Hey friends!

Welcome back to the last post of the gifting series for this Christmas! As the final one, I thought it would be nice to dedicate this to local brands that I've seen around because #supportlocal and also they are some really nice stuff around!

1. Naiise

I would say this is one of the biggest local brands that is in the market and literally everybody goes there to get Singaporean related items since they carry a variety of items. From nostalgia invoking ones to others that may get a giggle or two out of you, this place would be the perfect place to pick out gifts. Some of my favourite and practical gifts (theme of this year - practical you know).

Okay but how CUTE is this tee-shirt! Know someone that's really into their designer tees? This could be the gift for them just to make them chuckle a little because honestly how fun! They have other ones like the Banmian panas (balmain paris) which is probably my fave because the font is almost identical?!

Okay shout out to the kopi-o lovers out there, how apt is this mug? It has such a modern twist to the traditional cup designs and it also seems to hold a good pack of takeaway kopi!

You know me and how much I love my prints and artwork; tell me how adorable is this! This would be perfect for basically anyone and it's such a pretty piece of decor too! I don't think this print comes with a frame but if you need one, just pop down to Ikea or head online, just be sure to get the measurements right!



This is a brand created and designed by a friend of mine and her pieces are always SO ADORABLE with the pastel colours and of course graphics. It started with her love for alpacas and she makes them into daily wearables and it's amazing! If you know someone that loves cute colours and prints, this is the place to go. Here are some of my favourite items available:

Great for any day and anyone, the t shirt comes in three sizes - S,M and L! If you prefer something less pink, there is a black version which is equally adorable!

Little Paca Stud Earrings

3. Singapore Orchid Candle

Brighten your gift receiver's home with this beautiful candle that is made to capture the essence of Singapore. Perfect for a friend that's living overseas or simply someone who enjoys their floral scents! I'm not going to lie that this is a pricey gift but it is rich and made of organic coconut wax blend. They do plenty of other scents that will suit a range of people so be sure to browse and if you fancy going into stores to smell them yourselves, they have some stocks available at Design Orchard.
