Hohoho! The time when we find fir trees indoors, carols playing in malls, and overuse ’tis and ’twas (guilty as charged) is here! Yes, it’s Christmas time! And you know what that means—it’s time to start thinking about the perfect gifts for your loved ones. Whether or not you’re celebrating the festival, it’s a season for getting gifts for our loved ones and also for friends and colleagues. Running out of ideas for gifts? Let our list of gifts for certain “stereotypes” help with that!
For the health-conscious
Signature Market, home of healthy snacks, has a range of gift boxes for the season. Ranging from RM50-RM200, they contain wholesome yet delicious snacks like nuts, powdered drinks, and popcorn for the health nut (pun intended). Check out their array of gourmet treats that will take your taste buds on a journey of pure bliss!
For the beauty queen
Nothing beats the joy of opening the tiny drawers in advent calendars! Originally used as a countdown to Christmas, most major beauty brands these days have capitalized on this, providing us with boxes filled with drawer after drawer of joy and surprises. Check out the advent calendars from Kiehl’s, Jo Malone, Kens Apothecary, Lush, and The Body Shop.
Bonus: Beauty advent calendars aside, some advent calendars are more “gender-friendly”. Nespresso and Royce let you enjoy the thrill of these surprise boxes even if you’re not into beauty!
For the real-life Rapunzel
For the ones who want to improve their luscious locks or the wannabe Rapunzel, Cher’s MERRY cher’s-MAS gift box is for you! A homegrown brand by local beauty and influencer Elecher, it was birthed after her post-pregnancy hair-fall problem. The Balancing Shampoo from Cher's is 100% sulfate-free, silicone-free and paraben-free. It is the saviour for an over-active oily scalp and helps to increase hair volume and density. Get the “cher’smas gift box” that comes with a Balancing Shampoo and a Repairing Conditioner here!
For the gym junkie/sports lover
You can start by considering the basic essentials they need, like equipment and apparel. Local sport apparel brands like Livlola and Hwoofit provide all sorts of activewear and some simple equipment as well. Going up the spectrum, you may also consider giving them a ClassPass gift card, which provides thousands of classes and appointments to choose from.
For the picky ones
There’s always the option of gift cards! If you would like to let the recipient choose what they like from a certain brand, gift cards are the way to go! Especially when dealing with various designs and when you don’t want to get them the wrong size or colour, leave the decision-making to them.
Oh, did you know SundaysFit provides three gift card options? Get them here!
If you thought that all of the options above were too niche, let me give you this—Sunday’s Fit tees. Our tees are comfy indoors and eye-catching outdoors. What’s best is that it fits just anyone, so it’s great for gift exchange too! For a warmer option, we have hoodies and sweatshirts that are equally chic and cosy. Whether you are a sports lover or beauty queen, as long as you are someone who wears clothes, you will find our irresistible outfits easy to reach for 😉
No matter what gifts you choose, we hope that the recipient feels your sincerity. Similarly, as you unbox your gifts this year, think of the one who gave you the gift instead of the gift itself. Enjoy this season of gifting, and don't get lost in all the dazzle!
