The holidays are almost here! While it may be a bit different from what we’re used to, with an air of uncertainty looming, it’s still a season for celebrating and spreading love and hope. If you need a little help in the inspiration department, you’re in luck. Here are some lifestyle picks that will spark hope for better days — not just for yourself but also those who you are gifting them to.
Spread joy with a little sparkle
A piece of jewellery is always a great gift idea. Aside from it being a symbol of a message you want to impart, if you pick right, it can last beyond the holidays — and perhaps even be passed on. A jeweller for 50 years now, Lee Hwa Jewellery is a good place to look at for gifts you’d be proud to share. Their Christmas Collection, in particular, is where you should start. Inspired by spreading hope, continuing to dazzle and sharing love, the collection — which features new pieces from their Destinée (made for the modern woman who enjoys the finer things in life), Purple Gold (a rare industry breakthrough made with 80 per cent gold and 20 per cent other metals), Twinkle Diamond, Swing Star and diamond ranges — ignites the true spirit of the holidays.
Whether it’s a necklace for your mum or a matching bracelet for your bestie, there’s a piece that symbolises not just the Christmas season but also the love you have for the special people in your life beyond the season; there are different gifting options available to fit various budget ranges (under SGD700, SGD500 and SGD300). And it's the perfect time too because they offer up to 50 per cent off as well as additional cash vouchers when you buy from their stores. If you're keen to shop online, they also have a free gift of a Majesta pendant (worth SGD228) with a minimum spend of SGD300 on their site.
Double the gift-giving when you pick up The Safari Collection Eye Trio from Chantecaille’s Fall 2020 Collection. This elephant-inspired eyeshadow palette has three shimmery shades that are perfect for holiday looks. You get to support Space for Giants, a conservation initiative for Africa’s elephants, while you’re at it too.
Light up for the season
Take a whiff of the holidays or let a loved one remember you this season when they light up the Hush Limited-Edition Cinnamon Nutmeg candle. With the goal to make you feel warm and toasty during the holidays, this candle with a scent blend of sweet and spicy Cinammon and Nutmeg will transport you to a cosy cabin in the woods whilst snow is falling outside. With these picks, you’ll be armed and ready to not just feel hope but also spread it — this holiday season and well over on to the next year.
