieces for $168, Takashimaya, is an apt gift for the number one lady in your life: your mom.

6. Your newlywed friends who just moved into their new HDB flat will appreciate an ottoman that doubles as storage. Fischer Round Storage Ottoman, $239, Crate&Barrel.

7. Here's another gift for your newlywed friends who are also new homeowners: The Belgium-made Arcadian Carpet, $159.90, Cromly Shop, which spells luxury and contemporary sophistication.

8. Your friend or sister who loves anything floral, pink, and girly will appreciate this Ashlyn Anne Cushion, $19.90, Precious Thots.

9. Looking for a one-of-a-kind and exquisite gift? This Handmade Copper Filigree Teapot from Nepal, $90 to $180, The Social Store at Suntec, is a stunning work of art that will shine in any living room.

10. We all know that one person who's obsessed about cleaning and keeping all things sparkly, neat, and organised. What better gift to give to her than the Philips PowerPro Aqua (FC6401) Vacuum Cleaner, $599, departmental stores island-wide? It can vacuum and mop the everyday mess from the floor in one stroke. It's suitable for all floors, so she can seamlessly switch between cleaning hard and soft floors. It also saves her time from having to mop and vacuum floors separately. (You will love it so much you'll end up buying one for yourself, too!)


1. For family members and friends who get stiff necks easily, give them this Signature Neck Pillow, $120, The Tatami Shop. This tatami pillow is made from a material called igusa, which is a water rush plant that grows in the southern part of Japan. Not only does this pillow have a natural and relaxing grassy aroma, it also relieves stiff and tired necks and reduces tension, promising a good night's sleep.

2. Let your travel-happy friend wake up to the view of the world—the world map, that is. She will be totally inspired to get up and follow her wanderlust fantasies. Map Print Fabric, $18, Cat Socrates.

3. Your friend's bedroom deserves a cosy atmosphere courtesy of the Klabb Table Lamp, $49.90, Ikea. The turquoise colour contributes to a serene ambience.

4. Here's a gift perfect for your hardworking colleague who has been stressed out lately: the Kartell Dice Scented Candle, $135, Robinsons The Heeren.

5. Get your parents the gift of luxurious comfort—the Tempur Original Pillow, from $249 (small), Tempur Sleep Sanctuary, will help align their spine when they’re sleeping on their side or back and alleviate any discomfort.

6. Surprise your bachelor or bachelorette friend with this uber-cool gift: Ministry of Chair's Orange BeanBag Sofa Bed, $159.90 (U.P. $339.90), Cromly Shop. This smart and space-saving furniture transforms from lounger into daybed in mere seconds.

7. Both kids and adults will adore this too-cute and too-fluffy Moray Doggy Cushion, $12.40 (U.P. $24.90), Akemiuchi. Comes in grey, too.

8. A practical gift that will be appreciated by your friends, especially those who rent a small space and sleep on single beds, is this Organic Cotton Jersey Duvet Cover with Red Border, $63, Muji.

9. You can enjoy your favourite music or movie without interrupting your partner who's sleeping soundly next to you, thanks to Klipsch Reference R6i On-ear Headphones, $199, Tat Chuan Acoustic Webstore and Tat Chuan Acoustic Authorised Dealers. The headphones are equipped with a 40mm custom-tuned driver and on-ear, closed earcups, and they deliver awesome sound quality and powerful performance.
