Gift-worthy ideas to consider now

It's been a crazy year for retail, and it's about to get even crazier, albeit in a different way. Folks will undoubtedly be doing their purchases massively both online and offline, resulting in backlogs, long queues, missing packages, and mishaps of all sorts. To avoid all that, why not get your festive shopping done earlier this year.

Here, we've compiled a list of gifts to get for any occasion—whether it's for your booze buddies, your techie brother, that hard-to-please colleague, your lovely significant other, or simply just as a treat for yourself. Go crazy people.

Amazin' Graze Holiday Collection

The Southeast Asian healthy snacks brand is back this year with festive season treats that not only look good and taste good, but are good for your body too. So pick a health-conscious friend to gift to, or just treat yourself to limited-edition boxes of smooth nut butters, festive brownie chips, yummy granolas, and more, all beautifully adorned in packaging by artist MayLii Koo. Boxes of these are bound to bring a smile to anyone's face.

August Berg X Morris & Co.

A statement timepiece and a heartfelt gesture all in one, this new collab collection is everything one can ask for when looking for a gift meant for a special someone. Find motifs that have literally stood the test of time, printed on a dial that can be engraved with a personalised message of your choosing. Get a pair of them, customised according to you and your giftee's preferences, and you're all set for a meaningful holiday season.

Oppo Reno 4 Pro

When it comes to smart tech, one of the best new entries this year has got to be the Reno 4 Pro smartphone. It's priced in the mid-range category, yet delivers features more often seen in higher-end models. The camera is arguably its main draw, with photo and video capabilities that will make any Instagram fiend blush. Get the Starry Night design for your naughty friends and the Silky White for those who have been nice to you this year.

Temple Cellars Canvent Calendar

Got a craft beer lovin' friend? Get him/her one of these and you'll become instant BFFs. Everyone's favourite bottle shop Temple Cellars is selling them in two variants—a general Craft Beer Canvent Calendar and an IPA Canvent Calendar. Both feature 24 delicious cans of beer at great value, delivered fresh from some of the best breweries around the world. Simply open one each day as you count down to a boozy Christmas.
