All of us are guilty of splurging a little bit (or a lot) when deals and sales are around the corner. It’s just inevitable. And with Singles’ Day luring us with pleasing discounts from our favourite brands, it’s just hard to say no.

Whether it’s for you or for gifting, we’ve got great value-for-money selections ahead, handpicked from 11.11 deals, to get you started.
