Pleasant gifts for your significant other
1. Reminisce the good times with a Polaroid
Photos act as a return ticket to a point in time, and nothing beats the feeling of a physical copy to hold on to. For those picture-perfect moments, there’s the Polaroid Go Instant Film Camera. Sporting a clean and retro-chic design, this series is an evolution of the original Polaroid cameras from the 1970s. Chances are, you’ll get good use out of this Polaroid camera. Making lasting memories is, after all, one great way to keep the flame alive.
Send the polaroid via SingPost’s smartpac Medium (330mm x 240mm).
2. Stay organised with a business card holder
Braun Büffel is a company with 133 years’ worth of legacy in the art of leatherwork — and this flat card holder is where luxury meets technical expertise. It’s crafted in fine-grained printed calf leather, boasting a clean satin finish and topped with 4 card slots. In short — a classy design that passes as a great gift idea for women and men to stand out from the crowd when handing out business cards like a boss.

Fun & Wacky gifts for your buddies
3. Have a ball of fun with the Jenga mini
Jenga’s one of those games that never fail to entertain everyone at parties. Nothing beats the nervous bated breath and anticipation that comes with the game, up to the very moment where someone stacks a block and causes the tower to crash. This particular one is pocket-sized too, which means better transportability. While it may be mini, it still promises a whole lot of fun!
Send the Jenga mini via SingPost’s smartpac Small (220mm x 150mm).
4. Enjoy your night reads with a flexible reading light
Who says that desk lamps need to look ordinary? This night light from Miss Ho Say is a squishy ambient light that comes in the shape of a soup dumpling, aka Xiao Long Bao.
Powered by USB charging or 3 AAA batteries, this little lamp is not only easy to transport around the house, it's flexible too. This will certainly brighten up any area of your BFF’s room — especially great for avid bookworms in need of some extra light while reading.
