“Do you think he will like this gift?”  “Do you think she will find it useful?” “Is giving vouchers too impersonal?”

The most wonderful time of the year is fast approaching and the malls are filled with shoppers bustling around for presents. It’s so easy to get caught up with the pretty decorations and the sales. But shopping for your friends and loved ones can be a bit stressful and also a laborious affair, even for those with a PhD in shopping.

  • The Beauty Enthusiast

A crowd favourite for beauty buffs are luxury bath and body care essentials from Crabtree & Evelyn, Innisfree Face Mask or even Laneige Sleeping Mask – grab them quick as they’ll be flying off the shelves this Christmas.

  • The Crafty One

One for handmade presents, the Crafty One will cherish and appreciate their present because they value the love, time and effort taken to make it. Regardless if its handmade toys, ornaments or cards, they will love it, especially when it’s done by the hands of little ones. The best way to identify a Crafty One is usually those who are also crafty themselves or grandparents, godparents and parents of little bubs.

  • The Tree Hugger

An advocate for saving the planet, buying the right Christmas gift can be tricky as almost most things on the market is destined to end up in a landfill.
