Personalised Gift Boxes
Christmas is approaching fast, and if you’ve left your holiday shopping to the last minute (again), you’re probably panicking over where to get thoughtful gifts at short notice.
But instead of stressing and scrambling to buy generic, last-minute gifts like fancy body soap, opt to gift your loved ones a personalised gift box this festive holiday.
Convenient to purchase, readily-packed, and customisable, choose from these 10 boxes that offer a personal touch without blowing your budget.
Created by two roommates, The Roomie Box is a start-up company that curates personalised gift boxes based on the recipients’ interests. All you have to do is tell them who the present is for, what they like, and The Roomie Box will cherry-pick items within your given budget.
Regular pre-made boxes including stationery and coffee sets start at S$20, while Premium customised boxes start at S$50. You can even add a free personalised message handwritten by the team.
Order through their Instagram @theroomiebox.
With Givgiv.co, you can shop from a range of globally-sourced items such as handmade candles and leather notebooks for your special SO.
To make your gift extra memorable, you can include a personalised message and Givgiv.co will have your present wrapped and delivered to your recipient just in time for Christmas!
