12 gift ideas for the holiday season
The holiday season is here again. It’s a time for some of us to reflect on the year past and to celebrate with those whom we hold dear. As we go in search of presents for the special people in our lives, both online and in-store, it’s easy to get lost in a sea of variety. So in the spirit of the season, here’s our list of gift recommendations based on the classic Christmas carol “The 12 Days of Christmas” that will be perfect for your loved ones and family.
Twelve drummers drumming
Whether its classical symphonies or R&B, everyone loves a good tune. Let your friends tap their feet to the beats of their favorite tracks by gifting them a one month KKBOX subscription. With over 50 million tracks across different genres and languages, their feet will be worn out from all that tapping.
Eleven pipers piping
Surprise your family with a piping hot seafood meal at Palm Beach Seafood. A mainstay in Singapore foodies’ Most Popular lists, this restaurant has earned an array of notable awards as the perfect place to enjoy a selection of Australian Lobster, Blue Lobster and Bamboo Clams.
Ten lords a-leaping
For the leaping lords (or ladies) in your life, the go-getters who never give up, the Nike Air Force 1 is the perfect gift for them. Available in different styles for men and women, its crisp leather and perfectly stitched overlays will make anyone shine.
Nine ladies dancing
We all have women who stood by us through thick and thin, be it our mothers, sisters, best friends or wives. Show your appreciation with a gift from Zalora so they can prance to their hearts’ content at their next Christmas gathering.
Eight maids a-milking
Both men and women deserve a little pampering this season. While a bathtub filled with warm fresh milk is a tad impractical, Herbivore Botanicals Coconut Milk Bath Soak from Sephora comes pretty close. This 100% organic powder moisturises and softens your skin as you soak. Its sweet coconut and vanilla scent calms your mind, leaving you feeling renewed.
Seven swans a-swimming
If you’re looking for a luxurious gift, a charter on the White Sails Yacht* is perfect. You can take up to five loved ones (including yourself) on a trip to Lazarus island where everyone can splash around on kayaks like swans and go snorkeling to see the beautiful corals. The yacht is also filled with deluxe amenities such as three bedrooms, heated showers and a karaoke system.
*Offer not valid on 24, 25, 31 December 2020 and 1 January 2021.
Six geese a-laying
If you know any new parents this festive season, you can’t go wrong with gifting cute fluffy plushies to their newborn “gosling”. Kidmoro has an assortment of toys to choose from pre-school to educational toys that will keep the little ones entertained.
Five golden rings
For the very special people in our lives, the ones we cherish the most, you can show how much you treasure them with a gold ring from Goldheart. Their lovingly crafted jewellery come in an array of intricate designs to choose from. In fact, why not get five?
Four calling birds
Let’s not forget our grandparents who have been using the same outdated phone for years. Surprise and delight them with the latest iPhone 12 from Challenger for as low as S$47 per month when you pay with DBS 24-month Instalment Payment Plan. Not only will they be able to keep in touch with the rest of the family on social media, you’ll get to enjoy handsome discounts and rebates as well.
Three French hens
Take your date out to a literal French hen dinner with tantalising oven roasted chicken poulet and bubbly French champagne at Dusk Restaurant & Bar. Located 100 metres above sea level surrounded by lush rainforest, this is the perfect place for a romantic Christmas dinner with a sunset view of Sentosa Island.
Two Turtle Doves
For your thrill-seeking friends, let them fly like a turtle dove on a Singapore Cable Car ride, where they can take in the beauty of Mount Faber and splendour of Sentosa island. They can even experience a unique Italian themed Fly Me To Italy Cable Car Sky Dining at Faber Peak, 100 meters above sea level.
A Partridge in a pear tree
Finally, if you know a scrooge who doesn’t like receiving gifts, why not invite them over for a nice home-cooked roast turkey dinner? It doesn’t matter if you’re not a great chef because RedMart has you covered with their ready to re-heat herb infused roast turkey. This succulent, cooked-to-perfection turkey will have everyone calling you a fantastic chef (it’ll be our little secret).
