We’ve reminded you right from the beginning of December to start shopping for the people you love because you don’t want to be scrambling, and yet, here you are, like we predicted, rummaging for ideas on the web for last minute gift ideas. Don’t worry, we’re never going to leave you high and dry. We’ve got five last minute gift ideas that will make you look like you have put in a lot of thought and effort into it, and to fit your budget, no matter what it is (because, yes, that’s how much we love you).
Under $10: DIY Body Scrubs
We are unabashed scrub junkies here at Sassy and what better way is there to show how much you love your BFF by a scrub you’ve whipped up with your two hands. Never mind that the costs are low (get your bottle from Daiso!), you’re scoring really high marks on the personalised, made-with-love factor.
Under $30: Matcha Jam
If your friend loves dulce de leche and Matcha, a spoonful of this jam is going to send her to heaven, and back before she goes in for another spoonful. This baby has been imported from Kyoto and trust us when we say this, it’s worth every single green goopy bite.
Under $50: Organic Food Delivered Straight To Doorstep
While we find immense pleasure in grocery shopping, but there are times, like now, when everybody is scrambling around the malls like mice that we want to stay out of the hustle and bustle as much as possible. If your friend is anything like us, you can simply order their favourite foods from The Organic Grocer and have it delivered right to their doorstep. Choose from organic pesto, to growth hormone and antibiotic-free chicken breasts, and while you’re at it, you might as well get your free-range organic turkey for your Crimbo shindigs.
Under $70: Tickets to Beauty and The Beast
If your girlfriend is a sucker for the fairytale, she will definitely enjoy a night out to watch Beauty and The Beast’s touring production which will arrive in Singapore in March 2015. Indulge the little girls in you by dressing up and having a ball of a time while watching Belle get dressed up for her ball. You may not get the best seats in the house, but at least you can definitely hear the music!
$100 and above: Mr & Mrs Smith Gift Cards
If you’re feeling a little generous and your friend is the girl who has everything, boutique hotel experts Mr & Mrs Smith’s Get a Room! hotel gift cards will make the perfect last minute gift. Sold in denominations of $100, $300 voucher can book her a staycation at the artistic and design-led New Majestic Hotel and here’s hoping she’ll take you with her!
