The end of the year is fast approaching, and with it comes comforting sights, sounds, and tastes.

But there’s one thing that can be quite uncomfortable: gift ideas, whether it’s for your loved ones, colleagues, or that friend you only see every Christmas.

To make things easier, here’s a list of places you can get gifts from if you're too lazy to rack your brain for ideas.


Gifts & Home Decoration

What do you get for the friend who loves organising and throwing parties?

Help them stock up by getting more party supplies for them, of course.

Consider dropping by Chin Giap Soon to get your hands on anything from balloons to party decorations and festive decor like wreaths, baubles and garlands. 

Alternatively, check out Mr DIY if you’re more of a do-it-yourself kind of person.

For those looking to get into the spirit of Christmas, you can transform your home into a Christmas wonderland with a premium range of ready-designed Christmas trees, and sparkly display ornaments.

United Square

Gifts for the family

If you’re shopping for the little ones at home or wish to buy gifts for the family, United Square would be a good place to head to.

Get your hands on the trendiest toys at Toy’R’US, or children’s books and stationery from My Greatest Child.

If you need to get a gift for someone who is really into beauty and skincare, check out Perth’s Key for skin and body care products, which are said to be gentle on the skin.

Fitness wear

If you’re buying a gift for someone who is a fitness junkie, look no further than [email protected] Square. There, you’ll find a variety of stores that offer exercise gear ranging from shoes to apparel.

Head to New Balance to purchase a pair of new kicks, or visit Skechers to score deals on workout gear or sports shoes.
