D.cisions magazine - Issue 6

Team Singapore & Deloitte Netball star Charmaine Soh gets you in the mood for some festive shopping with her 10 cool gift ideas!

Below $10

The Body Shop Shower Gel

This unisex fragrant gel is small and convenient to bring around while you are on vacation! There is usually a 1-for-1 promotion during the festive season so it’s definitely a good deal. You can choose from a variety of flavours: mango, strawberry, pink grapefruit, passionfruit, olive and more!

Nike Water Bottle

Looking sleek and trendy, this gift not only stands out in its appearance, but is also a practical gift for most people! It costs just $9.90.

Below $20

Royce Pure Chocolate 

The gift that appeals to both guys and girls. This irresistible chocolate has a beautiful texture and melts in your mouth. What’s more, it is individually packed so it can be easily shared among your loved ones. My favourite is the white chocolate flavour!

MUJI Hanging Travel Case

This travel case makes an excellent gift choice for those who likes to travel. Organise and store your toiletries into the different compartments and hang them on bathroom hooks or shower curtain rails.

Gift for your partners

GTA Gold Wireless Bluetooth Earpiece

Go wireless with this golden earpiece which offers a clear and rich audio. Your partner can enjoy the best quality music while jogging in windy conditions or in a noisy environment. Best for music-lovers!

GoPro Hero 5

Pamper your beloved one with a GoPro Hero 5 – an ultimate gift choice for this festive holiday! Create memories together with this handy yet powerful camera. Great for activities like skydiving, swimming, diving, and hiking. It’s small, durable and offers storage space for 4K videos and 10MP Photos. *Hints to my own partner*

Gift for your parents

Cloud9 Inflatable Lounge

Need to take a rest during your vacation or just want to relax on the beach? This ultra-light inflatable lounge allows your parents do so comfortably and quickly. No, you don’t need to blow it up to inflate it, just swing it through the air and be ready to lounge within seconds! Pick their favourite colour from a wide variety of colour options.

Philips Avance Collection Juicer

Health is wealth! What better gift can you give your parents than a quality juicer to treat themselves with healthy homemade juice? Unlike other juicers in the market, this machine extracts up to 10% more juice. No pre-cutting is needed as there is an extra-large feeding tube to allow large fruits and vegetables to fit through. It is also designed for easy cleaning with its polished sieve and integrated pulp container and smooth surface.

Gifts for your siblings

GTA Gold-Plated Wireless Bluetooth Speakers

Roughly the size of a small rock, it qualifies as one of the world’s smallest wireless speakers, making it the perfect travel companion with its high portability. It may be small, but the bass is strong. This pretty gold-plated gift is a brilliant way to keep your siblings upbeat this holiday season.

iPico Handheld LED Personal Projector

Watch a movie with friends without crowding around a laptop with this handheld LED Personal Projector. You can set up your home theatre anywhere. This highly portable device fits nicely in your pocket and is great for viewing photos, videos, or movies.
