Christmas is almost here. So you know what that means! Gifts, and lots of them. But picking out the perfect gift can be a daunting task. This becomes even more troublesome if you want the gift to be memorable.

So with Christmas being just next month, there really isn’t much time left to be dilly-dallying in picking the right one. Fear not though, as we are here to lend a hand in suggesting some of the more unique gifts for your love ones or yourself (why not?) this coming Christmas. Without further ado, here are 10 gifts we think would be perfect for the jolliest time of the year.

1. Christmas albums

Every year around Christmas, we will be bombarded by holiday tunes left and right all aiming to fill the air waves with Christmas cheers. This year is no different. Michael Bublé and Mariah Carey may be the King and Queen of Christmas music respectively, but we’re positive these new albums will give them a run for their money.

2. Time to embrace your inner nerd with books

Armed with a variety of books all for an affordable price, you can be sure to find a book just right for the person you’re giving it to. Get some good bargains at BookXcess or Big Bad Wolf.

3. Amazin’ Graze

More than just an immediate snack, Amazin’ Graze has transform daily comfort food into indulgent holiday gifts. “Christmas is a time when friends and family share over an abundance of food that is usually loaded with sugars. We crafted our collection with nutrition in mind while still delivering the indulgence that Malaysians seek. We want to spread the message of making healthy choices without compromising on taste.” said Vivian Hor, head of R&D.

The limited-edition Discover Magic Christmas 2019 collection comes with the new Jubilee Apple Crumble granola, together with Frosted Cinnamon Nut Mix and Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Bites.

4. Irvins Salted Egg Chips

Irv Travels International Delivery Campaign allows foodies to pick a box (big, small, mystery box) before selecting your desired salted egg items. All it takes is a few simple clicks to secure yourself a box of these bad boys.

5. Christmas buffets

Since we’re on the topic of food, there’s no denying that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Skip the tedious preparations and treat yourself and loved ones to a scrumptious Christmas buffet later this month. We’ve got plenty of suggestions for you here.

6. Sk-II: Facial Treatment Essence Fantasista Utamaro Limited Edition

It’s like receiving ang pao or duit raya during Chinese New Year or Hari Raya, only now you have an excuse to shop at Uniqlo or get your coffee fix at the nearest Starbucks outlet. Plus, if your friend hasn’t gotten on the binge-watching train, a Netflix gift card is recommended.
