Christmas – the most wonderful time of the year is almost here! Even Singapore, normally sunny and humid, is now rainy (and still humid). With the temperature on the lower end of our equatorial scale, we can at least pretend we are in rainy London on the darkest of days.

This sense of cosiness is bringing me to hot chocolate drinks, Christmas songs and, yes, Christmas gift shopping!

First up, let's get into some festive tunes to set the mood.

Next up, let's dive right into gifts that we have categorised by budget, because money is hard to earn, and you want your presents to be both useful and friendly to the wallet. Better start early, especially when there's Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals ongoing.

Happy festive shopping!
