The Christmas season is rolling around the corner, but with looming work deadlines and keeping up with the kids at home, getting your Christmas gift list checked is probably the last thing on your mind. Here are some hacks for those in a pinch!


Picture This

Gift your loved ones a collection of your favourite memories together! With online photo albums and cloud storage, we often forget how meaningful physical photographs can be. Curate your best photo memories together in a personalised scrapbook or frame up a collage of your favourite shots. This is a simple but meaningful gift to reminisce special moments with friends and family.

Gift in a Jar

Known for your luscious brownies or moist red velvet cupcakes? Give away your secret recipe this Christmas! Measure out the dry ingredients into an adorable mason jar and attach the recipe so your giftee can prepare their own sweet treat. Add a festive touch by decorating the jar with tassels or glitter. The simplicity and versatility of this gift makes it a great last minute option. Tip: if baking isn’t your forte, consider giving out jars of homemade chilli instead!

Wrap It Out

Getting your gifts perfectly wrapped can be a struggle when that party you’re headed to is in two days. A great tip is to get your presents professionally wrapped right after you purchase them. From now to Tue 25 Dec 2018, Takashimaya is offering customers free gift wrapping service for any purchase made at Takashimaya Department Store or Takashimaya Square, B2. Purchase your gifts and have them immediately wrapped with the unique one-tape Japanese wrapping technique!
