Christmas is a celebration that happens all over the world. Although it began as a Christian religious festival celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, many people now join in the celebrations for the fun of it.
In Singapore, Christmas is a national holiday and many people celebrate it with their friends and family. One of the most important traditions during Christmas is gift-giving.
It’s a way to show your thankfulness and appreciation to someone and celebrate the special holiday season. Here are some of our best ideas when it comes to Christmas gifts.
1. Fresh Flowers
Flowers have been used to show thanks and gratefulness for centuries. Some of the most common flowers that represent Christmas include Red Roses, Poinsettias, Amaryllis and Carnations.
A bouquet that represents Christmas should ideally be very bright and filled with blooms in Maroon, pink, burgundy and other shades of red. Flowers are a very effective way of brightening up someone’s day, and you can send flowers in Singapore with Farm Florist at any time with our 24 hour delivery service.
We offer cheap flower delivery in Singapore as well as express delivery within one hour of your order. If you’re sending a Christmas bouquet, one of the flower arrangements from Farm Florist you can consider is our Premium Yuletide Christmas Hamper, which is a flower arrangement that comes with assorted chocolates, Ferrero Roche and gift cards.
The fact that it is already in a basket makes it more convenient for your recipient to display, as they don’t need to re-arrange the flowers or find a container for it.

2. A Music Box
Music boxes may seem old fashioned, but they make wonderful conversation pieces. Moreover, they can also be very whimsical and conjure feelings of a fictional fantasy world.
These days, music boxes come in different types of materials and designs. You can have sweet, rotating musical boxes made of ceramic, or carved wooden ones that are more rustic. They can also range from ornate to simple and minimalistic.
When choosing the right music box for a recipient, it’s important to take into consideration their own personal taste. The most effective way to do this is to observe how they decorate their home and their personalities.
One place you can get whimsical, wooden music boxes in Singapore is at OKdodoo on Robinson Road. Here, they can customise any music box to your specifications.
3. Board Games or Card Games
Board gaming is making a trendy comeback, as more people begin to appreciate its charm. You may think that board games include typical things like snakes and ladders, or Cluedo. However, the range and complexities of board games have definitely evolved greatly in the past few decades.
Board games are suitable gifts if you’re buying something for a family or a group of people, since board games typically require 4 or more players. Some of the most popular family friendly board games include Catan, Risk, Pandemic and Zombiecide.
Some fun games can also take the form of cards, which can be played by even more people. You’ll want to check out Exploding Kittens, Cards Against Humanity and Apples to Apples.
4. A Modern Tea Set
Due to the hectic lifestyles we keep in this day and age, tea drinking has enjoyed a resurgence. This is especially true for soothing herbal and fruit teas. That’s why giving someone a tea set is a good idea.
A modern tea set is usually made of clear materials, like glass blends or ceramic. Some come with a warmer where you can keep the teapot warm with a tea light.
It would also be great if you can find a set that includes tea bags or loose tea leaves too, as this will make it more convenient for the receiver to start on their tea drinking journey. Tea is such a versatile gift that it suits anyone regardless of age or gender. Plus, it’s a very healthy habit to cultivate too as tea contains antioxidants that can prevent cancer and heart disease.
5. Scented Candles
Another soothing gift you can present this Christmas is scented candles. Scented candles are suitable for any time of the year, but they’re especially appreciated around the end of the year when the holiday seasons come around.
Different scents have different functions. For example, scents like lime and citrus are great for energizing and refreshing the room; while scents like lavender and ylang ylang are great for winding down and calming the mind.
Apart from scented candles, you can also give essential oils and a diffuser, which will pretty much function the same way.
6. Succulent Plants
Succulents are a group of plants with thick and fleshy leaves, designed for water storage. They typically grow in deserts and other arid areas.
Succulents are getting a lot of attention lately from hobbyists and house plant enthusiasts because they’re relatively easy to grow and maintain. They don’t need much water or trimming and can generally live very well on their own, given the right soil and enough sunlight.
Succulents are sometimes sold together with cacti. However, succulents remain popular as they are generally thorn-free compared to plants in the cactus family.
You’ll be able to find many different types of succulents being sold here at Farm Florist, and can even get flower delivery in Singapore for cheap.
Farm Florist offers succulents in many different forms, like in a terrarium together with other plants and a mini landscape. You can try our Burligio Ready Made Terrarium which is a small garden by itself.
