SINGAPORE (Dec 2): This festive season, show family and friends you care with a meaningful gift

Sparkling good time

Toast the New Year with some bubbly. Nyetimber offers the best when it comes to English sparkling wine. The Classic Cuvée, packed with spicy aromas, is now available for $98 at Analogue Wine Merchant.

Artist edition

Acqua di Parma has launched the Gio Pastori Holiday Season Collection with packaging designed by Pastori. Art by this paper-cut artist is used to wrap fragrance bottles and coffret sets. His signature black-and-white pattern with silver tones is found on the Blu Mediterraneo products (pictured) whereas gold is used for the Le Nobili line.

Fruity goodness

You can have your fruit and use it too. This Christmas, the Body Shop launches the Juicy Pear edition — available in the form of shower gel, soap and body scrub — that is filled with pear extract from Italy.

Sweet treats

Venchi tells a sweet story about a chocolatier and his friends that highlights the magic of Christmas. This is done through the packaging, which has elegant and delicate illustrations that depict the joy and tradition of the festive season. 

Ancient remedy

Neal’s Yard Remedies offers a head-to-toe range of products for the face and body with its signature blend of herbs, botanicals and essential oils. This Christmas, frankincense oil from Oman takes the spotlight and is found in the shower gel, serum, cream and more.

Candy colours

Anna Sui takes festive makeup to a whole new level with the pop vanity case, containing a pallete with colourful candy-like eye and cheek colours. Candy colours are the trend for this holiday season and, with the sparkles, you will be the star of any party.

The gift of writing

Make it personal this year: Give handwritten Christmas cards instead of e-cards. Let the Meisterstück Le Petit Prince Special Edition help you get your thoughts flowing. This timeless writing instrument features the aviator, who is the narrator of the well-loved book. He symbolises the value of mentorship and learning about life through shared exploration.
