It’s that time of the year where we want to show our appreciation to our loved ones but we’re also at a loss at what to get them. Fret not as we give you some Christmas gift ideas that are suitable for both him and her but aren’t the typical photo frames or shower set!
This is great for those who are into wellness and appreciate natural scents. Unlike perfumes, it is hard to hit and miss with a person’s preference on the smells, especially if you get single essential oils rather than blends. And if you’re wondering which oil to get, here are some curated ones that will put everyone in the festive mood.
|Frankincense||Known as one of the gifts the Three Wise Men brought to baby Jesus, frankincense has a broad range of uses, from enhancing spiritual and meditative practice to use in beauty routines. Frankincense has an earthy, uplifting aroma that’s perfect for grounding and spiritual connectedness. Get your Christmas prayers ready! In addition to elevated spiritual experiences, Frankincense can help you maintain the appearance of radiant skin to ensure that one looks good and feel good this festive season.|
|Grapefruit||Make it an energising Christmas with this fresh, zesty aroma! Rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene, it is good for the skin and has unique characteristics to start the new year right.|
|Deep Relief Roll-on||If your loved one often works out or has a busy lifestyle, this convenient roll-on combines essential oils such as Peppermint, Wintergreen, Dorado Azul, and Helichyrsum that provide a refreshing, cooling sensation during or after a workout, with an invigorating scent that inspires an upbeat and energetic approach to whatever keeps you active.|

Staycation or holiday
Now, this is not just a treat for your partner but one for yourself too *wink*. For something a little different, why not head onto the Quincy Hotel and request for city drop off services in its exclusive Quincy MINI Clubman for a day of shopping before going back to the hotel to enjoy their sauna or steam rooms.
You and your partner can staycay at EAST in Beijing, which has an Instagram-worthy 3 metre high tyrannosaurus rex displayed at the lobby, decked in festive gear and lights. Moreover, EAST has collaborated with charity organisation Roundabout where guests and staff can fulfil the Christmas wishes of children in need, or donate clothes to the needy in the Qinghai and Xinjiang provinces. If you or your partner are interested in baking or cooking, head on over to their lifestyle café, Domain, to join their gingerbread house making class every weekend before Christmas itself.
Japan and Korea
If you choose to staycay or holiday in a Hilton hotel in Japan or Korea, keep an eye out for their Christmas Train – across properties in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Odawara and Seoul. The train differs from city to city, showcasing beautiful dioramas and displays to take centre stage in the hotel lobby. While serving as an alluring backdrop for your next #instaworthy shot, its main purpose is to rally guests to do good, and raise funds for non-profit organisations and charities. It’s the perfect chance for you to give back this Christmas while spending quality time with your loved ones!
This is a very practical gift but just because it’s practical, all will appreciate it because we all need to charge our smart devices on the go nowadays. Why not combine charging cable, power bank and even a key holder like the one above?
Neis Haus Wheat Straw Cutlery Set (SGD8.50)
Houze Stainless Steel Straw Set (SGD4.72)
Houze Eco-Friendly Foldable Silicone Straw in Pink (SGD3.92)
These gifts are suitable for those who are more conscious about the environment or those who pack their lunches to work. It’s a great gift even for those who aren’t eco-warriors due to an increasing number of merchants not providing single-use plastic straws.
Self Watering Plant Pot
This plant pot is perfect for those who love plants but either don’t have a green thumb or is too busy to water their plants. Besides, it is cute and brightens up any corner.
Cold Brew Tea Infusing Bottle and Teas
Mlesna Singapore Collection 8 Assorted Teas 200g (SGD20.90)
Get this for the tea connoisseur who is able to cold brew his or her tea the night before and then bringing it to the office the next morning. It’s simple to use and will save tons of money in the long run. While you’re at it, why not also get a box of teas?
We hope that you get some inspirations for gifts and have a Merry Christmas!
