I can't believe how fast December is flying by, in just 10 days, Christmas will be here and I'm barely ready for it! Are you feeling the same way? 

One of the hardest things to do before Christmas is to select the right gift for the right person. You may think that it's an easy feat if you know the person well but if you do, you've probably gotten them the usual gifts you do on their birthdays, anniversaries, special occasions for as long as you've known them! They are probably expecting something a little different this year. 

In fact, I think buying a gift for an acquaintance is much easier because then, it opens up more to more options and you won't have such a hard time scouring for THE perfect gift. But if all fails, at least you have an excuse of not knowing them very well, so they will forgive you! However, I always feel it's better to do a little sussing out on what the person likes before going in blind and buying something that the person would not like or use. 

So where better to go, then to one of my favourite places to shop - Crabtree & Evelyn, they have a massive gift collection that comprises of Body Products, Festive Foods, Home Fragrances and more recently, Skincare!

As you may know, Crabtree & Evelyn is famous for their signature fragrance, Evelyn Rose, which features a heart of uniquely scented Evelyn Rose petals and peach nectar, surrounded by an elegant jasmine and violet accord with accents of bergamot and sensuous amber that can never go wrong with the ladies! 

However, in the light of Christmas, Crabtree & Evelyn has re-released their classic range, Noël and also created a new and enchanting fragrance, HollyBerry that would sure to delight all your senses! Not only are they  limited editions, they also come in the most beautiful Christmas designs. Time to share the joy and spread the love! :)


A perennial favourite, Noël is an irresistible blend of fresh balsams, persimmon and citrus fused with spicy star anise, clove and nutmeg. The classic Crabtree & Evelyn home fragrance is warming and welcoming.


An enchanting fragrance inspired by crimson berries and fresh, green leaves, this fruity and spicy fragrance captures the magic of the winter season with notes of red currant, coriander, fig, nutmeg and precious frankincense.

And there's more.. 


These Hand Therapy Trio Tin Sets make THE perfect gift for girlfriends, colleagues and mothers! I picked out one each for my Mom and my Godmom and they adore it! Not only are they ultra-moisturing, they are also compact and they like the new tube which allows for easier dispensing of the lotion.
One thing I regretted leaving the store without was this!! I had been eyeing this treasure since I walked in because it's really worth it! 12 tubes for only S$83 is a real bargain!


During Christmas season is the only time where brands would come out with many functional and amazing looking travel cases! Don't these look chic?


Crabtree & Evelyn also retails these vintage-looking Vanity Cases that make for great portable storage for your make-up, accessories and whatever you can think of!


Whether the receiver is a male or a female, a cookie lover or tea addict, you are bound to find something that will suit their tastebuds! A plethora of fine foods in different assortments at your choosing!

Hopefully you'll be find the right gifts or even pick out something for yourself at Crabtree & Evelyn this festive season! Happy Holidays! :)
